Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.0 V6 AT: Mitsubishi Montero Sport

Customer Question
Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2000 failed...
Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2000 failed during a trip and an untrained town mech repaired the collector brushes. Unfortunately somethig was affected in that area because there is a notorious power loss even with a minor slope when autom gearbox begin to go into lower speeds. I´m not sure but also noticed de 4WD light remain flashing all the time. I need some guidance about where to look for broken or trapped hoses, cables, etc. beginning where is the motor. I´m located in South America and dont have a manual for location.

Hi and good morning .

So after the starter motor was repaired you are having these two issue ,engine power low and 4wd light flashing ,

Battery was disconnected when repairs where being done but ignition key was left in the ignition ..

When the engine is running is the [service engine soon] light " ON "

Do you have the use of a OBD II diagnostic scan tool or OBD code reader ..

Sorry I´m a native spanish speaker located at Chile. I feel more confident reading and writing. My conversation skills are rather poor.
No particular engine noises. Some weeks ago have shown an hesitation of a couple of seconds to reach idle speed speed but dissapeared. Yes, the "service engine soon" light come on then off. All lights except for the blinking 4WD are normal. There is an additional symptom that appeared after the starter repair: The "anti lock" light also comes on when stopping at traffic light or close to stopping and remains so for the rest of the trip.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
More exactly "anti lock" light comes on after a prolonged slowing down or deceleration.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The ABS light coming on could be related to the four wheel drive issue. A failed wheel speed sensor could be causing both issues.

Outside of visual inspection of components such as wheel speed sensors and the transfer case motor, a scan tool to determine what fault codes are setting and turning the warning lights will be necessary. Can you check the physical condition of the speed sensors, transfer case motor and the components' related wiring?

I´ll try. Do we need engine, other specific or all codes? What do you mean by transfer case motor? Couls provide a location diagram or a link to it? Thanks.
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The transfer case shift motor is the electric motor on the transfer case that controls transfer case range and mode.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting in the ABS module; it would be best to use a full capability scan tool to see what codes are setting in all modules on the vehicle.

1. The transfer case motor sounds me for electrically operated 4WD. I'm in doubt about it ; mine is manual operated (a short stick).
2. Scanner operators say that codes are stored only in coincidence with "Service Engine Soon" not present in this case. Is that true? Is scanning still a valid tool to see parameters available?
Thanks,
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Fault codes set in a module when a failure in a monitored component or system is found. The ABS light is on because a fault code has set in the ABS module, you also mentioned the engine light coming on so there are also codes setting in the engine controller. We need to start by seeing what fault codes have set in these modules.

They run The tests and displayed results for every subsystem and all them reporyed "no Symptom codes available" also individual ítems were displayed. i.e. for sensors we move the Montero and checked their operation. Also for gearbox, etc.

The ABS light isn't on then?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
At léast during scanning w/ car parked the light was off; except while scanning as result of the process, I suppose. After rush time will check while driving when usually the light comes on.
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

If the light has been coming on and codes have not been cleared with a scan tool or battery disconnect then they are still present.
