My Mitsubishi Pajero Junior has the Abs light on and 4×4 is flashing what could be the cause?
Most likely a bad wheel speed sensor. When this happens ABS is disabled and also the 4×4 system because the computer cannot determine the individual wheel speeds.
Do I need to replace the antilock brake sensor? And also the car just shut down whilst I was driving today, can Abs cause that to happen too?
No, an ABS problem cannot cause the vehicle to stall. There are wheel speed sensors for each wheel, and other different sensors. The computer would need to be scanned for the stored codes to find out what part of the system has a problem.
Okay thanks on the speed sensor i’ll have it checked. Any idea why my car just shuts down while driving? it has happened twice 2 days in a row. Today I was doing 80 KM and the car just went off but all the lights on the dash board were on. I pulled to the side of the road and put in in neutral, started the engine & I was on the move again.
That could be a loose connection somewhere, bad ignition module or ignition switch to cause an immediate shut off. Try moving around the wiring harnesses under the hood with it running to see if you can get it to die out. That would tell where a loose connection may be.
Thanks I’ll do that this evening. It’s not a nice feeling driving something that just turns off. I’d hate to be mince meat if it turned off at an intersection.Is the 4×4 light linked to the Abs?
Yes, the 4×4 will not function properly on your Mitsubishi with an ABS problem but cause it to stall.
Whats the best Solution to sort out the ABS light?
Get the ABS computer codes scanned to see what part of the ABS has a problem.
Thanks a million for your help, i’ll check the wires and get back to you tomorrow.
1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

I have a ford aerostar that I bought off Craigslist the owner told me that the radiator was the only thing messed up cracked leaking out coolant but once I come to a stop it starts blowing smoke could it be just the radiator that’s messed up? My ford aerostar is a 1993
Well have audi 2001 won’t start
i try every thing to my Jr. just to see if the things works properly,
1. my Abs Flash -So i try to full stop on a wet surface my Abs works fine.
2. Engage the 4×4 then make a u turn it works fine, i realize it must be the censor,i remove the sensor connection to transmission’s 4×4, work fine no more flashing lights, down side i cannot know if my 4×4 engage and abs working.
3. my Jr. also shutdown while i driving.
JR. have a built in ignition coil, change the bottom part first the one connected to the coil it self that connected to the spark plugs if not you have problem with the coil.
and this will solve you problem, and no problem till now. driving my JR. for almost 5 yr now. no problem
I own a 1996 Mitsubishi Gallant S with an interior power lock switch, but it does not have a power switch to unlock the door(s). I was wondering if I buy a keyless entry kit and have it installed in the car, will it only remotely be able to lock the doors, but not unlock at least the drivers door? Or will it be able to remotely unlock the door(s) as well once installed?
ProTech: If the car is equipped only with the ability to lock the doors via a power switch, then a keyless entry system will probably not work. There has to be a lock actuator that can function in both directions by either a switch or remote. There are aftermarket kits that basically provide power door locks. You’d have to at least get power locks installed before you add any keyless entry feature.
I have a 3000gt . Currently it has issues starting up and when it does it runs on only 4 cylinders can anyone help me to get a hint of what is wrong with it?
ProTech: Well, if it is only running on 4 cylinders, then you have a misfire condition on the the other two cylinders. Possible causes are bad spark plugs, ignition wires, coils, or even fuel injectors. You’d really need to do some diagnosis to exactly locate the problem. Check for spark, check for fuel, check injector pulse, etc.
