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.
