Im sure that someone out there has had the same problem, I have the NM exceed and recently I have what I believe to be and electrical problem (when the vehicle is cool) as cool as it can get in Townsville
The problem is that the 4X4 display lights on the dask will flash the centre (amber) light and not display the normal 2H mode.
When this happens I can not select any of the other 4x4 functions.
When the vehicle warms up I can stop, turn off the motor, restart the motor and on most occasions the selector will go back to normal.
My problen is that the local 4X4 Pajero dealer/service centre wants to replace everything in the circuit.
Can anyone help me with pinpointing the fault.
Many thanks

Have you tried posting on the Mitsubishi Pajero Club Forum? Someone there may be able to help.

I have had 2 Pajeros, but neither have had the problem you describe.

I hope you get it sorted.

Cheers

Very common in the NH/J/K/L for the super-select to flash when engaging 4WD. The fix is to either go 4WD'ing more often so it gets used and engages properly, or to get under the truck and spray every electrical connection with WD40/CRC and then go bush bashing more often.

As mentioned above very common problem in your model. Easiest and cheapest fix is to do what you have already been doing ie: turn off motor and restart. I had exactly the same problem with my NM exceed.

Heres one for you Pajero owners

The mechanic at the bus company bought one 2 years ago brand new and had eternal gearbox troubles

HE sold it and told me the trouble was the aircon drain was placed incorrectly and draining over some electrical connectors associated with the tranny.

They did have a small problem some time ago with the aircon hose. See here for some details:

I would have thought any connector would be waterproof under any vehicle.....

Very common problem

Had NM for 11 years and problem is two fold -

vacuum lines can cause this, so check them and replace or cut off ends and re attach

if this doesn't fix it look at electrical shorts

hope this helps Baz
