View Full Version : 4wd light- top portion blinking.
10-28-2009, 01:12 AM
My monty's front tires on the indicator in the dash are blinking. It seems to be in 2wd alright and all the 4wd gears work ok. Just wont stop the darn blinking. Any ideas?

I don't know much about the Gen II Montero's, but if it is in 2WD and 4WD still works, it could be a faulty or dirty relay going to the dash.

Thanks for checking out my build. The pajero club of victoria is a great resource for all Montero's and Pajero's. Let us know when and how you get this resolved.

I sure will, checked under the radio because it is aftermarket and everything is fine there. Checked the 4wd vacuum solenoids and they were both way outta spec. the yellow dot one had 98 ohm worth of resistance and the other one(blue dot) I couldn't even get a reading on (open circuit). Gonna check around till the weekend to see who has some of these cheap. Hopefully replacing these will do the trick! I'll keep my fingers crossed till then. I'll keep you posted!

Oh yeah, datrupr..... Your monty is freakin sweet!!!! Expect some questions outta me in regards to a build up of my own. Little by little.

Thank you, scrubber. It is a work in progress and still has a long way to go before I get it where I want it. I should be getting some more goodies for it really soon. I am like a kid the night before christmas as I cannot wait for my new kit to arrive (hopefully UPS will have it delivered soon, I'm getting anxious). It'll be sweet. And as usual, I have to shamelessly plug Wil and Wen at Sierra Expeditions, they can get you goodies for your Monty when you want to kit it out some more, and also, post up some pics of yours, we have a lot of Monty love here.

Well, it's a bit rainy here today so, I'll wait till its a better day to take some pictures. In the meantime, if anyone knows where to find the 4wd vacuum solenoids cheap feel free to let me know! :) Just changed the transmission fluid, antifreeze, and lubed up the grease fittings. I've put some 31 10.50 BFG All Terrain KOs on it and raised the front a lil bit. Repaired the lower control arm and sway bar bushings for the left rear. Put an alternator in it. I still gotta replace the timing belt, water pump, and cam seals. I believe the cam seal is leaking on the alternator. In the meantime, I'll just keep cleaning the alternator off periodically. I've put a tow rope, tool set, air compressor, first aid kit, flashlight, tie down straps, cpr mask, hatchet, and a few other goodies in it. I'm on a limited budget since I'm in school at the age of 31. I'll be getting some KYB mono tube shocks for it soon. Also, I expect to add a snorkel kit:snorkel:, new front bumper, slide rails, winch, cargo basket:elkgrin:, and who knows what else. BTW, I've posted some pics of it before I got it in another thread.
