Dear Sirs, I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2 di-d Equipe, the 4 wheeel drive indicator lamps on the dashboard (the green lights) do not work, also not the diff lock dashboard lamp does not illuminate. Mechanically the 4-wheel system seems to work ok but there is no indication of what is going on. I have changed all the dash bulbs but still there is no dash illumination. Is there a fuse anywhere or sensors or could it be the dash unit itself ? I would appreciate any help at all. Apart from this, the car seems to run perfectly ok. Many thanks in advance - Gordon

I've got an intermittent problem that when I turn left either have been driving slowly or at speed and slowing down to take a left turn my automatic engine cuts out and send the vehicle across the mouth of the junction instead of making the turn, This has happened after a cold start and after the engine has bee. Th Bing for over an hour ! Can anyone please give me a clue as the week before the power steering belt broke so had that replaced and then I was advised it could be my power steering g pump so I've had that changed too!!

Eric Williams, Middlesex

Mitsubishi Shogun

Hello all. I've got a small problem that's driving me mad. I have a 2004 Shogun, 3.2 Diesel, DiD LWB, Elegance. Lovely car etc. except a while ago the radio / cassette & display unit stopped working properly, although it still plays - or is locked into, one radio station only & will play cassettes, but it will not show anything at all on the display screen, its totally blank, in addition to this the CD changer no longer works! The radio itself is a factory fitted Mitsubishi "Genuine Audio" unit. I have tried everything possible to be able to change the radio stations & get the screen back up & running but no luck yet, could a fuse or two have blown maybe? It will make my Christmas if someone knows what's the problem & maybe has an answer. Cheers

Mitsubishi Shogun

Hi all, I have a '95 3L V6 LWB pajero, on the way home from work the other day I noticed the steering got really heavy and when steering, the oil/batt and a/T lights come on. So when I got it home, I ran the engine up and turned the steering wheel and all the belts stopped. I thought I'd check and make sure it's not a loss of steering fluid, I topped this up to bring it up to the max (it wasn't below the min before) since then, all the belts look like they spin, but I still have no steering. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Thanks Nathan

Answer this question

Collin Mangenah, Zimbabwe

Mitsubishi Shogun

I live in Zimbabwe (being Zimbabwean) and my car is a pre-owned Mitsubishi Pajero/Shogun 3.5 V6 GDI Exceed that I imported from Japan. Yesterday afternoon I started the car and it happily responded as it always does. However on trying to engage drive the gearbox would not respond which to the reverse or drive gears. I switched off and tried again to no avail. My wife (only concerned about getting to her favourite Food Lovers Market store) ordered me to move over and restarted the car. Upon revving the engine a bit the gearbox responded and we were on our way. There were no problems except once when I was accelerating and I felt and unusual lunge forward as it changed gears. This morning the same problem recurred although it went away after applying a bit of pressure on the accelerator. Please help diagnose my problem. At this point I donot want to take my car to a workshop yet as they usually oblige by coming up with far fetched theories that sometimes entail stripping the car only to acknowledge later that it wasnt necessary. From your experiences what could be the source of the problem. Could it be a minor issue requiring only an ATF oil change or something?

Answers

chances are high that your ATF LEVEL is low just try and add the transmission fluid , if the level is fine I suggest you change the transmission filter heavens from Zimbabwe

hi everyone, I think I have big trouble. I have a 2001 shogun 3.2 eclipse. When I was out it just cut out for no reason, got it towed back and found that the management fuse had blown, replaced it and it blew again, tried again, my mate, bless him!! pushed the fuse terminals together , a lot of smoke came from below around the starter motor area. I was told that the rear of the injector pump was the cause, with the electric being earthed. I would like some advice about this and do it myself. I cannot see that the pump is at fault. I hope that you can help . Thanks Richard

Hi my pajero 2.8 td is overheating after approx. 15 miles ,The rad is pushing the coolant into the expansion tank but doesn't sook it back, changed the thermostat and waterpump but no difference been told it could be the head gasket but no water in oil or oil cap ,no white reek from exhaust and only bubbles out rad when it is overflowing when engine has been idling for some time no bubbles when water level is below hose to expansion tank at very top of rad,viscous fan and heater work fine could it be an airlock in cooling system stopping coolant circulation or am I clutching at straws and more likely head trouble there does seem to be a bit of back pressure after a while in top rad hose and doesn't seem to be any leeks that I can see is it worth trying to flush cooling system and taking rad out to backflush and new rad cap or am I resigned to looking at gasket and head its just that I heard the 2.8 was notorious for airlocks ( help ) cheers Darren

Hi. The oil pressure light on my 1996 2500TD SWB GLS Shogun occasionally comes on for a short period after starting and then goes off after about 1 mile of driving. Checked oil level and seems OK. Is this an indication of oil pump problems or could it be something less serious? The car has done about 90K miles and was serviced about 6 months ago. Cheers.

Hi, the dash light code P0299 (low turbo pressure) comes on, but intermittently. Sometimes the car goes into limp mode, sometimes not. It can be temporarily fixed by a diagnostic tool or by stopping/starting the car. It has been checked twice with different tools, today no code is showing. BUT the engine is jumping/missing when the accelerator pedal is depressed in neutral and when the rev needle is between 2 and 3, indicating some underlying problem, but what? We don't want to be running to and from to a garage with nothing sorted. Any ideas please?
