4wd select (or not)

#1 by Rem708 , Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:02 am

Hi Guys,
I personally have a 2005 K74 and its just spot on. However, my occasional work truck is a 2016 double cab 2.4 d.

None of the good old 4wd leaver but the silly rotary switch. This truck spends a lot of time on and off road and with the present weather requires 4wd a lot!.
So one comes off tarmac onto wet grass so you twiddle the rotary knob and the dash indicator starts flashing up the 4wd config. Now one would expect it to switch to solid green i.e. locked within a few yards. NOPE you can drive for ages. Slowly, quickly, rock from side to side and at some distant point it will engage (often by this time you have the rear wheels spinning). The only way of getting it engaged is to stop and turn the engine off and on!!!!

According to the Mitsubishi site you can engage 4wd, even Low 4wd at up to 100kph. Now I'm not going to try that!!!
And its the same when disengaging.......

Is this normal or is it another of those appalling designs.

Don't get me started on this truck. It has spent 3 months in the shop for a new prop-shaft. Had to be flown in from Japan!
The alarm has a mind of its own. Locks and goes off when driving, with the doors open - just anytime it thinks it should!!!
I've never stalled a vehicle so many times in my life - even when learning to drive. The engine just has this affinity to die!!! And its a diesel
The list goes on...........

Not sure about the series 5s but on my 56 and 2013 trucks both had Super select 4x4.
You can swap between 2H and 4H on the travel up to 60 MPH, and use it in 4x4 on Tarmac etc.
But not 4L or 4Llc you need to stop for these, and cannot be used on tarmac etc

I thought the sequence was lift throttle, use the selector, wait for solid, and proceed in the H levels?
Given the list of faults, wonder if you've ended up with franken200 where it's the last parts in the bins that have all been dropped etc and found themselves on one vehicle...
@Nick i shudder to think of 4Llc at 60mph, sounds like a good way to split the chassis from the drivetrain.


Anything is possible, all you need is imagination or own a bank!

Just dip the clutch, change from 2H - 4H wait for the 4 lights to go to green then lift the clutch, (Well that's how i did it in mine)
Sure does ouch, 4L or 4Llc shouldn't be done on the travel
