Try disconnecting you negative battery cable for about 5 minutes.I found that this will reset the light from a temporary fault with an oxygen sensor. If this doesn't work or the light comes back on later I recommend having the dealer check before any engine damage occurs ....Robert

I removed the negative battery cable for about 20 min. Your radio will not work after this. You have to remove the face plate, get all the numbers that are on top of the radio and then I called a number that was in the back of my handbook and a lady from Mitsubishi gave me the code. Jeanie

It's saying that something is wrong with your air bag. The light should come on briefly when you start the engine then go out.

A bad A/T Control Relay switch may be the reason your light is blinking on the N of the shift gear in your Mitsubishi Montero Sport. The part will need to be ordered from the dealership to fix it.

Most adjustment screws are located on the top and side of the light housing in 98 Montero Sport. They should be clearly marked. If you cannot locate the screws, check your owner's manual. It should be noted that some manufacturers have located the adjustment screws in the engine compartment behind the headlight housing

when i pull up to a red light my montero sport jumps alittle, it doesnt do it all the time and i am not leaking trans fluid. What could be the problem?

User Avatar

Many things could cause your service engine soon light to come on. Every time you start the engine, the computer does a self-diagnostic test. If it finds any faults, it will illuminate the light. I would recomend you find an OBD ( On Board Diagnostic) tester and read the code. Autozone will perform this service for free. They will read the code and tell you what is causing your light to come on.

Could be a restricted exhaust such as a damaged catalytic converter. Could also be a problem with fuel delivery. If you have a check engine light illuminated, check for codes.

You can clear a service engine soon light in an Infinite G35 by checking to see if the "check engine" light is flashing. If it is isn't, go ahead and clear the service engine light.

service light and abs light on my clio 172 sport how do i reset thanks

Not sure if this relates to your situation, but my 97 Montero Sport is notorious for activating the check engine light when I have not turned the gas cap until it clicks several times. I was warned about this when I bought it - not sure if it was more sensitive in that year. In fact, sometimes after it comes on I go and re-fuel, re-tighten the cap, and it goes off on its own...

The Montero Sport's tailgate dome light doubles as the switch. The entire clear plastic cover slides left to right and has three positions. ON-DOOR-OFF

The service engine soon is the same as a check engine light. It has nothing to do with an oil change.
