I just had one of my switches replaced 3 weeks ago and it's doing it again too! I used the service manual to find out where the wire leads to on the transfer ECU connector and discovered there was +12v coming FROM the switch even when it's disconnected! I'm not 100% sure, but since the switch only has 1 wire coming from it and doesn't intersect with another wire, how else would 12V be on the wire unless there's a short?
I've gotta take it back to the dealer. It'll cost me, but I just don't have the time for that. I HATE electrical problems.

your wire harness that go into the transmission needs to be cleaned, the contacts may be dirty, they need to be cleaned and resealed with the electrial grease that should solve your problem with the yellow light info from former mit mac

I am experiencing the same problem, I've taken my montero to the dealer and they said it was stuck in 4 wheel drive, so they free it up and re-greesed the parts.
I took it for a drive, swithing couple of times from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive to see if everything was working properly and after 32 km the light started flashing yellow again. I took it back and the tech discovered it was stuck in 4 wheel drive again and i wasn't shifting properly.
He free it up and he took me for a drive to show me how to switch form 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. We drove for 27 km and the light started to flash again.( I guess he also didn't know to swith it properly), so back to the garage she went.

One local dealer quoted me $29 for the replacement switch....but upwards of $200 for the job.....the other dealer suggested the fluid be changed prior to going to that option.....I chose to change the fluid and filter....$169....and light flashing within 30 miles once back on highway....mine NEVER comes on driving in city...only after 30 miles or so on highway.....will now purchase the switch...part# MR953767 and take it back to service provider (not Mitsubishi dealer) who did fluid change.....I've driven lots of miles as traveling sales rep.....and there is an additonal warning light on dash for A/T Trans which never comes on.....so, hoping this switch hang up is more of an inconvenience and irritant than anything else.......will update once the switch has been replaced here on the forum.....good luck to all!!

Default Flashing yellow light

My montero is finally fixed. I had my transfer case re-timed, fluid replaced, mechanical parts re-greased and.......NOTHING...... the yellow light was still coming back. Finally the dealer listened to me and replaced free wheel sensor and the flashing light is gone for good. I spent lots of money on this problem so I suggest you folks listen to the good people
on this or other forums before you rush to your dealership and give your hard earned money away to them.
