Hi,
I test drove a 2004 Jimny auto transmission today. I noticed that when the 4WD mode is engaged, the dashboard icon in the dash blinks.

[It's a little green symbol depicting the drive train of the vehicle]

Is this how it supposed to work?:mellow:

I also own a 1986 Samurai... with less technology, it lights up a green 4WD symbol when it is engaged.;)


I'm thinking about purchasing this vehicle for my wife. Any replies would me most welcomed.

Thank you.
Rick

The flashing is a fault indication. Check the pipes around the pump and the hubs for leaks.

Thanx man.


I also researched this information:

The flashing is caused by the 4WD Controller
thinking that the vacuum system has failed. This can
be due to:
(v). Vacuum leaks from the system
(vi). Valve solenoid failure (VSV2)
(vii). Pressure switch failure

I bet this is pretty expensive to repair:(

I may decide against purchasing this vehicle....:mad:

You can swap the vacuum hubs for manual FWH, might be a good bartering point.
