Super Select 4WD (dashboard lights)


Hi I'm new to the forum & seek assistance: I have recently acquired an R reg Shogun GLS 2.8TD (manual).
When I use the transfer shift lever to go from 2H to 4H the only indication lamps that appear green are the 2 front wheels. Should all 4 wheels light up green to confirm 4WD?

I've checked with another Shogun driver and he has driven my vehicle & confirmed that 4WD mode is working.

I'm not sure if the indication lamps are correct or whether some bulbs don't work.

Any help / advice is appreciated. Thanks.

As far as I know, the Shogun is the same as the Pajero and the bottom 2 lights should be on all the time, then all four light up to confirm 4wd. The bulbs do blow, I've just changed mine in my Pajero, but as long as 4wd is working OK, it's nothing to worry about. emoticon

Thanks for the advice Lily. I'm none too mechanically minded - is it easy to get behind the dashboard? I don't fancy doing more harm to the instrument panel / wiring. Are they 12v cap bulbs or LEDs?

The bulbs are 12v 2.5w or the bigger ones are 12v 3w, not LEDs. They're easy to get from main dealers, Halfords or similar.

It's more fiddly than difficult as once you have a look, it's obvious which screws need to come out. But I found the bulbs hard to grip and remove. From memory, unscrew the screw closest to the screen and the 2 by the clocks. Remove the panel (and the screws for the inner panel). You'll find a board inside that, holding the bulbs.

If you unplug any connectors to make access easier, remember which are which.

Re: Super Select 4WD (dashboard lights)


And this from the Aussie pajero club: "You need to remove the shroud where you have your cruise control switch, fog light switch, hazards, from memory there are 4 screws. Once the screws are out you will be able to pull the shroud forward about 10cms (just enough to get you hand in) to unplug the cables for the switches. Once the shroud is out you will have access to the instrument cluster (4 screws, 2 either side). You will have to pull the cluster forward as before with the shroud as there are 4 large rectangular plugs behind at each corner to be unpluged. once the large plugs are undone you will be able to remove the cluster a bit more (there is an earth cable that needs to be unplugged as well.
once all thats done and out you will be able to see lots of black knobs on the reverse side of the instument cluster, these screw out with your fingers and the wedge type globe is sitting in the little black knob holder thing.

I suggest you change all the globes in one sitting as it's not fun pulling it all out again to change antoher that will blow in 2 weeks time".

Also, you sometimes find that the new bulbs glow brighter than the old ones...
