    did you happen to see the open/ torn vacuum line right behind the distributor directly under the carb.

    I have the starquest girdle pan coming from OemMitsubishiParts - it is actually still available from Mitsubishi for 60 plus shipping - I will have them tomorrow... it is also a Pajero km132 transmission pan.

    What would cause the required maintenance light to come on?

    These things are pretty simple, alternator is charging, coolant's there and in an acceptable temp range, oil is there and pressure I presume to be acceptable because I don't see an idiot light for oil pressure. Beyond that other than lights.... who cares? What could trip the light?

    I don't recall what that went to off the top of my head, but it wasn't connected to the intake manifold and the distributor on the engine is the wrong one, doesn't have the vac advance.

    Mileage trips the maintenance light - there is a switch under the speedo you access through a little access panel - remove it and flip the switch.

    Never did find it.. but small update, got the electric fan to work. The thermo switch setup was garbage, I rigged it for now, just straight wired to the battery though a connect routed into the cab, ground to battery ground and positive in the cab to a male spade connector, to a female to the battery's positive.. so If I know I'm going to be sitting in traffic for a long time or a drive through I no longer have to worry about over heating I just connect them and wala fan... (it is fused with a 15amp inline fuse btw). Then once on the move again just disconnect. Yeah it's ghetto, but, it works for now. Eventually i'll setup a toggle switch on the dash or a proper themo switch setup. Learned a little more about the distributor setup, going to test the one I got soon and if it works then I just have to figure out how to connect the trigger wire to the coil in the truck and swap them out, connect a vac line and then i'll have ignition advance again which will probably help it out a ton!

    Still been getting 20mpg so, not complaining really. Due to having to make a panic stop not long ago though one of the front brake lines has collapsed internally or something as only one caliper up front is working (passenger side) so that's, not awesome... Got I have gotten really good at rev matching the down shifts and slowing early, hardly ever have to use the brakes now LOL.

    Is there a fuse on the blinker circuit? I hit a dead rotten tree that had fallen in the road at 4am. Couldn't find any damage to the truck but the blinkers stopped working. None of them work, replaced the flasher, nope that wasn't it but now it is supposedly compatible with LED lights...yay


    ideas?

    I would look at the blinker switch plug or something along that line. But if you have all LED lights there are many flashers that say they work with LEDs but I have found they don't The only one I have found that works is made by Peterson. I'm using the 500 series. But you can try the small one with the wire you ground, but I have not had any luck with it.

    I do not have LED lights.

    I guess i'll be getting a test light and multi-meter out today and try to chase down the problem. Tired of putting miles on the Talon just driving back and forth to work.

    So if #7 (TURN) is the turn signal fuse in the dash... Fuse is good, but has no power. Does anyone know the color code for the wires that would feed the circuit? And where it draws power from?

    Dirty fuse terminals. They never pop so they get crusty from eating dirt for decades.
