I know my Pajero is a later model but I have to take my foot off the accelerator to a few seconds and the lights go solid.. It's probably to take the pressure off the gears. Hope this helps.

Same here, you have to unload the front diff gears.
Same applies when disengaging.

Hiya

This has happened to us in the past with our 2001 SWB. After much frustration we found it to be the front solenoid which just needed a clean, some working and re-lubrication.

We almost stripped everything else down thinking that the front solenoid actually looked fine.

Do you mean the 2 solenoids, or the actuator that sits at the front differential?
As far as I know, the solenoids have nothing that needs to be lubricated.
