Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you have a bus communication issue it's going to take some in depth electrical testing. If you're unable to do the work yourself then it would be best to have the vehicle towed to a Mitsubishi dealer as they will have all the necessary service information, training and would be the most experienced in the system. The modules all communicate over a wired bus network. If the network shorts to power or ground or is corrupted by electrical noise then communication will be prevented. The problem could be an internal failure in a module or a short to power or ground in the wiring.
