Mitsubishi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello Greg , No I did not installed any alarm system, I do not know if there was any installed when I purcharsed it
I do remember seeing one recently but I removed it , I disconnected the black little box it was where the radio is , Let me provide you with more details of how the problem started , I parked the car and I left it idling while I was speaking to someone and suddenly the car shut down by itself and I did not ever started since then. I thought it was fuel related so I put in some fuel enough to make the car start but I did not ... then I notice that I was not able to hear the fuel pump and then I went ahead to check for any spark from the coil pack (which has recently been changed) , I thought that the relays were bad ( ASD and the fuel relay ) so I jumped and cable on both relays jumping 87 to 30 and I was able to hear the fuel pump and I was able to get 12 v reading on the middle pin that goes to the coil pack, I hope this info helps...
The MFI relay is located where the fuse box is ? Under the drivers side ? Now I see that the image you sent me says turbo ... Mine is a 420a engine does it matter ? And What exactly are we looking for on this specific relay ?
Will do , I will get back to you in a couple of hours since right now I am at work..
Will the MFI relay be the same as the ASD ? Because on the firewall side (battery side) I have got two relays only ... The first one which I believe is the fuel pump relay and the second one is ASD... or would it be located in front of the passenger's side ?
Please answer my previous question so that I can investigate ...
I am working on my car now... But I cannot see the MFI relay under the hood
That's what I followed to test the relays
yes I checked for 12v on the black/red stripes cable on the injectors and it is dead... I got 12v when jumping the relays but the car did not start
Greg I am ready for your instructions...
I do have an scan tool... but no errors... I would even say that it is not connecting to my scanner.... And yes this car has a crank shaft position sensor which has been recently changed... no more than 2 months ago... All fuses are in shape
All right ... so would you assign this problem to someone else ? Or do I have to do it?
I will wait for someone else to take over on this one.
What´s a locked question?
Which pins am I required to test? On those sensors?
All right, be right back
The readings I got were 0.59v on all three sensors..
Hey I need a diagram ... so that I can know which pin is 2 and 22 ... And Did I just paid you ??? We are not done yet...
Hey 2 and 22 are grounds... they do not have any reading ... please refer to this...http://www.justanswer.com/mitsubishi/6nxhw-mitsubishi-eclipse-rs-95-eclipse-rs-when-turn.html
Let me swap my ecu with my brothers... he is got the same eclipse but 96
I have swaped the ecus already and i still got no readings... i am attaching the black one to the negative and the pin from the multimeter to the pins you suggested... and nothing yet not even the coils middle pin is got 12v.. and not even the fuel rail... Am I doing it right ? I mean am I using the multimeter..?.
What could it be related to??? I did test the ASD and the fuel relay... They seem to be working fine ... but I do not feel the click the relays are supposed to make... I did jump both relays from socket 87 to 30... and everything gets energized.. I mean all the sensors do mark some readings on them... For example the coil shows 12v... the fuel one shows 12v as well.. But the car only cranks but does not start
BTW the fuel pump is dead... but when jumping the relays I can hear it work... But still the car does not start..
Could you please indicate which is the name of the relays/Fuses we are looking for... below is an image for your reference
Amedee thanks for assisting me... I was able to verify that fuses.. the ones marked with red are all 12v... and the ones with yellow.. were dead... I was able to see a shortcut on one of the cables .. to be more specific the one that says Tail Lamp ... or the one marked with white ... and some cables were joined together... could this be the cause of my issue... The weird thing was that the car was idling and suddenly it shut off by itsel and never started again..
I will work on the fuse wiring , i will reply as soon as I am done rebulding it
But if i rate the operation you will get paid... but what if the problem is not on the fuse box??? Do I have to pay for a new question?
