Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Doug, When we last spoke, approx february (my computer crapped out, so I have no record of our history) We'd discussed replacing the cam gear sensor, cause it was cracked. You'd said "That sounds like it" but after replacing there was no change. I just now tried testing each of the coils outputs and they work but only if I use the connector, from the wiring harness, that's for the center coil.
I don't have a 4x4x1" box but rather 2, 3 pin connecters, one of which is the (I think you said Crank sensor, which checked out as per your suggested test), the other is for the cam gear sensor that I just replaced, which had a mounting bracket, but the replacement doesn't so it just hangs there.The test you now suggest, sounds like it would take 2 people to perform.
well the 2 things you circled are a 3 pin and a 6 pin connections, the clip that was holding the 3 pin one on had broken off long ago, and now the 6 pin unit has a broken clip as I was pushing hard to get it to click in and it broke. I'll repeat 'This sounds like it takes 2 people to conduct this test
I couldn't reach the battery, and crank the ignition, and see the meter at the same time. So here's what I could do; Without another set of hands/eyes, 1st; I wedged the red cable into the red/pos batt terminal, and using the black lead, each pin registers ?5 or 50? whether the ignition is on or off, on either the male or female ends of the 3 pin unit, and this is with the ignition on or off. @nd I unplugged 6 pin unit and put black wire to negative batt. term.; All but one had the gauge registering, The one that didn't register (ignition on or off is the white wire (the wire 2nd closest to dashboard.
