Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi I have a question I have a 2001 Mitsubishi eclipse 4 cylinder,I was driving back home when suddenly the engine just stop I pull over and try to restart the car but I can't it cranks but not start I bench test the gas pump but is good,I check for spark and don't get any I check for any codes with a pocket scanner but it say no link I'm afraid that could be the computer
It sound like normal do but don't start of course the more I try the weak it gets for the discharge of the battery
How can I check the output from the crank position sensor and where is located?
Yes I do
I soon I get out from work I would do that and I let you know the result
OK take me a while to check it but I decide to buy a new crankshaft position sensor and I check all the fuses and still nothing
I just checked and I just have 0.13 not even 1 volt and now 0 no I don't have signal that was using the old sensor
Yes I replaced it but to don't take everything apart again I just unplug thenew and put the old one back and is 3 wires black red and blue
The blue/black and blue and red read 0.13 that's all
Yes those are the ones on the plug it connects with the sensor I checked and reads 0
How can I check if is the relay or just have to replace it to make sure
How i can I know if I have power on the relay
Okay so I checked the pins for the MRI relay and it does have power going to it.
The pins on the relay are marked no, coil ,com , coil
Nope still no power
I check the whole wiring harness and I don't see any loose o broken wire
I also checked the camshaft connector and it didn't have power either and do you think it's the ECU? Because I already checked all the fuses and when I plug in the scanner it gives me " No Link" I'm thinking that could be the problem and actually I'm on my way to the junk yard right now
No it looks in good condition I been doing some research and I found something about the immobilizer unit the car I bought it 1 month ago and theguy just gave me a single key looks like a replica I wonder maybe the transponder chip is the problem
No it looks OK
OK everything you told me and I don't see anything wrong I replace all fuses even I try to program a new key with a qualified locksmith he try twice with his special equipment and can't program the keys it say is no link to the computer the same result I have with my scanner so I guess is time to take it to the dealership.
I understand that I hope you understand my frustration on almost throw the towel cuz I don't understand why I don't have link to the computer
Okay so I checked all the wiring harness that was going from where you told me and the wires from the sensor to the fuse box look good no ripped wires but I found some wires that where connected with each other and where just covered with tape. I found 3 black and red wires. One of them goes to the spark plug block and so does another one. The other black and red wire goes tosa sensor that is right on top of the fuel rail. I don't know what sensor is that. I also found another pair of black wires that were also attached to each other. I'mg guessing those are ground wires but I'm not sure. I followed one of them and one goes to a ground bolt on the engine. The other 4 go a different way. What should I do?
I don't get 12 bolts still
Okay so I got 10 bolts instead of 12. I finally got a code with the scanner and it was PO1610
Yes I now have 10 bolts at the red wire
Okay I checked and I DONT get that
The sensor is brand new
