Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
When you connected the battery was the negative cable connected last or first?Did you hear or see any spark/pop when the battery was hooked up?
Thanks. Any time that the negative is hooked up while the positive is unhooked you will get a spike when the positive is hooked up... that is sparks/pop you noticed.Go to the under hood fuse panel and inspect all of the fuses and fusible links. Pay particular attention to the large fusible links and to the two fuses in the yellow fuse holder.
Also be aware if the vehicle is in original condition, there is one fusible link outside the fuse box hanging off the battery positive terminal to check out as well.
It will depend on which fuse(s) popped, but yes most likely it will be related. It is unlikely that you had some other failure occur as well.The green light is the immobilizer light, the immobilizer turns off the fuel injectors if there is a problem detected (like the wrong key). As long as you have one or more circuits that are not getting power however, all bets of course would be off as far as electrical malfunctions. Once the fuse(s) that popped are replaced if the condition maintained then we would be a bit concerned, but as for right now it is an expected condition.
I am leaving for the night but will return tomorrow if we need to discuss this further.
