Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,What was the purpose of removing the ecu from the car? Was anything else done at the same time, even seemingly unrelated?
So the part you removed was the engine ecu under the hood, next to the air filter?
Thanks.When you turn the key to On, do you see the Service Engine Soon light perform its bulb test for a few seconds?
Thanks.The immobilizer is really the only thing that comes to mind for me too.... unplugging the ecu wouldn't cause it to suddenly not start when you put it back together though.Are we 100% certain the ecu is full plugged in, the connectors are locked down, and there is nothing else you might have unplugged in the process and over looked (like the MAF connector on the air box nearby, etc)?
Hmm.... and this is a place that only does SRS ecus? I'm almost worried that you might not have gotten the same unit back.Is there any way you can scan the system to see what fault(s) turned the engine light on?
This is definitely outside the normal scope of things we see, and I have a feeling there is going to be some unusual variables in play.If you are comfortable with it, and able to, I would like to regroup after we can check to see what codes are set first, and depending on what we find check for spark, check for fuel pulse, etc.
That shouldn't be necessary.... if it is cranking normally and not starting at all, that is sufficient.
You're welcome, see you then
