Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Looking underneath the car at the AC compressor you will see two connectors that are single wire connectors... one goes to the AC compressor and one disappears under the intake.
Does the one with the green wire disappear under the intake (correct) or is it connected to the AC compressor (incorrect)?
Yeah, those are backward then my friend.... they are interchangeable, one goes to the starter one to the compressor.
Swap them around and let me know what you see... I would bet you will be OK then, and the noise you were hearing was the compressor clutch engaging when the start signal went down the wrong wire.
If you need further help just let me know.
All resolved I take it?
