Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.
You can take it to any parts store and get a free scan.
I am not seeing in the service manual where to jump the connector to get the codes.
I cant, I will opt out and another expert should be able to help.
The check engine light comes on when the on-board computer detects a fault in engine driveability or performance, transmission control system or transmission, or the emissions system, and a fault code is set and stored in the computer. Faults that can set the check engine light can range from a vaccuum leak, engine mis-fire, low engine compression, faulty sensor such as O2 sensor or other engine sensor, hydraulic pressure loss in transmission, transmission shift solenoid, open/short in wiring harness, emission evaporative system leak, or one of over a hundred different reasons.The only way to know what set a fault code and turned the check engine light on is to have a diagnostic scanner hooked up to the on-board computer and read it for stored diagnostic fault codes. Many auto parts stores will do this service for free- (like auto zone)check with you local parts stores. If none in your area do, then you will have to take it to a shop and pay to have the computer read for stored fault codes.
Without knowing the fault codes numbers, it would be irresponsible to guess as to the cause as there are hundreds of possible causes
if you provide me a diagnostic code we can narrow down the cause of failure
as far as im aware a code reader is required...paper clips do not work on obd 2 vehicles
thats a bad catylitic converter..98 percent of the time...have you tried resetting it?
that would work
