Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. When you try to turn the key, what happens? Have you checked the fuses?
I would try switching the starter relay with another relay exactly like it.
Is there a check engine light on and have you checked for codes? Were you having any previous signs of a problem? When and what were the conditions when this started? Have you tested the ignition control module?
Is there a security or theft-deterrent sign on the dash?
You would have to remove it and test the resistance of the pins. This is as accurate as you can get without have a scantool with function checking capabilities.
Give me a few to pull up the exact location. What is the engine size of your vehicle?
I hate to break the news to you, but your control module is actually the function of the ECM. I can send you instructions on testing the control module, if you'd like, but I believe that you should let a technician take care of it.
Have you tested the connector/pigtail for voltage? That could be the issue.
I'm speaking of the plugs that the pcm/ecm connects to.
I am going to send you information for the pins and testing procedures for the pcm. You would do well to test pins numbered 43, 51, 64, 83, 103, and 104. If the connections to the pcm are not strong, then you will have an issue like the pcm is bad.
Okay, 43 is good. 51 and 64 should both read 12v. 83 is good. 103 has a high circuit and 104 is good. 51, 64, and 103 needs correcting or attention. 51 and 54 are power supplies and 103 is for the crank sensor.
Each circuit has to be traced to it's source, which will lead to the fuse box. They will have to be tested and checked for bad connections, faulty wiring, signs of burns, and repaired and replaced as needed.
Not sure. You will have to trace the wires. I'm assuming to the corresponding fuse. If you do not have a strong electrical background, I advise you to see and electrical technician.
We are speaking of power directly to the ecm. You can have power at the plug but if the ecm is not able to send the signal properly, you get a malfunction.
If you have found this information helpful, a positive rating would be greatly appreciated. Thank you...
Again, I'm not concerned with the ecm anymore. I'm concerned with the connection to the ecm.
