Customer Question
Engine light keeps coming...

Engine light keeps coming on. Car is driving fine though

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

Been to Mitsubishi twice. They must have just taken the code off but then it comes back again

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mitsubishi?

2008, 25th Anniversary

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Haven't tried it myself Pearl. Irritating having the light on though....

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thank you.
