Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. are you getting rpms while cranking?
what im wondering is if you are getting rpms at the times it doesnt start.
no rpms= crank sensor or wiring to it
The P1610 is indicating a malfunction in the immobilizer which almost always will require a tow.
The code specifically says that there is a communication fault between the engine computer and the immobilizer computer, however it is possible to throw this code if you are using either a regular non-immobilizer key or an immobilizer key that is not programmed or lost programming.
Is there any back story to how this problem came to be? Was a new key made for the car or anything like that?
if there is no rpms during cranking. its almost always a crank sensor issue. in very few cases the cam sensor is the problem, but not in my opinion. the crank sensor reads the reluctor and sends the signal to the pcm to fire the injectors....go ahead and replace it.
hows it going?
