Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a Mitsubishi 2007 Triton Cab/Chassis vehicle,I would like to shut off the engine management light permanently if possible. It comes on at start and stays on some of the time and then at other times it only shows when engine is being started and then goes off and stays off,last week it did not give any problems with staying off for the entire week until the Friday night when it started staying on again permanently after starting the motor. This has been the pattern for a month. I have had service people scan it and when the light is off the scanner shows nno fault is present. When scanned when the light is onit then will show a fault with catalytic converter/oxygen sensor. Twice they have scanned and been able to make the Engine Management light stay off (in one instance for a week) and then the problem started again. As\per your ad I would like to switch the Engine Management Light off permanently without having to go through the process of replacing the O2 sensors and /Catalytic converter as this is expensive,inconvenient and time consuming as well Regards Barry

Hi Barry,
I'm afraid you may have misunderstood my ad. I do not have any "magic fixes" that will get the light to turn off. I only offer help with performing diagnosis and repair to those who would like to save money. Diagnostic time at a shop is expensive, as you probably already know. The way I can help you is to avoid the diagnostic time at the shop and diagnose the problem yourself and perform the repairs necessary to correct the problem with your engine management system without replacing a bunch of UNNECESSARY parts trying to GUESS what the problem is.

Here is the next problem. I need to know which engine your Triton is equipped with and which fault code numbers you are getting. There is no way to look up the correct diagnostic procedure or wiring diagrams or anything else we may need without this information.

Also, Triton is not sold in the USA. The Triton platform is sold in the USA as a Mitzubishi Raider. I have diagnostic and repair information for the Raider, but none for the Triton. They are probably very similar, but I won't know for sure until we get into diagnosing your truck.....wire colors, component locations, etc., may be a lot different.

If you would like to continue and see if we can get your truck fixed, let me know.

What is the problem of my mitsubishi lancer why the "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" still warning on?

Hi there:
When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.

The Four Most Common Check Engine Light Scenarios and What to Do:
* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

An orange warning light shaped like an engine has come on what does it mean

Engine warning light

eng_man_light_72.jpg Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter

Location of the chassis number on a 1989 mitsubishi triton

model not listed in my alldata book ,most models are on the top of the bulkhead under the screen ,but some big 4x4 are showiing at the back over back wheel and to the rear of it on the chassis so no doubt its corroded away ,if it has restamp it before you try importing it or you will need this certificate from dealer plus that paper signed by technical engineer and another from the customs then this and that ,in the end the paperwork costs more than the value of the vehicle ,i know because this is spain ,and of the decline of the forests through paperwork .
