Turn off airbag light on Mitsubishi triton 4 cyl 2007 petrol

I have had my local mechanic check with scanning tool. No fault code appearing, light remains on. We believe it may be caused by dirty sensors, if so where are the sensors located ?

Sounds like a steering wheel sensor. Call Mitsubishi back and tell them that, or try a different dealer. Sensor detects the angle of the steering wheel when determining ABS operation parameters (I think)...

SOURCE: 2007 camry check engine light

there is nothing to reset, u need to have the OBD 2 electronic control module (called a PCM) tested for fault/trouble codes, whenever this light is turned on by this module then a fault has occured in the engine, emission or transmission controls, there is seldom if ever a symptom other then the light, Kragen Auto and Autozone will test this for free outside of California, have the system tested for OBD 2 trouble codes.

SOURCE: CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON ALL THE TIME I used scan

This might help you to better understand the EVAP system and help diagnosing the code that was set. Basically there is a leak and you need to find it. Could be very hard to find without a smoke machine. I would take it into a shop to have it tested with a smoke machine and go from there. Some people might say to just replace the gas cap, but if that's not what it is, there is $20-30 wasted, when it could have been put towards an actual diagnoses that will actually help you to fix the problem DTC P0455 System Description
The control module tests the evaporative emission (EVAP) system for a large leak. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor signal to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. When the conditions for running are met, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve OPEN and the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve CLOSED . This allows engine vacuum to enter the EVAP system. At a calibrated time, or vacuum level, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve closed, sealing the system, and monitors the FTP sensor input in order to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. If the system is unable to achieve the calibrated vacuum level, or the vacuum level decreases too rapidly, this DTC sets. Hope i didn't confuse you.

I have a 2003 Toyota Avalon with the check engine light on.


Hi, this will require you to have the engine CPU scanned for trouble code's. This can only be administered with the assistance of a diagnostic computer scan tool. You can purchase this tool, at your local auto parts store, or you can just have the scan ran at your local auto zone parts store, free of charge. Once the diagnostic scan is administered, you will be able to isolate the issues that have caused the check engine light to illuminate.
This scan tool will display a print out code and the location of the issue, on the engine, as well. There are Many issues that will cause the engine light to illuminate, but the most common cause will be a failed monitoring sensor, or sensor harness failure(separated power wire, or ground).

Thank you for posting your questions with us!
There are quite a few reasons that the engine light is on. Lets start with the simple things first.
Check your fuel cap and make sure that it is securely on and tight. If it is then we can move to the next few items.
The next possible cause is a engine fault code caused by a engine sensor. I would suggest that you check the engine oil level, coolant level. These items can also set off a check engine light. Now those were the simple ones. If you don't find any faults in the fluid levels or fuel cap then you will likely need to go to your local Auto parts store and ask if they have a code scanner, or if they can scan your vehicle codes. The code scanner will give a general fault code related to your vehicle like a faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor, or Faulty Throttle position sensor. There are about 12 different sensors that could be causing this fault. Once the code is revealed it is just a matter of replacing the faulty sensor. However if your have more then one fault code I would suggest asking them to rest the codes and drive your vehicle again until the light appears. Then if you have a single code this is your likely problem, but if your still have multiple faults you may need to seek the service of your local mechanic or dealer.
If you have any further questions regarding this issue please feel free to contact me! D.R. Wilkins Fix Ya Expert

Check engine light is on


The check engine light indicates that the power control module, which is the computer that controls your cars engine, has detected some event that it is not supposed to. This could be caused by any number of things from a dirty air filter, bad sensors, or dirty spark plugs. You need a OBDI scan tool to read the codes from the computer to see exactly what event the PCM has detected. Once you know what the code is, you'll have a better idea how to fix it.

Any qualified mechanic will have an OBDI scan tool, and many places such as Auto Zone will read the codes for you for free.
