1989 Colt with Check Engine Light on

I have a similar problem and when the car, Mitsubishi Colt 1989, is not used for a while it is rough to start and stalls frequently. Then when the engine finally picks up the 'check engine' light emits. This remains on during the entire trip.
I did find an article regarding the ecu having a problem with certain electronic components. Further details on http://www.90gsx.com/eclipse/cap/caps.htm. I will check this out and keep you informed.

SOURCE: 97 mitsubishi eclipse transmission problems automatic 2.0

I have a 95 Eclipse and I recently had to change out my TCU........ Transmission Control Unit, This should be located directly beneath the center console. First I would have the transmission services if problem persist then proceed to changing out the TCU you can get off of ebay. As far as i know there should be 3 Computers in our cars. 1 the Electronic Control Unit located behind radio 2 Transmission Control Unit located under center console and 3 Airbag Control Unit located under hood, Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1990 Buick Century 3.3L Check Engine Light comes on, stalls.

Need to check for fault codes. Possibly a faulty sensor causing the fuel system to run rich or lean.

It's the gas cap sensor. Or you are getting a vaccuum leak somewhere.

Check engine light on and it uses alot of petrol, mitsubishi colt 1989


Hi there:
If 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.



I suggest visit Autozone or Autoshope with OBD scanner reader tool, sometimes they make this job for free.

This dosen't help but.........
I have a similar problem. Every 4 weeks or so the car refuses to start. Again battery is not a problem but if we use cables to jump start from another car it starts fine.
Mitubishi cannot find the answer, only suggestion was to spend £150 on a new key , however the problem has now occured with both of the keys !

My 2006 mitsubishi colt check engine light comes on and the accelerator pedal is giving no power and the car limps when this happens, then the car goes fine again?


There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Not to mention the big list of trouble codes for the engine light. The engine light code will give you a big clue of what's causing the accelerator pedal problem.


Best way to find out what's going on engine light is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means and the problem. Most auto-part store will do this for free.
