Today for the first time I learned that if you change the battery on a Magna, the Computer will need resetting as it just won't idle, this NEVER happened to me with any other car, I was charged $155 for the "resetting" of the computer, it was a very very expensive battery. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER MITSUBISHI.

When you changed the battery the computer must re-learn the setting again. If it continues have a OBD II reader plugged in and check for codes.

Mitsubishi montero Sport 2003 ,erased p0136 code and now vehicle stalls when put in gear so what could be the problem


If you disconnected the battery you have lost what we call "learned Idle", read below on problem and solution.

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

The idle is controlled by the engine computer and it is not adjustable. Do the following if you have idle problems.

1999 eclipse manual trans.2.0 engine non-turbo kills when stopping


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

After I changed the battery the engine stalls at


Since all engines are controlled by the computer, you cannot manually reset idle speed. The idle is controlled by an idle sensor.

When you turn a/c on the rpms begin to drop down and go up again and it stalls at intersections, this started as soon as i changed to a new battery


when you disconnect battery your pcm loses it memmory. it has to relearn its program.its going to keep stalling until it relearn to idle .take it to dealer to reset relearn idle on pcm.it would be safer.because stalling car is dangerous in traffic.
