Question about Mitsubishi Mighty Max
Welcome to Fixya
This means the engine management system has detected a fault within the system and stored a code that will help you find the problem that the cars management system has found.
To receive codes you will need a diagnostic testing tool that your local Garage may have, If they do not have the correct tool they can retrieve the codes manually .
Once you have the codes this will help me what has to be tested repaired or replaced.
Thank you for using Fixya!

check engine light comes ON when the cars computer (the ECU) notices any kind
of electrical problem in car. In some cases the check engine light comes on
then turns off. In that case the exact error is not getting confirmed so this happens.
But once the problem gets confirmed the engine light will remain permanently ON
till the problem gets solved. In this case I suggest you to get your car
scanned at autozone service center. It's absolutely free. In case in car scanning, if any error code is retrieved
then you can check which part is faulty as per the error code. If no error code is retrieved, then you will have to get the battery to starter, battery to alternator connections checked.You will have to get the throttle body and IAc valve cleaned.The IAC valve is located on throttle body.Get this cleaned and it should help.But most probably you will receive a error code.Due to which the check engine light is blinking.---------this should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
