1992 4g93t cd5a Mitsubishi Lancer GSR 1.8 Manual Dohc turbo starting/electrical problems

  1. Hello, thank you for your reply, my car is running on a stand alone Microtech LTX-8 Ecu, but also now my 'check engine light/service engine light does not come on at all when ignition key is turned on. I had taken the aftermarket Autometer Tacho & boost gauges out thinking I was going to sell the vehicle but have decided to keep it, I had taped up the loose wires but when going to reinstall them I had forgotten which wire goes where :) I've found the every connection apart from the 12v light switch wire..but i'm stumped on why check light does not come on. Thanking you in advance and appreciate your advice and time.

First you need to check all your fuses with a test light. The 12 volt light switch wire for the ilumimation of your gauges is just a park light feed, the best way to find it is using test light,it can be found in radio plug or park light switch or fuse board.Your check engine light is not so easy ,first I would check the bulb in dash, then you need to make sure of you lose wire tap connections the check engine light needs a feed to it to come on you need to check your aftermarket ecu wiring diagram to see where this is or get hold of a factory one to find it to see if you can manual trip it with test light.

How to test the coil of a honda luxline 1996

this is covered in the FSM. factory service manual.
disconnect coil
there are 2 tests, ohm meter, and hot wiring.
no exact numbers as USA dont have luxlines.... nor that 1.5L , nor your smogless controls. on

D15Z4 engine.

1: check primary, it will be like (taught i school works on all gas cars)
the primary, is near 0.5 ohms. (varies by if IGN is low,med, or HEI energy levels, im clueless to luxlines.)
our 96 civic (USA) is 1/2 ohm primary.
and secondary is 22k to 33,000 ohms....
2: there is a live test. using a 12vdc battery, ill skip that is you will get shocked.. but is covered in school, the trick is to avoid infinite dwell.
if this DIZZY is a stand alone dizzy( how many pins are on the primary wiring connector?)
if stand alone it has what is called a VR pickup and an ignitor inside
you set the VR gap to spec, and the pick up amp, works, and fires
the egnitor, the ignitor is just a large transistor. it turns on, charges
the coil for "dwell spec" and the turns off, this turning off creates.
near 20,000 volts in the coils secondary.

if this is a ECU controlled spark system that is a whole other matter
if engine has a CMP and CKP sensor it is THAT system
and the ECU will tell you when they are bad, (blinking CEL lamp)

Check engine light on but car runs good

The check engine light comes ON when the cars computer (the ECU) notices any kind of electrical problem in car. In this case I suggest you to get your car scanned at autozone service center. It's absolutely free. In scanning the error codes will be retrieved.As per the error code you can check which part is faulty and replace that particular part. This will solve the problem.---------- This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

Just got tune up/major service on the 2001 expedition and was running great 2 days ago. Now it seems to be sputtering and the check engine light came on. It seems like it is having a fuel issue. I just...

5.4L or 4.6L engine?? Check your coils. Go to autozone or advance auto parts and have them scan the ECU for the check engine light!! Its recommended to replace all 8 COPs(ignition coil over plugs) upon replacing the sparkplugs. These typically go out, especially if the coil boots are cracked. Hopefully this helps

1992 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR, 4wd 1.8 dohc turbo, cd5a, 4g93-t engine.

first thing to do is remove spark plugs and if they smell really fuely you will need to change them if that doesnt help you will need to get the microtech tuned for a good coldstart , this depends on if its running stand alone or as a piggy back
please leave feedback.
