Hello Tarochan,

The first place to start is to retrieve any fault codes the on-board computer may have registered.

The flashing lamp you are seeing is alerting you to a possible problem with the braking system or a possible fault is occurring withing the IPS (Instrument Panel Cluster) itself.

So..the best advise I can give you is to have a mechanic do a scan check for fault codes. This may provide some idea as where to start looking for possible problems.

If it is leaking coolant out of the weep hole it is bad, if the bearings are noisy it is bad, if the shaft and pulley wobble it is bad.

There isn't a reset for this. It shut down because it got too hot. Serious damage can happen from over heating. Like a seized crankshaft. I would check to see if it can be turned by hand first. If you can't turn it, it is dead.

Did you install the belt with the number one piston on the compression stroke and have the distributor pointed at the number 1 plug connector wire. If so, you must of missed the belt placement by one tooth. If everything was correct like you mentioned it should of started. So, you made a small mistake that you will have to check again where, Im sorry :.(

Number 1 piston on the TDC of it's compression stroke, distributor pointed at the number 1 plug wire.
When on the compression stroke, the valve rockers on that piston will be relaxed (sealed) and the rockers will have play in them at that setting. Both rockers, intake and exhaust on number 1 will be loose when on the compression stroke of that piston.

Be sure you did blow a head gasket!!. Check for antifreeze loss, or white milky stuff in the oil. Look under the oil fill cap and radiator cap for white greyish goo. That will be a blown gasket from over heating.

To reset the engine light, there should be a toggle switch located somewhere under the dash, just switch it to the other side and your done. it is a very tiny switch, so you may need to look pretty hard for it.

Might try resetting the system by disconnecting the battery lead for a few minutes. The system may be confused with the disconnection and new install, so removing power may reset it. Also, there is a engine light reset switch under the dash. Not exactly sure right where it is, but it is just a simple switch that can be moved from one side to the other. Like a toggle switch, but smaller. This resets the engine light headache and starts a new counter for the next time it lights up for something. Mitsubishi placed these switches on all there vehicles. My 86 truck has it right behind the speedometer under the dash. I use to have to switch it every 50K miles because it was programmed to turn on in that time range. I finally got tired of it and removed the bulb from the engine light warning thing. I don't suggest you remove the bulb,, but I do suggest you look under the dash for that reset switch and flick it to the other side for normal reset procedure.

You will have to get under the vehicle and find the oil pan directly under the engine. On the oil pan you will locate the bolt to drain the oil pan. They usually are at the lowest point on the oil pan so that all the oil is drained from the pan when removed.
