Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage
By memory I think in 2000 models MMC has changed the engine from E-W direction. Concerning your reverse gear can you tell whenit stopped working? Is it only the lever that is not going to the far right. Is 5th gear getting in easily? How is the trvel of the gear lever in the neutral channel?

I own the exact same model of car and most of the time when that light comes on, it is usually due to some type of scheduled maintenance I forgot.
Most commonly it is fouled spark plugs or dirty injectors. I change the plugs and wires every 25000 miles or so, and run a couple shots of fuel sytem/injector treatment through before I take it to a shop. Clears it up almost every time.
Also, you can go to Jiffy Lube or Advance Auto parts and they will do a code read on your vehicle for free so you don't have to pay the dealership $100 just to tell you why it is giving you a check engine light. Don't let them clear the code though unless you are absolutely sure that the problem is fixed or will not reoccur.
If it is something serious, the shop will need the trouble code information to diagnose and repair the vehicle. The mirage is pretty durable so as long as your vehicle is still running smoothly (barring normal wear and tear) the chances of it being something major are slim.
Another way to clear the code that I would NOT recommend is:
1) Disconnect the battery terminals from the battery and touch them together.
2) Leave them that way for about 20 minutes to drain the residual charge out of the on board diagnostic system.
This resets the code light, but it also resets all of the automatic calibration the computer does. You will find that your car will run poorly and die every time you come to a stop until the computer can readjust your idle and fuel/air mixture.

EL codigo SRS se refiere al sistema de seguridad del vehiculo (Air Bag System), y aparece cuando se presenta algun codigo de falla en el mismo.
La presencia de un codigo de este tipo no sera eliminada con solo desconectar la bateria durante algunos minutos; necesariamente tendra que llevar el vehiculo a su representante o algun taller que cuente con lector de codigos (scanner) para determinar exactamente que codigo de falla se ha presentado, Solamente con este codigo podriamos ofrecerle mayores detalles.
