    I have no idea! I will dig out a cable and download evoscan again at some point but I can't promise how soon.

    I don't remember anyone doing that. Most common is just to swap the 6A13TT in instead.

    On the AYC switch change, this was at the 2nd facelift. May 2000 build date. Can't help on the rest!

    It's a 2.0l V6 Mivec in a FWD Galant. Only seen one in the UK.

    i believe the cable you have is open port 2.0 not open port 1.3 openport 2.0 has the pin connected. have you tryied to use the data logging side of evoscan rather than the actuators side of evoscan. next time adam is round at mine i will plug my evoscan setup plugged into adams car. to see what happens. it would be really odd if the actuators only worked with PFL cars. i have a reflashable engine ecu in my car, it is a MH7202F / H8539F. the facelift ECU is MH7203FA / H8539FA not sure...

    it is a good thing you are learning mechanic skills, you will need them to keep a VR4 on the road with out crippling you bank account. they have a high maintenance cost and it is only going to get high as more and more parts are stopped being produced by mitsubishi.

    i took the car out for drive yesterday and the central locking now works perfectly. i did not remove battery connection, maybe it just needed a little time to sync with the ETCS system or whatever that cream coloured box is down by your right foot in the drivers footwell. in my case it was the failing actuator in the driver door lock. so it need replacing. it now has a really strong lock unlock motion, one might say it is a tad violent now. but that is because i had every door card off...

    i think the after market intercoolers most people fit are 600mm x 300mmx 76mm this is the core size the end tanks make it about 760mm total width i think it is the height that is the most difficult dimension to accommodate 300mm so it might be tight and hang down a bit lower than normal plus there is always the issue of fitting it behind the front crash bar you have to do some modifying of the the vertical bonnet latch mounting point. but you can get all this install info from the other...

    It looks like you have not set up evoscan correctly and installed the correct FTDI drivers. you should be able to click the start data logging button and the the event log: box saying link established goes green. if you can't do that than you have not setup evoscan correctly. did you install the FTDI divers after evoscan was installed. evoscan comes with some crap old drivers that don't work any more. you have to install the new drivers after evoscan is installed. i am using windows...

    ah i see in your picture the clip is orange and you push the clip away from the open part of the clip by rotating it clockwise and it will pop off the rod and the rod will pull out forwards.

    Could it be current sensing on the solenoid circuit? If the solenoid won't move then the mechanism is not in the right place, which will lead to a higher current through the coil. Maybe the replacement coil has a lower resistance?

    i had the same issue today, with te door locks. i oiled all slide mechs up and moved everything manually but this did not help. i think the solenoid making the lock release leaver move is very weak. i had a spare solenoid/lock mechanism so i swapped it out. i will have a go at fixing the failed one when i get a chance but not yet. the remote solenoid and lock are part of a single unit. to replace the unit you have to remove door card. remove the plastic vapour sheet

    Good to know - I am making a list of things I need to sort on my car and will update if I solve it. Just had a quick look and the part number for the door switch is MB698713. Google brings up several results but I didn't get any further. From memory the door switches to ground and just tightening the retaining screw can make a difference, but don't quote me on that, I may be remembering a different car!

    Yes, very common. I think the rack end ball joint wear allows the wheels to toe out at speed. When you raise the car to check the wear moves out of contact and the joint feels good. In my experience hard cornering causes outside shoulders to wear, not inside. £20 for a rack end (aka track rod/tie rod) and another £20 for a boot and a track rod end. At £40 a side plus tracking it's a good place to start.

    My drivers door is doing this occasionally but I haven't yet investigated. I suspect it is a bit of gunk somewhere preventing smooth operation so the solenoid doesn't quite have enough force to operate the mechanism. It could well be a dodgy solenoid though. If I get to it in the next few weeks I'll let you know what I find. If the door opening doesn't activate your alarm and it should, I'd see if it is operating your interior light. It could be that the door switch needs a clean.

    once you have loaded evoscan you can plug the cable into you laptop and you should get a message saying there is a more up to date driver available to be installed. install it and that is all you should need to do. you don't need to load anything from the disks. don't click on anything other than the following to bleed the ayc lines. plug cable to laptop plug cable to car. use the same setting you have for connection (open port 2.0 and Mitsubishi MUTIII) select AYC ecu as you have...

    Hi Adam do you have one or two sets for me. If you are going to pop round to pick up the engine crane, you drop them off and I will pay you then. Two birds one stone. You can have a look at the other projects I have on the go.
