Mitsubishi Colt engine light problem

Asked by Andrew Nicholson

My 2007 Mitsubishi Colt auto I bought secondhand three-and-a-half years ago has got a problem with the engine light coming on and causing the car to go into 'safe' mode and will only drive in a low gear. It has been with my mechanic for over a week. The diagnosis is coming up with a speed problem message and he has replaced the transmission sensors, but to no avail. He's now getting an auto electrician in and if he can find nothing then it is down to the central computer or the transmission itself. Obviously I'm not happy. Do you think I have any recourse with the dealer or Mitsubishi, as this should not be happening and may cost a lot of money to fix, if it is fixable.

You've got no recourse to the dealer or to Mitsubishi, the car is seven years old, and the problem you've got is fixable and shouldn't be expensive. The most likely cause is a failed sensor or a wiring issue, it is most unlikely an issue with the transmission of the main ECU.
