Is temperature the reason my Mitsubishi won't start?

Answered by CarsGuide 2 Sep 2016

The cold cranking power required to start an engine first thing in the morning when it’s cold is much higher than when it is a little warmer, as it is later in the day. Make sure your battery has sufficient cold cranking power to do the job. If the battery is too small, even if it’s new, it might not have the power needed to crank a V6. If it does have sufficient power then look to the starter. If the starter is not throwing in it could be worn.

Battery maintainer on VL Calais

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Apr 2014

There shouldn't be any issue with leaving the maintenance charger connected to the battery, and other than the inconvenience if having to reset the clocks and radios there shouldn't be any issue caused by disconnecting the battery. After all you have to disconnect the battery when changing to a new one.

Mitsubishi Verada TCL warning light

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Oct 2013

There would seem to be no option other than to replace the faulty solenoid as the dealer suggests. Not replacing it isn't an option, as the traction control will not be working when the light is glowing.

Ask Smithy Xtra Remove immobiliser in Mitsubishi

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Aug 2010

The auto elecs are correct, it is built into the computer and not possible to disconnect. You need to talk to an automotive locksmith who should be able to reset the immobiliser/alarm and that should fix it.

A Question of stability

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Oct 2009

PROBABLY, in some circumstances. In a normal driving situation AWD would get the nod over two-wheel drive because of its better handling and grip. But stability control really comes into play in emergency situations, such as a sudden swerve to miss an object or an animal on the road. It's well documented that stability control reduces single car crashes, and that's likely to apply whether the car is two-wheel drive or AWD.

Verada a big winner

Answered by CarsGuide 7 May 2009

YOU are not alone. Many people say the Magna/Verada was a good car, but they had an image of it being boring. If Mitsubishi had somehow been able to race it against the Falcon or Commodore it might well have been able to change its reputation.

Treading carefully

Answered by CarsGuide 24 May 2007

TYRE makers generally guarantee their tyres for six years against manufacturing faults, which gives you a measure of the life as they see it. There is no sign that will tell you that a tyre is too old to be safely used, apart from cracking in the sidewall. Perhaps you could have a local tyre dealer take a look at them and give you an idea of their condition.

Rundown on verada

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Dec 2006

THE KS Verada is generally a good car and if the one you are considering is in the condition you describe I wouldn't see a problem with it. The engine is smooth with good performance and driveability and the transmission is reliable. But at that mileage you should carefully road test it to make sure there aren't any glitches when it comes to shifting, up or down, at light and heavy throttle, and that the chassis is well balanced.

Puzzle about tyres

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Mar 2006

OUR tyre expert, Russell Stuckey, says the replacement tyres should give the same result, as both the originals and replacements are made here and are identical. With imported cars, where the original tyres are made overseas, the replacements might sometimes be locally made, so perform differently.
