The engine control unit (ECU) in your Mitsubishi model is a powerful computer that keeps track of various inputs sent by different sensors and makes adjustments as necessary. This helps the engine function at its peak. If a sensor sends a signal that is outside the norm, the ECU will attempt to correct it on its own. If this fails, the ECU will store a code pointing the offending sensor; it will also turn on the Check Engine Light so you know that something needs your attention.
The Check Engine Light can have so many meanings, so it's best to get it checked out as soon as possible. Our technicians will connect a code reader to your Mitsubishi and investigate the problem that the ECU points to. Since we are an authorized Mitsubishi service center, we have everything necessary to correct the problem after advising you about how best to deal with it.
