Local help needed with MUT Reader

I hope thereís someone out there who can help.

My evo x has thrown up warning lights.

ABS, ASC and sayc.

From what I have read itís potentially the speed sensors or yaw sensor........ really hoping itís not the pump.

All 3 are coming on immediately after start up.

Iím hoping someone is able to diagnose what the issue is who is local to me. I am located in lancing West Sussex.

Will pay for the person for fuel and time taken.

I hope there is some owners in the south willing to help.

TIA.

Ryan

Doesn't sound like the pump, the car waits a while to see if the fluid gets up to pressure before throwing a warning light.

Thanks.

Iím sure this is a shell sensor.

Abs came on when I drive it round the block , sat in limp
Most for 5-10 secs and went back to normal driving.

Is there a difference in sensors? Or are they all the same?

You need to get the fault codes read.

I've had wheel speed sensors fail on a X and the symptoms weren't the same as you seem to be describing.

Thanks for replies

Would like to drive to Rich. Donít want to risk that far to be honest.

Brighton Mitsubishi is an option but would mean booking it in and I spend a lot of time working away.

Would appreciate it if anyone close who has mut to read for us.

Phil.

Ok. Thatís interesting. I have read on the American forum that info. Canít say it is. It sort of fitted as many years ago I had an x5 which had exactly the same symptoms which turned out to be a speed sensor.

There are a few other options.

Potentially battery? Maybe a yaw sensor too.

I will head over to Mitsubishi Brighton on Monday morning to see if they could squeeze me in late afternoon. But I head back up north again Tuesday untill the weekend......

Ideally someone local to plug in to eliminate/diagnose fault.

I do have evoscan. Havenít used it for 7+ years... totally canít remember how to used along with loosing plug.

Thanks for the input.

Do you have a Tactrix 2.0? Just plug in to your OBD port and hook up to your laptop.

As it happens I currently have both rear wheel speed sensors disconnected on my X so if I get the chance tomorrow I'll hook up my Tactrix and see what it tells me.

Hi Mate

I'm near burgess hill area and have the kit to read my evos 6&8 never used it on a 10

If the cable connector is the same we can give it a go

Fyi if it's a wheel speed sensor the car will throw abs and ayc lights when you start moving iirc over 4mph or something like that

That's what happened on both of my evos when a reluctor ring fails
It's used to measure wheel speed and sits on the end of each drive shaft

On a X it doesn't have the conventional reluctor ring arrangement, and I'm pretty sure the sensor type is different insofar as a wheel speed sensor failure will show up at standstill.

To be honest I had a lead, not sure if it was 2.0....... I used it for my 7 Rs I had. Like I said it was 7+ years ago. But have now moved and no longer can find it. I did throw a lot of stuff away from my garage which I thought was junk..



Few pics. With the warnings on. Comes up immediately. Then when started.

It's a long-ass way, maybe there is someone closer but don't fret about going to RG, they're good. The problem with Mitsi is that they don't want to repair anything, just replace. They won't even look at your car, they'll just say you need new this and new that.

Forgive me, maybe got our wires crossed. Not fretting at all.

I will be defo going to rich when this issue is sorted but wouldnít feel comfortable driving the car all the way to Kent with the way it drove the other day.

Abs grinding kicked in when I was braking from 15mph. Then limp mode. The. Went back to normal. But with all the lights still on.

Iím hoping itís a sensor of sorts. Although Iím not a mechanic I can and have worked on all my cars so diagnosis is the first thing then fix.

RG will be booked shortly.

Does the car drive ok now, just showing the abs sayc and asc lights?

If so, it does sound like a wheel speed sensor. Mine went a while ago, and started just throwing an ABS light for a while, then after a few days the AYC and ASC lights came on.

I used the car for a month or 2 till I got chance to get a diagnosis of which sensor it was, was done by CPP, then I got a copy part off ebay, far cheaper than :misti: If you search past posts on here which I have replied to, there are part numbers listed for oe to cross reference, and other members that have used the cheaper ebay options. I fitted it myself, its not technically difficult, but expect the old sensor to not remove easily, I had to break mine, drill it out, then knock out the remains
