Lancer Cedia cs5w 2001 AT Problem - No Drive any gear.

Hey Guys,

First time poster looking for a little insight before I declare Auto trans dead and swap it. Will try and give as much detail as possible.

Vehicle is a tiptronic automatic, 4G93 motor, 192XXX Km. trans code off the build plate is F1C1A which from googling is a CVT transmission?

No drive in any gear. When in drive or tiptronic flashes neutral light. When bridging pin 1 & 4 of the obd2 diagnosis connector it flashes neutral light code 24 at me. I think this is the code for vehicle speed sensor (VSS) but am unsure as difficult to find information on this JDM import. No check engine light on.

I am thinking the trans is toast, but my questions before I call it and pull it out to replace are:

1 - Could the VSS (if that is what trans code 24 relates to on this lancer) cause complete loss of all drive? My experience with other cars tells me no, but want to make sure as I have no experience with Mitsi electrics.

2 - Is there any other Mitsi specific problem that could be causing this other than the gearbox is toast that I should investigate?

I would get a proper scanner.
Code P0024 is something else

A CVT relies heavily on vehicle speed to choose itīs setting.
Not hard for me to imagine nothing goes.
On the other hand a limp mode would be nice to drive to the garage.
But a CVT is expensive - thatīs why the americans donīt build it and very few europeans.

Thanks for the reply,

I have a proper obd2 scanner, But as it is not a check engine light it does not throw a code related to transmission. Only had a few unrelated codes stored related to idle control valve etc.

When I bridge the connectors and get the flash code of 24, it is from the neutral light. Which I believe is a transmission only code. May try and see if I can track down a scanner for these "transmission codes" this is a real pain problem as I want to be sure it is not a sensor issue causing it.

Be patient but if and when you find a OBD code reader that says both of your vehicle speed sensors failed than I can promise you the steel belt or whatever belt inside your CVT is broken. I had faced the same problem, I can see this is what has happened with your ride most probably. I had the same tranny but not with triptronic and that flashing light is death. Feel free to revert back here if you have any update and I will guide you regarding next steps.
