Eclipse gs 2.4 randomly dies while driving was told it was MAPsensor so replaced it now car will start run for a mile then shut off can’t restart it but if I wait 15 minutes it’ll fire right back up and run again for about a mile or so and then shuts off again???? Took it to mieneke after 3 weeks they gave it back no charge??? Please any idea’s?

That indicates a problem with the alternator control circuit. I believe the alternator in these cars has all it's controls contained within the alternator itself. It is a good bet that changing out the alternator would solve the issue. Be sure to disconnect the battery [ground connection first] when doing this repair. Also reset the codes when you are finished. Let us know how this comes out. We all learn for your experience that way. ...J.D.

This brings up a point that might be good to mention to the novice mechanic. If you check the DTC codes and have a number, you can always type the code [in this case P0622] into your search engine on the internet and you get all kinds of information. I did not have my DTC chart in front of me, so that is what I did in this case. Also, the DTC code will not tell you exactly what is wrong, but it indicates where to look. There may be other problems, but it is a place to start. ...J.D.
