Hi. What it says. I've owned a couple of Mitsubishis before - An L200 and then an 400, both while living in Portugal. Now back in the UK and just bought a 2001 Space Star.
I think I may have had a lapse of judgement as the SRS light is on and doesn't switch off. The dealer, local, tells me it's due to damp from the pre-purchase valeting of the car. I'm not so sure. Any thoughts?
Anyway, nice to be here and apart from that worry it's a nice little car, though a bit short of somewhere to put your left foot next to the clutch...

Try to get the OBD II codes.
Check voltage - SRS relys on healthy charged battery as system is checked before start of engine.
Other than that - airbag not connected properly - not replaced after crash ...

If you do anything checking airbags wires - disconnect battery first for your own safety.
And have the radio codes handy before you start.

I've been told that I'll need to go to Mitsubishi for codes as off the shelf jobbies aren't able to sort Mits. codes. True? I know the thing about batteries....we'll see. I had the same thing with a Honda Civic Aerodeck. The dealer had disconnected the battery and the system needed a kick. This was done (and it worked) with the aid of a bit of wire and a sequence of connect - disconnect - connect. Wouldn't know where that connector is on the Space Star.

I doubt that thing with the codes is true.
OBD II codes and connectors are standard -
I mean how would a highway patrolman make an On Board Diagnostic to
check if your car is O.K. and not polluting the air
if he has to have different scanners for each OEM ?
There are specific codes reserved for each OEM - those might not be
readable with low quality diagnostic tools.
