Attention Any1 with a 1998 to 2003 Mirage/Lancer (Australia)

Postby RELEAST on Tue Feb 12, 2008 7:10 pm

Just a Quick note for anyone on this forum that has a 1998 to 2003 mitsubishi mirage or 2 door lancer with 1.5ltr SOHC motor in it

Dont not use the wiring diagramms in the Gregory's workshop manuals as the diagrams are for the USA versions of this car NOT the Australian spec

ive learnt this the had way and now looking at a bill of close to $700 for repair work done on my car due to this mistake made by this company

so my advice if ya going to put an aftermarket ecu on ya mirage/lancer get a haltech (as they make adaption looms for their computers) or if its of another brand get a proper performance tuner/auto electrican to install it unless u wanna pay out the $185 for the workshop CD from Mitsubishis
how can it be a girls car if it hasnt got a make up mirror in the drivers side sun visor?

ah - wrong version of the book hey!!

I purchased the right version of the book from Repco - they use the japan version of the wiring in mine, I bought it when i was doing the DOHC conversion and everything was correct in it that I used.

yeah but u would think tho gregorys being a AUSTRALIAN company they would put AUSTRAILAN wiring diagrams in it considering the book is made for Australia

and i thought it would have been ok considering on the front cover its got a pic of the 2 cars with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera house in the back ground
