Guys,

Isn’t there an inertial switch within the battery pack, that disables the high voltage circuit in case of an accident? I don’t know if it resets automatically...

Mit engineers mention it during the Euro Encap crashtest video (Youtube).

yes that's the shift position switches (sensors). Maybe disconnect and re-insert the connectors

Does the dash show which gear you have selected? Can you turn the key and cycle thru the gears and see the correct gear on the dash?

Maybe during crash impact something got tweaked-- the sensors, cable and control links, parking lever inside gearbox, etc.

No the gear indicator isn't showing on the dash at all. We will try and play around with the wiring and connections on the weekend.

Well I removed the shift position switch, and it appears to be pretty damaged. See below pics before and after dismantling. I assume this part will be either expensive or impossible to replace without ordering from Japan, so I might just start stripping the car without knowing if the motor etc will run.

i've had to replace one on a suzuki and found it low cost on ebay. It is also known as a neutral safety switch.


Item 23048 shows up as P/N 8604A029 on the fiche, but i couldn't find a price.

And the same sensor may be used on other Mitsubishi models. Here is close example with metal case instead of plastic.

Thanks for that Kiev, I will look into those links and think about whether it is worthwhile pursuing.

We repaired the sensor switch, and now it's back on and the correct gear is shown on the dash when moving through the gears. Unfortunately I still can't get it to run as some other error is preventing operation. There is a constant alert sound that starts a little while after turning the ignition and doesn't stop until turning off. By the way the back wheel is still off and the car is on stands at the back.

Repaired switch:

Dash errors now, the EPS and airbag lights go out after a while:

The picture shows that the car is in R, Reverse. It will not start and go to READY unless in Park, or Neutral.
