2001 Mitsubishi Mirage Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
A no start condition may be a result of an internal distributor fault. Our technicians tell us the replacement of the distributor may be necessary to correct this condition.
The key may become stuck in the ignition as a result of a failed ignition lock cylinder. Replacement of the lock cylinder should correct this condition.
There have been reports of airbags not deploying in the event of a frontal impact. Some claim that a shorted airbag wire harness can cause this to occur. Unfortunately there is no diagnoses that will isolate this problem other than fault codes stored in the airbag control module. Our technicians recommend to have any airbag light issues diagnosed and repaired in order to help ensure the airbags will deploy when needed.
The plastic button on the seat belt buckle may crack and brake apart causing the seat belt to not release and/or buckle properly. If this occurs the affected buckle assembly will require replacement.
