"SRS" stands for: "Supplemental Restraint System". The primary restraint system are the seat belts / shoulder belts. The SRS consists of the air bags that are located in the steering wheel and dashboard that help protect the driver and front passenger(s) in the event of a collision. Additional airbags (often located in the side pillars between front and rear doors) help protect from side impacts may also be present - depending the year and model vehicle you have.

An SRS light that remains on in the instrument cluster indicates that a problem has been detected by the on board computer. It normally should not interfere with the operation of the vehicle, but some or all of the SRS components may not work when needed or may activate unexpectedly - depending the type of problem with the SRS.

Many states that require vehicle safety inspection at regular intervals may fail a vehicle with an SRS issue. Be aware that these systems may be costly to repair. The auto dealer and most modern repair garages have the technology to obtain the SRS problem data that is stored in the on board computer, and should be able to provide you with more information about the nature of the problem and approximate cost of repair.

I hope this helps & good luck!

You generally only get white fuel smoke from a diesel when one or more cylinders aren't firing. If it were injecting more fuel than can be burned into a cylinder that is firing you'd get black smoke. You can get gray smoke from a cylinder that is firing cold or late, but blue obnoxious smoke is more common with late injector pump timing. Dirty/failed injectors also generally make a rude blue smoke.

Run a can of Diesel Kleen through it. If you can't get it where you are call a local truck service and ask what they recommend for cleaning the pump.

Check and keep watch on the oil and coolant- white smoke from a warmed up diesel is usually coolant that is getting into the combustion chamber, typically from a failed head gasket or cracked head/block.

If you see any oil floating on the surface of the coolant, or if the oil starts to look milky, this motor must be serviced and the issue found or it won't last long.

In the body shop that was just about what we would have to do when there are no visible screws and it was the first time removing a panel in a new type of vehicle.

Those panels are usually held in place with some metal clips (sometimes plastic molded into the panel) that snap into slots in the body. You can lightly pull and get a feel for where there is reistance. Slide a thin tool like a paint stick (or something stronger) and use it to pry up in the area of resistance. You may also be able to pry up and look under it to see where the clips are.

  • Hi, I can help.

  • Open the door and look on the inside of the door where the mirror mounts from the outside. Often times Mitsubishi's mirror access panel is behind a corner of the door panel and it is just a little corner piece that pops off.
  • Follow these steps ---
  1. You will either see some screws right away or a little panel that will have a screw to remove (some of then you just gently pry off with a flat tool. If no screws the gently pry off.)
  2. Now you will see a wire harness that is coming down from the mirror. Gently lift it up until the connect is reached.
  3. Remove the connector and don't let it drop down. Anchor with a little duck tape.
  4. Now you will see three nuts that need to be removed ( I think 13mm ).
  5. Make sure you support the mirror as you are removing the last bolt.
  6. Now wiggle and jiggle the mirror out and pay attention so the harness comes out freely with it.
  7. It's a basic reversal to install the new mirror.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here and I will respond to you.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Are you going by the gauge that says fuel economy on the dash, if so try to zero out the gauge or reset it ,this will recalculate the reading.

There should be a manual pull probably inside the trunk at or near the area of the fuel door.
If you have a manual, the location would be shown in it.

Its a good idea to change plugs every 50K miles...so go ahead.
By looking at the plugs you can check engine's health.

With no codes...I'd suspect a fuel leak somewhere...

Hope this helps...
