Mitsubishi Has Recalled the 2002 Diamante
- Mitsubishi Has
Recalled the 2002 Diamante because the engine may run erratically
Potential Number of Units Affected: 3885
Manufactured: 08/2001 - 11/2001
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. THE MAIN UNDER HOOD ELECTRICAL
WIRING HARNESS MAY HAVE INSUFFICIENT CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE ENGINE CONTROL
HARNESS AND THE EXHAUST HEAT SHIELD. AS A RESULT, THE HARNESS COULD COME IN
CONTACT WITH THE HEAT SHIELD, WHICH COULD RESULT IN MELTING OF THE HARNESS
THE MELTING OF THE HARNESS INSULATION COULD RESULT IN GROUNDING OF THE CRANK
ANGLE SENSOR WIRING CAUSING THE ENGINE TO RUN ERRATICALLY OR STOP SUDDENLY,
INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE HARNESS FOR DAMAGE AND IF NONE IS EVIDENT, WILL TIE
THE HARNESS BACK TO PREVENT THE HARNESS FROM EVER COMING INTO CONTACT WITH
THE HEAT SHIELD. ANY HARNESS THAT SHOWS EVIDENCE OF DAMAGE WILL BE REPAIRED
AS NECESSARY AND THEN TIED BACK TO PREVENT FUTURE DAMAGE. MITSUBISHI HAS NOT
YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES
TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE
THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT MITSUBISHI AT
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 02V100000.
Regarding Auto Recalls

auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA

If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
