I know what you mean.
I love this car, but it's frightened me a bit, with this fault coming on and being stranded and immobilized on a charge point.
It's the first fault in the six months I've owned it.
It gets three strikes then is gone.lol

Well in 5 years this has been the most expensive car I've evet owned to keep it up to scratch. Probably spent £10k on it but not a single error code, mechanical glitch etc. in sight. I keep driving into things :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Spending too much time looking at the MMCS, not the road. :twisted:

maybe your car is magnetic greendwarf, due to the amount of current from battery, increased induction. acting as a big electro magnet. lol

i'm pretty sure that when that fault came up after the fast charge, all that you had to do was disconnect the aux battery for 10 minutes and you'd be good to go again. of course the manual doesn't tell you that.

I did try disconnecting the battery is for various times, as suggested on various websites, to no avail. I spent hours trying all kinds.
It seemed to need the intervention of the agents Mitsubishi computer program to remove the fault.
I wish I could buy a scanner or something which I could have on standby, should it happen again

Without there being a fault on the car I can’t see it being the fault of the rapid charger (I’m assuming a DC rapid?). I’ve had a similar issue and it turned out to be a 12v battery which didn’t hold charge (well not much).
As you now know how they fixed it I’d buy a lion jumpstart battery (cheap as chips and small) so if it happens again you can just plug it in under the bonnet and restart the car.

Do you think the lion jumpstart would work without the fault code being removed first?
