I am new to these forums, from the UK, so I appreciate any help you might be able to offer.
My 2015 Mito 0.9 Twinair (105bhp) will not start.
for about two weeks I kept getting an intermittent Engine management light appear along with "start/stop unavailable".
This would either clear by itself, or I would disconnect the battery for a while and reconnect, which would also clear the fault.
(I always followed the throttle position reset procedure when doing this).
I decided to buy an OBD2 reader - fairly standard ebay model. Works on a family member's Jeep Renegade just fine.
Plugged it into the Mito OBD connector, and set ignition to MAR.
The device did not power-up, and I pretty much got every single feature "unavailable" cycling through on the dash.
Engine still started.
Disconnected the OBD2 reader, no errors or faults (apart from the original stop/start unavailable error), engine starts.
Decided to check fuses to see if OBD port fuse was dead.
Stupidly looked in the engine compartment fuse-box first! Checked a couple of the lower-amp fuses and replaced them (with engine-off and battery neg/ground disconnected).
Reconnected the battery after realizing the fuse is in the cabin (which is intact) - but now I get a "padlock-on-car" icon, followed by every single feature "unavailable" cycling through on the dash.
Cannot start engine.
Disconnected battery for an hour.
Tried again, same as above.
I am now leaving it disconnected over-night, hopefully it will be ok.
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of problem? Or does anyone know what's causing this?
Is the sequence of faults on the dash when connecting OBD2 reader, and then after reconnecting battery purely co-incidental??
(as the car was ok between removing the reader and disconnecting battery).
Anyway - here is a link to a video I recorded, showing the issue, so you can see for yourself.
Appreciate any help coming my way!
