Long story short, I Purchased My wrecked 2010 Evolution Gsr about a month Ago. it was Hit in the front. only driver knee and steering bag deployed. i fixed the car about a week ago. i just got around to putting all new airbags, seatbelts and a new module in, including (2) new front sensors. i then reconnected my battery, and started it for the first time, to find out my airbag service light is on. everything works on my steering wheel besides my horn, so don't think it would be a clockspring issue. ANY HELP Or Advice would be very appreciated.

I am not sure what to do at this point? Heres a little background first, My wife was driving the car making a left and a lady ran a stop sign. My wife was going about 10-15mph and the other lady couldn't have been going any faster. It did about $6500 in damage to our car. We are in a fairly small town in Florida, Gainesville.

So, this is my problem, The body shop did a good job of repairing the body damage but the alignment/left front tire wear has been never ending. It has been back to the shop 3 times and 2 different alignment shops and still has the same problem. When making a left turn, only left, you can hear the left tire scrubbing. This is mainly on wider left hand turns, like from a 4 lane road to another 4 lane road. I am thinking it could be a bent ball joint shaft, bent control arm, bent steering arm, or i am starting to think it might be a problem with the front differential? I am starting to think this because the tire screeches the loudest when it is in a gear and you let off the gas, almost like the diff is locking? At this point i don't trust that anyone in this town can diagnose the issue i am having. This has been going on for around 6 months now and i am ready to take it to Jax, Orlando, or Tampa if there is someone that is good and worth the drive. Does anyone know of any good shops?

I'm still dealing with this. Does anyone have any experience with this problem on an X? I'd just trade it in but I don't want to do that to someone else and I can't really afford it right now.

Any update on this? My car is at the body shop for similar damage but on the right side, don't know what to expect, worried about alignment problems too.

I missed this sticky when I had my accident. Below is a link to my original thread about it (with pics). Long story short, car has right-side damage to back quarter panel, back door, and trunk. Right now repairs have reached a little over $16,000. The body shop has had my car for over a month, and two weeks past their original estimate. They had to replace AYC hydraulic unit in the rear, which apparently took awhile to get.

I really miss my car. I went to look at it Monday, and all the body work was done. The interior was gutted and they are waiting on my right seat to be reupholstered with leather, since my leather was dealer installed.

So, I just had $27,500 of damage repaired on my '14 GSR. It was hit primarily from the back, so the ACD/AYC pump got absolutely destroyed. (The girl was doing about 45MPH when she hit me) The front got beat up pretty bad too because I got pushed into the car in front of me. They replaced the intercooler and crash bar on the front.
Basically all the panels around the car were replaced, except for the doors.
ANYWAY, after sitting in the collision shop for 13 and a half weeks I got it back.
I plugged in my Cobb AP when I got home and read the trouble codes. (I know I should have done this before I even left)
I'm getting:
ACD:
C1612
C161B
C161A
AIRBAG:
U0171
U0170
B1B22

I looked these up and the ACD issues are with voltage/pressure and the Airbag ones are front sensors and one of the side curtains. I get no dash lights though...

What should I do? Can I bring this to Mitsu to diagnose so I can make another claim to my insurance and have them fix it? Unfortunately the closest Mitsu dealer is over 2.5 hours away.
I really don't know what to do.
On Monday I'll have to call my insurance agent and see what he says too.

I just wanted to get some opinions from what you guys would do. I guess the shop couldn't read the codes or whatever. I'm not even sure how they properly installed the damn ACD/AYC pump without the MUTIII.

I would do exactly what you said. Call the insurance, but typically you can send supplemental bills against an existing claim (don't need to make a new claim, they keep them open for a long time). Just have Mitsu write it up that it was due to accident and subsequent incorrect install.

The moment I got my car back from the body shop (not nearly as bad a damage as yours), I took it to Mitsu and had them check that everything was done right. But it's easy for me to say because my dealership is only 15 min away.....

Wow, they had your car for awhile, you would think after all that time that they would have fixed it correctly. It's coming up on two months for me, and I thought that was long. I'm really hoping my car get's done right. I hate waiting this long because I don't know or trust anyone with my car.

I wish I had took some pictures when I looked at my car, just to get some opinions. I looked at it Aug 31, and it looked like it was very near completion. The body work was done, but the interior needed to be put back together, and on the exterior, the rear wing and right side skirt were off. My right back tire was missing also and the spare donut was in it's place.

I can join this club!

Little bit of backstory, I was stopped waiting for a light. The car behind me got hit by the car behind them, which launched their car into my rear and then my car into the car in front of me. I'd guess at 30-35mph. Seat broke backwards, front and back are junked.



They're currently talking about totaling it, the damage is at like 51% of the value of the car, the shop it's at is saying they will most likely find enough damage to total it when they start pulling panels off. They're willing to, the insurance company just needs to give the go-ahead. Hoping they'll do so soon so I can figure out if it's totaled or not :(

As I’m sure many of you guys know, Ken (aka kge0003) has a lot of useful knowledge about automobile accident damage & claims. Well, he approached me wanting to help those on here involved in collisions even more so. After some discussion with the other staff & Ken, we have decided that he deserves his own stickied thread where those needing such help can obtain information.

So, for those unfortunately involved in an accident or situation in which their Evo X has been damaged, Ken & this thread are here to help you. Basically, you guys can either post your story/question in this thread or link to your pre-existing thread. Ken will then try & help you guys out. Others should of course feel free to post responses as you would in a “normal” thread about someone’s accident.

Thank you very much Ken for helping out on here! It is much appreciated.
Hi guys Iam driving a 2015 Evo X sst with 12000km on the clock. The car was in a accident, after fixing it does not want to crank. The scan tool just give me fault codes like U0001 , B1731. Pls if you guys can help me.

Sadly, I can add my name to this list. :(

Last week while on the way to work on the freeway I was rear-ended. Traffic was slowing due to typical jams during that time. The driver behind me apparently wasn't paying attention. They tried to avoid me by swerving quickly to the right, but they did not make it. This is why the damage is on the rear and quarter panel areas on the right. I estimate they hit me at probably 20-25mph but it's really hard to say. They did end up probably 150 ft. in front of me if that tells you anything.

Initial estimate from the body shop was ~$5800. Current estimate is up to $11,800. Currently at the body shop being worked on. I knew it was going to be way higher when I saw the broken suspension bits under the car.

My only concern so far is that they are only replacing the one tire that was damaged, and they only specified a 2 wheel alignment. I though we had to replace all tires when something like this happens? Or at least in pairs. I mentioned this when I first dropped off the car but will ask them about it again tomorrow.

OK, guess I can't post photos/links until I have a postcount...strange, I guess this is my first post.

Thanks.

Don't know what happened but it appears that my AWD failed (faulty pump) through a sharp curve and my tires all started spinning and i spun. Regained traction right when i was facing a barrier and went into it full bore. Air bag deployed.
Should I try to fix it? How much do you think this will cost to fix? Still waiting to find out if it will be written off.
