Mr. Young was notified by Mitsubishi that the replacement remanufactured PCM that was installed in the customer's vehicle needs to be initialized to the immobilizer ECU. This cannot be accomplished with J2534 pass thru programming for Mitsubishi model years 2007 and older. Therefore, Mitsubishi was granted approval for an alternative solution: short-term rental of their MUT3 scan tool. As a goodwill gesture, Mitsubishi offered to waive the rental fees.
