Q: Q: Automatic transmission problems

asked by on

I have a Mitsubishi space wagon GDI 2000 ; pls can the transmission control module be reprogrammed? and how
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. It may be possible that the transmission control module can be reprogrammed, however, only a specialist with the correct equipment and software would be able to do so. If the TCM has failed, it may simply be easier to replace it. If that is not an option, then perhaps it can be repaired and reprogrammed by an automotive computer specialty shop or the dealer.
