    Well.....I finally got around to popping the back seat and checking out the connections around the fuel pump. Pulled the connectors, sprayed with contact cleaner, made sure they were tightly seated, did a wire wiggle test, yada, yada. Still has a check engine light.
    I decided to slide by the local Mitsu dealer and talk to the parts guy. He said nobody has ever requested a fuel temp sensor AND, it's a part of the fuel pump assembly. Yes folks, $800 plus American for the whole assembly. His suggestion was try a pump from Pic A Part and see if it cures it. Might just try that, since it's an easy swap. If/when I do, I'll let everyone know how it turned out.

    Bummer the wire fiddling didn't fix it. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    If you did fix the problem, the CEL probably wouldn't immediately go off by itself. (maybe after some number of restart cycles with the fault corrected, it might) You'd need to reset the code. Then see if it returns.

    Maybe that's what you did? But, it wasn't clear.

    Most CEL codes don't immediately reset on their own.
    Simplify and add lightness.

    Still have the check engine light. Same code. I checked the connectors in the driver's side kick panel. No corrosion noted. Wiggled connections, sprayed with contact cleaner, applied dielectric grease, no change. Three different fuel pumps installed. Come to the conclusion it ain't that. Guess I just run it like it is, till it dies.

    Have you consulted Part 13A-205 thru 208 of the FSM? It suggests backprobing.
