    Default happened again!

    while driving home ,1/2 way through a 300k trip ,the car lost power and showed the TCL and engine lights!
    limped to the next town some 10k away,
    had a break, decided to try sport shift,
    started car TCL light went out !
    drove home with no issues ,with the sport shift, engine light remains on ???
    is the battery stuffed ? or do I have other issues ?

    Yep, sounds like battery to me.
    The 380 is very sensitive to battery condition and will throw a hissy fit if the battery is a bit dodgy.
    Rule of thumb is to replace the battery with a new one every four years, and yours could be well over four years old by now.
    Now Mitsu-less for the first time in 29 years!

    I can only share my TW experiences but I've had check engine and TCL errors can't remember if ABS was on and maladjusted TPS for the check engine, APS replaced for the TCL which is just starting to be very intermittently fault again on the TW. For them to fault find my car when in wty I had to get the TCL to fault and then take it down as it quite often reset and cleared when i turned the car off.

    380 is different mate. It's all done by wheel sensor pulse count.

    I clean mine out every year, they seem to attract metal filings from road debris and or disc wear material and it seems to clog up the air gap between the sensor and teeth.

    blow compressed air on and see what happens?

    engine light went out on its own accord today ???
    so all back to normal,
    would the tcl light trip the engine light?
    or would they be separate issues

    yep check engine light would be reported.

    the codes will be logged next time you read them.
    the code will tell you exactly which bit is/was broken/intermittent.

    next service at the dealer ask them.

    I should add that if you disconnect the battery between now and the next service the fault codes will be lost.
