Quick question for anyone here. I have a 2009 1.5L Lancer (CY) from the firm, and recently it has started to give me a warning light on the dashboard while driving (occasionally). The symbol is a red exclamation mark in brackets. When it comes on, there will be a beeping noise, clicking coming from by the glove box, and the radio will turn off. Sometimes the handbrake light will come on as well. There is no specific occurrence for this, it just happens randomly.

Has anybody else experienced this? Diamond Motors in South says they can't pick up on any issue when they check the car.

It resembles the hand brake light, but just in the center of the dash. Sometimes when that light comes on the hand brake light comes on as well. Not all the time. All fluid levels are good, and brakes good as well.

No my lancer doesn't have TPMS. Tyres are new, but it has been happening way before I changed them.

No it's a red exclamation mark in a circle, inside of brackets and CHECK written underneath. I can never get a picture of it as it happens so randomly and last a second.

Have you had any coolant issues or noticed any random increases in temperature on the dash? Monitor it. I think that light would come on for various things but since your problem is intermittent, it'll be hard to pin point until it gets worse.

If you check fluid level and it's good, no leaks, or bad seals. Try shaking sensor and wire to see if light flashes. How many wires run to your level sensor?

For a daily driver the GT is lots of fun. the fortis feel like a sloopy (same suspension as the 1.5 , 1.6) mamoo (detuned 2.0) 1.6. The steering also gives less feedback guess it's because the GT has rigid collars to mate the subframe to the body, the fortis does not.
I have owned the CY2A 1.5 (new), galant fortis (f/used) and now the GT (new)
My advise is if you can't afford the GT new check Carmax for a used one before considering a fortis.
Why not an Evo x ? For me the Evo would be a project car, you don't project your daily driver imho. I currently get with the GT over 500km to a tank which is $140 to fill up.
Why I sold my rrm turbo kit? Reminded myself it's not a project car, I rearly use the highway, don't need it plus a search on the iterwebs will reveal all is not well with the kit, despite rrm claims that customers have over 70000km running daily on their kit.
Intake, exhaust, cams etc and you can easily see 200hp n/a
I know I gave a lot of info here and some are vague ( sorry but some abuse the free info I share) so Que the 25 plus daily PM's.

How much a/c use and heavy foot driving is involved in that 500km?
I get about 400km per tank, but I NEVER drive the car without a/c, and I admit I floor the gas fairly often with my 2.0. (I'm trying to gauge how badly off my fuel consumption is).

Any other 2.0 owners feel free to share your input as well on this...

wow thanks for summing it up. About Carmax vehicles though I saw most of them with badly done body job repairs and their prices are still so high. Oh well ck4 lancer for it.
