im having that exact same problem.....have you found anything out about it yet.....ive been told to check the transmisson line and also the fuses....

the tranny is junk there is a problem from manufacturing with a wave spring (snap ring) that was not made strong enough ,and when it breaks it gets sucked up into the pump and breaks the pump ,resulting in a complete rebuild with a new version of the wave spring that is stronger. unfortunately the manufacture will not recall or admit any wrong doing. If you google Mitsubishi transmission you will see all the problems
