If you have the light, you should have a code. Have it read to find out what it points to. Could be that the sensor was installed incorrectly or improperly wired (connector might be loose)….. If the car drives well, there might be no problem at all. Frequently, it takes several restarts to get the light to go off.

Yeah, it takes up to 5 days for the light to reset on its own. If your Mitsubishi service engine light soon does not reset on its own, use an OBD2 scanner to read the codes. If you need help look up "Mitsubishi Service Engine Soon article on Youcanic".
