I am also a mini pajero owner since nearly two years now. Love it!
However, I've run into some trouble now and I'm really hoping that some of you guys can provide some assistance or the details of a solid, reliable and honest mechanic in lahore to sort out my car troubles.
You see I've only just moved to lahore a couple of months ago and as such am clueless as to mechanics/market etc of lahore. All I know is that Bilalganj is the goto for parts. Aside from that am not familiar with any good mechanic or anything.
The trouble I'm having is as a result of the heavy rains of the past few days. Unfortunately, it seems that my roof is leaky and a fair bit of water made it into the car. Most probably from the roof/windshield edges. However, it was the floor that was most wet. Particularly on the driver's side but also on the passenger side, the floor was soaked.
This is what's happening:
Day-1 following night of heavy rain: inserted the key to start the car. Car started as normal but only stayed on for about 5-10 seconds and then switched off. Tried this many times but always the same result. Tried to start, quickly put in reverse to moves the car from puddle but again switched off.
Day-3 following plenty of rains: car won't start as easily anymore. Needs kicks to gas peddle and then switches on. But same story. Stays on a few seconds, then there is a 'click' sound and again car switches off. Also, the A/T Temp and check engine light comes on.
Now I'm not sure what to do or how to go about this. I cannot drive the car, so cannot take it to a garage. I would like to get a hold of a good mechanic who can bring the scanner/diagnostic tool to my place and confirm where the error is and then rectify that.
Please can anyone suggest a good person who can help me. Or any suggestions regarding what to do.
Am in need of some serious help!!!
