Mitsubishi Outlander: General Information

By using the cruise control system, the driver can drive at preferred speeds in a range of approximately 40 to 160 km/h (25 to 100 mph) without depressing the accelerator pedal.

For this cruise control system, in conjunction with the electronic throttle valve control system, the engine control module (ECM) electronically controls the throttle valve.

CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM DIAGNOSIS

INTRODUCTION TO CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM DIAGNOSIS

The cruise control system allows driving without stepping on the accelerator pedal by setting a random speed between 40 km/h (25 mph) and 160 km/h (100 mph). Malfunctions in this system can be investigated by the following methods.

Cruise control system diagnostic trouble codes

The cruise control system consists of the engine control module (ECM), control switches and sensors.

The switches and sensors monitor the state of the vehicle. The ECM controls the throttle valve opening angle in the throttle body in accordance with the input signals from the switches and sensors. If the ECM detects a malfunction on any of those components, the ECM estimates where the problem may be occurring, and will set a diagnostic trouble code.

Diagnostic trouble codes cover the cruise control switch, stoplight switch and ECM.

DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLESHOOTING STRATEGY

Use these steps to plan your diagnostic strategy. If you follow them carefully, you will check most of the possible causes of an cruise control system malfunction.

1. Gather information from the customer.

2. Verify that the condition described by the customer exists.

3. Check the vehicle for any cruise control system DTC. 4. If you can verify the condition but no cruise control system DTCs are set, the malfunction may be intermittent.

5. If you can verify the condition but there are no cruise control system DTCs, find the fault.

6. If there is an cruise control system DTC, record the number of the code, then erase the code.

7. Re-create the cruise control system DTC set conditions to see if the same cruise control system DTC will set again.

DIAGNOSTIC FUNCTION

HOW TO READ DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES

1. Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position while press the "COAST/SET" switch. Then, within one second, release the "COAST/SET" switch and press the "ACC/RES" switch.
