Mitsubishi Outlander: General Information

WINDSHIELD WIPER AND WASHER OPERATION

Intermittent control (Vehicle speed-dependent variable type) <Initial condition: with function>

Mitsubishi Outlander. Exterior

1. ETACS calculates the windshield intermittent wiper interval T1 from the position of the windshield intermittent wiper switch on the column switch and the vehicle speed signal (sent from the combination meter to ETACS via CAN communication).

NOTE: Using the customization function, the vehicle speed-dependent intermittent function can be invalidated.

2. When ETACS receives the ON signal of the windshield intermittent wiper switch, it turns the windshield wiper relay ON. When the wiper reaches the stop position, the windshield wiper auto-stop signal turns OFF, and the windshield wiper relay turns OFF.

When the intermittent time T1 calculated by step 1 has elapsed after the windshield wiper relay ON, the windshield wiper relay turns ON again, and the above-mentioned operation is repeated.

Mist wiper control

Mitsubishi Outlander. Exterior

When the windshield wiper mist switch on the column switch is turned ON while the ignition switch is in ACC or ON position, the column switch turns the windshield wiper relay ON. At the same time, the wiper speed switching relay turns ON (HI).

When the windshield mist wiper switch is ON, the windshield wiper operates at high speed.

Low speed wiper and high speed wiper control

Mitsubishi Outlander. Exterior

When the windshield low speed wiper switch on the column switch is turned ON while the ignition switch is in ACC or ON position, the column switch turns the windshield wiper relay ON. Also, the wiper speed switching relay turns OFF (LO), and the windshield wiper operates at low speed.

When the windshield high speed wiper switch is turned ON, the windshield wiper relay turns ON.

Also, the wiper speed switching relay turns ON (HI), and the windshield wiper operates at high speed.

Windshield wiper linked with washer function <Initial condition: with function>

Mitsubishi Outlander. Exterior

Mitsubishi Outlander. Exterior

When the windshield washer switch on the column switch is turned ON while the ignition switch is in ACC or ON position, ETACS turns the windshield washer relay ON.

When the windshield washer switch is kept ON for 0.35 second or longer, the windshield wiper relay (the wiper relay output time varies depending on the conditions. For details, see the table.) is turned ON, and the windshield wiper operates at high speed.

The windshield wiper is turned OFF with 3 seconds delay after the windshield washer switch is turned OFF.

Even when the windshield washer switch is turned ON while the windshield wiper is operating intermittently, the intermittent action starts again after the linked operation is finished.

If the ignition switch is turned to ACC position while the windshield washer switch is ON, the windshield washer relay turns ON, but the windshield wiper does not perform the linked operation. When the windshield washer switch is turned OFF and then ON, the windshield wiper starts the linked operation.

Delayed finishing wipe function <Initial condition: without function>

With the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position, when the washer lever of the column switch is operated for 0.5 second or more, or the comfort washer function is enabled, the washer fluid is injected and the wiper operates. The wiper operates once again for 6 seconds after the wiper operation is stopped to prevent the washer fluid from running down.

NOTE: Using the customization function, the delayed finishing wipe function can be invalidated.
