SERVICE PRECAUTIONS DISCHARGE HEADLIGHT

Before checking the discharge headlight related parts, be sure to read the following warnings and precautions carefully, and then perform necessary operations.

DANGER

WARNING Do not illuminate the bare headlight bulb.

(Do not illuminate the headlight using other than the vehicle power supply.) If the headlight bulb illuminates without fitting it in the headlight unit, it may burst due to rise in its internal pressure.

CAUTION When reusing the controller with the discharge headlight damaged, observe the inspection procedures for the related parts of the discharge headlight before determining the reusability of the controller. If you fail to observe "How to check discharge headlight components," the vehicle may be damaged.

1. CHECKING PROCEDURE FOR DISCHARGE HEADLIGHT RELATED PARTS (INSPECTION PROCEDURE WHEN REUSING THE CONTROLLER)

1 − 1 VISUAL CHECK OF CONTROLLER (CASE)

If any of the check items below are found, replace the controller.

Mitsubishi Outlander. Chassis Electrical

1 − 2 CHECK OF WIRING HARNESS BETWEEN CONTROLLER AND BULB

If any of the check items below are found, replace the wiring harness between the controller and the bulb.

DANGER If the wiring harness between the controller and the bulb is damaged, always replace it.

Attempting to repair the wiring harness may cause a melted harness wire, or may result in a burn or death due to an electric shock by high voltage.

Mitsubishi Outlander. Chassis Electrical

1 − 3 CHECK OF CONTROLLER OPERATION

If any of the abnormalities below are found, replace the controller.

NOTE: Ensure that the headlight control system and its circuit (power supply control at engine start and during steady illumination, high-voltage generating circuit, etc.) are working normally. Then, check whether any internal breakage has occurred in the controller. However, some internal breakage may not be found.

2. Troubleshooting procedure for discharge headlight (diagnostic procedure for malfunctions)

1. Check that the connectors are connected securely and the fuse has not been blown.

2. Before troubleshooting, read through the "Symptom chart" to understand what and how you should do. Follow all the procedures carefully.

3. The components should be checked with their connectors disconnected.

SYMPTOM CHART

Mitsubishi Outlander. Chassis Electrical

NOTE:

1. The numbers indicate the sequence in which the component is checked.

2. For the troubleshooting of other than the above, refer to Trouble Symptom Chart.

3. If ETACS-ECU fails, only the low-beam headlights will illuminate as a fail-safe measure.

DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE CHART

CAUTION On troubleshooting, if the ignition switch is turned ON while disconnecting connector(s), diagnostic trouble code(s) associated with other system may be set. On completion, confirm all systems for diagnostic trouble code(s). If diagnostic trouble code(s) are set, erase them all.
