Mitsubishi Outlander: Manual A/C Diagnosis

INTRODUCTION TO HEATER, AIR CONDITIONING AND VENTILATION DIAGNOSIS

Air is drawn into the heater assembly from either the outside, or from the inside of the passenger cabin if DEFROST, maximum cooling or RECIRCULATION are selected. The air is then forced through the evaporator where heat is removed, cooling and de-humidifying the air. Depending on the temperature selected, a portion of this air is then forced through the heater core to achieve the selected discharge temperature.

If the system does not cool properly, look for a problem with the refrigerant, blower or air distribution systems.

If the system does not heat properly, look for a problem with the coolant, blower or air distribution systems. In either case all system fuses, circuit breaker and relays should be checked.

6. When the vehicle information is displayed, confirm again that it matches the vehicle which is being diagnosed.

7. Press the "OK" button.

8. When the options are displayed, choose the options (mark the check) and then select "OK".

CHECK OF FREEZE FRAME DATA

The freeze frame data can be checked by using the scan tool.

When detecting fault and storing the DTC, the ECU connected to CAN bus line obtains the data before the determination of the DTC and the data when the DTC is determined, and then stores the ECU status of that time. By analyzing the data from scan tool, the troubleshooting can be performed more efficiently.

The displayed items are as shown in the table below.

DISPLAY ITEM LIST

NOTE: *: If a failure occurs to both the ABS-ECU and ETACS-ECU, 0000 mile or FFFF km is displayed to the scan tool MB991958.

DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE CHART

CAUTION During diagnosis, a DTC code associated with other system may be set when the ignition switch is turned on with connector(s) disconnected. On completion of repairs, check all systems for DTC code(s). If DTC code(s) are set, erase them all.
