Mitsubishi Outlander: On-vehicle Service


Required Special Tools:

The relevant wheel, on which the wheel speed sensor is fitted, should be free to run.

1. Remove the wheel speed sensor connector to be checked.

CAUTION For precise measurement, do not connect to the wheel speed sensor-side connector and the wiring harness side connector terminal No.1.

2. Use the special tool test harness (MB991709) to connect a multimeter between the wheel speed sensor-side connector and the wiring harness connector terminal No.2.

3. Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position.

CAUTION Do not rotate the wheel too quickly. Output current changes significantly as the wheel speed detection magnetic encoder comes near or goes away from the wheel speed sensor.

4. Rotate the wheel, on which the wheel speed sensor is fitted, quite slowly to measure the output current with the multimeter.

Standard value: 5.9 to 8.4 mA or 11.8 to 16.8 mA

5. If the measurement is not within the standard value, or the output current does not change in proportion to the wheel rotation, replace the wheel speed sensor.

Mitsubishi Outlander. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)


Required Special Tools:

1. Raise the vehicle using a jack and support the specified points with a rigid rack.

CAUTION Before connecting or disconnecting scan tool, always turn the ignition switch to the LOCK (OFF) position.

2. Before setting scan tool, turn the ignition key to the LOCK (OFF) position.

3. Confirm that the selector lever is in the "N" position, and then start the engine.

4. When carrying out the actuator tests No. 01 to 04, perform the actuator tests using scan tool while depressing the brake pedal. When carrying out the actuator tests, rotate the wheel by hands to confirm that the braking force changes.

5. This is indicated as shown in the above.

6. When any malfunction has been found, take a necessary action according to the "Judgment Table".

7. After the inspection, turn the ignition switch to the LOCK (OFF) position, and then disconnect scan tool.

Hydraulic unit installation adjustment

1. Operate the pre-removal steps for the hydraulic unit.

2. Remove all brake tubes.

3. Remove the protector.

4. Loosen the mounting bolt and nut of the hydraulic unit bracket.

5. Install all brake tubes temporarily.

6. Shake hydraulic unit to all directions with both hands to make the hydraulic unit bracket insulator fit with the unit.

7. Install the hydraulic unit bracket with mounting bolt and nut not to load the brake tube.

8. Install the protector.

9. Install all brake tubes securely.

NOTE: Install the flare nut taking care not to let the brake tube turn together.

10.Operate the post-installation steps of the hydraulic unit.



If the ABS is not operating, the vehicle will be unstable during braking, Do not drive the vehicle with the ABS-ECU connector disconnected or with the ABS not operating.

If the engine is started using a booster cable when the battery is completely flat, and the vehicle is then driven without waiting for the battery to be recharged, the engine may misfire and it may not be possible to drive the vehicle. This is because the ABS consumes a large amount of current when carrying out its initial checks. If this happens, recharge the battery fully.

Hydraulic Unit


NOTE: ABS-ECU is located in the hydraulic unit.

 Diagnostic Function

ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTICS If the ASC-ECU detects any problem in the CAN communication line or the ECUs, which the ASC-ECU is communicating with, it stores a diagnostic trouble code. The DTCs have 73 items.


 Rear Suspension Diagnosis

INTRODUCTION TO REAR SUSPENSION DIAGNOSIS If the rear suspension is faulty, the vehicle will not run straightforward or noise will occur. Incorrect wheel alignment, malfunction of shock absorber, stabilizer bar, coil spring, control arms or worn or out-of-balance will cause these problems. REAR SUSP
