Mitsubishi Outlander: On-vehicle Service

HEADLIGHT AIMING

PRE-AIMING INSTRUCTIONS (LOW-BEAM)

1. Inspect for rusted or faulty headlight assemblies.

2. These conditions must be corrected before a satisfactory adjustment can be made.

3. Inspect tire inflation, and adjust if necessary.

4. If the fuel tank is not full, place a weight in the trunk of the vehicle to simulate weight of a full tank [3 kg (6.6 pounds) per gallon].

5. There should be no other load in the vehicle other than driver or substituted weight of approximately 68 kg (150 pounds) placed in driver's position.

6. Turn the headlight leveling switch to the switch position "0".

<Vehicles with headlight manual leveling system>

7. Thoroughly clean headlight lenses.

8. Place the vehicle on a level floor, perpendicular to a flat screen 7.62 m (25.0 ft) away from the bulb center-marks on the headlight lens.

9. Rock vehicle sideways to allow vehicle to assume its normal position.

10.Bounce the front suspension through three (3) oscillations by applying the body weight to hood or bumper.

11.Set the distance between the screen and the bulb center marks of the headlight as shown in the illustration.

12.Four lines of adhesive tape (or equivalent markings) are required on screen or wall:

  1. Position a vertical tape or mark so that it is aligned with the vehicle center line.
  2. Measure the distance from the center-marks on the headlight lens to the floor. Transfer the measurement to the screen. Horizontal tape or mark on the screen is for reference of vertical adjustment.
  3. Measure the distance from the center line of the vehicle to the center of each headlight. Transfer the measurement to the screen. Vertical tape or mark on the screen with reference to the center line of each headlight bulb.

HEADLIGHT ADJUSTMENT (LOW-BEAM)

CAUTION

1. The low-beam headlight will project on the screen upper edge of the beam (cut-off).

Mitsubishi Outlander. Chassis Electrical

2. Turn the adjusting screw to achieve the specified low-beam cut-off location on the aiming screen.

Standard value <Vehicles without discharge headlight>:

(Vertical direction) Horizontal line (H) +- 50.5 mm (+- 2.0 inches) (+- 0.38 degrees angle)

(Horizontal direction): +- 126.4 mm (+- 5.0 inches) (+- 0.95 degrees angle) from the axis, which is 266.1 mm (10.5 inches) (2 degrees angle) rightward from the vertical line (V)

Mitsubishi Outlander. Chassis Electrical

Standard value <Vehicles with discharge headlight>:

(Vertical direction) 53.2 mm (2.1 inches) (0.4 degrees) below horizontal line (H). +- 50.5 mm (+- 2.0 inches) (+- 0.38 degrees angle)

(Horizontal direction): Elbow point intersects the vertical line (V). +- 126.4 mm (+- 5.0 inches) (+- 0.95 degrees angle)

NOTE: High-beam pattern should be correct when the low-beams are adjusted properly.

LUMINOUS INTENSITY MEASUREMENT

1. Set the headlights to high-beam.

2. Using a photometer, and following its manufacturer's instruction manual, measure the headlight center intensity and check to be sure that the limit value is satisfied.

Limit: 40,000 cd or more {When a screen is set 18.3m (60 feet) ahead of the vehicle}

NOTE: When measuring the intensity, maintain an engine speed of 2,000 r/min, with the battery fully charged.

There may be special local regulations pertaining to headlight intensity. Be sure to make any adjustments necessary to satisfy such regulations.

If an illuminometer is used to make the measurements, convert its values to photometer values by using the following formula.

I =E × r2:

HEADLIGHT AUTOMATIC-SHUTDOWN FUNCTION CHECK

Confirm that the headlights turn OFF in one second if the ignition key is pulled out and the driver's door is opened when the ignition switch is ON and the lighting switch is ON (HEAD position).

If there is a malfunction, perform the troubleshooting.

HEADLIGHT AUTO LIGHT FUNCTION CHECK

Under the direct sunlight with the ignition switch ON and the lighting switch in the AUTO position, check that the headlight automatically illuminates when the lighting control sensor receiver is covered by hand. If there is any trouble, carry out the troubleshooting.

NOTE: When covering the lighting control sensor receiver, be careful not to touch the windshield surface (where the lighting control sensor receiver is mounted). (The lighting control sensor receiver has limited resistance to oil.)

CUSTOMIZATION FUNCTION

With the scan tool MB991958 operation, the following functions can be programmed. The programmed information is held even when the battery is disconnected.
