CAUTIONS FOR WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT

WARNING

Just after the ignition switch is turned to "LOCK" (OFF) position, the adjustments must always be made with the cooling fan stopped. After the ignition switch is turned to "LOCK" (OFF) position, the cooling fun might be driven for a few minutes by the after run fan control. If the adjustments are made with the cooling fun driven, injury or damage may occur.

SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS)

1. Items to review when servicing SRS:

  1. Be sure to read GROUP 52B, Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). For safe operation, please follow the directions and heed all warnings.
  2. Wait at least 60 seconds after disconnecting the battery cable before doing any further work. The SRS system is designed to retain enough voltage to deploy the air bag even after the battery has been disconnected. Serious injury may result from unintended air bag deployment if work is done on the SRS system immediately after the battery cable is disconnected.
  3. Warning labels must be heeded when servicing or handling SRS components. Warning labels can be found in the following locations (Refer to GROUP 52B, Warning/Caution Labels).
  4. Always use the designated special tools and test equipment.
  5. Store components removed from the SRS in a clean and dry place. The air bag module should be stored on a flat surface and placed so that the pad surface is facing upward.
  6. Never attempt to disassemble or repair the SRS components (SRS-ECU, air bag module and clock spring). If there is a defect, replace the defective part.
  7. Whenever you finish servicing the SRS, check the SRS warning light operation to make sure that the system functions properly.
  8. Be sure to deploy the air bag before disposing of the air bag module or disposing of a vehicle equipped with an air bag.

2. Observe the following when carrying out operations on places where SRS components are installed, including operations not directly related to the SRS air bag.

  1. When removing or installing parts, do not allow any impact or shock to occur to the SRS components.
  2. If heat damage may occur during paint work, remove the SRS-ECU, the air bag module, clock spring, the front impact sensor, the side impact sensor, and the seat belt pre-tensioner.

SCAN TOOL (MULTI USE TESTER { M.U.T.-III } SUB ASSEMBLY)

HOW TO PERFORM VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (VIN) WRITING

CAUTION

The F.A.S.T-Key (Free-hand Advanced Security Transmitter) is described as the Keyless Operation System (KOS) in this manual. (KOS is indicated as F.A.S.T. in the scan tool display.)

Follow the procedure below to register the VIN of the Wireless Control Module (WCM) and the Keyless Operation System (KOS).

The VIN is stored in the engine control module (ECM), WCM, and the KOS-ECU. If the VIN is improperly erased, the engine warning light or the keyless operation system warning indicator illuminate, and the diagnostic trouble code is displayed.

When the ECM, WCM, and the KOS-ECU are replaced, follow the procedure below to write the VIN.

3. After 10 seconds or more, start the engine again.

4. For 10 minutes, carry out the idling under the condition shown below and then confirm the engine has the normal idling.

NOTE: If the engine stalls while idling, check for a dirty (on the throttle valve) of the throttle body and clean if needed.

Then perform the service from Procedure 1 again.

INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE FOR THROTTLE ACTUATOR CONTROL MOTOR

When the battery cable is disconnected and reconnected, throttle actuator control motor valve (Fully closed position) is eliminated, so that the throttle valve opening angle control would not be performed correctly. When the battery cable is disconnected and reconnected, initialize the throttle actuator control motor using the following procedure.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position and then, place the ignition switch in "LOCK" (OFF) position.

SERVICING ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

WARNING

Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. WASH HANDS AFTER HANDLING.

1. Note the following before proceeding with working on the electrical system.

Never perform unauthorized modifications to any electrical device or wiring. Such modifications might lead to a vehicle malfunction, over-capacity or short-circuit that could result in a fire in the vehicle.

Mitsubishi Outlander. Precautions Before Service

CAUTION

2. When servicing the electrical system, disconnect the negative cable terminal from the battery.

HOW TO SHIFT LOCK FORCED RELEASE

If the shift lever cannot be moved from the P position due to discharged battery or similar reasons, release the shift lock by observing the procedure below.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the position other than the LOCK (OFF) position.

2. Remove the shift lock forced release switch cover shown in the figure. While pressing the shift lock forced release switch with a screwdriver or a similar tool, move the selector lever.

Mitsubishi Outlander. Precautions Before Service

VEHICLE WASHING

Mitsubishi Outlander. Precautions Before Service

1. If high-pressure car-washing equipment or steam car-washing equipment is used to wash the vehicle, be sure to maintain the spray nozzle at a distance of at least approximately 40cm (16 in.) from any plastic parts and all opening parts (doors, luggage compartment, etc.).

2. If high-pressure car-washing equipment or steam car-washing equipment is used to wash the vehicle, be sure to observe the following instructions to prevent damages to the plastic parts.

APPLICATION OF ANTI-CORROSION AGENTS AND UNDERCOATS

Be careful not to apply oil or grease to the heated oxygen sensor.

If applied, the sensor may malfunction. Protect the heated oxygen sensor with a cover before applying anti-corrosion agent, etc.

FORM−IN−PLACE GASKET (FIPG)

The engine has several parts to which the form-in-place gasket (FIPG) is used. To sufficiently achieve the aims of this gasket, it is necessary to pay attention to the application amount, procedure, and surface status.

If the application amount is too small, a leakage will occur. If the application amount is excessive, the FIPG will overflow and cause a clogging or narrowing of water and oil paths. Therefore, to eliminate the leak from the joint, it is indispensable that the FIPG be applied with a correct amount and without any gap.

Because the FIPG used for the engine parts becomes hardened by the reaction with the atmospheric moisture, it is normally used for the metal flange section.

CAUTION

Reapply the FIPG with care to the followings.

1. Completely remove the old FIPG including the residue in gaps of parts.

2. Using Mitsubishi genuine parts cleaner (MZ100387) or equivalent, degrease the FIPG application surface carefully.

3. According to the FIPG application procedures, apply it accurately.

DISASSEMBLY

The parts installed with the FIPG can be disassembled easily without using any special method. However, in some cases, it is necessary to tear the sealant in between the mating surfaces by tapping the parts with a wooden hammer or similar tools. It is acceptable to lightly hit in a smooth, thin gasket scraper into the mating surface, but, in this case, a sufficient caution is required not to damage the mating surface. The oil pan FIPG cutter (Special tool: MD998727) is provided. Thus, use this special tool.

GASKET SURFACE CLEANING

Use a gasket scraper or wire brush to completely remove all the foreign materials adhering to the gasket surface. Check that the FIPG application surface is smooth. There must be no grease or foreign material adhesion to the gasket surface. Do not forget to remove the old FIPG remaining in the mounting hole and tapped hole.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

Apply the FIPG with a specified diameter and without any gap.

Completely enclose around the mounting hole. When the FIPG is not hardened, it can be wiped off. Install the parts immediately after applying the FIPG. At the time of installation, prevent the FIPG from adhering to locations other than it is necessary.

After the installation, until a sufficient period of time (one hour or more) elapses, do not contact the oil or water to the application area. Also, do not start the engine. Because the FIPG application procedure may differ depending on the application area, apply the FIPG according to the procedure described in the text.
