Mitsubishi Outlander: SRS Air Bag Diagnosis

INTRODUCTION TO DIAGNOSIS

The SRS system is controlled by the SRS-ECU. The SRS-ECU judges how severe a collision is by detecting signals from the left and right front impact sensors and side impact sensors, front air bag analog G-sensor and front air bag safing G-sensor and side-airbag safing G-sensor. If the impact is over a predetermined level, the SRS-ECU sends an ignition signal. At this time, if the safing G-sensor is on, the SRS air bag will inflate. (The passenger's air bag may not inflate according to the occupant detection data from the occupant classification-ECU.) The SRS warning light in the combination meter alerts a malfunction of the SRS system. If the following symptoms occur even when the vehicle has not been in a collision, there may be a malfunction in the SRS system.

Refer to Post-collision Diagnosis when inspecting and servicing a vehicle that has been in a collision.

TROUBLESHOOTING STRATEGY

Use these steps to plan your diagnostic strategy. If you follow them carefully, you will be sure that you have exhausted all of the possible ways to find a SRS fault.

1. Gather information about the problem from the customer.

2. Verify that the condition described by the customer exists.

3. Check the vehicle for any SRS diagnostic trouble codes (SRS DTC).

4. If you cannot verify the condition but there are no SRS DTCs, the malfunction is intermittent. Refer to GROUP 00, How to Use Troubleshooting − Inspection Service Points − How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunctions.

5. If there is a SRS DTC, record the code number, then erase the code from vehicle memory using scan tool (M.U.T.-III Sub Assembly) MB991958.

6. Recreate the SRS DTC set conditions to see if the same SRS DTC will be set again.

DIAGNOSTIC FUNCTION

HOW TO CONNECT THE SCAN TOOL (M.U.T.-III)

Required Special Tools:

CAUTION To prevent damage to scan tool MB991958, always turn the ignition switch to the "LOCK" (OFF) position before connecting or disconnecting scan tool MB991958.

1. Ensure that the ignition switch is at the "LOCK" (OFF) position.

2. Start up the personal computer.

3. Connect special tool MB991827 to special tool MB991824 and the personal computer.

4. Connect special tool MB991910 to special tool MB991824.

5. Connect special tool MB991910 to the data link connector.

6. Turn the power switch of special tool MB991824 to the "ON" position.

NOTE: When special tool MB991824 is energized, special tool MB991824 indicator light will be illuminated in a green color.

7. Start the M.U.T.-III system on the personal computer.

NOTE: Disconnecting scan tool MB991958 is the reverse of the connecting sequence, making sure that the ignition switch is at the "LOCK" (OFF) position.

HOW TO READ AND ERASE DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES

Required Special Tools:

CAUTION To prevent damage to scan tool MB991958, always turn the ignition switch to the "LOCK" (OFF) position before connecting or disconnecting scan tool MB991958.

NOTE: If the battery voltage is low, diagnostic trouble codes will not be set. Check the battery if scan tool MB991958 does not display.

Mitsubishi Outlander. Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)

1. Connect scan tool MB991958 to the data link connector.

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

3. Select "System select" from the start-up screen.

4. Select "From 2006 MY" of "Model Year". When the "Vehicle Information" is displayed, check the contents.

5. Select "SRS-AIR BAG" from "System List", and press the "OK" button.

NOTE: When the "Loading Option Setup" list is displayed, check the applicable item.

6. Select "Diagnostic Trouble Code" to read the DTC.

7. If a DTC is set, it is shown.

8. Choose "Erase DTCs" to erase the DTC.

SRS WARNING LIGHT CHECK

Mitsubishi Outlander. Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)

1. Check that the SRS warning light illuminates when the ignition switch is in the "ON" position.

2. Check that it illuminates for approximately seven seconds and then goes out.

3. If not, check for DTC.

PASSENGER'S SEAT BELT WARNING LIGHT CHECK

Mitsubishi Outlander. Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)

When an adult on the front passenger's seat wears the seat belt with the ignition switch "ON", confirm that the passenger's seat belt warning light goes out.

The light comes on when a person sits on the front passenger seat but does not fasten the seat belt.

PASSENGER'S AIR BAG OFF INDICATOR LIGHT CHECK

SYSTEM CHECK

Mitsubishi Outlander. Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)

Check that the passenger's air bag OFF indicator light illuminates when the ignition switch is in the "ON" position.

Check that it illuminates for approximately seven seconds and then goes out.

In the following situations, the indicator will stay on to show that the passenger's (front) air bag is not operational.

ILLUMINATION CHECK

Mitsubishi Outlander. Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)

1. Remove the center panel assembly.

2. Connect the positive battery terminal with the center panel assembly connector terminal No. 8. Then, check if the passenger's air bag OFF indicator light is illuminated when the negative battery terminal and the center panel assembly connector terminal No. 11 are connected.

3. If the passenger's air bag OFF indicator light is illuminated, it is judged good.

CHECK CHART FOR DIAGNOSIS CODES

CAUTION During diagnosis, a DTC code associated with another system may be set when the ignition switch is turned on with connector(s) disconnected. After completing the repair, confirm all systems for DTC code(s). If DTC code(s) are set, erase them all.

Inspect according to the inspection chart that is appropriate for the DTC.
