I recently changed the battery in my car, and now my radio display indicates "CODE" or "OFF" and the radio is not working. What do I need to do?
As part of the radio's anti-theft system on some older model year vehicles (2002 and older), the radio resets itself whenever it loses power from the vehicle's battery. Radio security codes are associated with each individual radio unit rather than the vehicle identification number (VIN). The radio security code must be entered in order for the radio to work.
When you purchased your vehicle, you should have received a card that lists the four-digit security code for the radio (sometimes owners find it inserted in the Owner's Manual or glove box). A sample card is shown below.
Once you locate the radio code, please click here for instructions to input the radio code and deactivate the anti-theft system.
If you are unable to locate your radio security code card, please click here to visit the Radio Code Retrieval website for instructions on obtaining your radio security code. You may also contact your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer for assistance.

Call 1-855-236-9236 when you get your new Mitsubishi so SiriusXM can add it to your account. SiriusXM will also take care of cancelling the service on your old vehicle (if you no longer have it) and can move any unused service credits to your new one.
Be sure to have your new Radio ID or VIN available when you call.
When I play a DVD in my rear entertainment system, why can't I hear the sound through the vehicle speakers?
The Rear Entertainment System plays sound through infrared wireless headphones included with the system for privacy and will support multiple headphones. On special factory-installed systems (2007 model year Outlander) the sound can be played through the vehicle's speakers when the radio is switched to the AUX mode, but the vehicle is not wired to allow this function on the accessory versions.

Where can I purchase Navigation updates for my Navigation System? How much do the updates cost?
For 2013 and older model year vehicles, updated maps are available for purchase at http://Hereshop.navigation.com/Mitsubishi-motors. You may also purchase the updated DVD/CD from your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer.
If you own a 2014 or subsequent model year with Mitsubishi Multi-Communication System navigation*, CLICK HERE TO REGISTER ONLINE FOR YOUR TWO annual, fresh maps at no additional charge: http://Hereshop.navigation.com/Mitsubishi-motors or call (866) 347-9666 or visit your Mitsubishi dealership for assistance.
*SOME EXCLUSIONS MAY APPLY.
How recent are the maps in the Navigation System?
The maps are updated around the 4th quarter on a yearly basis. Specifically, maps are as recent as the mapping company camera vehicles have driven any particular highway, road or street across the country, compiled the new maps to work in your navigation system, and then issued the new map DVDs.
How do I adjust the volume to the Navigation System voice?
For 2013 or older model year vehicles, go to the Navigation panel and press: SET>System> Others>Guidance Voice. You can also press the NAVI MENU button located under the screen. On the screen, press NAVI VOICE OTHERS. Use the + and - icons to adjust the volume. While making a call, you can also press the + button on the steering wheel to increase the volume. This volume increase will be shown in the upper right side of the Navigation screen.
If I install a Navigation System with a Hard Disc Drive (HDD) in my vehicle, can I keep the existing 6-disc CD Changer?
For 2013 or older model year vehicles, if you install a Mitsubishi Navigation System with HDD, it comes with a 30GB or 40GB Hard Disc Drive which replaces the 6-CD changer. The HDD has a single disc player, but it allows you to record songs from your CDs directly to the music server any time you wish - the capacity is much greater than a six disc CD player and can save up to 1800 songs (40GB only). NOTE: A 6-CD changer is no longer available for 2014 model year vehicles.
My vehicle came "pre-wired" for the Hands-free/FUSE system3. How do I get the Hands-free system to work with my vehicle?
Your vehicle already has the necessary wiring for Hands-free; in order for it to work you will need to purchase the Hands-free kit and have it installed by your local authorized Mitsubishi Dealer.
I have forgotten the pass code to my phone's address book that I programmed in my Hands-free system. How do I reset it?
Please contact your local authorized Mitsubishi Dealer for assistance.

to learn more about Mitsubishi's Hands-free/FUSE technology.
What is the FAST (Free-Hand Advanced Security Transmitter) key entry system and how does it work?
The FAST-Key allows the driver to unlock the vehicle simply by having the remote in a pocket or purse and gripping the handle, or pressing a button near the door handle on either of the front doors or pressing a button on the trunk. The FAST-Key system provides both convenience and security since the driver does not need to search for a key or remote control while carrying packages or when in a poorly lit area, for example. With the FAST-Key, instead of inserting and turning a key to start the engine, the driver simply presses the ignition knob on the steering column to release the lock, and then twists it to start the engine. On vehicles equipped with a One-touch Start System (OSS), all the driver has to do is press a button near the steering wheel to start the engine.
Can I change the settings so my FAST-key unlocks all the doors?
Yes, if you have a Mitsubishi Navigation System, you can change the settings so that all the doors unlock: Go to SET > Equipment > Power Door Locks > Unlock Operation. If you don't have a Navigation System, you can still change the settings by using the buttons on your FAST-key fob:
- Step 1: Press and hold Lock #1 button.
- Step 2: While holding down the Lock #1 button, wait four seconds and then Press and hold Unlock #2 button (do not allow more than ten seconds to pass).
- Step 3: Keep holding down both buttons and then release Lock #1 button first.
- Step 4: Release Unlock #2 button second.
Repeat the above procedure to return the settings back to the default. If the customer mode does not work, the dealership can use a specialty tool to modify the settings as required. Please click here to locate your nearest Mitsubishi dealership.
Is there an emergency key for the FAST-key?
Yes, there is! In the event the battery dies in your FAST-key fob, you will still be able to start your car! First remove the ignition knob "cap" in your vehicle by slightly depressing the sides of the cap. Next, release the emergency key (looks like a "regular" key) from your FAST-key fob: If you turn your key fob over, there is a button on the back of the fob that releases the silver emergency key. Once released, remove the emergency key, turn it around, and place the end of the key (where the ring is) in the key fob. Insert the key into the ignition and turn the engine over. (You must make sure the FAST-key fob is attached/touching the emergency key when starting the engine; the emergency key does not snap into the FAST-key fob so you may have to hold the key and the fob when turning the key in the ignition. Once the engine has started, you can remove the FAST-key fob, leaving the emergency key in the ignition, and place the fob in a secure location.) You can now drive to your local Mitsubishi Dealer in order to have your vehicle diagnosed. You can also find additional information in your Owner's Manual about the emergency FAST-key operation.
For vehicles equipped with a One-touch Start System, you can find additional information regarding using the emergency key in your Owner's Manual.
What is the warranty coverage for my vehicle?
Your Warranty and Maintenance Manual details what is and what is not covered under the terms of your new vehicle limited warranty and powertrain warranty. Click here
to view warranty information for newer model year vehicles.
How do I find out the warranty on my tires?
Because the tires are not manufactured by Mitsubishi, they are covered by the tire manufacturer and not by Mitsubishi's new vehicle limited warranty. This information is also available in the tire warranty literature that can be found in your vehicle's glove box.
The toll free numbers for each tire manufacturer are:
|Bridgestone/Firestone ||(800) 543-7522|
|Goodyear ||(800) 321-2136|
|Michelin ||(800) 847-3435|
|Toyo ||(800) 442-8696|
|Uniroyal/Goodrich ||(800) 521-9796|
|Yokohama ||(800) 423-4544|
I would like to export my vehicle from the USA to Canada. What do I need to do?
Please contact our Customer Relations Call Center at 1-888-MITSU (1-888-648-7820) for further assistance. Please note that importing your vehicle to Canada (or any other country) voids the warranty on your vehicle, as stated in your Warranty and Maintenance Manual. Canada requires that owners of vehicles less than 15 years old provide proof that the vehicle is free from any recalls before the vehicle may be imported to Canada. The required recall clearance letter can be provided by the Customer Relations Call Center for a nominal fee.
Can I be reimbursed for warranty repairs not performed at an authorized Mitsubishi Dealer?
Mitsubishi does not subsidize or reimburse for any repairs that are performed at a non-Mitsubishi authorized repair facility. Furthermore, there is no provision under the warranty for reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses (i.e. hotel stay, meals, gas, and lost wages) in conjunction with a warrantable part failure.
What happens to my warranty if I modify my vehicle?
Please review your Warranty
manual for information on what is covered and not covered under the manufacturer's warranty. Modifying your vehicle could affect the warranty on your vehicle. Mitsubishi warranty coverage is for manufacturer's defects only and does not cover after-market parts. There is no warranty coverage available for components that have been subjected to accident damage, abuse, or lack of maintenance (including racing, alterations to body, chassis, odometer tampering, etc.).

What are Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs)?
Technical Service Bulletins are technical updates and procedures that MMNA makes available to dealers to help repair a vehicle. A TSB is not a recall or a service campaign.
I am concerned about recent service I received at my local dealership. Who can I contact to discuss my concerns?
Like any business, the management team at your local Mitsubishi Dealer
is in the best position to address any concerns you may have about a recent service. You should ask to speak to the Service Manager or the General Manager at the Dealer to voice your concerns, If you are still not satisfied with the outcome, you may call our Customer Relations Call Center at 1-888-MITSU
(1-888-648-7820) Monday-Friday 7AM to 4PM Pacific Time. We will work directly with your Dealer to facilitate a resolution of your concern.
The SES (or CHECK ENGINE) light is illuminated in my vehicle's instrument cluster. What should I do?
The Service Engine Soon (SES) indicator illuminates when your vehicle's computer has sensed a discrepancy with one of the systems in your vehicle. If you are not experiencing any problems driving the vehicle, schedule an appointment as soon as possible with your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer to have your vehicle diagnosed. If you are experiencing drivability concerns or your vehicle is not operable, you may contact Roadside Assistance to have your vehicle towed to the closest Mitsubishi Dealer. The number is 1-888-MITSU (1-888-648-7820), Option 1/Option 1. Roadside Assistance is available 24 hours a day. NOTE! If you have not tightened your gas cap all the way after filling up, the SES light may illuminate. Be sure to always tighten your gas cap after refueling until you hear it click three times.
How can I obtain a service schedule for the required maintenance of my vehicle?
Can I order parts directly from Mitsubishi Motors North America?
Unfortunately, MMNA does not sell parts directly to the public - please contact your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer
if you are interested in purchasing a specific part.
Can I use ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) in my vehicle that is equipped with a CVT?
The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) requires a specially formulated CVT Fluid: Dia Queen J4 CVTF. Other fluids should not be used with the CVT because the Dia Queen J4 CVTF has been formulated to work as an integral component in the transmission. Other fluids will affect the CVT's operation and may void the warranty of the transmission. This special fluid allows the constant velocity drive belt in the transmission to work without the friction that would quickly destroy the belt should normal ATF be used in the transmission. Check with your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer
if you have any further questions.
Can I use my vehicle to tow a trailer or other vehicle?
Please check your Owner's Manual for specific information about the towing capacity and recommendations for your vehicle.
How does my vehicle need to be towed?
Please refer to your Owner's Manual for specific information on how your vehicle needs to be towed. NOTE: All-wheel drive vehicles must be towed with all four tires off the road.
Where can I find the recommended tire pressure for my vehicle?
The correct tire pressure for your vehicle is listed on the placard attached to the sill of the driver's door. Tire pressures should be checked and adjusted if necessary at least once a month.
How can I calculate my gas mileage?
Here are four quick steps to calculate your MPG:
- Fill your vehicle's fuel tank and record the odometer mileage.
- Drive your vehicle as you normally do.
- Refill the fuel tank. Record the odometer mileage again, as well as the gallons of fuel used.
- Subtract the first mileage number from the second number to know how many miles were driven. Divide the number of miles driven by the number of gallons of fuel used. This is your approximate MPG.
How does the new Forward Collision Mitigation system (FCM)4 work on the 2014 Outlander?
If the Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM)4 determines that a collision may occur by using its integrated radar, it will provide a visual and audible warning on the combination meter to alert the driver of an impending danger, and controls the vehicle braking by increasing the brake fluid pressure or enhancing the brake pedal effort. If a collision is highly anticipated, the system will brake the vehicle automatically in order to avoid or reduce the injury or danger due to the collision/accident.
How does the new Adaptive Cruise Control5 work on the 2014 Outlander?
In addition to conventional cruise control system, an adaptive cruise control5 is available which maintains a safe following distance from the Outlander to vehicle traveling ahead. A radar detects the distance to the vehicle travelling ahead, and decelerates or accelerates the Outlander to maintain the distance.
How does the new Lane Departure Warning6 system work on the 2014 Outlander?
When the Outlander begins to drift close to a lane line, the system produces an audible tone and warning display to alert the driver. The range of the warning operation changes according to the approach speed to the lane. The LDW system warning operates for approximately 10 seconds (maximum). The lane position is monitored by a camera installed on the windshield adjacent to the rain-light sensor.

How much does Mitsubishi Roadside Assistance cost?
Generally, there is no charge for any of the covered services for five full years, regardless of mileage (3 years/36,000 miles for Mitsubishi i-MiEV). However, you will be responsible for the cost of non-warrantable parts, lost key replacement or non-warrantable tire repair. You are also responsible for the cost of any personal services we arrange for you. Beyond the five years, and through the term of the 10-year/100,000 mile Powertrain Limited Warranty for the first owner where applicable, we will arrange for a warrantable tow to your closest Mitsubishi dealership at no cost to you, if needed.
What does my coverage exclude?
Coverage excludes winching of vehicles off road, vehicles disabled in rally-racing or other competitive events and vehicles used for commercial purposes, such as police, taxi, route-delivery, livery, or daily rental services. Please review your warranty and maintenance for more information. MMNA reserves the right to limit and/or charge available services at any time.
What is Trip Interruption?
In the event your vehicle is disabled due to a warrantable condition, and you are more than 150 miles from home and the vehicle has to be kept overnight for repairs, Mitsubishi's Roadside Assistance Plan will reimburse for reasonable documented expenses for meals, lodging, and transportation up to $175 per day for a maximum of three days. To be eligible for this benefit, you must obtain prior authorization from the Roadside Assistance Provider prior to incurring any expenses.

How do I opt-out of marketing offers?
You are automatically opted-in to marketing offers when you donwload the app. If you do not want to receive discounts and offers, you will need to turn off the trip recording and unsubscribe from any Mitsubishi Motors Road Assist+ promotional emails you receive.
A trip is missing.
Occasionally the app will not record enough valid data to register a trip. As a result, the trip will not show up in the news feed or trip history. This usually happens when a trip is too short to provide meaningful amounts of data, location based services are disabled on the phone settings, or the cell service is interrupted causing the GPS to lose the signal.
The distance reported for a trip is not accurate.
GPS accuracy can fluctuate throughout a trip. A portion of the trip could have poor GPS accuracy which may have an effect on the data calculations. In order for the Autostart feature to be as battery efficient as possible, the app may miss the first few hundred yards of trip. If you have an Android device, primarily use the same vehicle, and the vehicle has a Bluetooth device, we recommend that you enable the option to "stop Autostart unless the Bluetooth device is connected", as this will significantly increase the Autostart accuracy as well as enhance battery performance.
As a rule of thumb, the app uses 1% of battery life per hour when detecting Autostart. When recording trips, it sues 6-10% per hour of driving, depending on the phone make, model, and age. It will use more power if the screen is left on, so we recommend to prevent the app from draining your battery completely, a function is built in to terminate the app when your battery reaches a certain level which is preselected for your benefit. You can review and adjust this level in the Settings>Enable Battery Monitor menu, and select the threshold at which the app is deactivated by selecting the "Battery Threshold" setting, also in the settings area.
Multiple Telematics App on a single phone
In order to get the best battery performance and the most accurate data, we recommend only running one telematics app on the phone at any one time.
How much of my data plan will the app use?
The app is designed to minimize the amount of data that is transmitted both to and from your smartphone, and in normal use; the data load is the equivalent of downloading 2-3 songs to your phone. You can further reduce the data impact with a few simple settings, available in the under the main Settings menu. Instead, the app will securely store the trip data on the device until the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network before uploading the data over the Wi-Fi connection. Users selecting this option may see a delay in trip results appearing on the news scroll as trip results are processed after upload.
You can review your overall score and breakdown from the menu tab within the dashboard. The score is broken down by several attributes and an explanation is provided for each one.
What does "Leaderboard" mean?
Once a user opts-in to participate on the leaderboard, their alias will appear showing their rank relative to other users of the app based on the valid scores that have been earned. The user is ranked against other users for the same app. To opt-out of the leaderboard, the user can turn off the public leaderboard from their account settings.

Outlander Plug-In Hybrid EV (PHEV) FAQs
To get the Outlander PHEV basics, range & charging, performance, technology and warranty information, go to: https://www.mitsubishicars.com/outlander-phev/2019/faq
What is regenerative braking?
Regenerative braking occurs when motion energy is converted into electric energy using the motor as a power generator. While decelerating, electric energy will be created and used to charge to the main drive lithium-ion battery. There are two ways of regenerative braking on the Outlander PHEV:
1. If you lift your foot off the accelerator pedal while driving (coasting), a braking force equivalent to the engine braking of a gasoline or diesel powered vehicle will be generated. Also, if you shift the select position into “B” (REGENERATIVE BRAKE) from “D” (DRIVE), the regenerative brake force will become stronger. Shift the selector lever into “B” (REGENERATIVE BRAKE) position according to the driving condition. Controlled via the steering mounted paddle shifters, you can increase or reduce coasting to your liking to charge up the drive battery.
2. As greater brake force is applied by depressing the brake pedal, increased regenerative braking occurs.

What is the driving range of the i-MiEV?
The driving range of the i-MiEV can vary from 45-80 miles depending on driving style. EPA states 62 combined miles. Key examples that will reduce range include:
- Speeding (>65 mi/hr)
- Rapid acceleration/braking
- Using heater (30%) or AC (10%)
TIP: 1 bar of charge = 3 to 5 miles
What are the different indicators on low charge:
- 2 bars remaining – State of Charge (SOC) charge icon flashes
- 1 bar remaining – SOC icon AND bars flashes
- No bars remaining – Turtle icon comes on, you have less than 10 miles to make it to a charger
How many shift positions are there in an i-MiEV?
There are 3 shift positions: D, Eco, and B. B is typically not efficient while driving on the freeway.
D = full acceleration capabilities
Eco = reduces the horsepower to motor and increases regenerative braking – reduced acceleration
B = offers maximum regenerative braking – good for downhill coasting
How do I charge the i-MiEV?
Level 1 & 2 Charging
Make sure the car is in P (Park), open passenger side charge outlet and release on dash, plug in the cable (in wall first 120v) and verify charging. Charging times can vary from house to house depending on voltage and amperage:
Level 1: 120V/8A = 22.5 hours (from Low Battery Warning lamp to 100% capacity)
Level 2: 240V/15A = 7 hours (from Low Battery Warning lamp to 100% capacity)
Level 3 Quick Charging
Make sure the car is in P (Park), open driver side charge outlet and release under the driver seat, follow instructions on the Quick Charger.
Level 3: DC Quick Charger = 30 minutes (from Low Battery Warning lamp to 80% capacity)
What other helpful tips when driving an i-MiEV?
- Turn the key all the way until you feel resistance. Just like a gas car. Green "Ready" means it's on!
- Make sure all the doors and rear lid is completely closed - don't drain the 12v battery
- Don't Speed - speed kills energy. Use ECO to manage energy. Try to stay in the GREEN
