Q: What should I do when my engine is hard to start?
A: Pressing on the accelerator pedal about half way down while cranking the engine may make it easier to start. When the engine starts, release your foot
from the accelerator pedal.
Q: Is my phone compatible with the factory Mitsubishi Bluetooth® Hands Free System?
A: Check the list of compatible phones at to see if the phone is Bluetooth® approved.
Q. Why doesn’t my device (USB, iPhone, Bluetooth® Audio, etc.) work?
A: You need to press the Mode button to select the appropriate device you want to use.
Q: How do I use Bluetooth® Audio (if equipped)?
A:On the Display Audio radio, touch Menu and scroll to BT Audio. If your vehicle is equipped with Navigation, press Mode and scroll to BT Audio.
Q: How do I transfer calls from Bluetooth® back to my mobile phone’s handset?
A:While on the call, press the speech button on your steering wheel and, once prompted, say “Transfer Call.”
Q: Why does the FUSE Hands-free Link System™ take so long to upload my music from my audio music device?
A: The Mitsubishi system can read multiple device structures in order to catalog the music files for easy playing and listening. Depending on the amount
of music you have on your device, this may take a few minutes.
Q: What are the different ways of playing music from my portable music player through the stereo system in my vehicle, when equipped with the FUSE Hands-free
Link System™?
A:There are two ways of playing music through your vehicle’s sound system.
• USB port - The FUSE system will find the songs in your device and categorize them according to Artist, Album, and Genre. Then you can have
the FUSE system find and play the song in your device that you prefer without physically searching your device. This is done via voice commands.
Note: In this mode the storage device will also be charged.
• Bluetooth® Streaming - Once your device is paired to the FUSE system, you can stream music from your device through the FUSE system to your
vehicle’s sound system. No wires or cords. Your music stops and restarts at the same song when you exit and when you re-enter the vehicle. Voice
commands are not available.
Q: Why can’t I control the music track selection via voice commands while Bluetooth® streaming?
A:The Mitsubishi system is not configured to support this functionality.
Q: My Outlander Sport is equipped with “Micron Air Filtration”. Where is the filter located and does it need servicing?
A: The micron air filter is a small filter element which is located in the HVAC box just behind the glove box. The filter should be inspected frequently for
debris. The filter works well at filtering incoming air however the filter will clog and lead to reduced outlet air volume if not serviced on a regular basis.
Q: My Outlander Sport has two 12V accessory outlets. What devices can be plugged into these outlets?
A:Both of these outlets are protected with 15 amp fuses. Always check the current draw rating of any device prior to use in the vehicle. If the device is
rated above 12 amps, this could lead to circuit overload and the electrical fuse opening (no current flow).
Q: A buffeting noise is heard when the rear windows are rolled down. How do we eliminate?
A: Roll down the front windows about 2-3” to even out the air pressure within the vehicle.
Q: I only have one remote for the remote start system on my Outlander Sport. Can I get a second one?
A:No. Only one remote can be programmed per vehicle for security reasons.
Q: How can I get the MPG stated on the window sticker?
A: Vehicle driving styles will greatly affect MPG. Avoid sudden abrupt starts from a stop and let the vehicle coast to the traffic light. Both of these
styles will increase mileage and reduce brake lining wear.
• Vehicles are designed to achieve the best fuel mileage when they are driven at the speed limits on the freeway. Avoid driving over 65 mph.
• Under inflated tires will increase rolling resistance and will reduce fuel mileage. Check tire pressure frequently to increase miles per gallon.
Proper tire pressure also ensures optimum tire performance (including tire wear.)
Q: How does the Navigation System choose a certain route?
A:The system takes into account traffic conditions, road types, distance and road width to recommend the route.
Q: Why does my Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) make a noise?
A:Each time your vehicle is started and driven a short distance, you will hear the sound of the ABS motor operating from the right front engine
compartment. This is the normal sound the Anti-Lock Braking System makes when performing a self check.
Q: Why do my Rain Sensing Windshield Wipers operate on their own when it’s not raining?
A: • When the lever is in the AUTO position, the rain sensor detects rain or snow and automatically turns on the wipers. • The wipers may automatically operate when things such as insects or foreign objects are affixed to the windshield on top of the rain sensor
or when the windshield is frosted over.
• To stop the wipers, place the lever in the OFF position.
Q: Why does my check engine light come on after I put gas in my car?
A:There are many reasons why your check engine light may illuminate. Before calling your dealership, make sure the
fuel cap is fully engaged and you have heard three clicks when tightening it. If after checking and hearing three clicks and driving for awhile the
light is still on, contact your dealership.
Q: How do I use the emergency key when the F.A.S.T.-key battery or vehicle battery is run down?
A: Remove the emergency key from the F.A.S.T-key fob and manually unlock the door. Once inside the vehicle insert the F.A.S.T.-key fob into the
key slot in the glove box. Starting the engine and changing the operation mode should now be possible. Remove the F.A.S.T.-key from the slot
after starting the engine or changing the operation mode.
