Q: Is my phone compatible with the factory Mitsubishi Bluetooth® Hands Free System?
A: Check the list of compatible phones, to see if the phone is Bluetooth® supported.
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: Please refer to your Owner’s Manual for instructions.
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 does the Audio 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 three 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.
• Bluetooth® Streaming - Once your device is paired to the FUSE system, you can stream music from your device through the FUSE system to your
vehicles 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 uses AVRCP 1.3 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) which does support song information (title, artist, track, etc.). However,
you must have a device that also supports AVRCP 1.3 to supply that information to the Mitsubishi system.
Q: My Outlander 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 lower 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: I am having trouble with my Power Liftgate working properly. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Am I doing something wrong?
A: First check the ACTIVE/OFF button located below the climate control unit and check to see that this button is set to ACTIVE. If so, then you will find that
the system needs to have ALL the doors unlocked for the unit to work properly. If only the driver’s door is unlocked, the power liftgate button will not
Q: My Outlander 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: 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 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. After checking and hearing three clicks and 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:If your Outlander is equipped with a One Touch Start button and the door does not open, take the key out from the fob and unlock the door
manually. Put the key back into the fob and insert it into the slot provided below the Climate Control Switches. Starting the engine and charging
the operation mode should now be possible. Remove the F.A.S.T.-key from the key slot after starting the engine or charging the operation mode.
