Mitsubishi Motors recalls ASX, Lancer, Lancer Sportsback and Space Star Models
December 19, 2018
Mitsubishi Motors is carrying out a voluntary recall of its ASX, Lancer, Lancer Sportsback and Space Star Models. These particular vehicles are being recalled because:
- Description of the technical defect that leads to the highest risk level:
Due to an inappropriate ECU programming for the battery state of charge (S.O.C.), the AS&G ECU may decide it can stop the engine even if the battery is deteriorated, i.e. the S.O.C is below the set threshold for AS&G correct operation.
- Risk description (how the technical defect leads to the risk):
In this case, the battery may have insufficient capacity to be able to restart the engine. In heavy traffic conditions this can be a hazard as the engine cannot be re-started.
These cars were produced from June 2010 to April 2018 and 660 vehicles are affected
|ASX||2011 to 2017|
|Space Star||2013 to 2018|
What to do:
The owners of all affected vehicles will be contacted by letter and asked to take their vehicle to a Mitsubishi dealer or authorised repairer for remedial action.
