NHTSA safety recall results (79)

Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


03V194
On certain sport utility vehicles, water could enter the front floorboard area from openings in the side sill or upper dash area. This water could collect under the seat and cause electrical corrosion to occur in the harness connectors that contain the wiring for the seatbelt pre-tensioner, side air bag impact sensor, and stop lamps. Electrical corrosion of the harness could cause the seat belt pre-tensioner to malfunction, the side air bag not to deploy and/or the brake lamps not to illuminate or to falsely illuminate.
Dealers will inspect the side sills and dash panel for openings that may allow water leakage into the vehicle cabin. In addition to sealing any openings that may be found, the wiring connectors will be inspected for signs of electrical corrosion. The floor harness will be replaced if it has any signs of water damage or electrical corrosion. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.

Component not known


01V254
On certain sport utility vehicles, the accumulator that is installed on the hydraulic brake booster may have been improperly manufactured. Over a period of time, this could result in leakage of the pressurized nitrogen gas from inside the accumulator. The loss of this gas pressure could result in an abnormal noise from the left side of the dash panel when the brakes are applied, and possibly a delayed first time brake boost assist after the vehicle has been parked for a period of time.
Dealers will install an improved accumulator. The manufacturer reported that owner notification would begin during October 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.

03V442
On certain passenger vehicles, the fuel return line hose fitting on the electric fuel pump may be restricted, causing excessive fuel pressure to build up in the fuel injection system. Excessive fuel pressure may result in a leak in the fuel return hose. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.
Dealers will inspect the fuel pump pressure. Those vehicles exhibiting higher than normal fuel pump pressure will receive fuel pump modifications. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during December 2003. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037 or Mitsubishi Caribbean at 1-800-981-0452.
