  1. I tried the procedure but didn’t work. The wrench symbol just blinks and no change. I noticed the year for which this blog is for notes up to 2010, my outlander is a 2013. Could it be a different procedure for this year?

    1. If you have tried this procedure how to reset warning light and it did not work means that the procedure is the same for Mitsubishi Outlander from 2013.

      You have Mitsubishi Outlander second generation or third generation ?

    2. I have Mistubushi Outlander I tried the procedure but didn’t work. My own is 2013 not 2010 pls I need you help tanx.

      1. You have an Outlander third generation, i don’t think that you can reset the warning service light like second generation. I have not seen a model like yours to try the procedure.

    I reset maintenance light somehow I went past the recommended 7500/6mths and ended up with 14000/13months, I did see the 7500 after my reset but when I went back to re check again to be sure ( after having reset by starting car) I some how got it to set to that 14000/13month, Is it ok to leave it there? I have tried to go back to 7500 but it will not change one the wrench is blinking.

  3. Hi! I had the same issue as Sue but mine is now at 25 months. How do I reset it back to 13 months please? Thank you so much for your help.

    1. We will return step by step on this procedure how to change the time for you inspection service.

  4. Hi I have the tires replaced with different tires after I hit a boulevard. So after the tires were replaced the same light is still on it says Service Required. Can you explain what that could mean because I need my vehicle to travel out of town.

    1. This means that you must change the engine oil and filters. Please tell me what car do you have.

  5. I have a Mitsubishi ASX 1.8 DID 2010. I’ve got he “check engine oil level” meaning the particle filter process did not finish several times and diesel entered the oil chamber raising oil level. I’ve replaced the oil but the warning keeps displaying. Tried a OBD connection but this message is not displayed on the ECU. how can I reset this warning?



    1. As far as I know, the particle filter it has his own warning light. But if you’re sure that this is the problem to turn off the indicator for particle filter, you must take the car on a highway, and go steadily with 2500 rpm in the last gear 5 or 6, it depends on what gearbox you have. If that doesn’t work try a forced regeneration you will need a computer with Mitsubishi soft to do that. If that doesn’t work either in most cases there were problems with the injectors, after reconditioning them, the car will be able to do automatic regeneration.

  6. I reset the oil change and maintenance but display that next service will be in1 month. How do I enter more months and kilometers

    Everyone who reset their maintenance clock and went over like me, we are screwed… Notice the admin never came back with the answer like he said he would?
    I called Mitsubishi service and they said it CAN NOT be changed backwards….
    Just wait and manually watch it until you catch up. Poor design!!!

    1. Hello Bruce, our auto mechanics are still searching to see if we can solve this problem. Unfortunately the place where we are Mitsubishi is a very rarely met car. We do everything possible to find one and try to see how to fix this problem.

  8. Hi , here i am with same problem as Mike’s, just being curious, any solution found? Or just going back to the dealer and let them handle with what they cooked. Mitsubishi Owners are convinced there is no fault of dpf filter, is just a speculation dealer is using to bring you back in service and pay for nothing.ECU brings diesel in oil because of an illegal software used to display a faulty and stressing the owner.

    1. Hi, I updated the answer to mike, you can read it and try what I wrote there. Have a nice day.
