2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Problems

Hard or no start condition due to worn camshaft sensor support

A hard or no start condition with fault codes P0335 and/or P0340 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) may be due to abnormal wear of the camshaft position sensor support. Our technicians tell us a revised sensor support is available to correct this issue.

The clear coat paint may peel

It is not uncommon for the clear coat paint to develop white spots and begin peeling. In most cases Mitsubishi will not cover out of warranty repairs for this condition.

HVAC Temperature Knob Hard to Turn

The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) temperature control knob may be hard to turn. Mitsubishi Motors has released a service bulletin outlining the necessary repairs. Repairs involve installing a new air blend door lever and link, lubing the blend door track, and installing a filter on top of the blower motor housing to prevent entry of dirt and debris. If the temperature control assembly has been damaged it will require replacement also.

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Recalls

Front Lower Control Arms Corrode And Detach

The front lower control arms may corrode and detach from the vehicle cross member. Dealers will inspect the front cross members and either apply a sealing anti-corrosion agent or replace the front cross member depending on the severity of existing corrosion free of charge to resolve the concern.

Front Passenger Air Bag Defect

In a crash that deploys the passenger front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.

Passenger Airbag Inflator

Moisture sensitive airbag system components may deteriorate in humid climate regions, causing an increase in inflator pressure which ruptures when passenger airbags are deployed. Injury can result from inflator parts striking an occupant. Dealers will replace affected airbag inflators to correct this concern. This recall supersedes recall 14V-421.
