Re: Confused over various parking sensor options offered

I read up on this also as I have a 4h which has a camera but no sensors. It would appear that the ones offered as accessories are not Mitsubishi manufactured but after market kits anyway! Someone please chime in if I was mis-informed. I have actually heard that they are pretty bad too... In the end ...

Re: Outlander PHEV android App - instruction how to make it

The phone connects briefly to the car but repeatedly switches back to my home wifi. Your phone is set up to automatically switch to the strongest Wi-Fi signal; try pairing when your home, or any other known Wi-Fi connection is out of range. Once the pairing is done the app should connect to the car...

Re: Battery 'whistling' and B5 effectiveness

perfectly normal to have reduced max Regen rate in colder, say < 10degC) I though I was imagining it but it definitely felt less in cold weather for the first few miles at least. Anyone got any idea why this would be? Seems strange to waste regen especially when it is cold where we need extra batte...

Re: Using the "B" levels.

B5 all day, there is nothing but hills and bends where I live in the Cotswolds (UK). When going down long steep hills I find it amusing that everyone is wearing out their brake pads while I generate electricity :mrgreen: That of course all changes when I go on the motorways, then its usually B3 or l...

This prediction will be based on how the previous owner drove the vehicle.
The more you drive it the more accurately it will be able to estimate the range based on your driving habits etc...

Re: Keyless entry problem

It depends on the position of your smartphone. The smartphone messes the signal from the fob. Ah, maybe that was it, I may do a test later. As it was a bit colder here in the UK recently I had my key in my jacket's 'hand' pocket and my phone in the jacket's inside pocket making them pretty close to...

Keyless entry problem

Hi All One of my keys has stopped allowing me to use keyless entry; I cannot open or lock the vehicle without using the key fob buttons. No big problem but why I wonder... one key works fine but the other not. I wont call it the 'spare' key because I use both regularly; one has my work keys on and I...

Re: Poor mpg on outlander phev

On short trips with the heater and hence ICE on I see 15mpg! I have seen it that low but the only reason was that on leaving my house I went up a steep hill and only drove about 3 miles. Obviously the steep hill caused the ICE to kick in and over the short journey was not able to average out the MP...
