Mystery Switch

Tue Jan 12, 2021 9:12 am

I got my new 2020 GT (Canadian) the other day. Got a great deal by trading in my 2018 PHEV that had been in come minor accidents ... I don't know if I got a going out of business sale price (I have no idea if they are or aren't), New Year's Special, or if I got the better end of a dealer :) Hey, I'm happy.

But, I have a question: What is the switch located next to the sunroof button. In that cluster there is the car microphone, a little LED, the sunroof switch and this toggle switch. I've looked in the crappy manual (really awful manual!), but can't find any reference to it.

Thanks.

I have a different model to you, but I have a switch that operates the interior light.

It has three positions: Off, On and Auto.

No, I don't think that is it. I'll post a picture of it and we can all wonder :)

Took a picture. Seems that it has something to do with the doors. Wouldn't have known except that the lettering "door" shows in the picture. Lock door? Open it while driving? Child lock?

It's definitely the front interior light cluster switch. On, Off or On with Door open.

If you find the printed manual awkward, I recommend downloading the pdf version from the Mitsubishi website. The search text function can then be used to more easily locate pertinent information.

Page 8-72 of the manual (pdf is much easier to search).

Cant paste a copy unfortunately...

I can't find a manual for the 2020 online. I just got one for a 2020 and will look at that. Okay ... looking. Yup -- interior light settings. I'll have to play with it a bit later. Thanks!!!!!

So it is the same as mine.

i.e.

Off (always off)
On (always on)
Auto (turns on when the door is opened and turns off again a few seconds later)
