Earlier today, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has requested for owners of select models imported from Japan and locally assembled, to replace the engine control relay of their vehicles. There are around 5,000 units said to be affected for this recall campaign period. Exact details for the cars affected by this recall are listed below:
This relay protects the engine’s ECU from any sudden surge of voltage. If this is not replaced, the internal parts of the relay may fail and subsequently affect the engine’s ECU function.
Separately, MMM will also be conducting a Field Fix Campaign to replace the passenger side airbag inflator for 115 units of the Pajero Exceed manufactured from March 2010 – July 2012. Some of the passenger side airbag may release metal fragments when deployed, causing injuries to the driver. This exercise is part of the Takata airbag recall campaign worldwide.
“Safety is our utmost priority thus MMM is taking this initiative to assure customer’s safety and regrets the inconvenience caused to the affected customers,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
MMM will issue notification letters to all affected Mitsubishi owners and the full cost of the replacement will be borne by the company. MMM kindly requests all affected customers to make an appointment at any of the Mitsubishi Motors authorized service centres for the replacement of the above. For the list of service centres and further information, please visit their website or contact their Customer Careline at 1800-18-8161 (9 am – 5 pm, Mondays to Fridays excluding public holidays).
