After the TREAD Act was mandated in 2007, all vehicles manufactured in the United States beginning in 2008, must be installed with direct or indirect TPMS systems. The Mitsubishi Outlander has had TPMS sensors installed in all vehicles since 2006.

The Mitsubishi Outlander uses a direct TPMS system, which means TPMS sensors are installed in the wheel. If one or more tires indicate low tire pressure, the TPMS sensors will transfer the information to the vehicle’s ECU. An indicator light (low-line TPMS system) or each tire pressure will show on the dash (high-line TPMS system).

Type of TPMS system:

  • Direct TPMS, TPMS sensors are installed in the wheel, tire pressure is communicated via radio frequency (RF) technology from the sensor to the vehicle’s ECU

Options for TPMS sensor replacement:

  • All OE and Aftermarket TPMS sensor options and service kits can be found in the VT56, VT46 brands, VT55, and VT36 TPMS Tools.

Type of TPMS frequency:

  • 315 MHz

Type of relearn procedure:

  • OBD relearn procedure

Type of TPMS tool required for TPMS reset:

  • VT56 or VT46 branded TPMS tool with OBDII module (Mitsubishi ASX, Eclipse Cross, Lancer, Outlander, Outlander Sport and RVR are now covered since software version DA1-26-20)
  • VT55 TPMS tool with Mitsureset TPMS Accessory

OBD relearn procedure, years 2006-2019:

  • OBDII dongle is required
  • Confirm TPMS sensors are properly installed
  • Adjust tire pressures to placard value
  • Hold TPMS tool on left front tire sidewall next to the valve stem
  • Repeat for the right front, right rear and left rear tires
  • Apply OBD module to the DLC
  • Turn ignition ON
  • Press OK on TPMS tool to transfer sensor data to the ECU
  • Disconnect OBD module from DLC
  • Turn ignition OFF, then ON
  • Drive for up to 5 minutes at 28 mph

Troubleshooting tips

  • If your Mitsubishi has a push-button start ignition, try this tip if there is a transfer failure issue. There are two modes for the Mitsubishi’s push-button start, START and STOP. Make sure to press twice to reveal START during the relearn procedure when the step requires the ignition to turn on before transferring the TPMS sensor ID’s.
  • ATEQ just recently expanded Mitsubishi coverage. The VT56 software version DA1-26-20 now includes new Mitsubishi TPMS coverage thanks to new patented technology, Sync ID, an enhanced OBD communication to increase OBD relearn coverage for Asian, Domestic, and European vehicles. Vehicles covered in the VT56 as of summer 2018 include: ASX, Eclipse, Eclipse Cross, Endeavor, Galant, i-MiEV, Lancer, Mirage, Montero, Outlander, Outlander Sport, Raider, and RVR.
