What are the defects?

The brake warning lamp may illuminate due to improper software judgement that the vacuum pump relay has seized. On selected vehicles the location of the brake vacuum pump exhaust may allow mud or sand to accumulate, and if this contains road salt, corrosion may result blocking the exhaust port of the pump. Either condition can result in ineffective operation of the brake vacuum pump.

What are the hazards?

The brake booster vacuum may become low, resulting in lower brake booster assistance. If this occurs the stopping distance may increase, potentially causing an accident.

What should consumers do?

Mitsubishi Motors Australia will contact all known owners by mail as soon as possible and advise them to present their vehicle to a dealer for rectification.
