Mitsubishi Stoplight Switch
This bulletin applies to 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vehicles, regarding an adjustment of the stoplight switch. The switch is inserted into the retainer and rotated approximately ¼-turn clockwise to lock it into position. Following is the adjustment procedure:
Hold the brake pedal in the UP position.
Insert the D-shaped switch into the retaining clip with the flat side of the switch at approximately the 8-o’clock position until it bottoms out against the brake pedal. Do not apply excessive pressure.
Rotate the switch clockwise about ¼-turn to lock it in place.
Confirm that the stoplights do not illuminate with the brake pedal in the released position.
Use a feeler gauge to confirm that the gap between the switch body and the brake pedal is 0.020” – 0.060” (0.5 – 1.5mm).
