Same problem!
Currently in Brisbane
Please advise me of how the cheaper fix works.
Do they use refurbished ABS modules or do they just fix the module? Also I hope it's a long term fix and not a short term one.

Sending my Lancer in to have the recent recalls fixed. Will attempt to ask the dealership to fix the ABS issue as well... I'm sure they will quote me $2k+

Well, after reading all these, and contacting Mitsubishi Aust, very disheartened and **ssed off. My lancer was bought new in April 2010. has done under 68 000km. Been serviced by Mitsubishi exclusively till last service, when we got new tyres, so had it done by reputable dealer at same time. Has driven to school/work and home. Nothing exciting, regular use. ABS light came on, off, on & we notified Mitsubishi when the car went in for the unrelated recall notices we recently received. As it is our of warrantee by 17 mths, the best we could hope for was a goodwill deal, where like previous notes on here, they covered the cost of the item, we covered labour. No such luck. I contacted Customer Care, which should really be named Don't give a toss, as they don't. They reiterated their decision that too bad, so sad. They don't care what the internet says, how many people on forums say they have a problem, how widespread it might allegedly be, nor do they care if they've previously helped some, not others. They don't believe this has any bearing on my car. Or your car. And yet, it seems obvious that IT IS AN ISSUE. And they are aware of it. They arbitrarily decide to help one, but not another. And I didn't yell, in case you're wondering. :( Having owned a Pajerro with my ex, and he has another, while I have the Lancer, I WILL NOT BE GETTING ANOTHER. Disgusted in their handling of this situation. Which is a shame, as I liked the car. And thought that previously Mitsubishi were pretty good. Happy my husband now has a KIA, as their warrantee is 7 years. Will remember to sell our cars just prior to that expiry now though...as I won't hold my breath re ANY car manufacturer doing the right thing. I really do think that perhaps we should start collating data & present it to Mitsubishi and the ACCC. Anyone interested?

Read through the thread for all the information. No one be sure without a proper examination but its likely to be th Ed abs pump which can be rebuilt with a life warranty for a fraction of the costs of a new one from Mitsubishi

Hi folks
Acknowledging that this is an older thread however for interest / the record - Mitsubishi did provide an effective recall for domestic customers for this inherent flaw in the hydraulic ABS brake unit fitted to vehicles of this generation that used this platform (Lancer, Delica, Outlander etc):

http://recall.mitsubishi-motors.co.jp/R ... erno=SC144

Helpful for us in Australia? Probably not really much more than news about the fact that some of our friends on this forum have been lucky enough to have local dealerships assist with the cost of replacement.

I do however think (acknowledging here that Mitsi Shareholders prolly don’t care a great deal about what I think) it’s woeful for Mitsubishi to treat thier domestic custommers with greater regard than they do their customers from other markets. I’ve always found the whole premis of ‘managing expectations’ somewhat contemptuous.

In this instance I’m annoyed as the problem seems so un-mitsubishi. The rest of the car just works so well. The company have admitted to this flaw by affecting a domestic recall (huge market!!!), on a part that WILL fail as a result of that flaw..... rant over

Cheers

Half of their problem with not caring about domestic customers here in Australia, is the fact the company has been through so many mergers in the last decade. Diamler Chrysler Mitsubishi, is now Nissan Renault Mitsubishi. Mitsubishi is the small fish here as they used to be a power house but seems they have slipped by the wayside somewhere. Slowly but surely you may see great Japanese brands swallowed up by European car makers...

Right now I wouldn't mind a hybrid Nissan/Renault/Mitsubishi Lancer sharing the underpinnings of another car as long as its modern, has its own look and full of the latest tech which is missing from the Lancer because its basically dead now.

I now some parts of the Lancer (and other Mitsubishi's) share parts with some Euros already and while other makes are still able to make small cars its sad that Mitsubishi is going down the same path as many in the US. The big 3 over their recently said they will be moving more towards SUVs and 'Trucks' and away form sedans and hatchbacks. Part of this is customers in the US have been going towards SUVs for years but its also a result of Trump and his tariffs because the likes of Ford were gonna source the next Focus from its plants in China.

Interesting fact, Tarifs on Chinese cars etc coming into the states were low, while the opposite direction were high.

also Chinese entities are able to own and operate factories in the US while the opposite was not allowed.

Volvo has also opened a manufacturing plant in the US for their automotive arm.

This recall is not related to stuck brushes in the ABS pump. They did a few recalls on drive belt, pulley, ETACS, indicator stalk, sun roof so it is not like they haven't done anything. Different countries have different recall standard. Losing indicators / lights or power steering suddenly is a biggie. ABS failing isn't.

FM2 - for clarity I’ve actually been very VERY impressed with the lengths Mitsubishi have gone to re the minor recalls you mention. I’m not the original owner of our cars (2 of similar vintage, only 1 with this problem atm...touch wood), however their recall letters have tracked us down nonetheless and the way they’ve managed the whole process has been pretty slick.
Sadly Blueflash, I think FM2 is right too re recall ‘standard’ (sic) across jurisdictions... I just don’t think the ACCC has a part to play on this one. There might be something in a politely and objectively phrased naming and shaming campaign that RACV / NRMA article could champion...but then.... given that there is a $500 fix available locally. For me it really is all about the vibe your honour (and Mabo!)
FM2 - with the very greatest of respect - you are quite wrong - that link is to a JDM recall - locally termed campaign. I also respectfully disagree with you re the loss of ABS, EST, Traction Control (maybe not so much the hillstart assist) for my family is a biggie....but then you know what they say about opinions being a part of the non gender specific anatomy most of us are blessed with (if you think yours is a better one than mine then I’m happy to let you have that one without argument!!!).

so my wifes 2009 lancer is added to the list of the ABS fault issues, again dealer is offering to do it for $2600, bugger that. ABS service error has been coming up on and off for the last month, slowly getting worse to the point of coming on every time the car is started. the fact it cleared its self leads me to believe it could be the issue mentioned below with the brushes in the pump motor

after watching the video posted by a UK member in this thread
viewtopic.php?f=78&t=18806&start=15

i think i'll try giving it ago, and if worse comes to worse just get a 2nd hand one to get me out of trouble and failing that pay the $500 for this mob to overhaul it: http://www.absrepair.com.au/products/#mitsubishi

first thing i'm going to try is bashing the hell out of the motor, if it clears the error is fair to say its the brushes that are cactus but at least that will identify the problem. If i do pull it apart i'll try and do a write up about overhauling it.

It is a shame that these things aren't built to be serviceable. Imagine if we can just remove the pump using an allen key and swap a new one in or take it to a electric motor repair shop while the unit is still in the car. No need to mess with brake fluid and bleeding.
