Hi Paul,

The routing diagram is under the hood.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

SOURCE: 2004 mitsubishi outlander cooling fans not operating

TAKE A PEEK UNDER THE HOOD IN THE FUSE PANEL FOR THE FUSE AND RELAY FOR THE COOLING FAN. IF THE FUSE IS BLOWN THEN REPLACE IT. IF YOU SUSPECT THE RELAY TO BE BAD THEN TEST IT BY SWAPPING THE FAN RELAY WITH ANOTHER ONE WITH THE SAME PINS ON THE BOTTOM. MAKE SURE IT IS THE SAME SIZE AS WELL. HOPE THIS HELPS.. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: does the radiator top come off on the mitsubishi

No your radiator has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
It is a radiator with crimp on takns, and the seal has gone bad.

All you can do is have it replaced.

And please dont keep driving the car till you get the radiator replaced, or you could easily overheat and destroy your engine.

SOURCE: My accessory sockets (cigarette lighter) are not

It's fuse # 25 a 15 amp. There is a relay in this circuit and the ignition switch must be on or accessory. By the way, sometimes what you are trying to plug in just doesn't make good contact.

Hi I have a 2003 mitsubishi outlander with an overheating problem.I understand that there was a recall to replace the cooling fan controller.We are now in 2011 do I still qualify for the recall to...


I had the exact same problem with my 03' Outlander. I called the dealer and gave them the last 8 digits of the VIN and found that my Outlander had "no outstanding recalls". Tough luck. Apparently, the recall/repair was done a few years ago by the previous owner and now its acting up again.
Well, have no fear, the problem is caused by a defective cooling fan controller which is located on the inside wall of the radiator. You cant miss it. Disconnect the plug thats attached to the input of the controller (it comes from the ECU in the fuse box on the drivers side engine compartment). Check for 12VDC coming into the unit from the ECU to make sure its got voltage when the engine is running with the AC on. If it does, and the fans are not running, the unit is most likely the problem. You can also check the two outputs to the two fans for 12vdc to make sure the fans arent both bad. (unlikely)

Give the unit a tap with a wrench with the AC on and engine running (be careful) to see if the relays free up and the fans start running. It worked on mine! Now the car runs cool as a cucumber even at long red lights and in traffic jams. Sometimes the relays can get stuck. I hope this helps.

How do I open up the dash to get out the ac control unit, dials are not working so I wanted to replace the unit


Wut do u meanthe dials are not working?
U mean the FAN don't work?
If the FAN don't work, its not the panel u have to remove.... its the resistor block that controls the FAN and the SPEED!

Ac problem


I just fixed mine. same problem, no ac light no fan. inside the heater control assembly there is a electric wiper arm on the fan switch. This arm connects all power for fan and ac. Mine broke out of the fan control switch. Dash is not too much problem to get out. Have to pull top dash center section out by puching forward and lifting out. pull all screws on center dash counsel. remove radio, two side covers that hide screwsand lower trim that holds emergency flasher switch. remove cables from heater control and wires and remove. Took me about an hour. The code on radio will need to be reset so make sure you have that handy. Hope this helps..

Blower fan only works on high


If it is working at all then the relay and fuse is good and the problem is either the little vacuum hose on the back of the control switch panel or the panel itself.

Ac & electrical


There is a recall on the blower switch sensor in '03 Outlanders. We had all of your symptoms until we had the sensor replaced free-of-charge at a Mitsu dealership. Immediately solved our problems.

A/c compressor not engaging.


The contacts in the ignition key switch have been known to not make contact when the ignition is turned on. Remove the switch contacts. It can be removed from the key lock. Spray some contact cleaner into the contact cluster through some small openings, reassemble the switch and work the key back and forth to clean the contacts. Then see if the AC clutch gets voltage. Note that there is a little light in the AC pushbutton on the AC controls. The light some come on if the circuit to the clutch is complete
