2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport ES 2.0L (U 4B11) (W1CJC)

Is there anyway minus The M.U.T to write calibrate data? I see zeus has the option but unsure how a person would load the files to it. Customer is really impatient which I understand considering the circumstances. Can NATSF not negotiate anything with Mitsubishi to open their programming software for J2534 pass thru devices? Trans is a w1cjc.

If you can see what your current ROM values are, record them. Clear DTCs with foot half throttle and shifter in reverse (very much like Nissan). Then see if calibration #s change. This is how I've handled some of my Mitsubishis… but yours may vary.

Jared, Can you elaborate on this at all: “Clear DTCs with foot half throttle and shifter in reverse (very much like Nissan).” I have not heard of this before. Thanks

This process is in service information…..there really is nothing to elaborate on. Service information is that brief and to the point as well.….follow the steps and the current calibration should clear and then you perform the teach in process from the scan tool.

Fair enough. I don’t work on Mitsubishi and I had not seen that on Nissans before. Thanks

Yes it is in the service manual when using M.U.T but at this time only dealer has access to that…Im asking how its done on the Snap on Zeus which offers the functionality.

Just use clear DTCs on any scantool while in rev w/ foot on throttle. Almost all service service info directly states to use whatever OEM tool for each car. I use Autel mostly.

This has been my experience. I always record ROM/cal values (when available) before a learn attempt. I then review that #s have changed. You still also have to to fluid degradation reset. This should be under special functions of most quality scantools.

From what others have said, it sounds like you'll be able to complete this procedure with the tooling you have, which is awesome. I just wanted to add that according to Mitsubishi's website, powertrain reprogramming is possible through J2534 on CAN vehicles such as this one. I've not yet performed a Mitsubishi flash so I can't speak to the cost or success. Hope that's helpful…
