    I own a 07 Mitsubishi Outlander. On Friday, the 'ASC off - Service required' warning appeared on my dashboard.

    I took it to a friendly local garage who ran a diagnostic and came up with the fault code 21022.

    Unfortunately the garage doesn't know what this means and some extensive googling has failed to find out either.

    Can anyone help me - I'm loathe to take the car to my dealer who is quoting £50+VAT just to read the diagnostic code!

    Cheers!

  2. Just checked;


    "Ha-ha. A-ha-ha-ha. AHHH-HAAA-HAAAA-HAA-HA!

    Should have bought a KIA Sportage"

    Certainly a rapid response but not quite what I was after...

    Does the Kia Sportage take a pushchair length ways in the boot?
     
  4. Sorry. No idea about the pushchair, but there was some BFG-based Doris bumping her gums about how good the Sportage is on here a few weeks back; try her.
     
  5. The one Kia dumped and told her to get stuffed?
     
  6. Shuuuuuuuuuush! I'm on commission here...............
     
  7. Oops sorry, yeah they're great motors them Mercedes.
     
  8. Strange error code there, OBDII codes all start with a letter P or C followed by a 4 digits number.
     
  9. Maybe it's just a typo, should it be P1022?
    Possible causes are
    1. Failed engine oil pressure switch
    2. Failed engine oil control valve
    3. Open or short circuit
     
  10. Have you tried calling a Mitsubushi main dealer and asking to speak to a technician?
     
  11. Ho ho...you mean speak to an 18 year old apprentice fitter. Main dealers don't do "mechanics" anymore.

    As for the code...would agree..should have a P.

    As for "Should have bought a Sportage"...nahhh..Should have bought a Subaru Outback :)
     
  12. Mercedes do.
     
  13. And jolly good fitters they are.

    I emailed my local Mitsubishi dealer - they also said that their error codes start with a P and then offered to read it for me for £60.

    Here you go:

    Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Low Voltage

    Don't use Google - their results are biased to suit Google's business objectives.

    I use the DuckDuckGo search engine. The right answer came up 2nd result (and your ARRSE thread 4th result).

    PS: My invoice for £60 is on the way...
