I have a 2020 Outlander Dynamic. This model came without parking sensors so we decided to get some fitted. We live a long way from the dealer so I bought genuine Mitsubishi sensor kits and had them fitted locally. The sensors work well but the front sensors can be irritating. The car is parked overnight in a garage and the front of the car is quite close to the back wall of the garage so as soon as you switch the car on the front sensor kicks in, doing what it is supposed to do. Unlike the rear sensor which has a reasonable sound which is not too loud, the front sensor is very loud and has a piercing note. Is it possible to

1. Turn down the volume of the front sensor?
2. Change its default to off so that it only works when you press the on/off switch. That is the set up on our other car?
3. Any other ideas?

Did you get any feedback Roy?
I have exactly the same issues. Car fitted with PDC front and back by main dealer. Rear is ok but front go off with a constant tone at below 6mph. Nothing in range! I'd switch the front off if i could find the unit...local main dealer is trobule shooting but says its ok???
Is ypur's still faulty or did you fix it??

Hi Dave

Sorry for the delay but the news is good. A local garage tried to fix it but couldn't.

I then took it to the former Mitsubishi dealer in Dorchester. Their lead technician dealt with it by fitting a compatible (or oem?) rocker switch to the front sensor control on the lower dashboard. Works a treat. Its default is to be off and when front sensor is needed, just flick the switch and switch it back off when not needed.

Thanks Roy. I took mine to my local Main dealer who contacted the OEM and fitted a set of new front sensors. I was just inside the warranty from the OEM. My dealer didn't sell me the car so was pleased they agreed to repair them under the OEM warranty which was 1 year for dealer fitted sensors ! All good again although they do tweet every now and then when they are wet...can live with that! Cheers Dave
