Mitsubishi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. I will need the year and model.
Once you tell me the year and model. I will look up the schematic for you.
Mitsubishi Galant, 2000
Ok give me a few minutes.
The column switch is at fault.
You are in luck because your vehicle is under a recall.
Therefore the Mitsubishi dealer will cover it for you.
I will send you the info.
A letter will be sent to all owners of affected vehicles telling them to bring their vehicle to their Mitsubishi Motors dealer to have the L/H and, in some cases, the R/H column switch(es) replaced with improved parts. A sample copy of the customer notification letter appears at the end of this bulletin. All affected VINS will be indicated on the Warranty SuperScreen, so dealers may perform inspection/repair regardless of whether a customer has received a recall notification letter.
DEALER ACTION SUMMARY
QUICK CHECK TO DETERMINE IF A VEHICLE IS INVOLVED IN THE CAMPAIGN AND IF SO, WHAT REPAIRS ARE REQUIRED.
DO NOT begin work on any vehicles without first validating that the vehicle in question is actually involved in the recall and what repair procedures is applicable.
Whether the customer's campaign notification letter is available or not, you should check the vehicle's VIN on the Warranty SuperScreen to verify that the vehicle is involved in the campaign and to obtain the correct campaign number.
NOTICE TO DEALERS: MMSA strongly encourages all dealers to repair all affected vehicles in their inventory prior to sale.
For additional switch replacement information, refer to Service Manual pages: 1999-2000 Galant, page 54A-78 [MEDIC Info.# XXXXX]; and 2000 Eclipse, page 54A84 [MEDIC Info.# XXXXX].
A small supply of these switches will be allocated to dealers who received affected vehicles. Additional orders can be placed through the normal parts ordering system.
Claims for this campaign must be entered as "C" type claims on your Advanced Diamond Network System (ADNS) Warranty Menu. A sample claim follows the labor operation information.
This is the information from Mitsubishi OE.

call the dealer first and check if the recall was performed already.
Thank you very much.
you are welcome
The letter I just posted up was the actual letter from Mitsubishi regarding the recall.
Thank you for the bonus.
I spoke with Mitsubishi Corp. and the local dealership here on Centinnial Parkway, in Las Vegas, NV. Niether were aware of or had any information regarding a recall for my concern for my vehicle. My VIN was not included or affected. It has been repaired after taking it to a mechanic that works on Mitsubishi cars. The Mitsubishi Corp. did take my information about my concern to note for any future complaints that may come to their attention and ask that I keep my receipt for the repair cost to me.
I ask in the future that you find information for correct VINs that apply. Mine wasn't one after all. Thanks anyway.
Hi Nathalia, did you know what they repaired?
What is your vehicle VIN number? I want to look into it.
I'll resend, 4A3AA46G2YE172328
