Consumers have filed a total of 3 complaints related to Mitsubishi FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE: WARNINGS.
While traveling on the freeway at 70mph, the car suddenly started flashing warnings of "ev system required stop safely", "rbs service required! ", and the service engine soon light came on. Also, i wasn't able to accelerate over 20mph. I quickly exited the freeway and turned off the car. When i restarted it, the car seemed to operate normally as far as the acceleration, but the service engine light soon light remained and the "brake! " forward collision mitigation system started to randomly kick in. Interestingly, in the week leading up to the system shutting down the forward collision mitigation system had randomly kicked in a few times, but i assumed there was something low in the road i wasn't seeing. I've also experienced issues with the audio system and rear camera in the week leading up to this incident; the rear camera twice never appeared when in reverse and the audio source would erratically switch from xm radio to apple car play on its own. The vehicle had just under 1,700 miles on it when this happened.
Fcm keeps blinking and alarm sounding when i started the car. My car been service at car dealership since purchased. After 100k miles they now discovered catalic converter need to be replaced per dealership. But nothing about fcm problem.
When driving the vehicle and a approaching another vehicle, person bicycle or object, the fcm, forward collision mitigation system is suppose to slow the vehicle down and eventually stop the vehicle and give and audible alert. It does nothing. I took the vehicle to cerritos mitsubishi in california and asked them to fix the problem. They connected the vehicle to their computer for diagnosis and a code came back under system name: fcm/ldw/ahb, and under diagnostic trouble code c1809 (system temporary not available). I was told by the service manager that they needed me to leave the vehicle and they needed to call mitsubishi to find out what that code was for. They call me back that evening and said the vehicle was ready to be picked up and said it was working fine. I went out on a test drive with the head mechanic the fcm was still doing the same thing and he said he could not find a problem with the system. I suspect that they just cleared the code and gave the vehicle back to me. I took the vehicle to puenta hills mitsubishi (where i had purchased the vehicle from) and left it over the weekend. I was told by the service manager that they needed me to leave the vehicle and they needed to call mitsubishi to find out what that code was for, again. They call me back that evening and said the vehicle was ready to be picked up and said they drove it and could not find a problem. The fcm (forward collision mitigation) still does not slow the vehicle down and eventually stop the vehicle or give and audible alert. It does nothing.
