Mitsubishi Triton 2008 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi Triton here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Mitsubishi Triton 2008: Central locking issues
A lot of cars don’t like having a battery that is low on charge or being jump-started. Either of these things can cause the body computer or even the main ECU to start playing up. My guess in this case would be the body-computer which controls the dashboard functions and things like the central locking system.
Before you rush out and pay a mechanic to look at the vehicle, there are a couple of things to try. The first is to take the remote-control for the central locking and hold the button down for at least 30 seconds. Sometimes this is enough to reset the computer and return the vehicle to normal.
If that doesn’t work, get the engine up to temperature, shut it down and carefully disconnect the battery. Leave it that way for at least 30 minutes, reconnect the battery and see if that has produced a reset. You might find the car will run a bit roughly (mainly at idle) at first until the reset computer relearns a few parameters, so be careful on the first drive after trying any of this.
Mitsubishi Triton 2008: Transmission warning light
It could be a number of things, and the only way to establish the cause of the light flashing is to have a mechanic check it.
Mitsubishi Triton 2008: Petrol fuel consumption
What's a '08 petrol-powered Triton like on fuel?
From what we can see, that specific Triton carried an official combined fuel consumption figure of 10.9L/100km.
In the real world, you can expect to achieve a similar number on a constant highway cruise, but be prepared for it to climb to something more like 15L/100km around town. So more like a six cylinder modern Falcon or Commodore than a Corolla or Mazda3.
