Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. offers Right-To-Repair(R2R) capability in accordance with national MOU(Memorandum of understanding) and J2534-1 Powertrain Control Module (PCM) re-flash capability in accordance with CARB & EPA regulations.


What is R2R (Right-To-Repair)?

Under the terms of R2R (Right-To-Repair), Mitsubishi Motors North America provides access to diagnostic information (MUT3-SE) for model year 2018 and newer vehicles. You must follow Mitsubishi Service Manual procedures for proper repair.


Requirements to Use J2534-1 Re-flash / R2R (Right-To-Repair) Capability on Mitsubishi Motors Vehicles

  • A Mitsubishi Motors Technical Service Bulletin Indicating the Need for a PCM Re-flash


As stated in the introduction, Mitsubishi Motors authorizes a PCM re-flash to be applied only in the event that such a procedure is supported by a specific Mitsubishi Motors Technical Service Bulletin (TSB). Any PCM re-flash applied not in accordance with a TSB may result in an unsatisfactory repair.


Because J2534-1 is an SAE standard, in theory, any J2534-1 certified device should be able to be used to perform J2534-1 re-flashes. PCM initialization (required when replacing a Mitsubishi PCM) can be performed with the J2534-1 device with newer CAN equipped vehicles. Legacy K-line equipped vehicles will require the MUT-III Special tool to accomplish PCM initialization (See Special Tools section). For a chart of CAN and K-Line equipped vehicles, please refer to CAN/KLINE Chart. Several special tool manufacturers have J2534-1 pass-thru devices available for sale. Mitsubishi Motors testing to date has found that there are some differences between the available devices in the market. Therefore, Mitsubishi Motors can only recommend the use of devices that have been validated to work on Mitsubishi Motors vehicles with Update Manager and Pass-Thru CAN (Mitsubishi Motors software applications to perform PCM procedures using a J2534-1 pass-thru device).


Before using either Mitsubishi Motors J2534-1 software application, be sure to have a validated J2534-1 Pass Thru Device. Currently the Drewtech CarDAQ-Plus (with 1.9.24 drivers) and the BOSCH MVCI (with drivers) have been validated with Mitsubishi Vehicles. For more information on these devices, please go to www.drewtech.com and www.boschdiagnostics.com.


Note: At this time, the Actia PassThru XS+ has not been validated with newer re-flashes.

  • A Windows Based Personal Computer


A personal computer is required to host Update Manager / Pass-Thru CAN and connect to the J2534-1 Pass-thru Device. Requirements for the computer are as follows:

  • For KLINE reflashes, the Update Managers A & B softwares are only supported in Windows 2000, Windows XP Pro + SP3, and Windows 7 (32-bit) operating systems.
  • For CAN reflashes, the CAN PassThru software is supported in Windows 2000, Windows XP Pro + SP3, and Windows 7 (32-bit) operating systems.
  • For Windows 7 (32-bit), the CAN PassThru software and Update Manager A & B requires temporary adjustment of the User Account Control Settings (UAC) to enable software activation.
  • To change the UAC settings in Windows 7:
1. Open Control Panel.
2. Click on the User Accounts icon.
3. Click on the User Accounts icon. This is not the same icon clicked in the previous step. This icon will be smaller.
4. Click on Change User Account Control settings.
5. Remember your last setting for the slider bar and then move the slider thumb to Never notify.
6. Click OK to accept the changes and reboot the PC for changes to take effect.
7. After using the CAN PassThru software, return the UAC settings to your previous setting or set it to Default. Another reboot is required for changes to take effect.


  • 256 megabytes of RAM (at least 256 megabytes recommended)
  • An available serial port or USB connection.
  • An internet connection
  • Sufficient hard drive space to install Update Manager / Pass-Thru CAN and store re-flash files & other support files (40 megabyte minimum).

Some K-Line PCMs require a special Y-cable adapter to connect the 16 pin OBD-II data-link connector from the J2534-1 pass-thru device to both the Mitsubishi 12 or 13 pin proprietary connector & the on-board 16 pin data-link connector. This cable can be purchased through Bosch Automotive Service Solutions (Part number MIT47295). Refer to the Adapter Cable Chart to determine which vehicles require the adapter cable.

Detailed reflash procedures >


1998 − 2014 MODEL PCM SOFTWARE UPDATES (as of 11/14 − Database #N14081)
Read the vehicle’s PCM part number and ROM−ID with Update Manager A (may need MIT47295 adapter cable).

Review the chart below to determine if the latest ROM−ID is higher than the ROM−ID reported by Update Manager A.

Be sure to review the related TSB thoroughly before re−flashing any PCM. Some re−flashes require updated parts for a re−flash to be successful.

Use Update Manager B (and specified adapters/cables in the chart) to apply an updated flash file to the PCM.
