Mitsubishi Lancer Owners Manual
Safety mechanism (driver’s door window only)
If a hand or head is trapped in the closing window, it will lower automatically.
Nonetheless, make sure that nobody puts their head or hand out of the window when closing the driver’s door window.
The lowered window will become operational after a few seconds.
► If the safety mechanism is activated three or more times successively, the safety mechanism will be temporarily cancelled.
If a hand or head got trapped, a serious injury could result.
► The safety mechanism is cancelled just before the window is fully closed.
This allows the window to close completely.
Therefore be especially careful that no fingers are trapped in the window.
► The safety mechanism is deactivated while the switch is pulled up. Therefore be especially careful that fingers are not trapped in the door window opening.
► The safety mechanism can be activated if the driving conditions or other circumstances
cause the driver’s door window to be subjected to a physical shock similar to that
caused by a trapped hand or head.
► If the safety mechanism is activated three or more times in a row, the safety mechanism will be cancelled and the door window will not close correctly.
In such a case, the following procedure should be implemented to rectify this situation.
If the window is open, repeatedly raise the driver’s door window switch until the window has been fully closed. Following this, release the switch, raise the switch once again and hold it in this condition for at least 1 second, then release it. You should now be able to operate the driver’s door window in the normal fashion.
