2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: UltraSonic Alarm
October 13, 2010
See those things up in the overhead console area? At first I thought they were Bluetooth/Navi mikes. But there are three of them, and one is forward facing. Huh. Perhaps they're cameras that allow you to Skype with the vehicle preceding you.
I broke out the book for some RTFM and found nothing. So I rang up the Mitsu guy who told me they're actually mikes for the Ultra-Sonic Premium Security Alarm System with motion sensor. He said the system, which can detect interior noises even from movement, is so sensitive his dog used to set it off all the time.
So if you were to return to your previously unoccupied Outlander and the alarm suddenly went off, perhaps you should either run or bust out the 45.
