The lighter will automatically return to its original position with a “click” when ready. Pull it out for use.

After use, insert the lighter to its original position in the socket.

NOTE

Do not leave the cigarette lighter removed from its socket, because the socket might become clogged by foreign material and be short-circuited.

CAUTION

(1) Do not touch heating element or lighter housing, hold the knob only as burns may occur.
(2) Do not allow children to operate or play with the cigarette lighter as burns may occur.
(3) Something is wrong with the cigarette lighter if it does not pop back out within approximately 30 seconds of being pushed in.
Leaving the cigarette lighter pushed in for an extended period could cause fire. If it does not pop out by itself, pull it out and have the problem corrected at an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer.
(4) Do not leave the cigarette lighter pushed in or insert the cigarette lighter from another vehicle. Otherwise, the lighter may overheat and cause fire.
(5) It is recommended that only the lighter be inserted in its socket. Use of “plug-in” type accessories may damage the socket and result in poor retention of the lighter.
(6) When the cigarette lighter socket is used as a power source for an electric appliance, be sure that the electric appliance operates at 12 V and has an electric capacity of 120 W or less. In addition, long use of the electric appliance without running the engine may run down the battery.
