BatteryBattery  - Maintenance - Mitsubishi Carisma Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Carisma

The condition of the battery is very important for quick starting of the engine and proper functioning of the vehicle’s electrical system. Regular inspection and care are especially important in cold weather.

NOTE

(1) After replacing the battery, the electronic control system data for the engine, automatic transmission, etc., will be erased. As a result, the engine speed may become unstable and shift shocks may occur.
If the engine speed become unstable, initial engine adjustments will need to be performed.
Refer to the section “What to do if the engine speed becomes unstable after the battery is replaced:” on page 8–22. Shift shocks will become smoother after several changes in speed.
(2) Memory data for settings made by the user may be erased when the battery is replaced. If this happens, establish the settings again using the relevant procedures.
