This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016) Mitsubishi Mirage in changing a dead battery in the key fob remote control for the keyless entry system.

Owners of other Mitsubishi vehicles such as the Lancer, Outlander, Galant, Montero, Eclipse, 3000GT, Endeavor, Raider, Diamante, Attrage, Carisma, Colt, Grandis, Magna, Pajero, Space Star and the revised 2017 Mirage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement festoon or "fuse" style bulb is part number DE3175 which is available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

You can also use a brighter LED bulb.

The only tool needed to access and replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or use a plastic automotive pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch at the rear edge of the lens cover.

Gently pry out the lens cover and set it aside in a safe place.
