2015 Mirage Dome Light
Insert Flathead Screwdriver
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 DE3175 LED bulb.

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

Pry Out Lens Cover
Old Bulb In Socket
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.

Pull Back Metal Tab
Old Bulb Removed
Gently pull back the left side metal electrical contact to release the old DE3175 light bulb from the socket.

Insert New DE3175
Test New Light Bulb
Install a new # DE3175 festoon style bulb in to the socket.

If you are installing an LED bulb and it doesn't work at first, try flipping it around in the socket.

Test the new light bulb by sliding the "On / Door / Off" switch to the "On" position.

Re-Insert Front Edge
Pop In Lens Cover
Line up the translucent plastic lens cover and re-insert the tabs on the front edge.

Gently pop in the rear edge of the lens cover.
