So I set my 2019 outlander electronic park brake into service mode by following instructions off of YouTube and now it won’t come out of service mode. Brakes are done, the car goes but the parking brake service required light is on and beeping. How can I reset it?

Are you sure it went into service mode?

All that you need to do is operate the handbrake switch. This will put it back into operating mode.

Were the pistons hard to push back?

After i tried putting it in service mode I still couldn’t get the pistons to release so I disconnected the battery, hooked up a battery charger to the caliper and released it that way.

No. I reversed the motors and manually pressed the pistons in.

No. Now it says service required.

You will need to get the Fault code read, and see if they can activate " full release control -on" and then "full release control - off"

But i suspect you might have damaged the motors

That is why i am saying you need to get the codes read. It could be the potentiometer inside is confused, so activating full release control may work.

Same issue here. Anyone find the solution to this problem? I can't find an OBD2 scanner with EPB reset that supports Mitsubishi. I'm thinking I will have to bring my care to the dealer to fix it.
So, I brought it to the dealer and they told me the alarm was on because the brake pads were too low (I left the old ones in because I bought pads for manual park brake by accident). I went home and installed new rear brake pads and the same alarm is active. I just ordered the BlueDriver Bluetooth OBDII scanner to see if it will solve the problem. It's cheaper than going back to the dealer and I could return it if it doesn't solve the issue

A bluetooth device will not work. You need a bi directional tool to retract the pistons. These are more expensive than these cheap code readers
Thanks for replying, I was able to cancel my order before it shipped. I'm looking for a tool that has that function, but it's difficult. The MUT3 tool seems dated and confusing to use. I'd pay a chunk of change for something rather than paying $140/hr for service at the dealer. If you have any suggestions I would really appreciate it!

So I brought the car back in instead of buying a scanner. They scanned the car for codes, saw the rear brakes had malfunctioned and took a closer look at the brakes. They found that the piston boot wasn't on properly, so after they adjusted it and put everything back together, they cleared the code and ran an actuator test. EPB wasn't broke thankfully and the cars back to normal.

I reached out to a couple brands of scanners and the only company that got back to me with a recommendation was Autel. They recommended the MS906 ($1000+ on amazon) if anyone is curious.

How much did they charge you to do the job? Was it at the dealer or another workshop?
