Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant
I accidently put reg key in ignition.it started then died.now even with chip key,nothing?all dash/headlights ok.help.
Find a strip of white pasteboard (like the form used in the collar of a new shirt. Cut it in the shape of the chip key from the handle to the beginning of the key pin cuts (don't make it any longer than this; you don't want to grind pasteboard into the lock mechanism). Slide it into the lock several times to clean off any gunk that might have been deposited on the chip contacts. Clean both sides of the chip on the key with a paper towel or cotton swab dampened with rubbing alcohol, then dry it.
If it still doesn't work, you may have bent the contacts in the lock, and it needs to be taken apart for repair.

1st Remove Battery cable from Battery because the only time the air bags will deploy is when the key is in the ignition. I have tilt steering and when I put the steering wheel in the up most position. I came right out. But now it seems to stick more lately.
