Put the battery cables back on shut the doors and lock the drivers door with the key then unlock it with the key. This will shut the alarm off it it goes off and may get the car out of the lockdown mode it seems that it is currently in. If that does not work you may try and call your local Mitsubishi dealer and ask one of the guys in the service or parts dept if the car has a lock down mode and what procedure has to be done to unlock it, mor than likley the will tell you and you wont have to spend a dime. This is all regarding the factory alarm however.

My guess is it has something to do with the anti theft security system. This is the system that has to do with that little black chip in the shaft of you key. Is the SECURITY light lit up on the dash when you put the key in? If you see it at all, this is your problem. Check this link for info and answers to the problem.

find the alarm box to adjust the sensitivity 9 times out of 10 time the alarm box is located on the opposite side of the engine away from the battery. but if it's a factory alarm you can call the dealer for the location better yet check the owner manual for the location.

Okay you may want to check to see if the sensor on door lock cylinder hasn't fallen off from the lock itself. Pull of the door panels and check the wires at the door lock cylinder. Hope this helps.

The key can't access the alarm and the door only opens manually. Turn the key in the ignition and nothing happens.

Try using the key in the rear hatch to disarm the alarm. That should at least get it started.
