Haw do i bypass a Mitsubishi Galant Immobili. systume on my car

If you put Mitsubishi Galant Immobilizer in your browser search bar, there are many forums dealing with this issue. I checked a few of them, and it would appear there is no real means to permanently bypass this anti-theft system. It all involves re-programming computers and such.

How to bypass immoblizer and theft system on 2000 isuzi rodeo

Have you verified the timing belt isn't broken? It's getting fuel?
Have you recently purchased a new ignition key, or did the battery go dead on your fob? Could be fuel pump, or even a fuse.
Start the cheapest....Check all fuses, under the dash and the hood. Listen for the fuel pum to buzz when key is turned on.

try with the antitheft bypass.
the problem seems to be the door switches which are not working giving fasle alarm to anti theft device. use contact cleaners on the door switch with the cabin light active on door open. you may then evaluate wether working or not. check all the doors one by one

When anti theft light is blinking the car wont start. Can you bypass the anti theft device

On a 2003 Chevy Maibu the theft system light comes on and blinks when the system is triggered. The car will not start and the fuel pump cuts out. You must turn key to on and have all doors closed. Keep the key to on for 10 mins til theft light turns solid and then disappears. Then turn key to start and it should fire up.

Ignition problems

You have an issue with the mechanism that operates the iginition switch down low on the top of the column, this is the electrical switch, you must pull the column apart and see what is broken, but be warned it is a really hard job unless you have allot of patience and time don't do it, have a Ford shop fix it or locate a used column on the internet, ebay has these kinds of parts cheap, I got a good used column for my 84 Corvette for $100 shipped to my door. Good luck.
