Hi

I take it you mean it will not turn the steering lock ?

If so, try turning the steering wheel sharply to the left, and then to the right, whilst operating the ignition key to the start position.

I hope this is of assistance to you.
Let me know if this does not help.
Good Luck !
John.

How would I start a 2000 2.4 litter Mitsubishi triton glx using a non coded key


Hi Russell, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Russell, you cannot start a security installed vehicle with a none security key. If you have lost your key to the vehicle then here's what you can do. Take the last 8 of your VIN Number and your vehicle to the Mitsubishi Dealer and they can cut and program a new key to the security module. NOTE: Another way to do this is to have the dealer cut a new key for the vehicle and then call around to find a lock smith that has the ability to program the key to the vehicle. NOTE: I would check to see which way is cheaper. To Tow the vehicle OR have a lock smith come to you. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Hi try operating with the spare remote to lock & unlock the doors & try the spare key to start may be the immobilizer playing up if it starts with the spare key it could be the transponder in the key itself wanting re programing
