Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

i have a 1996 grand caravan, and i have the problem of alarm going off too. I also do not have a keychain to turn it off. All you have to do is unlock the driver door or passenger door with a regular key, and that stops the alarm.

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function

Connect battery>>>>try unlocking the vehicle from the inside (door closed), using the power un/lock button. Make sure the key is set to the "on" position. Most of the time this works. If this doesnt work, try using the key to lock and unlock the door through the key hole. Hopefully this helps!!
