Question about 1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT

1 Answer

My 3000gt starts for about 5 seconds and then shuts off. The alarm randomly went off tonight.. Could it be a security system? Or what other ideas do you guys have out there?

Security system? Mass air flow sensor? Relay? Fuel pump?

Hello Narisol,


Excerpt from the 2003 Owners Manual.


Passlock

Your vehicle is equipped with the Passlock theft-deterrent
system. Passlock is a passive theft-deterrent system.
Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder is turned with a valid key. If a correct key is not used or the ignition lock cylinder
is tampered with, the fuel system is disabled and the vehicle
will not start. During normal operation, he SECURITY light
will turn off approximately five seconds after the key is turned to
RUN. If the engine stalls and the SECURITY light flashes,
wait about 10 minutes until the light stops flashing before trying
to restart the engine. Remember to release the key from START as
soon as the engine starts. If the engine does not start after
three tries, the vehicle needs service. If the engine is running and the
SECURITY light comes on, you will be able to restart the engine
if you turn the engine off. However, your Passlock system is not
working properly and must be serviced by your dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by Passlock at this time. You may also want to
check the fuse. See Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-85.
See your dealer for service. In an emergency, call the M
Roadside Assistance Center. See Roadside Assistance Program on
page 7-5.


Excerpt from the 2003 Owners Manual.

Testing the Alarm The alarm can be tested by following these steps:
1.
From inside the vehicle, Iower the driver's window and open
the driver's door.
2.
Activate the system by locking the doors with the power door
lock switch while the door is open, or with the remote keyless entry transmitter.
3.
Get out of the vehicle, close the door and wait for the SECURITY light to go out.
4.
Then reach in through the window, unlock the door with the manual
door lock and open the door. This should set off the alarm. When
the alarm is set the power door unlock switch is not operational.
If the alarm does not sound when it should but the headlamps flash, check to see if the horn works. The horn fuse may be blown. To
replace the fuse, see Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-85.
If the alarm does not sound or the headlamps do not flash, the
vehicle should be serviced by your dealer.

My 1988 240 sel mercedes (well maintained) was given to me by my father (lives in Florida) without any remote (I don't know if it ever had one/ 1988) anyway, after a while the alarm would randomly sound...


First off, its a 420SEL, there is no 240SEL that year.
Remove the factory alarm.
1) remove the passenger side floormats 2) unscrew the 10mm nut securing the kick panel to the firewall. 3) locate the black box that says "becker autoradio" on it. 4) unplug both cable harnesses from the box 5) remove the box (optional)
Put the kick panel and rugs back and you are done! Should take 10 minutes.

I have a 98 jeep grand cherokee. i went to start it the other day and the alarm started goin off and it ran for a few seconds and then died. is there a way to disconnect the alarm so it will stay running...


If you use the original key to lock & unlock it from the tailgate and then try starting it, it should reset the system. Be aware that when it this begins to happen more often, it is usually an indication of the battery getting weak & losing the onboard memory for the security memory. If you are using an aftemarket key this may continue to shut down because the security system does not recognize an uncoded key.

Changed oil and cleaned battery cables.Started car up. Ran for 2 seconds security alarm went off car shut down.no power to fuel pump.Is there some way to reset the fuel pump


You need to reset the alarm system.That can be done with the remote entry key fob or by locking then unlocking the drivers door with the ignition key with all doors closed.This is for a factory alarm system.Also check the inertia switch,should be in the trunk,on the side with a push button top.Push button.If already down its not tripped.

Security light flashing and car won't start now


does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.
