Question about Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

My question is- my 2001 Mitsubishi Galant has the anti-theft system. The battery went down because it hasn't been driven in a couple of weeks. I can boost it off & drive it for just a mile or so & it just goes dead while I'm driving it. Is this part of the anti-theft system & if I put in the 4-digit code which I can get, will that stop this problem?

Usually if it is the anti theft system it should not start with a boost, I would suggest first check the basics have the altenator tested with a voltmeter the volts should read 13.5 to 14.5 if not you probbably have a bad altenator, loose belt, or bad or loose battery connections. Since the battery went completly dead I would suggest having it recharged and tested.

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.

My 2008 Mitsubishi Galant suddenly has no power at all. Brand new battery. Began with short beeps when key removed, then placed key in for a few seconds, all power restored properly until I tried to s


sound's as though the vehicle anti theft has kicked in ,was this directly after fitting battery or did the vehicle start and been driven and then this issue arose , if the latter then i'd get the alternator charge rate checked as may well have not recharged the battery when being driven and now the anti theft thinks as there is a drop in power the car is being stolen, contact a mitsubishi dealer for the reset procedure and then check the alternator is charging ok

2003 Saturn Vue with a identity anti theft system. Replaced my battery a few months ago. Couple weeks ago noticed a little difficulty starting up. Last week wouldn't start just clicking noise. Jumped...


Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >
Starter Voltage Drop
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.

Stereo wont come on


It's probably not a fuse problem. If you got a new battery or your battery went dead or was unhooked, that will make the Galant radio reset and quit working. You have to contact your dealer (or any Mitsubishi dealer) and get the radio code for that car from them. If they don't know you or have you on file as the buyer, you'll have to prove you're the owner. (It's an anti-theft device.) Then you put in the code they give you and the radio works!

the stereo may have connection with your anti theft device, drive your car to the dealer and they can reset the device for you at a minimal charge. this should resolve these issues. Good luck

2001 mitsubishi galant 2.4 p1610 no start condition


It looks like it is a problem with the anit-theft system. Code p1610 is for an Immobilizer System Malfunction, usually set because the wrong key code was picked up by the anti-theft system. The procedure for checking it says to use a spare key that has worked in the past and if that doesn't fix it, you'll either have to have a licensed locksmith with the ability to reprogram your car to your key come out, or take it into the dealership to have it reprogrammed. The most likely cause for this is that haveing no battery power for a while as you described allowed the programmed key information to be lost. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted be glad to help.
