We lost the keys to our 2004 Mitsubishi galant how can we bypass the theft lock sensor to crank our car?

Go to a Dealership with your registration, log book, VIN Number. They will make you a key.

Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
Want to bypass your vehicle security system? The short answer is you can't!

All modern cars have alarms and immobilizers. There is a chip in the key and a chip in the ignition lock. If both are present, the ECM (engine control module) releases power to the ignition circuit. When you turn the key, the starter spins the engine and you get a spark. If any one of those three items are not in the chain, you get the engine to turn, but no spark. There is no way to beat the system. You have to fix what is wrong, not find a way around it.

The immobilizer is in place to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

I ran out of gas and now my car wont start. Tried turning the key several time and no luck

ON your fuel rail under your hood is a pressure release valve. It looks like your tire inflation valve. It may have a black cap. remove cap, turn on key, then turn off. press the valve to release the fuel pressure. do this a few time and it will bleed your system off excess air. sounds like you have a vapor lock.

If you can grab the front of the a/c. Not the pulley, but the clutch plate that drives the compressor. You should be able to turn it by hand in either direction. If you can't then the compressor is locked up. This is the reason the car dies

I have a 2004 Mitsubishi Galant. About five times now when I am turning from one street onto another street the battery light comes on and the steering wheel locks up. I have to stop the car, turn it...

Check your engine belts to see if they are loose or need replaced. You could have a pulley or tensioner locking up. get that looked at asap, the belt will eventually come off and leave you stranded.

Try turning your steering wheel while turning the key. Sometimes the wheel lock will prevent the key from turning.
