SOURCE: Key stuck in the ignition

Well the radio code is an anti-theft issue. you have to take it to the dealership and they get your VIN number and they will retrieve the serial number to your radio. With that they can look up your code. It will cost at least $75 dollars.

Make sure they connect it back up correctly because then if you live in climates that reach under 20 degrees your radio will shut off. or when hit a bump in the winter your radio will shut off and you have to enter the code everytime it goes off.

I have an '01 montero sport XLS. Battery died and I had to experience this the hard way.

SOURCE: what can it be

I have both a Stealth, and a 3000GT, so I guess you could say that know a bit about the platform. this sounds like one of three possible things.

  • Starter
  • Starter relay (in that funny shaped box behind the passenger side headlight)
  • "click click start" or maybe loose trigger wire at the starter
If you know anyone with a 3000, try to borrow their starter relay, it is about a 10 second swap, and you will know very quickly if it is the problem.

If the starter solenoid isn't even clicking, I am leaning heavily towards either a completely disconnected trigger wire, or a bad starter. If it is clicking, then it is most likely click click start

click click start occurs because Mitsu, in their infinite wisdom put a wire to the starter (the trigger wire) which was BARELY sized large enough to carry enough current to activate the solenoid on the starter, over time, and corrosion, the wire becomes too thin to carry enough current, so it does not fully engage the solenoid... the solution is to install a relay at the starter so the trigger wire closes the circuit in the relay from the hot power side of the relay to the trigger. The hot power side of the relay is ALWAYS on, and the wire is big enough to carry enough amperage. Thats the way I did it, you can also put the relay up by the battery, here are instructions for doing it this way, personally, I like the relay down tie-wrapped to the starter myself.

SOURCE: WHAT IS A IGNITION SWITCH?

Ignition switch is the one you want. It contains the "contacts" that have separated from the housing.

The cylinder switch is only the key part and not the electrical contacts part.

SOURCE: 100A battery fuse blown?

They more than likely shorted out your 100a link fuse by grounding out your alt cable while replacing it. Sounds like they didn't disconnect the battery before hand. Your car has an idle program which it re-learns every time you lose power, or in your case, turn off the switch. You need to replace this fuse or your car will not charge.

When i try to start my car nothing comes on, no lights fuel pump and wont start


It almost sounds as if you had some sort of security system in the car that disables the ignition and prevents the car from starting. How do you know that you have power to the starter? Does the engine actually turn over? If that is the case, you might have a bad wire connection from the starter to the main power supply.

Check battery connections and cables. Ground may be broken. Remove cables and clean battery posts then reconnect cables.
Check ignition switch, replace as needed.

No power when i turn the key


Sounds like a bad ignition switch or a bad main electrical connection between the battery and the switch. Check all the battery connections and grounds for clean tight connections. Check for power going to the switch.

Turning ignition key there is silence....battery is ok as lights, radio come on strong. I keep trying, turning the key and moving gear shift et...and maybe it finally connects and engin fires and starts...


When this happens and the key is in the Ignition position, do the dash lights, etc come on? Could be the ignition switch is bad, and this is and easy way to tell. If the ignition is on and when we go to START, nothing happens, I would replace the starter/solenoid next.
