Question about Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

I have a mitsubishi 2002 galant, I had a non-transponder key made for it just to open the door in case of lockouts. Twice after about 80 tiimes using it, the horn and light alarm went off. What triggered that? How can I prevent it? It doesn't happen when unlocking the door, it happens after the key is removed and after several minutes of being in the car.

You can by transponder keys cheaply on line. Some hardware stores will cut them from free or a buck or two and you can program them yourself (up to eight keys) if you have the two original keys to put in the lock first. My question is why bother with the other key if it is just giving you problems.

I am going to buy a used 2002 Galant which only has one ignition key. Can a spare ignition key be purchased? If so, from where and how much would it cost? The key I am told has a computer chip so a...

Keys are available outwith the Mitsubishi dealer. Keys supplied will have a transponder chip in them but this will need to be coded into the car, which, if the key supplier cannot code, will then need to go to a Mitsubishi dealer. Probably easier going direct to the dealer

I had a transponder key cut for my 02 galant but it wont stay started. Is there any onboard programming options?

if you had this key cut at the local hardware store, all it is good for is unlocking the doors. you need a key cut at the dealer to work with your security system interlock, otherwise this is the problem you will have.

if this key was cut at the dealer and doesnt work, go back, because something went wrong with the programming.

good luck!

If you can unlock it with the key,and not the remote, then it sounds like the lock actuator is not working in that door.In order to check it, the door panel has to come off.
