Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
Replace the ignition switch...
But! If you are turning the key and you are not getting anything from the starter, then replace the starter.
Another words, if you are turning the key and there is NO noise at all coming from the starter, then replace the ignition switch.
If there is SOME noise/clicking or anything, replace the starter.

You need to check and see if the security light is on or flashing.If it is then the security system is what is keeping the vehicle from starting.You need to get the codes from the Theft Deterrent module and from there it will need to be diagnosed to find the problem.The Theft Deterrent module and the PCM is what allow power to the starter once it sees that the correct key has been used.If you have a worn out key this could cause it not to work.So if you have a second key you can try that first.If the light is not on or flashing then you have to check the crank fuse on the left side of the instrument panel.Let me know what you find out.I`ll be glad to help you out with any codes and tell you what they are.Good luck.

It would be hard to guess but a simple diagnostic would be to use a 12v test light and see if the starter solenoid recieves a 12 v signal while turning the key. If it lights, the starter should turn over. This also gives you the oportunity to check and verify all electrical connections at the starter including the large orange fusible link wire at the large battery terminal.
