Carry an extra key in your wallet or on a necklace. Hide one on the car in a wheel well or in a fake wire splice (wrap it in electrical tape). Every Mitsubishi I have ever owned I was able to unlock with a wire coat hanger. Just take off the inner skin of the door and figure out how the thieves do it or just carry a second key.

2006 jeep liberty wrong key was inserted now won't start but turns over any ideas on how to reprogram key for my car?

NOOOOOO! Very easy to solve!!!!!
1.) Lock the car with the original key + remote control.
2.) open the car with the original remote control.
3.) Sit into the car, close ALL doors and windows.
4. Put in the ORIGINAL keys into the ignition and turn it right, until the dasboard lights go on.
5. Wait 10-15 seconds.
6. Take out the keys.
7. Leave the car and lock it with the original remote control.
8. Wait a minute or so.
9. open the car w. the original remote control.
10. Start your car and viola! Will start like a charm.
At least it happened to me with my 2006 cherokee.

IF NOT there is another method, one of these 2 will work!

Try Inserting the correct key in the ignition at least 3 times. Don't turn the key, just insert it-let it sit for 5 seconds and then remove-do this 3-5 times, then insert the key and attempt to start again

Hope it helps, BTW, the anti-theft immobilizer was working.

Below a schematic drawing how the anti-theft immobilizer works, just to give more insight.

Key will not turn in door locks

Key may need to be replaced of may be bent. Might try having a locksmith make a new one. most times if you take them somewhere like walmart or other places if the key is wore then the replacment is not much better. a locksmith will do a much better job... Hey do you have a spare might work also. hope this helps and good luck.

Cant turn key in ignition

if the key will not turn in the ignition then there are a few things that could be the problem --
1. the cuts on the key are worn down and no longer raise the wafers in the lock itself to the right height to enable the lock to turn. -- if this is the case, stop by your local locksmith shop and have them read the key and try and cut you a factory key.
2. one of the wafers inside the lock has split or jammed -- if it is a jammed wafer you can try and squirt a small amount of teflon or silicone based lubrication into the key hole and cycle the key in and out a few times and this might free it up ( NOTE: only use a small amount of lube -- you are not trying to drown out the lock ).///// if it is a split wafer inside the lock then the lock will need to be removed and rebuilt or just replaced all together.
3. it could also be a jammed ignition gear -- if this has happened, you can try and wiggle and turn the steering wheel back and forth to try and un-jam it and then try and use your key -- also try to turn the key at the same time as you turn the wheel back and forth,, this might free it up.
4. try a different key ( one that might be newer / less used ) -- this again might line things up to the proper position.
if none of these tricks work then you will need to call a automotive locksmith and have them come out to the vehicle to repair the ignition lock.
lots of times when this kinda of thing happens - it is caused by having a lot of keys on your key ring and the weight of the keys and the constant moving back and forth while driving puts stress on the key and parts inside the lock,,, ( suggestion for the future would be to just have the key and the key fob on your car keychain ) ( have your work,home and other keys on a different ring from your car key ).
I hope this helps, as a locksmith for 18 years I have seen this problem several times a week. if you need anymore help - feel free to ask me and I will do my best to walk you through the steps.

Locked keys in 325

you will have to call a profesional locksmith who can make you a key for the door only to unlock it, i do auto lockouts for a living but we are unable to unlock them with standard tools for unlocking cars, I can pump open the door and hit the unlock switch but it will never unlock the door, the car alarm prevents this from doing so. Slim jims dont work on these also, nothing works, BMW actaullay requires us to tow them to the dealership whenever we get lockouts for BMW's. give the dealership your VIN number and they can send you another key for about $150, if you ca afford a BMW then u can afford $150 to get a new key.

I locked my keys to my 95 ford thunderbird in my trunk

No there is not, but there is an easier way. You take a door stop (yep the ol triangle ones) and a hammer and put the door stop along the top and near the corner of the door. Hammer carefully the door stop into the door jamb and use a coat hanger to get your keys/hit the lock/pull the handle. Not that ive had to do this a few times, but it seems easiest for me and saves the locksmith charge.
