Question about Mitsubishi Mirage

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage that was in an accident and suffered minor front end damage. Now the ignition key will not return to the off position and therefore the steering wheel won't lock and I can't get the key out.

Did the airbag deploy? I had the same issue with my 1995 Chrysler when it was struck head-on and the airbags deployed. I think it is a feature to make sure that repairs are made correctly.

If you had it repaired, take it back to the repair shop.

This could be different programming of the new ECU. You might also need to get it tuned with the new ECU. It could have changed the ignition timing.

Has this car even been in an accident where the airbags deployed? I had this occur on my Chrysler after an accident, so it may be a feature to insure that you get it repaired properly. In my case the car was totaled, so no repair was made.

How to get my key out of the ignition


Please try this:

Turn on the engine and place gear in Neutral, engage the e-brake, then switch off the engine.
Try to move the key into the 'LOCK' position. With the common ignition assembly placed, this should not be possible.

From this point, place the gear into park and turn ignition towards the 'LOCK' position (there may be a button, or the need to push the key further into the keyhole). You should get the key into the 'LOCK' position and allow you to pull it out.

Let me know if this works and provide feedback. Thanks!
