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 do I replace my ignition switch on a 2001 mitisisubi mirage?


You may have to strip the steering column which would also mean removal of the steering wheel. Not a great job, especially with the air bag. I would suggest getting a Dealer to do it. The ignition switch / lock will likely have security screws in it as well.

Nope the tumblers in the ignition cylender are worn and bent causing the key to be stuck. Ask any locksmith and they will agree
replace it with new lock cylinder

99 mitsubishi mirage just died as i was driveing. now wont crank, sounds like timing is off. Any suggestions


If the car dies like you flipped a killswitch and wont even try to crank the motor I would definitely lean toward the ignition switch in the steering column is fried. Once it shorts out the car dies and wont crank.
