If you require a transponder in order to start the vehicle, it could be a few problems, could be the immobilizer transponder fob, or the immobilizer antenna, or even the immobilizer brain or relay. Few steps to tell, if the LED light doesn't go out for the immobilizer its the transponder fob. If the light does go out then it could be the antenna, brain or relay. These are the problem areas that can be diagnosed.

Get the alarm removed and have a decent brand fitted, autowatch are pretty poor, Cobra are a good brand, i had a company called Car-tel fit mine (freephone 0808 118 1545) and they give a lifetime guarantee on Cobra alarm/immobilisers, there's also the slim chance its not alarm related, have the old one took off and leave it a couple of weeks before you have the new one fitted just in case its a problem with the car!

How can i disable the immobiliser on my fto. The key fob has broken and it wont let me start the engine :-(


Is the alarm / immobilizer factory or aftermarket? If it's aftermarket you will either have to purchase and program a new key fob or completely remove the system and reconnect which ever cuts were made in the wiring.

Headlight lens laquer on my mitsubishi fto is flaking can this be repaired or does the lens just clip off to fit a replacement


I have fixed this on my own FTO. I used wet&dry sandpaper, followeed by rubbing compound, followed by polish. it's important to polish the light every month afterwards to maintain the shine.
I heard that Brasso brass cleaner is good for this too, but I've never tried it myself. There is a full guide on how to repair peeling headlights in the knowledgebase on www.fto-ireland.com

Mitsubishi fto 1995 import gpx battery light keeps coming on


sounds like you have a short somewhere. without seeeing the car, i would suggest going to an auto electrician, not a "local garage" and god forbid... to mitsubishi (unless your loaded that is).

my gut feeling would be the alternator belt (aux belt) is getting old and worn and is slipping, causing a power fluctuation, but again, without seeing it, i cant diagnose.

good luck with it, fto's are fantastic so do what you can
