• When the key contacts a key ring or other metallic or magnetic object. (Type A) • When the key grip contacts metal of another key (Type B) • When the key contacts or is close to other immobilizing keys (including keys of other vehicles). (Type C) In cases like these, remove the object or additional key from the vehicle key. Then try again to start the engine.

If the engine does not start, contact an authorized MITSUBISHI MOTORS dealer.
