[For vehicles equipped with keyless operation system]

For information on operations for vehicles equipped with the keyless operation system, refer to “Keyless operation system: Electronic immobilizer (Anti-theft starting system)”.

[Except for vehicles equipped with keyless operation system] The electronic immobilizer is designed to significantly reduce the possibility of vehicle theft. The purpose of the system is to immobilize the vehicle if an invalid start is attempted. A valid start attempt can only be achieved by using a key “registered” to the immobilizer system.

• In the following cases, the vehicle may not be able to receive the registered NOTE

• In the following cases, the vehicle may not be able to receive the registered ID code from the registered key and the engine may not start.
• 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, we recommend you to contact your MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point.
