The electronic immobilizer has been 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 (subject to certain conditions) using a keyless operation system “registered” to the immobilizer system.

All of the keys provided with your new vehicle have been programmed into the vehicle’s electronics.

Refer to “Keyless operation system: Ignition switch” on pages 1-11 and 1-18.

► If you lose one of the keyless operation keys, contact a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Note

► If you lose one of the keyless operation keys, contact a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point as soon as possible.

To obtain a replacement or extra spare key, take your vehicle and all remaining keys to your MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point. All the keys have to be re-registered in the immobilizer computer unit.

The immobilizer can register up to 4 different keys.
