Mitsubishi Lancer Owners Manual
To remove the key
For vehicles equipped with a M/T, when removing the key, push the key in at the “ACC” position and keep it depressed until it is turned to the “LOCK” position, and remove it.
For vehicles with CVT or Twin Clutch SST, when removing the key, first set the selector lever (CVT) or gearshift lever (Twin Clutch SST) to the “P” (PARK) position, and then turn the key to the “LOCK” position and remove it.
► Do not remove the ignition key from the ignition switch while driving. The
steering wheel will be locked, causing loss of control.
► If the engine is stopped while driving, the brake servomechanism will cease to function and braking efficiency will deteriorate.
Also, the power steering system will not function and it will require greater manual effort to operate the steering.
► Do not leave the key in the “ON” position for a long time when the engine is not running, doing so will cause the battery to be discharged.
► Do not turn the key to the “START” position when the engine is running, doing so could damage the starter motor.
