Mitsubishi Lancer Owners Manual
Electronic immobilizer (Anti-theft starting system)
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 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.
