Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hey there, thanks for the question.
are you at the vehicle now?
Great, do you have a Key FOB?
Well it may not, just depends.
is the battery still installed?
and again, do you have a keyless remote? they are called a key FOB? for locking and unlocking the doors?
Yes, but did you have the key to ON position when the battery was connected?
look at the bottom of the dash by the steering column for an alarm bypass button or small flashing light.
gotcha, in that case you need to do two things.
first go ahead and connect the battery. When the alarm sounds shut the drivers door and manually unlock it with the key and it should disable.
if for some reason that does not work and the key FOB will not disable it by pressing unlock. Then disconnect the battery again and wait a few minutes. Turn the key to the ON position and reconnect the battery. the alarm should be off and you can start the vehicle.
The doors locking is certainly peculiar, the lights flashing is a common system of the alarm.
To have no issues prior to the battery install though and it not be the alarm would be concerning since headlights and locks are controlled by the etacs unit.
