We have a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant that we replaced a damaged

Customer Question

We have a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant that we replaced a damaged ignition cylinder with one from the junkyard, we also cannot get the car to start, there is no spark with the spark plugs and we are not sure why it is not getting power to the spark plugs. We were told we need to reprogram the key and that will fix all of the issues, but we are not sure if that would be the correct solution in this case. We ran a dx and the code P0513 came up which has to do with the immobilizer, would this be the reason why the spark plugs are not firing?

What is the question that you nedd all i can see is what would cause no spark and i have answered this

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Does your answer coincide with the dx code which is what we are referring to, we want to know if the dx code P0513 would also cause the spark plugs to not fire, since we already know that it stands for immobilization, or is the spark plug issue a separate one?
Expert:  Kevin replied 2 months ago.

Yes this code corresponds with the key and the no spark .the imobilliser works by removing spark to prvent starting .if you programme key spark will return
