Hi,
Is the key still intact/in one piece? There is a chip inside the key that if damaged/missing will prevent fueling.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
yes the key is still intact
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks.
To rule out a possible security issue, can you please check to see if you have injector pulse (test light across the two pins of one of the injector connectors while cranking)?

will try that next thank you.
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
No problem, let me know if you have pulse there or not and we can proceed with the next step based on that result.
