swapping out the ignition in...
How difficult is it, or what would be the process in swapping out the ignition in a 2007 eclipse? I was only given one key when purchased and have since lost said key. Is this something I can do or does it need to go to mitsubishi? There are chips in those keys I believe.

Replacement of ignition lock is not very difficult but bhe ignition lock and keys will need to be programmed to the vehicle's ecm after replacement. For that you will have to take it to the dealer or call an automobile lock smith.

I will need two two new keys, cut to new ignition then programmed to ecm? What about getting an ignition and key from a wrecker? Same thing, will need to be programmed to ecm?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
what about the old key, would it still disable the factory anti theft if it were found and used to unlock the drivers door?
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

Either way programming will be required. It will be cheaper to get new keys made and programmed with the existing ignition.

If you leave the existinng ignition the old key should still work.

Is it possible to delete old key from being able to operate factory alarm? Probably not because of the door unlock/disable alarm feature correct?
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

Correct.
