Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

Im afraid the short answer here is no. The immobilser on your Mitsubishi is integrated into the engine management computer - Its not just a case of cutting wires and crossing them etc ect as some people would have you believe Im afraid..

The best , cheapest and quickest way forward for you would be to contact a local Mobile Auto locksmith who has the equipment on board to be able to cut you a key using the lock as a template - and then code you the key to the car..

Typical costs are around the 100+£ mark - but please don't quote me on that exactly - its just a ball -park figure and you should ask for quotes before authorizing a call out & work.

That would be quicker , cheaper etc than using a dealer though so I would recommend using yell.com to locate as above in your locale...

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
