When you changed the lock cylinder you probably activated the security system. Your car doesn't recognize the new key so it thinks you're trying to steal it. Unfortunately you'll probably need a tow to the dealer so they can program the new key into the system. HTH. -Jim

I tried to find a DIY way to program key, but Jim~ as always ~is right. The Mitsubishi Galant is different than most and special tools are needed. like a high end OBD scanner
