I changed the ignition lock cylinder in my 2001 galant es
It will turn over now but will not crank,also there is a green light with a key in it coming on. Is there a way to fix this without taking to a dealer?
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
a good locksmith should be able to do it on site id give them a call
I TOOK THE OLD KEY TAPED IT TO THE KEY READER .HID IT UNDER THE DASH .NOW THE CAR CRANKS AND RUNS GREAT .
Oh my God, slumlord, that's hilarious!! I never heard of or even thought of doing that!! Awesome. Thanks for letting us know. -Jim
hope this helps someone else solve their problem.its free no dealer or locksmith needed just some duct tape and a screw driver.lol
nice it worked for ya ? not that I was really doubting it would
