Having problems with your Mitsubishi Galant ?
The security light is on and wont start can i get and ignition switch with a key from a junk yard to start my car
The key has a radio transmitter in it that tells the computer it is the right key and also that a key is present, so that your car can't be hot wired. Replacing the switch won't solve anything since the key code is stored in the computer. The dealer can make new keys and program them to your car. Some locksmiths can do this to. Expect to pay around $150 to have a new key programmed to the vehicle. This is if you are lucky and it is the chip in the key that failed and not the transmitting system or computer.
