ALARM

2000 Mitsubishi Shogun

Electrical problem
2000 Mitsubishi Shogun Four Wheel Drive Manual 125000 miles

Central locking fob shows light when button pressed, but alarm is not turned off & doors do not unlock. Immobiliser light continues to flash inside car. On unlocking the car with the key the alarm goes off & lights flash. These will not stop. The emergency alarm 'key' does not turn the alarm off. As I'm driving the alarm continues to sound & lights keep flashing. The imobiliser light on the steering column continues to flash. When the car is locked with the key (the remote does not activate anything) the alarm stops after 30 -40 seconds. I have 2 other key fobs & neither of them deactivate the alarm or lock/unlock the doors, even though the led flashes when the button is clicked. The car's battery is less than 2 years old & is fine.
