1998 Mitsubishi Montero starting


Electrical problem
1998 Mitsubishi Montero 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 140, 00 miles

i have seen this question on your site quite a bit but here goes again. Perodically I get in my car (suv) and the alarm is on and it wont start. I have tried dissconnting bat. Various unlocking with key in door. Manualing unlocking, removing fuse. Leaving key on for half hour. Jumping, holding my mouth at differant angles ( joking). Pushing ( what dealer sai ) led light.I have tried so many things it aint funny. Any suggestions? Is there a way to just bypass this or is there a transponder in key that may have gone bad. I get all lights on dash. And even tried putting it in nuetral ( seems like I remember something in the old days about neutral switch going bad ).I would be glad to donate to your site. Might as well i've donated to 3 others just to have them all tell me to try what I allready have. Those sites must be puter generated or maned by someone who cant read, because when I say I tried something they respond back with an anwser that tells me to try exactly what I said I tried.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello and thanks for donating

Yes, there is a chip inside of your vehicle's key. It is a possibility that the chip has failed. Do you happen to have a spare key with chip at end as well? If so, definitely would want to try that out first. If this doesn't help then you could also try the following steps, this will rule out whether the keyless entry system is at fault..
