Re: Imiev keyless entry

There is an immobiliser chip in the plain key as well, it's just embedded in the plastic. It is read by a key reader around the ign barrel. It doesn't require a battery, when the key is near the barrel it's wirelessly powered and read by the car. The remote locking is programmed in on the 433mhz ra...

Re: Imiev keyless entry

You should be able to pair a second hand key but obviously the shaft won't turn in the barrel and the immobiliser won't disarm. The cars immobiliser is a completely separate chip in the key to the remote. The remote purely does the central locking shopping.jpeg The black tic-tac like bit is a proxi...

Re: Imiev keyless entry

Hi all, I'm am a new owner of a 2012 Imiev. Looking in the manual I see that they have keyless entry. Mine came with only a key for the door. Was keyless entry an option or standard? I asked the mitsubishi dealer about a key and the price was high - $500. My googling indicates that it might be the ...

Re: Imiev keyless entry

To give a reply to myself because I think it needs one, I have found the 2nd key for the imiev and it works just like the main key, just not with buttons to lock and unlock the car. Thank you for your time. Also, I know about the potential to not realise you have to turn the key as though hitting th...

Hi I have a 2012 imiev. I use the key as shown on the right with the door open/close buttons you see in the middle of the key. This is not keyless entry. The other key (pretty sure I have it somewhere) is the minimal key you see on the left. Because I haven't used anything other than the main (one o...

Hi Tracey, Yes, just wait for a letter from Mitsubishi asking you to take your imiev to the nearest dealer and you then call or turn up and arrange a suitable day for the exchange pump to be fitted.
