The Mitsubishi Galant comes with a remote entry key. If you lose the remote key, you will need to program a new key to work with your vehicle. Dealers might charge to do this for you. To save money, consider programming the key yourself.

Step 1

Open the car's data port located under the dashboard on the driver's side.

Step 2

Insert the key into the ignition.

Step 3

Connect data port one and four with a jumper wire. Data port one is the port in the top-left corner. Data port four is the fourth port on the top row. Ensure you connect the right ports.

Step 4

Press the car's "Hazard" button six times within 10 seconds of connecting the data ports with a jumper wire. The car doors should lock and then unlock.

Step 5

Press the "Lock" button on the remote within 10 seconds. The car locks will cycle again indicating success.

Step 6

Remove the jumper wire and take the key out of the ignition.
