    i've had a look at my car at w/shop and there is only 1 key
    it has the remote central locking on it.
    where would i buy another?
    is it possible to buy a replacement and program it to the car.
    i think the gto that i had you could switch the central locking module to program mode
    so it would program the new key.
    anybody know david

    Yes - the Galants use the same generic Mitsubishi key as many of the local models from memory.

    Another good option is an immobiliser/alarm with the central locking built in - kill two birds with one stone.

    I'm not sure about keys that have the button on them for remote locking, but you should be able to get normal keys cut anywhere!

    there $260nz unprogrammed...
    special order item from japan.

    better to spend the extra cash on an alarm with central locking...

    there are two types, a pre and a post facelift key,

    the prefacelift is a single buttom lock/unlock,
    the facelift has seperate lock unlock buttons.

    yep he's right, the facelift ones have two buttons :) $260 is too much though, that damned near buys a full alarm system.

    LOL yep bunnings ftw. and surely you would be considering a car alarm for it anyways, as chef said, get it integrated with the central locking, thats my plan

    I got immobliser with central locking remote which bypassed the factory one in the key so now can just get ordinary key cut for about $10 or what ever it normally cost. I think immobliser cost about $150.
