Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
Want to bypass your vehicle security system? The short answer is you can't!

All modern cars have alarms and immobilizers. There is a chip in the key and a chip in the ignition lock. If both are present, the ECM (engine control module) releases power to the ignition circuit. When you turn the key, the starter spins the engine and you get a spark. If any one of those three items are not in the chain, you get the engine to turn, but no spark. There is no way to beat the system. You have to fix what is wrong, not find a way around it.

The immobilizer is in place to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

Save some time. Your stereo does not need to know when the parking brake is on. Just leave the wire disconnected.

indications that you have not got it right and now there are more bent valves

The screeching noise is most likely the alternator belt slipping. The higher RPM suggests that alternator may have failed. There is a second belt for the AC. If the alternator belt is self destructing, be aware that it runs the water pump as well, and the engine may overheat. Have the engine checked ASAP.

Might be a bad ignition switch or wiring. May need to check both. Do you have any codes in the ECM ?

2001 Mitsubishi... | Answered on Jun 24, 2017 | 520 views

Things to check are the clutch safety switch and the start relay. Use a volt/ohmmeter to interrogate the relay socket. From there, you can see if the signal is getting past the clutch switch. You can also start the car from the relay socket, if the downstream circuit is good. Make sure the car is in neutral before getting into the relay socket.
