Q: I lost my only car key. How can I get a replacement?

asked by on October 09, 2016

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante. I have lost the car key. It is programable? Locksmith said something about a key code on passenger side door. Nothing there. Any possibility of key code with my VIN?

My car has 179000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi, thanks for writing in. I would contact your local Mitsubishi dealer. They should be able to make you a key based off of your VIN number. Sometimes emailing is more efficient than trying to set an appointment. Try going to Mitsubishi’s website and find their contact us page. You should be able to send them a message or request services (new key) online. Good luck!

Hi there. The best way to pinpoint any coolant leak is to complete a pressure test of the system. Eric the Car Guy on YouTube.com has a pretty good video on how this is done.
