How to reprogram your Mitsubishi Verada / Magna remote





I discovered that going swimming with your car keys in your pocket isn't a good idea. When the rust starts to oooze out of the remote control thingy it stops working. No problem I thought, just ring the local Mitsubishi dealer. I'm sure they were rubbing their hands together before I even rang. $70 to buy one remote and then another $95 to reprogram it. Geeez, but isn't Google a wonderful thing? Within a few minutes I had already reprogrammed it on my own. The actual reprogramming itself is done from the drivers seat, requires nothing other than your car key, takes about 5 seconds and they charge $95 for it !!!!!!!

Don't blame me if this makes toast come out of your CD player or something much worse! What you have to do is jump in the car and shut the doors. Put your key in the ignition then turn it to ON, back to ACC, back to ON, back to ACC and then back to ON again. The indicators should all flash. Now press any of the buttons on your remote. The indicators should flash again. Your done. I only have one remote, so I'm not sure what you do if you have more than one, but I'm sure you can work it out. Perhaps you press a button on all remotes before turning the ignition back to off, but I'm pretty sure that you have to reprogram them all at the same time otherwise your existing remotes will be snapped and only the new one will work. I also think that you can do up to four remotes for the one car but I haven't tried it.
