    If you are talking about the emergency key inside the FAST remote that only unlocks the door in case of a dead battery. That is just a standard key that could be duplicated but has nothing to do with starting the car. The FAST system is completely transponder dependent and operation of the car is “keyless”. Only a dealer can program the system to recognize additional transponders “keys” to unlock, lock and start the car. The standard system which uses a physical key to start the car also has a transponder in them but you can program additional keys (with transponders in them) provided you have both OEM keys. The procedure is outlined in the owner’s manual.

    I see. So the programmers that you can buy are only applicable for key fobs that are for non-keyless systems, correct?

    I think the MUT-III programmer made by Bosch would do this for you.

Maybe buy a spare RF key and the software needed to achieve this as long as it's a cheaper alternative?
    I am going to ask for clarification, because I feel this thread has gone in different directions. Using my owner’s manual for the Mirage in the U.S., Mitsubishi identifies 3 types of keys.

    Type 1
    1st key with electronic immobilizer
    2nd key with electronic immobilizer
    Key number plate

    The type 1 option has no remotes to open/lock the doors of your Mirage. The electronic immobilizer is strictly an anti-theft device embedded in the key. I don’t think the type 1 option is used in the U.S., because I have a base model Mirage that has the type 2 keys.

    Type 2
    1st key with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system
    2nd key with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system
    key number plate

    My 2017 Mirage ES (base model) came with two of these type 2 keys.

    Type 3
    1st F.A.S.T.-key with with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system
    2nd F.A.S.T.-key with with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system
    one emergency key is inserted in each of the F.A.S.T.-keys
    key number plate

    Your original question makes it seem like you were given one type 2 key & one type 1 key. You lost your one type 2 key, and you are now using your one type 1 key. Thus, you don’t have the ability to open/lock your doors with a remote. Is this correct?


    In the U.S., I don’t think a type 1 key even exists. You are either given two type 2 or two type 3 keys.

    According to the owner’s manual in the U.S., I could make up to 8 extra keys (provided I have the two originals). I assume those 8 extra keys would be like the type 1 keys. Let’s say I cut & programmed 5 extra keys for family members. They could unlock the car manually with these keys & drive off with the car. My guess is the keyless entry is a separate issue that can only be taken care of by the dealer.

    Your owner’s manual & keys may be different than ours. I am just trying to clarify all this. Your original question may have nothing to do with the F.A.S.T.-key.

    Sadly, it takes over 20 pages in the owner’s manual to explain the variety of key options for this car. I find that rather silly.

    Type 1 & 2 keys can manually unlock the driver's door. A type 3 emergency key unlocks the passenger door.

    Please clarify your issue for us! In the end, the dealer may be your only option.
