Well...that stinks but it's not hopeless. If you still had the original "damaged" sensor that was in that wheel, you could have cloned a replacement and installed it...and you wouldn't have to mess with pairing it to the car. That's the easiest way to handle a replacement sensor in these cars. Now that you have a new TPMS sensor with a new ID number, you need to get that number into the car's computer...which isn't usually easy with a Mirage.

I don't know this for sure, but once the TPMS computer in these cars has a flashing TPMS light to indicate a system problem (like a dead sensor), I think it can get so jacked up after a while that only a really good scan tool can clear out the TPMS error codes and perform the relearn.
I ultimately threw in the towel and took my car to the dealer. I had 4 functioning sensors in my car (which I was able to verify with my own TPMS tool), but I just couldn't get the sensors registered no matter what we tried. So the only thing I had to pay the dealer for was for them to hook up their scan tool and to perform the relearn process. That set me back $100.
If you have 4 functioning sensors in your car right now and they are configured properly for a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage, then your dealer should be able to fix this in about 15 minutes. They still may bill you for a full hour. My dealer charges 1 hour any time they have to bust out their scan tool.
There's something about the TPMS system in the Mirage that makes it an absolute pain in the azz to deal with. I'm sure these guys you are working with are saying stuff like "Geez...we've never had this much trouble pairing sensors to a car before." Just understand that servicing the TPMS system on a Mirage is not nearly as straight forward as it is on most other cars.
