My vt worked but vx hasn't .don't bother with saying locksmith etc. I'm a backyard lol ain't have funds for new 1. Any ideas. First time being stumped with this car is it cause it's a 2002 vx ,I don't think it should matter but help I can't stand driving this [email protected]#king Mitsubishi magna

you will need to get a new fob programmed from your security number

If you're handy with a soldering iron, the batteries with the soldering tabs on them, are available from Jaycar.
Other than that.....a new fob, as lout said above.

sounds like it is the remote/fob
i would not get a remote copied from your one unless they guarantee to refund your money if it does not work
