Apologies for the delay, sometimes it can take a while for your question to be answered, depending on the availabilty of the experts and the complexity of the question.

Can you unlock the doors with the key fob? Was this a running vehicle or was it just left parked up?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hey Baz. Got car running by inserting the key fob in to socket in glove box. Flat battery must have set off immobilizer. Any idea how to re set key fob as still wont work outside of the socket or remotely cloae the doors?

Does your key fob have the red led between the lock and unlock button?

Expert:  CarDoc replied 2 years ago.

Sit in the driver seat and keep hold of the lock + unlock button simultaneously until the led flashes 3 times, then straight after, press the unlock button and the led should flash a further 2 times. All this has to be done fairly quickly.

Customer: replied 2 years ago. good. Cant get bloody boot to unlock eeither
Expert:  CarDoc replied 2 years ago.

Does the key fob have power? Have you tried replacing the key fob battery?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Tried both key fobs so battery should be good in either one

This VIDEO shows how it should be done.

If this process does not work, you will have to get the keys programmed again with a Mitsubishi diagnostic software.
