You seem to have either a weak fuel pump or the the TPS(throttle position sensor) is faulty. the tps is located on the throttle body. please rate this thanks

that means it needs service. also probly means that something is either loose or broken wise. you were probobly receiving a service engine soon signal when you put the keys in the ignition and turn it one slot to where the car is running on battery so the radio should work. and thats where the idicators would of been going on. and you probobly didnt notice those

My eclipse will start and then just die, like its gas is cut off


We just had this and it was a sensor called something like the CAM TIMING SENSOR - which gave the engine bad timing when it tried to get going. The car is great since we got it replaced - but it cost like $360 to get it all diagnosed and replaced.

The right turn signal will only work if its hit manually instead of just being turned on once. I have checked the fuses and changed the bulbs, all are good. I even cleaned the connection to the light but have had no luck getting it to flash intermittently once I have turnedd the signal on.

Starting problems


many times when a fuel pump starts to fail it fails intermittenly and then it just wont work at all. so it may be your fuel pump. because it still cranks strong then it's not the battery. it may also be loose wireing to and from your distributer. that could explain why it works intermittently. when the wire barely connect it works and as you drive they my loose contact. make sure all the connections to and from the distributer are not loose. you may need to change those cables as well.
