I can't crank my 96' mitsubishi eclipse
.I found Indeed an unplugged white connector just below the dashboard at the driver's side. The problem is, I already looked many times but I can't find where I should plug this connector, any hints? Should I remove some parts of the steering column in order to found the correct place to attach the connector? It's white, rectangular shape, has 12 pins but "only" 9 wires..
Thanks a lot,

Is it a strong crank? If it is a weak crank it could be your battery doesn't have enough juice. If not that it could also be starter. If neither of those check spark, fuel and pressure in that order from easiest to biggest Pain in the neck.
first the cam sensor shouldn't be upside down from the 95. they both should be with the plug facing down. they 95 CAS has a different plug than the 99 CAS. the 95 has round pins and the 99 has flat pins.
----------------------------- also the 95-96 relays are opposite the 97-99
--------------------- besides that it could be the ecu. i also have heard of the locating pin on the intake cam shearing off, allowing the gear to turn with the timing belt without the actual camshaft spinning.
I have a 95 eclipse and had the same problem. Replaced the coil, plugs, wires. I had it taken to 3 garages before I found out. It's a problem with the anti-theft system. I don't have the exact location, but the guy who finally found out the problem said it was under the front bumper. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I know how puzzling the problem is. I spent a good 700 dollars and 4 months on two "I don't know"s and a little under $200 to actually get it fixed.
This sounds like the timing belt is shot. Remove the distributor cap, have your helper crank the engine. Is the rotor turning?? If not, then it is the timing belt. Some engines are rather forgiving when the belt breaks, some will get bent valves. Frankster016
