Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

Intermittant Starting 2002 Lancer

About one month ago Sept08, my 2002 Lancer suddenly did not start; I have owned the car since day one.
The battery was replaced, a new alternator put in, and finally a new starter. The same issue still is present.
When the key is in the ignition and I turn with the clutch pedal down, nothing happens-no crank, but there is some power. But not enough to lock the doors. The radio shorts out and all the programmed stations are wiped out, but the clock is not reset.
Sometimes the car will start, sometimes it wont. The only other item I have messed with is under the hood is the green ECU that was clicking loudly before the battery was replaced. I unplugged it and replugged it to make it stop clicking.
Any ideas?

You gotta make sure you re-plugged it properly, when you unplugged it a small piece of debris, may have fallen in, gently blow on the connections and re-plug it

I own a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo. Bought it 2 months ago knowing it had a heater core that would need to be fixed eventually. Driving down the expressway 2 weeks ago it stopped running, had it towed...


Hi there cristina bam! If the core was bad it may have been leaking. Many newer cars on the road these days have a sensor specifically made to monitor the coolant level. If the collant has leaked out there is a very probale chance that the sensor is preventing your Jeep from starting to prevent damage. Add enough fluid to the coolant system to fill the motor block and radiator. If it starts it was the fluid level, if not, there is a greater underlying issue at hand. I really hope that this helps you out and if i was of some assistance please rate my solution. Have a great day!

My 2002 lancer battery keeps dieng but starts whem i jump it but when i kill it tha battery dies any answer what the problem is


If the car runs everytime you jump it & continues to run until you shut the engine down & won't restart, then it is either a bad battery, or bad connections from the battery to the starter solenoid & fuse box. If the ground connection were bad your car wouldn't start when jumped & it's apparent that once you get enough voltage(jumping it) to the cars starting system it will run, there are no other options. Battery or wiring.

Good luck

How old and what quality is your battery? If you have the original or an aftermarket battery in it, make sure it's within the rated life before you start messing with other things.

If your 2002 gmc envoy or sierra will not even turn over with a kown good battery try starting it in nuetral then go back to park and try starting again. There is a park nuetral safety switch that can malfunction. Turn the key on then shift into nuetral, then turn fully to start.
