Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante
Hi firstly when you try to start the car do the lights dim then, when you release the key they go bright again,
If they do your starter is either stuck or the solenoid on the top of it has packed up.
Firstly look around the bottom area of the engine where it joins to the gearbox.
The starter should look like a long tubed shaped unit with at least a few heavy wires coming from it (the same as attached to the battery.
Once you have found it tap it with something non metal so as not to short it out but free it.
Try the starter again to see has that made it work.
Either way if it goes or does not go you will need to get the starter repairer by a car starter repair chap or get a good second hand one from a breakers yard off the same model as yours.
Make sure before the starter is removed that the battery is disconnected so as to avoid the battery being shorted when the wires are removed from the starter.
