Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

1 Answer

My 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS wont start, it was running perfectly fine yesterday but today it wont even crank, when i try its like im just turning the battery on. i took the battery to work and charged it with a 12v 40amp charger for 4 hours and put it back in to try again but still nothing, then i tried jump starting it but STILL the same thing. i think my starter and battery are shot but i could really use some help from someone who is a little more knowledgeable

    Are you saying the engine will not turn over with the starter or that it turns over but will not fire.

you don't hit the alternator, you hit the starter to help is shake free because it is already going bad. take battery and alternator to parts store and have both tested. check the wires at the starter and make sure they are on SECURELY. very important SOLID CONTACT is occurring. do your lights turn on? check starter relay if the eclipse is equipped with one.

SOURCE: 1998 mitsubishi mirage wont start?

check if the fuel pump is working, if you have someone near the tank and someone else crank motor you should be able to hear a bzzzzzz rom the tank from the pump. if no noise is heard then hit or thump the tank, this can make a fuel pump start to work again, if it starts, then the pump is almost dead

SOURCE: my 2000 eclipse wont start up all the way

I have the same problem on my 2002 Eclipse RS 2.4l 4 cylinder. Replaced the battery, starter, fuel pump(not at one time) . It started up when I had the starter put on as well the fuel pump. But everytime I started the car up it ran good till I turned it off the problem was still there. The car sounds like it wants to start but it sputters you can smell the gas so I know its getting fuel. it starts up fine with a cold start like in the morning.

Try getting a diagnostic thats what Im going to do next week.
good luck!!!

run the fault codes to check that it is the problem . Cam position sensors have critical air gap measurements ---or prone to the air gap being contaminated with stuff and the rotor being loose or damaged

Don't waste your money troubleshooting. It's The Crank Knock Sensor. Very common issue. Also save the heartache and don't buy a used one as it almost assuredly will be bad also.

1990 mitsubishi eclipse gs 2.o turbo. the car crank no start


Sounds like a failed or disconnected ignition coil wire.
Hook up an OBD reader and crank the thing for awhile watch the reader for the code. Look up the code number . You may need a book for your car to do this. The reader will tell you what's amiss.

Car dies going down highway hard to start afterwards it is a 1997 gs eclipse. what could be causing this


assuming the starter is good and the engine turn over fine but will not fire or run. when the car die, check why is it so hard to start. check if you getting sparks and fuel, no sparks check coil and wires,and if both are good than the cam sensor is bad, no fuel, check the fuel pump, pump good check the crank sensor.
