Question about 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start in the winter...(15,000km)

My car won't start in the winter if sitting for 2-4 days.
I don't use my car every day but in the winter I need to give it a ride every second/third day otherwise the car won't start and need a boost.

A new battery was put in last year (February) everything went fine for the rest of the winter. This year I decided not to activate the remote starter...just in case. This January the car sat for 3 days and would turn slowly then die. I got a boost and went to the dealer. They can't find anything wrong. Tested all circuits clean and tightened battery connections.

Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Thank you for your input. The problem is that the battery discharges after 2-3 days of not being used. I noticed that even during the day the battery is weakening bit by bit so I make it a must to take it for a ride.



    I was away for 5 days and came back to a dead battery. So I will need to call in for a boost. I will mention to the dealer about the spark plugs and hope for the best.



    Thanks again for your input.

Try using a fuel treatment. Sometimes water builds up in the lines and makes it hard for the car to start cuz you can't combust something thats frozen... I'd recommend Lucas Fuel Treatment... either that, or maybe new spark plugs, though if the dealer thought they were fine, I don't think that's the case.

If i understand you right the truck has been sitting for two years.If it has been sitting that long without running or moving the gas has turned to varnish...I suggest that you drain and refill the fuel tank,and replace the fuel filter located on/in the frame rail on drivers side.

Since you have multiple codes, I would check the wiring harness at the ECM. If you can get your hands on a pin out sheet for the ECM it would help emincely. Sounds like you are loosing power or ground at the ECM. This could be from the pins loosing contact or a wire could be broken. I have found wires that were broke inside the rubber coating. some days they work, some days they don't.
Repair as necessary. And for the pins you can pull the plug and use a paper clip or something small and push the female pins together alittle, it doesn't take much. Usually when I do the push the pins together, I just do them all, better safe than sorry.

2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS V6 3.0L Cylinder 3 Misfire


Anything is possible but if you want to know if #3 is really misfiring and hurting the performance try pulling the plug wire to cylinder # 3 with the engine off (so you don't get shocked) Now start the care and see how it runs. If it runs the same then #3 is really bad. In that case imagine how much better it would run if #3 was up and operating correctly.

Losing power to the fuel pump


well that sounds like a relay. if your car is an automatic, double check than you replaced the ASD and fuel pump relays and not the trans control relay.
if its not the relay, its probably the ECU(PCM).
