SOURCE: what can it be

I have both a Stealth, and a 3000GT, so I guess you could say that know a bit about the platform. this sounds like one of three possible things.

  • Starter
  • Starter relay (in that funny shaped box behind the passenger side headlight)
  • "click click start" or maybe loose trigger wire at the starter
If you know anyone with a 3000, try to borrow their starter relay, it is about a 10 second swap, and you will know very quickly if it is the problem.

If the starter solenoid isn't even clicking, I am leaning heavily towards either a completely disconnected trigger wire, or a bad starter. If it is clicking, then it is most likely click click start

click click start occurs because Mitsu, in their infinite wisdom put a wire to the starter (the trigger wire) which was BARELY sized large enough to carry enough current to activate the solenoid on the starter, over time, and corrosion, the wire becomes too thin to carry enough current, so it does not fully engage the solenoid... the solution is to install a relay at the starter so the trigger wire closes the circuit in the relay from the hot power side of the relay to the trigger. The hot power side of the relay is ALWAYS on, and the wire is big enough to carry enough amperage. Thats the way I did it, you can also put the relay up by the battery, here are instructions for doing it this way, personally, I like the relay down tie-wrapped to the starter myself.

SOURCE: replaced battery, starter, 91 geo will not

The easiest way to check and see if it is the ignition switch or relay is to find the small stator wire on the starter not the one from the battery but the small one on the side of it on starter turn the key on and see if it is sending power to that wire if it is then the ignition switch and relay are good. Also check and make sure you are getting a full 12 volts on the battery cable to the starter and to the stator wire when switch is on. If you are not getting the full 12 volts or nothing at all then the switch is bad. But is could also be in the computer friend has a 92 dakota that was doing the same thing and his computer was bad.

The key switch went bad in my 88 Honda DX.I found out the problem quite by accident.Try playing with the switch very carefully and see if it will start for you! Yes the engine will spin buy it will not feed the coil so it will start.Good Luck!

94 mitsubishi 3000gt will not turnover


Most starter solenoids are on the starter. There are 2 to 3 wires going to the starter, the big one from the battery is for the starter motor it's self. The smaller one is from the ign switch to the sol. That's the one I'm guessing your having problems with. When you turn the key do you get a "click" sound or just nothing? If there is a click then your getting power from the key. And the heavy gauge wire is not delivering power to the motor. Check at battery or if they use a terminal block

My non turbo 91 gto wont start. my immobiliser light flashes 10 times once i have try 2 start then goes blank. but when i pull the key out it goes back to its normal flashes. i beleave its a market...


The 1991 mitsubishi did not have fancy anti theft just a starter imbolizercheck the battery make sure it can crank and the light can you light turn on and does the horn work? If you want to defeat it you will need a toothpick this is only if it is the starter relay at fault take the key out of the ignition put in neutral someone in the car to step on the brake just in case you do this in gear and it runs you over. Find the starter relay it in thhe engine fuse box location take the cover off the relay and expose the switch put it back in its socket collapse the relay and it should crank the starter now if this is a stick have the helper step on the clutch it should crank, now have them put the key on collapse the starter relay key on stpe on the slutch the car should start warm it up and turn it off get that tooth pick make the relay collapse start the car
