Question about 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT
I have a 94 mitsubishi 3000gt that wont turn over, the problem started about 6 months ago, every once in a while i would get in the car and when i would turn the key........nothing. I would have to turn in about 3 times and then all the sudden it would start. Kept getting progressively worse so I tried replacing wire that goes to starter, replaced starter, replaced battery. Checked fuses, inside car and underneath hood. Alternator has been replaced. I am now trying to replace the ignition switch. Any one have any ideas ? Maybe the starter relay? This car is very expensive to fix so I am trying not to take in to have it fixed if possible. Please Help!
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

SOURCE: my car won't turn over
does this car have a safety device that won't let you start the engine unless the clutch is pushed in???
if so that little switch on the clutch pedal could be faulty.

It sounds like you have a bad ground or short somewhere
you will need to get it to a good mechanic thats good with electrical troubleshooting

did you have the battery light on when the car was running
try a new battery see if that solves it if not then it is the alternator

Check the IAC valve...or sometimes known as an electronic choke. That valve is how your engine gets air when the throttle body plate is closed. If the valve is stuck due to malfunction or carbon build up then it will cause that problem, and give you a rough idle at best.

could be the crank sensor, you need to check spark and fuel delivery, if you have fuel then its got to be the high tension side of things that are wrong, does this model run off a coil pack for the ht, could be that, you said you change the alternator, check connections at the rear of alternator, this could be the supply for the ht etc,good luck.
