The battery terminal may look clean - give them a good scrub with a wire brush and see how you go.

SOURCE: 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT Won't Start?

Could very well be a security system failure telling the computer that the vehicle is being stolen. I had the same issue with my jeep and there was a wire i had to ground out to bypass the alarm system. look into that

SOURCE: 01 Montero not starting but electrical works when key in ignition

I had the same problem and it turned out to be the new key I had made was not quite a perfect match for the idnition cylinder. It worked fine but after a few months the car would intermittently just crank over. I would never know when this would happen. Most of the time it fired up without any problem. The problem was that over time the new key because,it wasn't quite perfect, wore down something inside the ignition cylinder (the place where you put your key to start). Somehow this made the security system nervous and it shut off the power to the plugs. It was a real head scratcher. I hope this solves your problem.

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: 1996 mitsubishi eclipse doesn't start when turning

check for voltage at the small start wire on the starter when cranking the engine--you will need someone help. If there is no voltage you may have a bad neutral safety switch ,which is on the trany shifter.you have an automatic trans i assume.
If so try putting in neutral when cranking.

2001 mitsubishi eclispse gs wont start how do you bypass the security system


  • 1 Turn the ignition key counter clockwise in the driver's side door to unlock the caricon1.png. This deactivates the alarm long enough for you to gain access to the vehicle. Then, place the key in the ignition and turn the key until it clicks once. This starts the car's battery, but doesn't ignite the engine. The LED light on the dashboard should stop blinking, indicating the alarm is temporarily disabled.
  • 2 Locateicon1.png the box for the alarm under the dashboard on the driver's side of the car. Then, look for the override button on the box. Typically, the small button is either red or black. With the ignition key in the "on" position, press the override button and hold it in until the alarm chirps once. This disables the alarm until you manually reactivate it.
  • 3 To reactivate the alarm, turn the key to the "on" position and press the override button once. The alarm chirps twice, indicating the alarm is active.

  • Hope this helps!

    Turn your steering column while turning on the car this should help. I had a problem with mine once and it did this (wouldn't start) but once the battery was replaced problem went away. You could also have a defected battery which also happened to my 2001 Eclipse RS last year.

    2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse starts sometimes then wont and just makes a clicking sound, is my starter going out?


    could be, unless your battery is dying. a nearly dead battery will make clicking noises while it is cranking. if you keep forcing it by turning the key from "run" to "crank" and it gets it to start it may be a dead spot on the starter.
