Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The battery terminal may look clean - give them a good scrub with a wire brush and see how you go.

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

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.

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.
