Question about Mitsubishi 3000GT

1 Answer

My car won't turn over , every time I turn the key there is a single clicking noise behind the radio. I checked the starter, battery, battery cables, fuses, and fusable connection. Everything was fine. the theft lock light is on and I don't know how to turn it off, What is causing the problem and if it's the theft lock how do I turn it off? oh it's a 1995 mitsubishi eclipse gst standard Hi, hope you guys can help. I have the same problem with FTO not starting. At the moment I'm hot wiring the car to start. There's no live between the ignition switch and starter motor. Where exactly where would I find the inhibitor switch? Would it be fused? Best regards. Jane

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.

My car won't start but I don't think it's battery. When I turn the key to start it up the radio comes on and all of the lights, but when I crank it up it sounds like a clicking noise. What's wrong?


year, make, model, engine size?

If it is a rapid repeating clicking noise when the key is in the crank position than it is almost always the battery. If it is a single click every time you try to start it is almost always a bad starter.

Clicking noise key turned ignition


Check all the electrical connections between the battery & your starter. I believe there is a relay between the two & also the connections at the starter. If the shop didn't take the battery cables off when they checked your battery also check them for corrosion.

Won't turn over at all


I would be checking for the main lead to the battery /starter to ensure that it has not burnt though on the exhaust or has not worn through and been shorting out. The clicking noise would ne the solenoid moving but the current is not getting to the starter. Check the condition of the battery. Shorting of the cable will take the current away from the electrics so the engine would stop. The battery will have to be load tested to ensure that it has not been damaged.

Won't start, lights work and radio also but will not turn over


If lights work, radio but not turn over. First of listen to see if it clicks when turning key, if that happens most likely it is the solenoid on the starter not triggering, if you hear nothing when turning the key, then the cable coming from the battery that goes down to the starter is loose, bad connection. Make sure that the cable from battery is tight, and clean. If Like I said you hear a click when trying to start car, then it is starter/solenoid issue. I hope this helps, if it does please rate my free advice accordingly> Thanks Mike. and check out my personal expert site....

When trying to start the car the engine won't even try to turn over. All you hear is a few quite clicks. Battery is working (all the lights come on, can turn on the radio ect.). Any help appreciated.


Make sure the battery cables are tight to the posts. The starter takes alot more current than the headlights and will require more tight of a connection.

if the clicking noise is from the starter,you can tap the starter while someone tries to start the car.if it turns over and starts then the starter motor will need to be replaced.if you can get to the starter,using the multi-meter you can check to make sure the solenoid is getting battery voltage at the wire that gets voltage when the key is turned.if you do and you have battery voltage at the larger wire on the starter then this will also indicate the stater motor has a bad spot in it and will have to be replaced.the clicking noise is usually an indication that the solenoid is working passing the voltage to the starter armature but the starter is drawing too much amperage to turn the motor over.either way its recommended to replace the complete unit as if the solenoid is bad the motor itself will usually go bad shortly after.

I have a 2005 Tahoe with 43,000 miles and it will not start. It is not the battery. When you turn on the key all it will do is click and all light will come on.


Most likely the battery--even though you say no

If the battery is new ,then the solenoid on the starter
or the starter it's self

Maxima will not do anything but click once when I turn the key.


I have this problem right now also. Here is the deal as I see it. I have a 97 Saturn SC2 automatic (nuuf said!).
Against my intuition I let the guy at Autozone talk me into a battery, though I suspected the solinoid or the starter motor itself.
Put in the new batt and nothing but a single loud click. I took the new battery back and used the refund money to get a new starter.
I put it in and still just a loud click. I have cleaned the terminals and torqued the cable at the batt and starter.Because the solinoid clicks when I turn the key I am asuming (for now) that the ignition switch, neutral saftey switch and the "Startguard" (the little electric key you have to put in for your car to start) is good. In my knowlege, it has to be the main battery cable that runs from the battery to the starter. Next I'm gonna go out there and turn my key to the on position and connect a jumper cable from the battery directly to the starter solinoids high current side to confirm or bust my suspicion of the bad positive (red) battery cable. I will let you know how it goes.

Car would not start and made a clicking noise. I


It sounds l; like the starter solenoid has gone bad or the wire to the solenoid has gone bad. Check the wire harness to the starter and solenoid on the starter. If the wire is good, then it's the solenoid that needs to be replaced. If you remove the starter, Auto Zone can test it for you and should have the solenoid for the starter alone or it you like you can replace the whole unit. Starter and solenoid together. Good luck and hope this helps.
