Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Galant
Every so often the magna has a hissy fit and will not start, there is no pattern as to when this will happen, long trip, short trip. 3 times in past 2 months. Put key in ignition turn and nothing, zip, zilch, can try numerous times and nothing. If I leave it overnight then starts first time. Lights are all ok, everything is fine except she :) won't start when you least expect it. So far have been lucky and been near a bus stop but ......what if?? Anyone out there have a similar problem or maybe know why she is doing this to me?
Hi ...problem could be automatic transmission start isolater switch linked to gear selector(designed /adjusted not to start in gear),or ignition switch worn..creating electrical resistance and becomes overhot loosing power contact,due to burnt switching faces......so if it happens again,.. handbrake on ! ! and try moving gear selector whilst attempting to start...if this remedies starting ,...it may be isolater switch..if not,... it will most likely be ignition electrical switch at fault...hope this helps
