1997 Mitsubishi TF wagon starting problems

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

You need to have the Alternator tested, the battery symbol indicates the system voltage is low. The other problems are due to the low voltage.

I got check lite in my mitsubhishi magna exec. n sometimes it never goes off ... even the spark is there , all fuses are ok battery is ok fuel pump is new but still not get off some time whats the sol


Hi Josh, The engine check light can come on for a number of different reasons and will not always mean the vehicle comes to a stand still immediately. My advise is tohave a scan carried out to find out why it has come on, and then have it attended to before you're forced to take the long walk home. Regards John
