Trouble Starting the 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer

I have to turn the key over anywhere from 25-50 times to start the car.I've tested the battery it's good,I checked all my fuses their good too.All my grounds are good,and when I turn the key over I can hear the fuel pump activate so I don't think that's it either.Someone said that it maybe the ignition I just don't know.Can you please help?

The most common cause for no crank is the neutral safety switch.
On automatic trans cars it keeps you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse. On manual trans cars you have to push the clutch in.
I would want to know if the starter is getting power from the key switch when the switch is in the start position.

SOURCE: Where is the fuse & relay switch for the fuel pump located.

Locate the fuse box. Facing the engine, the box is located on the the right fender. The fuel pump fuse should be labeled, The fuel pump relay is Incorporated in the FI relay located under right center of dash. It is a metal relay usually bolted to the floor near the ecm. Good luck and hope this helps but first replace the the fuel filter since it's the easiest thing to do.

I think you mean that the engine does not start first time you crank the starter. A common problem is a coil pack. If you car has a distributor, there's a coil pack inside it that is failing. Might also be the coolant temperature sensor that provides a signal to the engine computer.

Possibly needs a battery. Have the battery tested by an auto parts store. If battery tests good then problem is most likely the starter.

I have a 2003 Lancer. The car does not start. Starter solenoid clicks when turned over. The dash lights are dim. I've had the alternator and battery check and are good. Any direction would be helpful. ...


YOU NEED TO MEASURE THE VOLTAGE WHILE IT IS CLICKING AT THE BATTERY & AT THE STARTER, IF THE VOLTAGE IS BELOW 9 OR THE STARTER IS DRAGGING THE CABLES ARE NEXT. BATTERY CABLES CAN BE TRICKY, THEY MAY LOOK FINE, BUT CAN BE BAD. WIGGLE & PULL ON THE CABLES, THEY COULD BE THE PROBLEM. WHILE CRANKING, CHECK FOR HOT SPOTS AT CABLE CONNECTIONS. HOT SPOTS MEAN BAD STARTER OR POOR CONTINUITY .
