(you could check my case here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t25385376-mitsubishi_wd_60737_occasionally_turns

problem seemed to be DVI cable connections, reseating cable multiple times may have fixed it.)

In case it helps, from the manual for models: MODELS: WD-60C9 / WD-65C9 / WD-73C9 / WD-60737 / WD-65737 / WD-73737 / WD-82737 WD-65837 / WD-73837 / WD-82837

Code 17 from the manual:

17
Communication loss, TV Micro - Engine (3.3V-ENG-SDA & SCL) Loss of 12V from PWB-POWER to Engine
(Loose PE or PE2 connector).
Engine Failure

2007 mitsubishi eclipse hard to start after filling up tank. No check engine light on. Bad starter?


Maybe the carbon cannister is loaded up. Try parking the car facing uphill and see if that's better.

Starter is probably OK. Need more symptoms. OR it will be 20 question time. Takes a LONG time cranking B-4 the engine begins to run? That's what I'm guessing.

Does nothing to take the key back out and try it again.Just keep cranking until the engine starts to run.Don't be afraid to crank it for 15 seconds,or so.

I have replaced the camshaft sensor, Crankshaft sencor, computer, crankshaft pully, and new spark plugs on my 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse and it still won't start, what could it be?


Engine needs spark, fuel and air to run. I assume the starter is turning the engine over. Have you verified you have spark at the plugs? Have you verified you have fuel pressure? Can you hear the fuel pump when you first turn the ignition key? If, yes to those, check the timing belt settings to make sure something hasn't caused the timing to change.

Went i turn the key the engine light go out right away


I hope it does and you do too. If the check engine light does'nt go out right away it means theirs something wrong or has been and the computer is checking to see if it's a problem atr the moment. If thier hasn't been any problems and thier aren't any problems at start up the light should go out right away. If your talking about the oil light it also will go out as soon as the engine turns just a little, It shows that the one way valve in the oil filter is holding and as soon as the pump turns any theirs pressure. Thats good too. As far as the check engine light goes if you turn the key on without starting the engine three times and leave it on the third time the check engine light will flash out the codes or the odometer display will tell the codes or display no cdes stored if their aren't any depending on the model year. If you were to say the make year and model I'd tell you the exact answer. before 1987 they didn't flash out the codes and had tobe disnosed with a test light and an OHM meter. trucks did'nt do it till 89 93 they went OBDII and the odometer displayed the code and the basic name of the problem the code stands for.

Maintenance light blinks several times when I turn my 1999 Acura TL on. It goes off after about 30 seconds should I be concerned.


this may mean its time for an oil change it's the cars way of saying it's time for a scheduled maintenance.
Turn the key off and push and hold the select button. Keep holding while you turn the key to the on position (not the start position) keep holding for about 15 seconds then turn the key back off . next turn the key back to on position the light should only come on once. now you can start the car

The car will not start sometimes. It turns over but will not start. Note: I know when it will not start when the check engine light fails to come on when first turning the key over. (Replaced ASD relay and...


I had this same issue a few years back with my 2000 MItsubishi Eclipse. I was told the starter relay needed to be switched out. It has happened more than once, so I keep an extra starter relay in my car so I can switch them out if needed. It had also looked as if the starter relay had melted.
