Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse
I was putting in a new battery and crossed the wires. Now the car will crank but not start. What did I blow?
First check the battery. May ruin the battery. Postive cable has a inline fuse in it. Just below the clamp.

I own a shop, and think this; If you have a Chilton's Repair Manual, you can go to the back of the book, and locate the typical wiring diagram for most all GM vehicles. They are basically the same on all of them. I know the Haynes Manual has these in the back pages, so look there first. I have a feeling you have not got the neutral safety switch wired up. There should be a yellow wire that comes from the ignition switch that goes to this switch. The switch is located under the dash near the clutch linkage on a straight drive, and on the transmission for an automatic. There should be a purple wire that comes from this switch that goes to the starter solenoid. It should have power on it "only" when the ignition switch is turned to the start position, and the neutral safety/clutch start switch is activated. This switch may be out of adjustment, and not sending any power to the starter solenoid. This wire should hook on the terminal that is closest to the engine block. The other wire will have power on it all the time when the ignition switch is in the on position, and should hook to the (hold in winding) on the other side of the solenoid. You may be loosing power, or not have any power on the purple wire that activates the (pull in winding that is closest

There are fusable links on cars so that when the cables are crossed it doesn't blow the computer. you will have to find it and replace it

It is stamped on the top of the engine, in the head. It is usually pretty easy to find, and you wont have to remove any pieces to see it.
