Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
V6 3.0L...Turn key 2 clicks and dash display lights up like it should. Try to start car nothing. The fuel pump powers up but the engine does nothing. No clicking, nothing. Battery is new as well as alternator. Any ideas?
If this car is a automatic then it could be the inhibitor switch --wherever that is as please remember that a big petrol engine like this with a auto box is something i just do not see here in spain,try paying 10 dollars a gallon for fuel then you will understand why we have diesels with a manual gearbox

my car wont crank, and I dont hear the fuel pump turn on when its in the on position. I have gotten a new fuel pump but it still dont work when it is in the on position nor crank my car. But you can hear the fuel pump when I try to crank the car but when i stop trying to crank it you hear the fuel pump go off. So if you could help me someone, anyone I would be totally happy :) my car is a (2001 Mitsubishi Galant 4cylinder)

It is your battery it may not be completly dead but it is too dead to run the starter. It take 300 -600 amp to run a starter and 20 amp to run a stereo

Hello! It sounds like the cables (both + and -) are corroded or loose...If you have a volt meter and a wee bit of experience using it, here is a voltage drop test...If you do not have a meter send a comment...Turn the key to on...turn on headlights, and blower motor...Set the meter to its lowest voltage scale...Place the positive probe on the center of the + battery post...Place the negative meter probe on the other end of the cable where it connects to the starter...Meter must read less than .03 volts...Next place the + probe on the center of the - battery post...The - probe on bare metal of the engine block...Meter must read less than .05 volts...If one or both readings are incorrect the problem is poor cable connections...If the cable ends that hook to the battery are corroded where the cable is attached to the connector...Replace both - and + cables...Making clean and tight connections on both ends...Send a comment....Guru...............Saailer
