Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, I would check the negative connection to the battery. It might be that when the put the jumper cable on it made a good connection. I would take the negative cable off of the battery, clean the post and then reconnect it. Be sure to tighten is securely . Also be sure not to have the disconnected wire come in contact with the positive side of the battery. Hope this helps.

My wife's ford had a fault which turned out to be part of the car design. Having a front wheel touching against the curb turned off the car ignition.
I wonder if your alternator is crook. A volt meter across the car battery while it is running should read 13.4 volts or higher. If the voltage is lower the car battery will not charge.. A jump start will use the other vehicles battery and alternator to put charge into your battery so that the car will start. However if your car's alternator is crook the battery is not getting charged and as soon as you turn off your engine the charge is not enough to turn over the engine.
Would suggest you go to a car battery dealer and they can test your alternator and your car battery to see if they are both ok.

Last night I checked the battery and it was still good. I disconnected and then reconn ected both terminals and that brought the power back. When I turned the key the power went out again. I repeated the procedure but did not turn the key. Instead, I took off the knee bolster and tried to wiggle the wires under the dash to see if I could find the source since it seems to be related to the ignition. Nothing cut the power so I started it up and it worked fine except for the check engine light which was flashing that says I have a misfire condition. I drove the car 25 miles to work this morning and will be taking it to the dealer for a better inspection.

Check your battery cables for tightness, especially your ground cable. Now you have a new battery, so you have eliminated that as the source of the problem. Turn on your headlights, do they go out or very dim when attempting to start the car? If so, you have a poor electrical connection somewhere - loose cable, bad cable, possibly bad ignition switch.

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.
