Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage

2 Answers

My car wont start without a jump and cuts off from the a/c

I just bought a 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage and when it starts it runs good but then if i turn on the air, windshield wipers, lights, ect. the car eventually stalls out and cuts off. I was able to turn it on but now it wont even start with out a jump. It seems like it runs as long as i don't use any extra power. what do you think might be the problem.

1st thing to check is the battery. If you can still start the car, bring it to a parts store where they can do a free check of the battery and charging system (alternator). You may just have a battery that is at the end of it's life. Let me know what the store says, I'll help further if needed. Updates appreciated.

The alternator sounds like it is weak. Bring it to your local parts store that can do a free test on the system. Also check the battery that can have the same symptoms.

Anytime you replace a sensor or ignition parts on a Mitsubishi, (also have a 95 Mirage) the whole **** thing goes out of whack and won't start. Have to reset the ECC (ECM) supposedly by allowing it to drain of juice (disconnect both battery cables for about a day) See if this works for you

Want to reset ECC (ECM) on 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5L. Don't know if I am doing it right

This procedure is knowed as "soft reset", and you will must keep in mind that, if some anti-theft system is instaled there, the no start condition could appears after disconneting the battery.

Additionally, could try and check if the starter is cranked when turn ignition key, or no click sounds there? Could be a battery charge, starter or ignition swtich issue.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Car needs to be jumped or will not start

Car starts fine with a jump? You sure your battery is good? If the battery is good then you must have a connection bad right at the battery. If you jump it and it starts then the starter is ok. If you jump it and it stays running with lights on, heater fan on, etc. then the alternator is probably ok. The alternator won't keep the car from starting, but it might not let it start the next time if it is not recharging the battery. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.
