Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Galant
We have a 1996 Mitsubishi Chariot (manual), and when I try to switch it on I have to sit and turn the key over and over and over again. It can take between 5 and 50 (if not more) turns to actually turn over. There is just a clicking sound. I can usually predict when the next turn will work as there is an odd 'click' in the general area of the passenger door on the left front. Then if I hold the key for a few seconds longer after cranking it then it starts. If I let go too soon after it takes then it just cuts out and I have to sit for another hour trying to get it switched on again. Please help -my hubby has checked all the fuses and the wires and all connections in side the steering column (in case something was worn or pulled apart) and still no luck.
There is a kick panel on the side of the door and you may have a starter relay going bad, remove the screws on the side of the kick panel and remove next when turning key on to start fell the relays that are in that compartment when you feel one that clicks that is the start relay switch, remove it and try replacing it. If that does not fix the problem you will need to check the ground wires and the starter to see if it loose on the engine. If you need more help please post here and hope this helps.
