Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

1 Answer

Im having trouble starting my 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

Im having trouble with my 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder. When I try to start it, I just get clicks. The battery is good. But do I have a bad starter, or a bad relay?
I would think if im hearing clicks, the relay is good, but im not an expert!

Thank you all for your help!

    We tried to jump start the car, we had it hooked up to a chevy blazer (newer) for about a half an hour, and all it still did was click. We tried two different sets of jumper cables, still nothing. I will try what you suggested, makes since to me, but i would think that the car should at least try with the blazer jumping it after it sat for awhile.

    Thanks!

Josh, take the battery to Sears or a large auto parts store and have them test the condition.They do it for free. A battery will play the radio or run the lights with no trouble.It takes alot of amp power to turn the starter over. After you get it started check the volts across the battery.It should be just over 12 and less than 14 volts. If its not the alternator is not chargeing your battery,replace it.
I hope this helps you and your Mitsu.

Make sure battery is good, battery terminals and cables/connectors connected to alternator correctly and belts adjusted to manufactured specifications. Check to see where the whining noise is coming from, if still present. If not the belts or pulleys it could be the starter.
