Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Diamante

1 Answer

Mitsi 2004 wont start

I purchased this wreck minus wheels, seats, stereo, dereg & ignition switch (smashed). A srewdriver seems to work fine in what is left of ignition & other wiring seems intact. With screwdriver I get acc (dashlights etc) then motor turns over & over but does not fire. Do these cars have anti theft devices that obviously didnt work before but work now or wot. I,ve been over the obvious & am a little confused so any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Cheerz Greg.

Yep, the keys will have what is known as a transponder inside, this transponder sends a signal to a transponder reciever in the column. When the signal matches it allows the car to start.
The system is intergrated into the ECU and cannot be removed, you need the original key to start the car.

I have a 2004 ford explorer and it keeps blowing ignition fuse cant seem to find out why. could someone help me please

An IGNITION coil failure is the most probable cause for a 30 amp fuse (F2-116, CJB) to repeatedly operate... If my drawings are correct you have a coil to check on EACH plug.

"COP" (coil on plug)... ignition system...
A simple resistance check to ground ought to reveal the failing COIL.
using a multi-meter as illustrated below... "Ohm" setting).

Central Junction Box:
Wiper F2 48 CJB ... 10 amp... has no relation to your
30 amp CJB ignition system fuse.

Check the physical connections at the bottom of your steering column... and make sure your battery connections are clean and tight...

Failing any of that you probably have a bad ignition switch as well

2004 Volvo xc-70 (Automatic trasmission in Park position) Ignition key inserts, lights the dash and unlocks the steering wheel but wont go past position II or III to start. Changed keys and managed to push...

Purchase an after-market switch set from an auto parts dealer like NAPA or Parts plus, any one of them would get you a switch set a lot cheaper than OEM. Before I'd pay $300 for a tumbler barrel I personally would remove the switch and use a screwdriver to start my car. I've done that also.

If for any reason your Rodeo is or seems to be "stuck" in 2WD or 4WD then below is instructions to reset the system

1. Ignition off, hold all 3 buttons (2H, 4H & 4L) in together.

2. Switch ignition on to the "reds" position (last position before actual engine ignition).

3. Hold in this position for 30 seconds.

2003 TT Air Bag & Seat Belt warning lights not eluminating

It is fairly complicated to remove the instrument panel to replace the light bulb. It requires you to remove the steering wheel and airbag module and several other components.

The sound you hear may be the coolant pump for the turbo.

New starter but car wont start have just told me what is wrong with it!!!
check power in, power out at the ignition switch...likely it has failed. switch is on the top of the steering column under the dash and is sometimes easier to reach if you disconnect the column from the dash and permit the sterering wheel to rest on the seat.
