Question about 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer

1 Answer

I was driving and took an exit, suddenly as I was coming to a stop, the entire system shut down. The lights inside and out went out, and the locks don't even work!

There is a good chance you may popped a main fuse. You have this listed as a 2008. If this is the case I would have the dealer look at it since its still under warrenty. Something shorted and caused this and if you just replace the fuse if thats thats the problem, this could happen again and leave you stranded again. It could also damage a computer.
This should not of happen unless you have a faulty part.

Ok 03 Yukon, at first not running but after being towed home it hit a bump and all the lights came on. Took it off the wrecker it started right up, but nothing electrical in cab works, and now it won'


It might possibly be the ignition switch, or the linkage to it.

They reason I suspect this is your statement, "I bumped the key forward and it will engage the starter but still wont shut off"

The part where you insert the key is really a "cylinder lock", that then transfers the turning motion to the actual "ignition switch"

My wife had a Pontiac (also a GM product) that the cylinder lock had a linkage that went to the ignition switch (similar to a sliding electric switch, with the 4 positions, ACC, OFF, RUN, START), which was bolted on further down the steering column, underneath the plastic covering on the column.

Another person here had a similar problem, and after suggesting this, he wrote back that he removed his steering column cover and found a screw opposite the cylinder lock that had loosened and fallen out.

So you could try removing the steering column cover and see if all is ok.

Also, when you have it opened up, observe the action as you turn the key, as the problem could be the cylinder lock itself.

Have a 2001 ford focus. first central locking suddenly stopped working and can#t even lock door with key. Now the speedometer and odometer keep dropping to 0 and then back up again and today the engine...


I would test your alternator..when you car isnt charging and battery voltage drops below 9.6 volts your instrument cluster will perform a reset...or shut off..as for the door locks im not entirely sure why they would stop working...good luck

2005 honda civic ex automatic stalled at 40 mph


Check the main fuses under the hood. There are several large ones there. A loose connection on one of them could have caused the sudden, complete electrical failure you described. If it is a loose connection, it would certainly explain why it "came back to life" by itself.

Also, might you possibly have any sort of aftermarket security system that has an immobilizer feature on it? While I wouldn't expect this to disable the entire car including the radio, if it were incorrectly installed I suppose it could.

I hope this help. Good luck!

2002 taurus passenger door lock


Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.
