Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Diamante

1 Answer

My 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante keeps dying...i have a brand new battery and today all of the sudden my battery light came on and then the brake light and it started to lose power and died. I had someone change out the battery with a fully charged one and got somewhere else and it died again. Could it be the alternator?

Yes, it is likely an alternator since the battery light goes on when the alternator is not charging.

Good luck on this one.

I am trying to find the location for my crankshaft position sensor on my 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante


Your 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante is a 3.5L MFI SOHC 6cyl engine.
MFI = multi-port fuel injection
SOHC = single overhead camshaft
This answer covers Mitsubishi Diamante1.8L, 2.4L, 3.0L (SOHC and DOHC), 3.5L, and 1997-2000 1.5L Engines.

2.4L engine shown, others similar.

In Fig. 1, the two arrows point to the CKP (crankshaft position sensor) mounting bolts to remove. 2.4L engine shown.

Fig.2 - CKP reluctor removal

Remove the sensor and slide the reluctor wheel off of the crankshaft-2.4L engine shown.

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the timing belt.
3. Unplug the sensor connector.
4. Unfasten the two retaining bolts, then remove the CKP sensor from the vehicle.
5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

It sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start, replace your starter since you already replaced the battery. You might want to have your alternator checked out, or when you get your car started, test the battery terminals with a multimeter. You should have around 14 volts with the car running. If not, you will need a new alternator. The alternator won't keep the car from starting though, unless the battery was drained because it wasn't charged. Even then it is the battery keeping the car from starting.

If the starter is not clicking, check your fuses under the hood. If all checks out, you may have a bad ignition switch.

Brake light, battery light, antilock brake light coming on


this issue sounds like a grounding issue, teh main clue being everything gets dimmer. sometimes an additional ground is a faster repair than finding and resolving under dash issues.

This issue will likely NOT be battery or alternator.

Love the right rear tire clue, and it should not be related..

Diamante keeps dieing


Unfortunately you may have to take the veh. back to the dealer to have the veh's computer re-inialized, whats happening is the veh's immobilizer system ( anti- theft system ) is not allowing you to drive the veh, this is especially true if you have recently replaced any electronic components or disconnected the battery for a period of time, the device the dealer uses is called an " M.U.T.-lll " ( multi- use tester ) you can let the dealer do the procedure or you can rent the tool from mitsubishi and do it yourself, you can go to " mitsubishitechinfo.com " for more details Good luck

Hi firstly when you try to start the car do the lights dim then, when you release the key they go bright again,
If they do your starter is either stuck or the solenoid on the top of it has packed up.
Firstly look around the bottom area of the engine where it joins to the gearbox.
The starter should look like a long tubed shaped unit with at least a few heavy wires coming from it (the same as attached to the battery.
Once you have found it tap it with something non metal so as not to short it out but free it.
Try the starter again to see has that made it work.
Either way if it goes or does not go you will need to get the starter repairer by a car starter repair chap or get a good second hand one from a breakers yard off the same model as yours.
Make sure before the starter is removed that the battery is disconnected so as to avoid the battery being shorted when the wires are removed from the starter.
