Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

2 Answers

2002 mitsubishi lancer won't start Ok so my car started making a loud screeching noise when it would start up, and then a few days later I drained my battery on accident listening to music in the accessory position not on. Yesterday when I stopped at the store my car wouldn't start up. It made a clicking noise but sounded like there was no spark to start the engine. I checked my windows and doors and they worked (I have power windows and door locks so if the battery was dying I would have noticed the window moving super slow or them not working) but when I came back today the battery was dead. So I'm curious as to what is wrong, is it both my starter and battery? Or just one? Or maybe my alternator or all 3 possibly, anyone have any advice? Thanks

When a car battery gets low, the windows won't necessarily move extremely slow - you may still have functionality, but not enough power to start the vehicle. Charge up the battery or replace it if it is more than 4-5 yrs old. As for the screeching sound, its possible a loose alternator belt could cause that - if the belt is too loose the alternator might not be charging the battery properly. Another possibility is the alternator is binding and that can cause the screeching too. Remove the drive belt and try to rotate the alternator by hand - if there is excessive resistance you might be looking at a new alternator too. Most automotive parts stores will test your battery and charging system for free if you ask them.

Start by verifying that the timing belt has not jumped a few teeth. You may also have a vacuum leak or poor fuel pressure. Undo the gas cap and see if the problem goes away. If it does, the fuel pump may be worn out.

My radiator fans both have stopped working


Could be a few things. If your fans were just working then just stopped, it could be the fan motor. It could also be the relay. If you know where your lo speed and high speed cooling fan relays are located, you can eliminate this step easily. Take a known working relay (rear defrost or something not essential for starting) and replace the fan relay with the known operational relay while your engine is running and A/C is turned on. If the fans start, there's your problem, if not, then it's probably your fan motors.
Make sure the fuse that protects the fan speed relays is not blown as well.
