Could very well be the starter motor ,but check the ignition switch with a multi meter or a light first as the fault could also be in the ignition switch and i would isolate the fault first before paying out for unecessary parts

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't crank over. Takes a few times turning the key over and over to get it to crank. Other times it starts right up no problem. Is my starter going out?


Not necessarily. You may simply have a bad connection at the battery or at the starter solenoid. You could also have a grounding problem at the starter or at the starter solenoid. Or you could have a failing contact in your key switch! When you try to crank the engine, but it does not crank, do you hear any clicks or any kind of rattle sound or buzz? If you hear a click but no cranking of the engine, then you may have a bad starter solenoid ... which, if available, is a lot cheaper than a replacement starter!

2007 mitsubishi eclipse hard to start after filling up tank. No check engine light on. Bad starter?


Maybe the carbon cannister is loaded up. Try parking the car facing uphill and see if that's better.

Starter is probably OK. Need more symptoms. OR it will be 20 question time. Takes a LONG time cranking B-4 the engine begins to run? That's what I'm guessing.

Does nothing to take the key back out and try it again.Just keep cranking until the engine starts to run.Don't be afraid to crank it for 15 seconds,or so.

if you can get to the starter, give it a whack with a hammer on a rear corner of the bigger cylinder and see if it cranks. if it does, it will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

Hyundai accent 2001 will not start all lights work radio works heater fan works battery in 3 months old when I turn the key all i hear is a humming sound for about 1 min. than nothing. weather has be


The humming would be the fuel pump coming on. It should only hum for a few seconds, then shut off.
Your problem is with the start circuit from the battery to the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Check the connections at the starter (the big cable) for tightness.
Is the battery charged up enough to turn the engine over? Check by turning headlights on and observe while someone turns key to crank. If they dim a LOT, then either battery is too low, or the starter is bad and needs removing for testing. If brightness doesn't change, then the circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is likely not working. Check for 12 volts at the small wire to starter solenoid with key in cranking position. If you have power there, the solenoid may be bad. Remove starter for testing. If no power at solenoid in starting position, then either the ignition switch is bad or the neutral safety switch might be the problem, or the wiring from the switch to the starter solenoid is not passing current.
Good luck.

My 97 Mitsubishi eclipse does not start. I change the battery and the starter but the car still will not start can some one please help me?


Hello! I'd be glad to...First off, when you say it won't start do you mean the starter motor will not crank (spin) the engine?...If so, what do you hear when the ignition key is turned; A click or silence?

1997 Honda Accord, 4 cyl, auto trans. When I turn


The starter sit on top I belive on the passenger side above the transmission, have some one hold the key to start while you tap or even hit the starter some time it will crank over if it does replace it, not that big of a job. If it still dont start there a big wire that one comes from the battery and a small one that come from you ignition switch ( key ) jump those two wire's ( if stander transmission make sure you have it out of gear ) there should be voltage at big wire all the time, if it still dont crank over replace starter assembly.Hope this was very helpful.

Car wont start.charged battery,nothing when i turn the key.


if you hear a loud click and nothing happens sounds like the starter has a dead spot in it. Sometimes tapping on the body of the starter with a hammer will make it crank.

1997 mitsubishi eclipse gst wont start it looks that there is no gas,i changed the fuel pump,the air mass ssensorr , and some other sensors


Remove the bottom of your back seat. Turn the ignition on without cranking the car. You should hear the fuel pump prime for a few seconds and shut off. If you don't hear that sound, there are two relays on the right side of the firewall next to the master cylinder that are part of the fuel system. I had one go bad on me (the contact corroded) and didn't know which one it might be so I bought the cheaper of the two. Haven't had a problem since!

1991 Honda Accord Starting/Ignition trouble


sounds like a bad battery or the battery cables are corroded where they hook up to the battery or loose. if it cranks for a couple seconds slow than clicks quickly there isnt enough voltage getting to the starter. not all new parts are good.
