Question about 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES
Hi, I should start by saying that I broke the fob key a month ago , put it back together and car started up fine up until a week ago where i've gone to start it and it cranked but did not fire then tried again and no crank at all. Fuel pump is priming, batterie is fine so I tried hitting starter motor and nothing, so I replaced stater motor and still nothing. I tested Ignition wire from Ignition to starter motor and nothing there. wHERE CAN I GO FROM HERE AND HOW THANKS
first thing to do is remove spark plugs and if they smell really fuely you will need to change them if that doesnt help you will need to get the microtech tuned for a good coldstart , this depends on if its running stand alone or as a piggy back
please leave feedback.

have you check ignition system sounds like ignition module.Also pull the boost pack and reduce fuel pressure and see if fault still exsist. Is the car running standed ecu?

Start by making sure you have spark to the spark plugs. If not you may have a problem with the plug wires or coil. It's also possible you're not getting gas to the engine possibly from a faulty fuel pump.
If you change the fuel pump be sure to replace the fuel filter also.

Start with the old addage, "Give it fuel, Give it fire, and you will get what you desire." Check your fuel rail under the hood, it should have a valve almost like where you add air to a tire. Press the pin, fuel should shoot out of there. If not, its a fuel problem then you just trace it back down the line. Could be a fuel filter? Next, check your spark. See if your getting any to the plugs, if no, start tracing it back. Also, you didn't say if you recently replaced plugs and wires. If there are plug wires, which there should be, make sure they are connected to the right plug. If not your firing order won't be even close, so thats a no start. Check your fuel injection relay under the hood if you have one. Make sure it is working. This relay gives the fuel injectors their power. Basically, check anything that you need to make an engine run but start with the most basic first. Could be a bad MAF Sensor too. Also, don't rule out something crazy like a Crankshaft position sensor. There are ways to back probe all the sensors with a test light just look around online and find out what sensors you have and how to test them.
