Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
Buy a bicycle ?
You are having fun !.....................NOT !!!
no 1....Check the fuel inertia switch has not been tripped ?
The problem has to be tied in with something you have done, as it was running till you put your hands on it.
Check back at the battery and make sure you have not pulled off a connection somewhere by mistake in the vicinity of the battery.
Check your fuses with a 12v test light !
Are you getting a spark at the plugs ?
Are you getting fuel pressure to the engine ?
Do you think your cam belt has decided to give up the ghost ? have you ever renewed it ?
Hopefully you have got it running by now ?
If not, try running through these thoughts.
Good Luck !
Please give a FixYa rating, if you think I deserve it !

do you have spark? How do you know if your timing belt is good? sometimes it doesnt break just shed the teeth which could be missing under the crankshaft. The best way to check is to have two people. have one try to start the car and see if the camshaft is actually spinning. The crankshaft will always turn but if the teeth are gone on timing belt this would cause the belt to stay in one position not moving the camshaft. so if you can remove the upper timing belt cover and do this quick inspection with someone that will tell you for sure. if it does look like it is spinning then by hand turn engine very slowly with plug coil wires removed. and make sure teeth are all there. It couldve jumped timing. (valve timing)

Locate the fuse box. Facing the engine, the box is located on the the right fender. The fuel pump fuse should be labeled, The fuel pump relay is Incorporated in the FI relay located under right center of dash. It is a metal relay usually bolted to the floor near the ecm. Good luck and hope this helps but first replace the the fuel filter since it's the easiest thing to do.

look in the passenger side kick panel theres a relay there! and also under the driver seat! but if you are still having this problem its probably gona be a replace of fuelpump and relay inside the fuel tank
