Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,As you've probably read already the ignition switch is usually the problem on these... of course having replaced it should have ruled it out.
Was the replacement switch a genuine Mitsubishi part or aftermarket?
Assuming the switch is OK, is there any change when you put the shifter into Neutral and try to start it?
Thanks.Lets just check our ignition switch again briefly.Go ahead and take it out, but leave it plugged into the harness.
Then take a flat head screw driver and insert it into the business end of the ignition switch in the little plastic slot and manually turn it to the Start position and perhaps a slight bit past that... does it engage then?
Lets try that out and see if you get temporary relief again, and if we do then getting a genuine one would be a good idea.
If it behaves the same, let me know and we will persevere.
