Hey there, will the engine crank? what happens when key is in start position?

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No crank nothing

So no clicking? no single click or fast clicking?

and you confirmed battery posts are tight?

Theft system

If you have the theft system, do you still have the key FOB?

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Key fob black keys connected to

k, lock all the doors and close the hood and hatch, then unlock the vehicle with the FOB. If it's the alarm that would disarm it.

IF THAT doesn't work, let me know if you have a volt meter

No volt meter
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Have done the other no luck

what a bout a test light? have one?

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
What about imobilizer
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Test light no but can get one

well, if you hit unlock with the FOB it would disarm the alarm, no way to check the alarm without a vol meter.

if you have a test light we can at least narrow it down pretty easily.

Ok how
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Ok give me the run down

you need to remove the starter relay, turn the key to start and check terminals 1 and 5 for power.

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Ok

depending on whether or not you have power or not, you can back trace the circuit or go forward. We need results though to get a pathway.
