Customer Question
When i attempt to...

When i attempt to start my shogun the engine does not engage but my radio and the dash board lights all start going on and ticking on and off. In some instances my indicators also flash. I hear a ticking noise from the left hand side of the engine. At no point does the car start

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Yes all the fuses are working

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mitsubishi?

Mitsubishi shotgun 1999

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have tried the battery but no thinking it could be an electrical fault.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

It' most likely going to require some electrical testing to determine exactly what is wrong. What you're describing is usually caused by very low battery voltage available to the vehicle for whatever reason, whether it's because of the battery itself, a cable or connection issue.

It isn't clear from your post, has something been done with the battery since this problem arose?
