1993 3000gt won't start

Asked by Jun 17, 2017 at 09:07 PM about the 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT 2 Dr SL Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1993 3000gt that I bought a few months
back and am having my first problem with it. It was
starting fine no problems and then 2 days ago it
didn't start just clicked. I figured it was the starter
and changed it but that didn't help. It has a new
battery and terminals. I checked all the fuses and
relays I could find and they were all good. I
checked the neutral safety switch...kinda since I
didn't really know what to look for if it wasn't

test the battery, test the alternator, something could be draining the battery while off. Measure the voltage on the battery and see if its below the battery's rated voltage. If so, something is pulling power from it.

The battery is at 12.8 and hasn't changed since it didn't want to start and I've been trying different stuff to try to get it started the last 3 days

Lights windows and all dash instruments work and the battery voltage hasn't remained constant



check plugs / coil pack. I'd pull at least 1 plug to check for any gunk/damage. Is it trying to turn over when you turn the key or is it just clicking from the starter?

It was just clicking but it's not doing anything now. I can hear what I assume is the fuel pump turn on and that's it other than the dash lights

I put new plugs and wires in about 3 weeks ago so I'd hope it isn't that but I'll check
