Question

Visitor, 3.0L V6, Columbia, SC, April 13, 2010, 08:15

My 2000 Mitsubishi Galant V6 - I took car to Auto Zone to check problem the car would not start. To make long story short We replaced the battery, changed old starter off the car with new one , then thought that it to was bad(meaning the new 1), so returned it to store and got another. I put this one on myself this time only to find the same problem exist. The car is not starting and I have power on both sides of the starter and also the plug. what can it be? Any help will be gladly accepted.. THANKS

    Could be the ignition switch itself but it needs to be diagnosed by a technician so as to not change unnecessary parts http://repairpal.com/directory?address=29204&car_bran...

    Yes it could just be a bad connection to the ECM or its failing when it gets hot, Clean the connections and plug it back in

    Well put everything back together yesterday and played around with the little white ECM box in the fuse panel under the hood and it started, could this be the cause for the starter not working or car starting? Is this something that I can just pull out and put another back in or does it need to be programed...Thanks
