A hard or no start condition with fault codes P0335 and/or P0340 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) may be due to abnormal wear of the camshaft position sensor support. Our technicians tell us a revised sensor support is available to correct this issue.

My 2005 Lancer ES has problem starting about 30% of the time. I would turn the key and nothing would happen except the running lights dims. No clicking, no sound at all. I would have to adjust the key slightly and try again. The process might have to be repeated 3-4 times before it starts. This occurs more when the engine is hot (like running around town with frequent stops).

The car will not start 25% of the time. When this occurs it will be fine in the ACC key position and the second I go to the ON position all dash lights turn off and the car goes dead(I even have to reset my radio head unit). If I wait a few second and try again it will start right up, except on hot days and sometimes it will take a few tries.

Won't start. Hear clicking noise when trying to start the car.I thought it is the starter But mechanic said it is fuel or electronic problem. Still trying to resolve the problem. Wish me luck.

The only way to start the car is to jump start it n press the gas repeatedly n sometimes even then it don't start

Car is hard to start or won't start. When running car runs fine. Codes p0302 which is miss fire cylinder 2 and code p0421 which is low cat temps. Removed and replaced plugs verified spark from coils changed up stream o2 sensor and verified fuel pump is work and engine has compression. My only thought is its either the cam sensor or a dirty mass air flow sensor
