my car died suddenly on the highway, wont start now. 2002 manual eclipse 125000 miles,

Asked by Dec 12, 2014 at 09:04 AM about the Mitsubishi Eclipse

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

engine light came on two weeks ago i had it plugged in and all that came up was a bad
spark plug wire which made sense as it had started to misfire a week prior to that. I dont
hear the fuel pump engaging when i turn the key, also had a belt squeal when wet out or if  
i stopped at a light with the heat or air on. Had it towed last night, any info would be
helpful!

are your battery contacts tight and clean

yes, all electrical still works, battery relatively new, all connections are newer as well

A coil going bad can cause misfire problems. When it dies, so does the car. If you have access to a multimeter there are instructions on the web on how to check a coil.
