Mitsubishi Lancer SE won't start

Asked by Sep 15, 2016 at 08:44 AM about the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer SE AWD. The car randomly won't start,
sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't start I have
to get a boost and then it runs fine. It makes no sound when I turn the key.
I can go a week with no problems then out of nowhere it just won't start. I
had the battery and alternator checked and both are in excellent condition
and my mechanic says everything with the car is good. I change the oil
regularly and take it in for regular maintenance so I'm really not sure what
the issue is. I'm not mechanically inclined so any help would be greatly
appreciated!

Remove the battery cables (from the battery) and clean them with baking soda and water. This will neutralize the corrosion. I'll bet you can find a friend to do this. Have the battery tested at a local auto parts store.
