my '04 lancer rally wont start


Asked by Dec 13, 2013 at 03:51 PM about the 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my lancer doesn't start, for a few days it would struggle to turn over and wouldnt start right
away, tried jumping it, disconnecting/reconnecting the battery, which triggered the alarm
and now wont start and the alarm wont turn off, i've pulled the fuse for it out from under the
hood and the sounds stopped going off but the lights still flash, and i've also noticed that
my gas gauge doesnt move even after i had put gas in the tank, how do i fix this?

try locking and unlocking the doors with your key.. if that don't work consult your alarm manual on how to disengage the alarm, if its a stock alarm it should still be in the owners manual


i forgot to mention i didnt get the remote for the alarm when i got the car since we bought it from a family friend
