Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Few days ago car was running and died, and tried to restart and the battery eventually died, tried a few times to have car jumped and it wouldn't turn over, cleaned battery posts and connections of corrosion had battery checked and and recharged car still wouldn't turn over, tried to use friends high performance battery  still wouldn't turn over, replaced battery connections and checked fuel pressure was good, it's 5 speed 96 RS and tried pushing it and it wouldn't start up, stuck and not sure if any tips before I pay to have it towed to Mitsubishi and checked which will be costly and may even be just a sensor, any tips or other things i should check?

If the battery is good, then you need to look into your ignition system, maybe you have a short/ground somewhere, or a fuel issue. Do you hear the fuel pump priming when you turn the key?

Yeah the fuel pressure was there and it would prime it just wouldn't seem to start/ignite

you have a short in your starter wire okay do this run a wire from the pos on the battery to thee starter and try it if it starts you know the prblem
