Fix ignition no start issue

For people that have been having the rare issue where you turn the ignition to start the car and starter just clicks (brand new starter, good battery, and ground) , you have to do this 3-5 times and it would finally start, this is your fix below.

I was having this issue as well so Friday replaced the ignition switch inside the steering column, fixed the issue, $40 part took 20 mins to do

Start with disconnecting negative battery cable, otherwise you will have airbag light,
removing the steering wheel, steering column covers, clock spring, steering hub and connectors,
The ignition switch is on left side of steering column, only 2 screws hold it in place.
Replace then reinstall system

Hey,

Fantastic guide.

I just went to get a mechanical fitness done and the mechanic says i need to change the ignition cylinder. It is a 2011 Eclipse 3.8L V6 M/T

It seems the dealership is sold out. Do you know if the automatic ignition cylinder is the same? different part numbers are listed but there is no visual difference.

Thanks Colten!
Great job!

I need to do this. I was thinking it was the clutch pedal switch, but havent tried replacing it yet. I'll try this one first then the clutch pedal switch if needed.

Did you get it from Mitsubishi for $40?

Rock Auto has them for $21.00 and under. Looks like its the same for V6.
Not sure about auto or manual though.

I think we get a club4g discount through rockauto too.; )

I think the part # is MR235638
