I have a 2001 eclipse that runs for 3 seconds and then dies. Originally it showed mass air flow sensor fault, CTS fault and cam position sensor fault. All 3 of those were changed but it did not correct the issue. Runs for 3 seconds and then dies....
The battery was changed because it was a little weak, the starter has been changed only because it was under warranty. It was thought that the timing belt might be out of position so it was changed as was the water pump while we were in there...but it still does the same thing...runs 3 seconds and dies.

Re: 2001 Eclipse Sign In

Are those codes still coming back?
Two things you need to check

Check for any security indicator like a flashing LED

Test the fuel pressure using an accurate gauge.

No the codes do not come back.

I will get the fuel pressure tested.

It may be small and it may be way up on top of the dash or near the radio.
