I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2.0 non-turbo. At times it will not start. Turn the key and only clicks. Was told the battery was no good so replaced it. Starts occasionally but not all the time. Starter checked out ok. I am thinking it might be the switch on the clutch as when it does not start if I play with the clutch a few minutes more than a few at times it will start. Odd looking switch not sure how it works. Thinking it was going to be a normal type switch but was surprised it was a metal cannister type. Could you explain how this works and if it could be causing the problem I am experiencing? Seems to be an easy fix as it appears I can remove the clip on the clutch and it shpuld slid off. Is that the case?
