cool, either of you guys had any problems starting your car...mine wouldnt start yesterday, not cause of the battery, it sounded like the starter was just spinning or something, just a high pitched whining noise, any ideas on what it was?....btw it works fine now.
Sounds like it’s the starter solenoid to me or as Mitsubishi calls it the magnetic switch. This is the electric motor that spins the starter and pushes starter shaft into the flywheel causing the engine to turn over and start. If they start to go bad it could cause the starter not to fully engage and cause the high pitched whining sound you are hearing. But I would guess it in your starter.
That's where I would start anyway.
