My check engine and battery light came on in my 96 eclispe. In the morning , i would have to constantly re-crank ant press on the gas to keep it running. I was downshifting to 2nd gear one morning and Check engine and battery light was on for a couple of days. In the morning I would have to re-crank and press the gas to keep it running, because it would constantly cut off. One morning I was downshifting to 2nd gear and the car cut-off while I was driving. The crank sensor has been replaced, but it still wont start. A mechanic suggested it may be the computer. What are your suggestions?
