1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 160000 miles
The battery light keeps coming on and the battery drains until dead while running. I have replaced the alternator and had the battery tested, replaced both belts, replaced main ground to battery, fusible links and fuses visually good. Sometimes the battery light will stay off and I can tell the battery is being charged because the lights on the dash will brighten up. Then out of no where the dash lights will dim and the battery light will come on, then 5 or so miles down the road the dash lights will brighten back up and I will turn the key off and then on again and the battery light will stay off. So sometimes the battery will be getting charged and sometimes not. Then there are days like today where I am sitting home from work because the battery is totally dead because the battery has'nt charged in 2 days. Sometimes it will charge just fine for two or three days, then nothing at all. Everytime I try something new it seems to work for about 2-3 days and then this starts all over again. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
