2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 85000 miles
Ok, well my battery died one day. We got a new alternator on it and a new battery. Before I did that though I tried to jumpstart it and the cables were on bckwards. Well I noticed once I got in the car and the interior wa ll lit up. THey were on there for about 15 seconds. Well I blew an accessory fuse and got that changed. But now when I turn my headlghts on, turn signals on, or my AC fan; my temp gauge shoots up. Even when the car is off and they key is in the on position, if I mess with the lights or turn signals, my temp gauge does the same thing. I assume it is a short or something. I checked all the fuses, everything looks good. Also if I am driving and turn the ac on for a little bit the car bogs down like it is running on a couple cylinders, but if I turn it off the car runs normal. Very stange. I have taken it to a few dealerships, they just rip me off over $1000 and still is not fixed. They fixed the thermostat, housing, tube and the 120 amp fuse that is by my battery. I keep trying to tell them it is something electrical they just don't listen. PLEASE HELP!
have the same problem?
