1994 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual
My car recently died, I jump started it and put a volt meter on it and realized the alternator was not charging. I took it off and had it tested at 2 different places, it failed at both. I replaced it, and started the car back up, put the meter on it alternator was charging. Was fine overnight, started up in the morning went about my business. I stopped, played a round of golf, 5 hours later, car wouldn't start. Jumped it it started up, I figured since the battery was drained a few times, plus it was old, and I live in arizona, the battery was toast. Replaced the battery, started up fine, put a volt meter on it again, alternator was charging it still. Went to start it this morning, and it won't start. There is some sort of electrical drain on the system.
Is their a good place to start chasing this. I don't have alot of cash to throw at this, but I'm good with cars and electronics, I know how the systems work, just not sure where to start looking on this car. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
