2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 77,000 miles
About two weeks ago, I drove my car and it was fine. About an hour later, it was dead. There was very little power and then as I tried to start it a couple of times, it went completely dead. I took it to NTB because I thought I just needed a battery. They told me my battery was fine and that I needed a new alternator. I had the altetrnator done and then a week later the same thing happened. I took it back to NTB and this time they told me that it was my battery. I had the battery changed and low and behold, exactly one week later (today) my car was dead. First I need to know what could possibly be wrong with my car and second, if my car is still dying do you think that it could have been the alternator/battery? I would like my money back from NTB. It was over $500.00. If I repaired something that was really wrong that's okay but if these repairs were unecessary, then I want a refund. Please tell me whatever you can. Oh, my battery makes a ticking sound when it has died or is dying. I don't know if that means anything. If you need more info, please let me know.
