I have a 2001 mitsubishi mirage. Today when I went to start my car after I dropped my so off at grand moms it would not crank. Just a click as if the battery was dead. So I take the battery to auto zone to get tested and it tested good. So I assume its the starter. When I connect the battery back. I put the key in the ignition I hear the ding ding sound I always hear. I go to start the engine and just click again. I try to do it again but this time no ding ding sound when I put the key in the ignitions. Remind you that before I took the battery to auto zone the first time it did the same thing with the ding ding as I describe earlier. Also the heads lights won't come on or the horn blows. There is now power comming to the car. What do you think?

Inspect battery terminals and connections to ensure they are tight and free of any corrosion. Starter would not cause no power to headlights and other accessories. Your vehicle's charging system needs to be tested if battery connections are OK. Once charging system wiring and components are tested and if tested OK, inspect ignition relay and ignition switch.

Let me know results of tests and I will follow up.
