Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

FUSE My daughter was rear ended & now the trunk is pushed in causing the light in the trunk to stay on & raining the battery. I want to pull the fuse out so the light in the trunk will be disconnected, but am not sure which fuse it is. Can you tell me either the location on the fuse box for the trunk light? or atleast the amps (?) of the fuse so I can narrow it down?

It will most likely be the courtesy light fuse, or it may be marked interior lights, it will most likely be 15 amp.

2002 dodge intrepid the rear defrost button light is always on my car battery wouldnt stay charged so I took the defrost relay out the light is still on but my car stayed charged next day no charge


Dear Deseree,
I would like to suggest you are on the right track.
Next, try to find the fuse for the rear defroster, and try pulling that. That light may be a lit because of the "instruments" fuse, and if you pull that one, your instruments may stop working.
Fuses are both under the dashboard and also in a black plastic box under the hood of the car near a fender.
I might suggest there are 3 more common things that can cause the battery to drain.
1) a short in the alternator can cause this problem.
2) a short in the ignition switch, and
3) a short in the computer itself.
God bless your efforts.

My battery has been checked and is fine, but the battery will go dead within approximately 48 hours if the car is not started and run. I checked all of the draw from the battery on each fuse and the #9...


TO CHECK FOR A BATTERY DRAIN. TURN OFF EVERY SWITCH IN THE CAR. CLOSE THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT. MAKE SURE THE LITE IN THERE IS GOING OUT. OPEN THE HOOD CLOSE ALL OF THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL OF THE COURTESY LIGHTS ARE GOING OUT. DISCONNECT ANY UNDER HOOD LIGHTS. DISCONNECT NEG. BATTERY CABLE. USE A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, FASTEN ONE END TO THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL, FASTEN THE OTHER END TO A METAL PART OF THE MOTOR. IF THE LIGHT COMES ON, THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. NO LIGHT, NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON, PULL EACH FUSE, BIG & SMALL, ONE AT A TIME, OUT OF THE FUSEBOX THAT IS NEAR THE BATTERY. WHICHEVER FUSE MAKES THE LIGHT GO OUT IS CAUSING THE DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON THROUGHOUT THE FUSE PULLING, DISCONNECT THE ALTERNATOR. IF THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG IN THE ALTERNATOR, IT CAN DRAIN THE BATTERY WHILE SITTING STILL, EVEN THOUGH IT IS CHARGING THE BATTERY WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING. GOOD LUCK

I have a 2004 Suzuki Forenza, the interior lights don't work, trunk release button don't work, windshield washer don't work. What could of caused this? If it is the fuse then which one. Help!


I have a 2004 Forenza. Don't know about the washer. The 15A fuse marked "I/P" next to the "Fuel Pump" fuse in the main relay center under the hood disables my trunk release and interior lights.
Found this out because the battery started to drain and die within a week. Several mechanics/electricians looked at it but couldn't figure out why. One pulled out that fuse and now the battery holds up fine. Problem is I don't have the use of the interior lights or trunk release.
Does anyone know what the cause of the battery drain is? Has something ground out? Btw, I got a small shock the last time I played with that fuse. Not sure if that's a sign of anything.

2002 PT Cruiser will not hold charge.


It sounds like you have a bad diode trio in the altanator. to test remove the belt off the altanator then turn the key on and see if the fan on the altanator spins if it does thats your problem. If not then get a 12 volt test light and remove the negitive battery post and put one end of the lead on the battery and the other on the cable. with everything off does it light up? Yes? then make sure the glove box light is not on, or remove it for a few days and see if the problem goes away if it does you have solved your problem. you can test it with the glove box light out with the test light. If the light stays on you can pull one fuse at a time to see if you pull a fuse it goes out. if it goes out with pulling a fuse then you have found the problem with the circut giving you the problem, after you loctae the fuse take it to a shop and tel them the fuse that stops the light from being on. If you need more help post here.

I have a replaced the battery three times on a 1995 Toytoa Corolla. I thought it was the alternator but it is charging. If I don't drive the car for a couple of days it drains the battery. Have taken the...


To do this test you will need a 12 volt test light. Call around to some auto parts stores to see who has one. (Napa, Advance,ect.)Take the positive battery cable off the battery.Connect one end of the light to the battery (clip end) connect the other end (pointed end) to the pos. cable.
The light will light up if some thing is on. One at a time pull out each fuse and see if the light goes out. Put the fuse back in and go to the next fuse.Hope fully your fuse box has a label on it that tells you what each fuse is for.
Right down the one or ones that keep the light on. This will be the circuit that you need to check out.This will narrow down the search.See whats on that circuit and check it out. In an older car with no problems the light stays out. How ever, the newer cars keep things like radio clock on.
Keep your door shut to kill the interior light.
This will give you a place to start.
I hope this helps you.

Clk top will not go back up seems dead..all fuses checked


It is normal for the roll bar to rise when top is down. It seems like the rear valance cover is not secured and the soft op does not understand what position it is in. There is a way to manually close top. it is stated in your owners manual. also I would try to close top with button(assuming your vehicle will start and the battery has good voltage) start car and try to operate top down and try pushing on rear cover also make sure the retractable cover in trunk is extended to compress operation switch

Battery goes dead after car sits for 3-4 days


Parasitic drain? If so, did they run a test light on the negative terminal? Unhook the negative battery cable, run a test light between the negative battery post and the negative (removed) cable end. Does the light come on? If so, remove each fuse, one at a time, when you hit the circuit that is draining, the light will go off.

I have a 95 Buick Roadmaster and it was doing the same thing. It was a broken light in the trunk, the bulb was out, but the electricity was still there. The wire became damaged when my daughter overloaded the trunk. Just a couple of ideas...
