Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Ok so my problem is everytime i start my car its reving low and kind of stutters. when i turn my lights on or use my power windows the car almost shuts off. The stereo turns on and off. I tested the battery at auto zone but it passed. A friend said it could be the alternater but i want another opinion.
Theres a simple solution to check if it is your alternator. turn you car on and remove the negative terminal from your battery. if your car shuts off then it is your alternator but if it stays on then your alternator may not be the problem. this is a little trick my father showed me. you still might want to go get the car looked at

Keep it idling a little bit high about 1000 and remove the +ve terminal from the battery if went down then you have to check the alternator if it keeps on idling turn the headlights on (high beam ) if it stops then again you need to check the alternator if keeps on idling then alternator is ok
