    Now you need a repair shop that is really good at finding the cause of your current drain. Simply don't have a common thing that applies to your vehicle or able to guess without having it to do some testing. Sorry



1 Answer

Why wouldn't you have had the current drain diagnosed
to find out the problem?

Was the Alternator tested & found to be bad or either
battery found to be bad

We can't guess from the internet

The vehicle should have been properly
diagnosed & resolved long ago.

There are 300 or more people on this site a day,
who apparently don't know how to find any repair
shops or dealers that can resolve anything at all

  • Hi, I can help.

  • Open the door and look on the inside of the door where the mirror mounts from the outside. Often times Mitsubishi's mirror access panel is behind a corner of the door panel and it is just a little corner piece that pops off.
  • Follow these steps ---
  1. You will either see some screws right away or a little panel that will have a screw to remove (some of then you just gently pry off with a flat tool. If no screws the gently pry off.)
  2. Now you will see a wire harness that is coming down from the mirror. Gently lift it up until the connect is reached.
  3. Remove the connector and don't let it drop down. Anchor with a little duck tape.
  4. Now you will see three nuts that need to be removed ( I think 13mm ).
  5. Make sure you support the mirror as you are removing the last bolt.
  6. Now wiggle and jiggle the mirror out and pay attention so the harness comes out freely with it.
  7. It's a basic reversal to install the new mirror.

The easiest thing to do is to check the generator. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage across the battery terminals while the car is running. You should get a reading of approximately 14.9 volts which means the gererator is working. With the engine off, check the battery voltage, it should be 12 volts. if it reads less (say 9 or 10 volts), the battery is not holding the charge and needs to be replaced. Also make sure you have good CLEAN TIGHT connections between the battery terminals and the leads. Sometimes a loose connection or oxidation between the terminals and the connector causing a poor connection is to blame.

SOURCE: i have changed my battery 3 times and it keeps going dead

Did they test the output only, 13.5 to 14v if it was all that was tested there are two other possibilitys that the alternator needs testing for Voltage regulation which will fry a battery (over charge and cells collapse)or the diodes have failed which will flatten a battery overnight.

04 Avalanche 3rd battery in 6 to 8 months wont stay charged???

batteries will self discharge over a period of time especially in cold weather
however 3 batteries replaced in 6 months raises issues
first question is why would they not charge up on a charger or a run in the vehicle
second question is the battery of sufficient size to run the electronics
have you had the alternator bench tested to check for correct out put, regulator operation and rectifier problems
check drive belt condition and tension
the wire could be a ground wire but I would think that if it is significant then something would not be working correctly

Battery keeps draining already put in a brand new alletantor and brattery still draining and battery lights comes on and truck won't start

You would have checked the charging system before replacing the alternator, so I will assume the charging system is good.
If the battery is being discharged overnight or over a few days, you would need to disconnect it and check every circuit on the truck to find the drain.

I have a H3 hummer but my truck battery keep going dead and my battery is new and alternator is good

The batteries they put in the trucks from the factory ****. I went through 3 of them under warranty, they lasted 6 months a piece.

I did research to find who made the factory model. I found an alternative manufacture and bought their battery and I have not had a problem sense. I bought a Duralast from auto zone.

How do you reset change oil light on mitsubishi outlander

Turn the key off.

Press the "Info" button on the left of the dash cluster until your maintenance miles/months screen is displayed.

Press and hold the "info" button until the maintenance screen begins flashing.

Release the "info" button and then push and hold it it for one second.

Your Maintenance intervals should reset to +6 months and +7500 miles since the last interval amount.

Note that if you have not reset it for more than one interval, you may need to do it more than once. If you have not done it for many intervals, you may need to have it reset with the scantool at a dealer, as I have run into a handful of vehicles that the oil change reminder locked up after 3-4 "intervals" were skipped/not reset.

New battery but car dies

See if you can find someone with a multimeter and hook it up to battery, to see what voltage it reads before you try to start it, then write it down.Now boost it or whatever you have to do to get it running, and check voltage & record it with engine running. Voltage should be higher when engine running, approx 13.5 or 14 volts as compared to 12-12.5 when not running. If no increase, you have an alternator problem most likely. Let me know what you find.

Alternater trouble Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003

I have had the exact problem. I've changed altenator 3 times also and it has the same leak, but I've changed altenator an batterys over 2 year span. It just happend to me today after not driving it for 5 months. It's been in storage while I was away. Drive it fine for 2 days but today the radio kept shutting off and finally the car died right in the middle of the road. Bought a new battery because I had a warranty on last battery, but bought it just to get it home and in the driveway. Did you ever find out what was wrong with it?
