Again,
You need to replace your alternator with one that has a higher amp output rating,And maybe add an additional battery to compensate for the increase draw on the electrical system.

First you need a High Output Alternator and an Optima Battery Wired up as Extra Power to Supply the System. The System is Robbing too much power from the Battery to Run the Engine Components.

03 Mitsubishi eclipse holding back power


Youre gonna love this. when you open the hood you will see the rectangular air intake right in the front middle. there is a little plastic screw the holds the plastic air intake in place. if it is missing , once you hit about 30mph the plastic air intake will lift up and hit the underside of the hood. blocking air intake will kill all power to the engine.

Shut off while driving


Before you buy a fuel pump replacement, the cause of the shut-off may be an electrical ignition system malfunction:
