1992 Mitsubishi Diamante won't start

I have a 1992 mitsubishi diamante. I just replaced the battery in it and it would start great. But now I try to start it and it won't start. Is the battery being drained by the alternator? cuz when I jump it. It starts and When i let it charge..I can shut it off and start it again, but I go to start it the next day and it won't start. Any Solutions? I really need to get this running so I can drive to and from school as well as my newly acqured job.

    Not even the lights come on. The car is dead as if not connected to a battery. The battery is new and it did start on its own for about a week. Then I leave it alone for about a week, come back and now nothing electronic works, I jumped it once and let it charge a bit thinking I accidently left lights on. It seemed to work. The next day I open the door and nothing is on and it won't start.

    You need to check if any lights were left on when you have a good battery, not once the battery has worn down

    If you did not get a good deep charge on the battery when it ran down, then it probably ran down after sitting a week with what little charge it had, on top of whatever may have run it down in the first place.

    When checking if lights were left on, this is best done at night, with all the doors closed.

    Check that all the interior lights are going off when the doors are closed.

    Listen to see if you hear anything operating inside or outside of the car when the key is off and nothing is supposed to be running. It could be the cooling fan relay (if electric fans) is bad.

    The alternator will not use any power when the key is removed.

2002 mitsubishi diamante won't start, it sounds like it's trying really hard, after about 7 or 8 times it will barely start, try to drive and it stalls out.


Check your fuel system: From might be dirty: Spark plug, Fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel injector, EGR and your high voltage and also your distributor check it also. Some the computer box faulty..

I have a 1992 mitsubishi diamonte it seems something is draining the battery and ive tried everything could it be the stock alarm if so how do i disable it?


I had this exact same problem about 6 months agov with my 92 diamante, and thought it was also the alarm...but that wasnt it. that was one of the signs that my starter was beginning to go out. you may want to start there. mine did it for about 3 months before it finally decided that it was ready to die. its a 150 dollar part, or at least it was for me.
