1997 MITS. MIRAGE CHARGING SYSTEM PROBLEM

I have a 1997 mits. mirage, I have a charging system problem, The car shakes and shutters, headlights and all electronic components flash in and out, then the car shuts off. I have a new alternator, and the battery test was good. I have checked for corrsion, loose, missing, and broken wires. I have checked the fuseable links. Nothing seems out of place but i cant find the problem. I was wondering if anyone has any good advice?

Thanks

SOURCE: Mits Mirage 1995, window stuck the motor runs, what to do?

those vehicles use a cable drive system, there is no quick fix, you just have to replace the regulator and motor assembly, just remove the door panel, unbolt the regulator from the window, remove the assembly from the door, and replace, should be no alignment or adjustment nesessary. you may be able to get the regulator without the motor, but trust me, it is worth it to do both together

SOURCE: How to remove the door panel of a Mits Mirage 1995?

If you have manual window cranks, you'll have to remove that. It's easiest to slide a rag down behind the crank and move the rag back and forth a few times. This will snag the clamp that holds the crank on. It's also possible that the crank might screw on also. If this is the case, there will be a cover that will pop off of the crank handle, revealing a screw. If you have power windows, try looking around the inside door handle. It's possible that there's a screw that you're missing in that area also. If there are no more screws of bolts holding it on, then it's just a matter of breaking free the little plastic clips that hold it to the door frame. Don't get discouraged if you break a couple of them...they're available in the "Help" section of any auto parts store for about $3/pack. Hope this helps solve your problem. Have a great day!

SOURCE: 2002 mits mirage, squeals like

Belts are in great shape. The condition of the belts doesnt always tell you it will squeak. Look at the belts with the engine running, one of them is sure to have a little vibration due to slippage, have that belt tightened up. Alternatively, before you even start the engine press against the belts with your fingers to test the belt tension to see how far you can push the belt in, it should not give very much, if it is a littlte baggy(moves more than 1/4 inch re tighten it
