SOURCE: Charging system

change your battery cables and check all wires on the alternator for loose connections, expecially the grounds.

Stecorbett:

May I suggest that you drive your car to one of the major auto stores and they can and will check your alternator for you to make sure it is good/bad.These places like AutoZone do this all the time. They do not charge for the check out. (Of course they are hoping that if you need a part you will buy it from them.

One other suggestion. If you do need a new alternator, get a rebuilt one. It is cheaper and most always comes with a warranty.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please take a moment to give me a rating

you don't hit the alternator, you hit the starter to help is shake free because it is already going bad. take battery and alternator to parts store and have both tested. check the wires at the starter and make sure they are on SECURELY. very important SOLID CONTACT is occurring. do your lights turn on? check starter relay if the eclipse is equipped with one.

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

Well you hit all the major ones, could be crank position sensor, ignition module, a bad coil pack (it should have 3), you need to check that you have spark to each plug while the engine is turning over (!!!be careful as this will hurt if you get shocked!!!), this will rule out coil packs. if you have no spark to any plug your looking at a bad ingnition module (which is what the coil packs bolt to). Hope this gets you on the right track!

My son's '99 2.0 eclipse keeps stalling on him. runs good for a bit then just dies. battery is good. Alternator and starter are new. help if you can. tnx


time to have the battery , alternator tested by an accredited auto electrical shop
batteries test good but fail if a load tester is used and having to jump start it indicates that the battery is not good
If there is not enough power available to run the ECM then it will die when the battery voltage drops below required voltage
the fact that ir runs for a while and dies indicates that the alternator is not producing sufficient power to run the battery and the ECM again indicating a bad battery

It starts one day then next it dont ..changes the battery and alternator


make sure the battery terminals are solid and secure. if the car loses all power and doesnt even crank, its the battery, if the car shows the battery sign it could be the alternator.

I have a 1990 Volvo 240 recently the car started to die at random times while driving. When it dies all the dash lights come on can't start it for a bit afterwards. I replaced the battery and it seemed...


  • This is classic of your alternator going bad. Sometimes, when it first begins to go bad it will function on and off. Soon it just stops charging the battery all together. The battery has one function and that is to start the car. Then the alternator is ran by the belt and charges the battery and in effect runs the car. The reason for the lights coming on is the power fail in the car.
  • Buying a new battery worked for a short time because the fresh battery ran the car but with no alternator to charge the battery the car soon died again.
  • The fix is to replace the alternator. Do it soon or even that new battery will go bad from being drained so much.

My car started dying and now hasnt enough charge to start


sound like bad battery cables.replace them.the positive battery cable is old and have a lot of resistance not allowing power to the alternator to charge battery.if battery cable good check alternator connector wires.make sure they are not damage also check alternator fuse and fuse link.turn off radio before removing battery wires so you wont lose radio code.

Alternator & battery test good...alternator is not charging bat.


1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse

You have several choices;
) You can get the alternator check at an auto parts store. Most do it free. You will have to take it off.
) You can get the entire charging system check at Sears. The checkup is free.

Alternator and battery issue


Did you fully charge your battery before you ran the new alternator? If not, the alternator is damaged and will have to be replaced.

If your battery has a dead cell it definitely destroyed your new alternator.

Do you have a voltmeter. Do you know how to measure battery voltage?
