Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

2 Answers

Could it be the altinator

I drive a mitshbishi charisma. Got into it today and it just wouldnt go. Got someone to jump start it. It went but the power steering seized up on me especially when i turned the corner. It then begins to fade out again and then stops. I really need it fixed for work.

Make sure that you have a fan belt on the power steering and a fan belt on the alternator,if there are no belts nothing will work properlly

I have a link that explains how you may have blown a fuse while jump starting your HHR.

It states that using the junction box under the hood to jump start can blow your electronic power steering fuse. It says it is a 60 Amp fuse.

Killed then we jumped started it it went about 2 miles and killed again. we jump started it again,got it running as soon as we took the jumper cables off the running car it killed


if you have a bad altinator it will drain your battery causing the enguine to stop running. and if you killed the car that was jumping it then i def would get the altinator tested on both cars as jumping a car with a bad altinator can cause charging issues on the car doing the jumping.

Lost power while driving


hi if your altinator went bad then when you jump it, it will start then die once the juice has ben used in the battery,it sounds like your altinator has gone bad.get a jump and remove the posative battery terminal when the car is running.if it dies instantly your altinator is bad.
