2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Battery causing computer problem w/trans

My sister has a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse. When she tried to start it clicked. On the third attempt it started but when she started driving the transmission seemed to ***. The first repair shop replaced a cracked cable on the battery... Transmission still ***s. Transmission shop ran a computer check and it says no problems with transmission.... The owners manual says something about the car's computer may have to reset itself after losing power.. As in the battery issue?? any suggestions?

well the low cost way to go first would be to try and change the trans fluids. If the problems still remains the it may be an internal problem

I have a 95 Eclipse and I recently had to change out my TCU........ Transmission Control Unit, This should be located directly beneath the center console. First I would have the transmission services if problem persist then proceed to changing out the TCU you can get off of ebay. As far as i know there should be 3 Computers in our cars. 1 the Electronic Control Unit located behind radio 2 Transmission Control Unit located under center console and 3 Airbag Control Unit located under hood, Hope this helps.

You add and check the Transmision level at the dipstick location, remove the dipstick and use a funnel to add trasmission fluid, the vehicle should be running and at operating temperture as you check the fluid level for a proper reading.

Stalls when at idle after changing battery


When you changed the battery the computer must re-learn the setting again. If it continues have a OBD II reader plugged in and check for codes.

1996 mitsubishi eclipse doesn't start when turning the key. had the starter tested, it was good. all the dash lights come on like normal, but nothing happens. Battery is good and fully charged. Any ideas.


check for voltage at the small start wire on the starter when cranking the engine--you will need someone help. If there is no voltage you may have a bad neutral safety switch ,which is on the trany shifter.you have an automatic trans i assume.
If so try putting in neutral when cranking.
