Take your alternator out and take it to a local auto parts store and have them test to make sure that it is working correctly. The second issue would be that you need a better ground wire going from the battery to the engine block.

    Your brakes can be rubbing, if they are rubbing or grinding this would cause this type of a issue with some weird noise and other issues

2000 mitsubishi montero sport Ls. My car lights goes dim the speed want go past 20mph then the engine shuts off


Pull DT codes and advise but for now I would simply check charging system. It's like your battery is dying hence dim lights and inadequate voltage for engine control/

Engine turns off


Any number of problems can shut down an engine; most modern engines are designed to protect themselves by shutting down if something goes out of whack. Generally, the headlights will dim first only if the alternator is bad or the battery is dying, then shortly after that, the car will shut down.
For most other problems, the headlights won't be affected. Since your lights were not affected, I would first look to see if a code was set, then look for a fuel delivery problem, overheating or low oil pressure. Then move on to more esoteric components.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

93 nissan pathfinder charging problems


check for voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see 14 plus volts. Now turn on the lights, bower motor, and whatever else you can to put the maximum draw on the battery. If the voltage drops below 13 volts the alternator is bad.

Issue with dash lights dimming while driving,


If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Dim interior lights, power locks wont work......


Try looking at your battery. Check the cables to make sure they are tight and clean. Brush the corrosion off with a wire brush. Now, if you have a wiring schematic, find the ground for the interior lights and clean it up too. Oh, put vasoline on it, and the battery cables, to keep them corrosion free. Check the other grounds in the car cabin too.

This may be a silly question, but I was just wondering by any chance, if I could make the inside door light in my 2003 Hyundai Elantra GT, dim when shutting the door while the engine is running also?...


what/which inside door light are you talking about?... the DOME light? I could help if I was certain of what you were talking about. Tell you what, Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.
