Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante
Check the small power wire that hooks to the back of the alternator to see that it is getting 12-volts when you turn the key on.
Because your car is so dependent on the battery, all cars have a battery light on the dashboard that is designed to warn you if the recharging system fails. A simple circuit looks at the voltage that the alternator is producing, and turns the battery light on if it is low. The battery light indicates a battery charging problem. If the battery light comes on and stays on while you are driving, the most common cause is a broken alternator belt. Total failure of the alternator is another possibility. and for brake lights problem:-- This light of course is used to indicate a problem with the braking system. Depending on its sensitivity, it could simply mean that your break pads are wearing thin, you can check this by removing your front tire and checking the condition, thickness of the pads on either side. Other thing to check is the switch under the brake is just out of adjustment or loose. As per the procedure :--You mentioned that you have to jump start.Tat means that battery has lost its charge.So first get the battery charge and voltage checked.If its low then get it charged.Then drive your car for few hours and re-check the charge.If its loosing the charge after driving the faulty part is alternator.Quickly get the alternator voltage checked.But if in case alternator checked ok then its confirm problem of your battery.But still before going for new battery check the wires connected to battery and alternator.
