Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Mirage
Mitsubishi uses a square block fuse for its alternator . Usually it is under the hood in the fuse box , sometimes it is part of the positive battery clamp. If this fuse blows even though the battery is good and the alternator is working perfectly, the battery will discharge and the charge light on the dash will not tell you. You will drive until the battery goes dead and the car stops. Take a flash light and check all the fuses under the hood till you find the block fuse for the alternator. If it is blown , replace it and your problem should be solved. It is real easy to blow the fuse if you short the power at the back of the alternator to ground ( an alternator installation, where the battery cable is not unhooked).
