Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

2 Answers

I have a 2002 Lancer ES, and have been having a re-occuring problem since Oct. of 2010. My battery dies. I have had 3 alternators and 3 batteries since the start of this. The last time it was worked on I was told there's an electrical short they (Pep Boys)can't find, but they thought it was my dome light; turns out it's not becuase I've left it off and my battery just died again. This makes about 10 times in about 6 months. I'm at my wit's end with this!

I have a lancer es 2010 model with cvt auto I left it in drive handbrake on turned it off when I went to leave it wont shift to reverse or park only neutral and drive can you help


Is the battery up to par? Even though you got the key out(bad lock set), You left everything on. Drained the battery to less than 8 volts. Many things work at 8 volts, but many things don't.

Check your belts if they are damaged or if they fell off!! Your drive belts may have loosened or they're worn, causing the A/C and alternator to die. This in turn will result in gradual to immediate power loss. If you have more info...please post!!

2002 mitsubishi lancer won't start Ok so my car started making a loud screeching noise when it would start up, and then a few days later I drained my battery on accident listening to music in the...


When a car battery gets low, the windows won't necessarily move extremely slow - you may still have functionality, but not enough power to start the vehicle. Charge up the battery or replace it if it is more than 4-5 yrs old. As for the screeching sound, its possible a loose alternator belt could cause that - if the belt is too loose the alternator might not be charging the battery properly. Another possibility is the alternator is binding and that can cause the screeching too. Remove the drive belt and try to rotate the alternator by hand - if there is excessive resistance you might be looking at a new alternator too. Most automotive parts stores will test your battery and charging system for free if you ask them.

I bought a new Tucson 2006. The battery died in Oct 2009 and I replaced it, died again in May 2010, I replaced it, died again in Oct 2010 and I replaced it. Jan 10, 2010 it has obviously died again. ...


If the battery was made in china, Which walmart likes to buy from, I would go to another store and get one that will work for more than a couple of months. PS Don't get one from autozone either.

Run the car, then disconnect the negative pole on the battery, then the positive pole.

If the car keeps running then your new alternator is working properly.

If your car stops then your new alternator is bad.
