Well not being able to see and test the vehicle it leaves me a couple of guess's which you will need to check out.

So you changed the battery ,, ?? was it dead ?? and the alternator ?

check the ground connection leading of the battery terminal to the cars body ensure its connected properly, there should also be a connection to the engine.

check the positive lead wire to the fuse box.

to test this easing (connect a voltage meter a. ground to cars body, b. pos to battery terminal)

if the wiring is fine then the only other possible thing is the MAIN FUSE. this fuse is located in the fuse box and is eighter an 80 amp, 90 amp or 100 amp fuse. open the fuse box and look at where the main battery wire connects you should see the use there. its bolted in place. or simply check the diagram under the fuse box cover.

Other than that its the car battery which you said you replaced and it still didnt work. So again recap
check wiring off battery to cars body, engine and fuse box,
check main fuse.

your problem has to be 1 of the 2 of them.

wow if your battery is that old i would get a different one but you can have the battery and alternator tested for free at a auto parts store they can tell you if its junk or not but thats why your having them problems when your alternater spins it charges the battery if the battery is no good it wont hold a charge and you car will die now it the alternater is bad it will not keep the battery charged and your car will die.

95 lumina turn signals


make sure you replaced the correct directional light relay, and not the hazard relay. Check all fuses. check grounds at rear lights. If all of the following are good, your lumina would have a faulty multifunction switch.

Alternater trouble Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003


I have had the exact problem. I've changed altenator 3 times also and it has the same leak, but I've changed altenator an batterys over 2 year span. It just happend to me today after not driving it for 5 months. It's been in storage while I was away. Drive it fine for 2 days but today the radio kept shutting off and finally the car died right in the middle of the road. Bought a new battery because I had a warranty on last battery, but bought it just to get it home and in the driveway. Did you ever find out what was wrong with it?
