    I have a 96 Probe that I have the same problem with. But the terminals and the cables to the battery are all new and no corrosion , and they are not loose at all. I lose all power to a fully charged battery in less than a hour. I have ran out of ideas of what to look for.

Die battery


sounds like you just need a new battery... if the car starts when you're charging, the starter is most likely just using the power from the charger (or the charging battery). And if it continues to run once you've started it, then the alternator is fine.

It's possible that when you installed the new lamp socket that you created a short in the battery, or that the battery is just old and needs replacing... but replacing it is definitely where i would start.

STALLS WHEN BATTERY CABLE IS PULLED GOOD ALTENATER AND BATTERY


If the vehicle stalls when you pull the battery cable loose from the battery the alternator can not be good because the car would stay running. You have an issue with the charging system, Possible voltage regulator which is in the alternator. Have the alternator taken of the van and tested a the parts house.

Car keeps cutting off while driveing also missng


I have a 1989 Probe LX and I had a problem that felt like vapor lock... it was cutting out and driving real slugish with a huge loss of power. My mechanic played around with it and found way too much exhaust back pressure. He replaced the exhaust pipe from the manifold to the tailpipe and that fixed the problem, which turned out to be the catalytic converter rusting out and it collaped on the inside, blocking off most of the exhaust before it could go out the tailpipe. expensive problem solved, car runs great now!
