Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante
My 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante was dead last week. My friend helped me jump start it and it worked so I drove around for about 20 minutes. I didn't drive it for 6 days because I had to go back to school away from home so my car was sitting in the garage. I come back and the car is dead again?? Why?? Is it a bad battery or what? Please help!!!
Charge it all the way up. Then take it to a auto parts store and get the battery and starter and alternator tested.

The easiest thing to do is to check the generator. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage across the battery terminals while the car is running. You should get a reading of approximately 14.9 volts which means the gererator is working. With the engine off, check the battery voltage, it should be 12 volts. if it reads less (say 9 or 10 volts), the battery is not holding the charge and needs to be replaced. Also make sure you have good CLEAN TIGHT connections between the battery terminals and the leads. Sometimes a loose connection or oxidation between the terminals and the connector causing a poor connection is to blame.

Interesting as I just started having a similar problem. AAA said thre is a slow drain on the battery (which is only 6 months old). We can hear a very high pitch sound under the hood which may be part of it, but have no idea yet as to what it is.
