Having problems with your 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse ?
Got new head gasket installed-not related to prob.after that bat.went dead,new bat and alt. still drains bat overnight. could it be a short in starter?
Check the main alternator fuse. It is either a block fuse in the fuse box under the hood or it is built into the positive battery terminal. If it is blown your battery will not charge even though everything else is in perfect working order and the alternator light(charge light) on the dash will not light up to tell you there is a problem. You will drive a short distance and the battery will go dead. After recharging it will start right up run OK till it runs out of juice again and dies, etc. Find the fuse and check it is not blown. It is a frustratingly simple fix to a hard to diagnose problem.
