Mitsubishi Eclipse Problem Report

Mitsubishi Eclipse Charging system may stop working due to fuseable link

(9 reports)

The 80 amp fusible link for the charging system can fail and is often overlooked when diagnosing a charging system that is not working. Our technicians recommend to make sure this fusible link is OK before replacing any charging system components.

Charging sysem just stopped working one day so I got battery and alternator tested batery was good alternator wouldn't test so I bought a brand new one for 220$ best one they had for the car installed it and had same problem checker starter and it was good also all connection from battery r good cleaned starter posts alternator connections r good and new and still no charge -

Car starts missing. I pull off Frwy immediately, car dies. Will not turn over. By the time the super happy tow guy gets there said piece of sh@t,....attempts to turn over but only turns on check battery light?!?! What is this fuseable link I keep hearing about?
