We have replaced the o2 sensors and the battery is good and has a brand new alternator on it. the fuel pump comes on and now the windows will not roll down and the doors will not lock. please help. We were driving it down the road and then the speedometer kept dropping and then the car just shut off.

    DOES YOUR BATTERY HOLD A GOOD LOAD? CHARGE IT FOR LIKE 14 HRS ON A TRICKLE CHARGER AND THEN LOAD TEST. WHERE DID YOU BUY THE ALT?

    the couple we bought it from took it to the shop and had it replaced. the battery holds a good charge on it
    everything will come on on the dash and interior lights and radio comes on as well.

    The alternator red wire may not be connected to the battery +terminal. (the small red wire) Othwise, check the fuse between the alternator and the battery to see if it burned out. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2001-Mitsubishi-Ga... on this list it will be for the charging system.
