99 eclipse spyder has a problem, it isn't getting power
my eclipse is not having power for long, place in the key and no power, just tested the battery, its fine, tried jumping and its lost power, every time we hit the key, no lights, no power, cleaned the cables, cleaned the terminal, cleaned the hot wire, ground wire, every-time the key is hit, no more power????????????? Cleaned the ground wire, lights don't work until placed back on wire to connector. Just when you hit the key...............everything goes blank.???/ What to do?
Its a stick shift also.
might be a blown fuse
Replace battery. It has a dead cell that is shorting out. To test battery take volt meter and put - lead on - side of battery and put + lead in battery acid. each cell should go up 2.2 volts if it doesnt the cell is bad or shorted. Cell one should be 2.2 volts cell two should be 4.4 and three should be 6.6 if it doesnt go up like this you found the bad cell. LOAD tests dont work!! This is the only way to test a battery the correct way.
get new battery terminal
