Battery won't stay charged

Asked by Nov 07, 2016 at 09:06 AM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My battery won't stay charged. Have had the
alternator and starter tested and both are fine.
Bought a new battery because it died on me when
parked and thought it was the problem.  Talked to
the previous owner and said he 1st started having
the problem when he put a new radio in. The radio
was taken out. What could cause my battery to not
stay charged?

Inspect the wires for a bad ground or where two wires have been connected on purpose. It sounds like you have power feeding through the system.
