Maxda rx charging system issues
I have a 2008 maxda rx8 and it has 112,000 miles on it. Last week I was driving it and the motor died. Tried to crank it back and got "click click click" so I figured battery was dead. Replaced the battery and the car ran just fine about 45 minutes until brand new battery drained. Car died again. So then I thought altinator was bad. Had altinator and drive bed checked and both are good. Had new battery tested and it's good to. When car battery starts to die I lose power steering and transmission locks in 4th gear every time. All dash lights come on. Once I nip the battery off it's fine again until battery drains. I also had the ECU reset. No aftermarket equipment hooked up either.. i'm lost and not sure what the next step should be.
