Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

No power until key is on

Basically nothing. includeing headlights and 4-ways, works until key is in run position. Then everything seems to work, there is an ocasional feeling that the car is going to stop running.
This started with the remote entry not working and now includes almost every circut, the owner is some miles from me and asked for help.

    No, this car was working fine ubtil Wed. afternoon. That's when the owner told me that the remote had quit working. By the time she called me she was starting to notice other problems.
    I have two maybes, ignition switch and or combo switch. Of course it could be some really wild grounding problem.

Turn key and just a loud click starter not turning but I noticed when key is in start position all power seems to go out dash lights radieo dome everything goes out until key is returned to run pos.


Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.

Clean and tighten battery cable connections and check battery ground, engine ground-should be a ground strap from engine to the body or frame. If this happens and you have nothing, no headlights, nothing-it's almost certainly a problem at or right off the battery.

Wife goes to start our 1991 Dodge Shadow and nothing. headlights work, dome lights etc. but anything that is tied to the ignition won't work. So I have been trying to find out where the ignition switc


It is on the steering column, below the ignition lock cylinder.
Before changing the switch, pull the electrical connector apart for the switch, and check for a power signal into the switch.
Probably a fusible link off the battery supplies power to the switch. Check that you have one hot wire going to the switch-one wire should have power available on it at all times. If no power to switch, check fusible links. If there is power available, then go ahead and replace the switch.

Dim lights


I had the exact same problem. Everything checked out ok at the garage including the earths. Finally we discovered that it is very easy to push the bulbs in in the wrong position and they will work but they are too dim. There is only one way that they are supposed to fit in, as soon as we got them slotted in correctly - bingo, dazzling headlights!

Tilt the steering wheel down all the way and see if it starts, if it does then there is a main power wire loose in the steering columb. Thats all which comes to my mind at this time.

Is the ground for the engine and the battery clean and working properly check at point of connection with test light to see if all grounds are OK and make sure no positive cable are bare and touching metal causing a ground fault and blowing fuse . check wires at battery and going to starter some times wires will burn through and touch other wires or metal causing a direct ground. good luck
