Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Unable to start car, keyless remote won't work anymore either

My 2004 Mitsubishi Galant was driving great in the afternoon. I returned home and had to leave again shortly after. When I attempted to start the car again, it basically completly shut down. The digital mileage flashes when the door is open and only half of the numbers are appearing on the screen. The car does not appear to have any functions. Even the keyless remote will not work to lock/unlock doors or open trunk. I am worried this is a computer board or something but I'm hoping its the battery. Any ideas?

My mitsubishi 2004 galant won't make a sound when i try to start it .no lights nothing not a sound.What could be the problem?

Could be the starter or possibly the ignition. Best way to test the starter is get out a multimeter and check the voltage to the main wire on the starter make sure it's getting 12 volts, then when you try and start see if the solenoid is getting voltage, the solenoid will ONLY get voltage when you are trying to start it. Try that and go from there.
thank you,

The door lock on driver side front doesn't work anymore with the remote, the other doors are working fine on a Lincoln Ls 2004

Try using the Keyless Entry Pad

If that won't open the drivers door,
then you will need a scan tool, to see
if it can comunicate with the DDM -
Drivers Door Module.

That may be a possible problem, if
everything else works

2004 galant wont start PLEASE HELP

Sure sounds like the battery to me. It may also stem from a problem with the charging system. Take the battery to a servo and have it tested before you buy a new one. If it tests good then you will need your alternator or charging system repaired.
