It could be an alternator issue, your alternator/voltage regulator could be shot, if thats the case your battery has a low charge, and just cannot supply the voltage to keep the ignitor coil firing.

There is an alternator fuse located on the positive battery clamp or in the fuse block under the hood. if it is part of the positive battery clamp it is a dealer only part and will run $10 to 20 dollars. If it is in the fuse block you should be able to get one at the auto store and modify it to slide in easily. Get a flash light and check all of your fuses carefully. The blown fuse may be hard to spot. The design of the car lets the battery go dead with out even turning on the charge light on the dash to let you know you are not charging the battery.

'97 Mitsubishi Galant starts when jumped, runs fine to destination, won't start again unless jumped. Ideas?


You have a bad battery or bad connections to your battery. Try to charge the battery first. If the problem still occurs then replace the battery. It should be ok after this. good luck.

It seems like a ground problem. First check all fuses to see that they have a good contact. Second, verify the battery terminals for good contact. Third verify the charging condition in the alternator battery system., remember shoul be around 14volts with car running.

Car won`t start sometimes. battery is good, starter is also good.


simple test after you start it.. unhook the battery. if it keeps running it is the battery.... if the motor dies it's the alternator
