Question about Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Recently bought a 1996 mitsubishi galant S a couple of weeks ago & the interior light was'nt working. Then it started working sometimes then it quit working again. The buzzer when the door was open & the keys in the ignition worked on & off & quit working. The same with the buzzer for the headlights on & door open. The passenger power door locks worked & still do while ignition is on & it used to work sometimes while ignition off but not anymore. Passenger side power lock always worked. Used to be a kind of clicking noise in dash behind the radio or air conditioning controls when starting car & then went away for a while. All of a sudden I go to start the car & I heard the AC blowing & the ignition lights came on & it made a bit of a clicking noise & then nothing & I mean nothing. The starter never even kicked in & now Nothing electrical works. No lights, radio, headlights, with or without ignition on. absolutely nothing. HELP!!!

Sound's like you have some sort of a short or an open, somewhere, i would first check your fuse box,
in your engine and in your dash with a test light. make sure all fuses are working, if you had an open or short it could be possible you blew various fuses with a certain surge of power..
Second.. if you have an aftermarket sterio and all said before turns out alright. then i would pull out and check the wiring in the sterio and all surrounding it, one could have been rubbing up on another bare wire or ground out.

good luck..

Hello, I have a 96 mitsubishi galant es that wont start


could be the crank sensor, you need to check spark and fuel delivery, if you have fuel then its got to be the high tension side of things that are wrong, does this model run off a coil pack for the ht, could be that, you said you change the alternator, check connections at the rear of alternator, this could be the supply for the ht etc,good luck.

Drainig battery


You have either a battery with a dead cell that must be replaced, or something is on and draining the battery. Check the under hood, trunk, glove box, brake, parking, and courtesy lights. Open the hood at night and remove the negative cable. When you touch it to the negative battery post if you see a fairly large spark, something is on or something is drawing power. If you see a very tiny spark that is normal as it is the radio & clock pulling power. Replace the battery.

No interior lighting or reverse lights, but other lights work


The answer is Yes, could be either one or......could be a relay. Need to get a symantic and see if there is a relay in the system.

2004 Galant Battery Fuse... or Fusible Link


so you reversed the connections and you think you nuked something? Right?

Check all fuses and relays. Replace any fuses that are blown and all relays that look scorched/burnt.
If that doesn't work, take to dealer to make sure the computer and advanced control electronics didn't get fried.
