Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant
Lights were dimming, warning lights flashing intermittently. Had to jump start one night, and took car to shop. The next day it tested fine (twice) and no problem when they drove it. I drove it the next day, no problem. BUT, the day after that it wouldn't start and I had it towed. They replaced the battery and said everything was fine, but driving it around later that day the lights were flashing/dimming again, and car almost stalled when I turned air on!

Sounds like your alternater, get a multimeter set it to volts start the car then check the battery is getting 14 or over volts from the alternater to the battery , if your getting less than that it's not putting enough volts back to the battery to run the car with good luck colin

Try a day time running light modual,these things are notorious for messing up,and since they are supposed to work when the car is charging it seems like the logical solution.

SOURCE: diff lock and abs lights
An Auto mechanic got a rear bearing of my Mitsubishi Outlander (2003 model) fixed but I noticed a problem thereafter: the ABS indicator on the dash board stays on perpetually whenever I start the car. How do I get this fixed?

Sounds like your IAC(idle air control) motor needs to be replaced. its on the bottom side of the throttle body. there are 3 phillips head screws holding it on.

well, it is kind of hard to know where to start, but the battery light indicates a charging system issue, and since you replaced the battery, now is the time to get that checked out-go to a Pep Boys, Advance auto or Auto Zone or most commercial auto parts stores and they will check the alternator out-for free. If you know someone with a digital voltage meter (they only cost $15 at Lowes, Home Depot)you can check it yourself-read the voltage at the battery with the engine idling, it should read about 14 plus volts. If it doesn't you need an alternator (unless it reads over 16, then you REALLY need a new alternator since your's is cooking your battery). Voltage problems would explain most of your 'disco' dash lights, and it might even explain the check engine light that you've had for TWO YEARS (really/)-that too can be scanned for FREE at the parts store-it might have been a warning of an electrical issue that caused these problems. The steering problem is probably just a tired pump, check the fluid in the steering resevior, it may just be low, or the belt that drives the steering pump pulley might be worn or slipping. Easy to check, and could save you from breaking down on a dark, stormy night...good luck, Annie
