Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Interior Dash Lights dim, brake & battery warning lights flash on and off.

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.

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?

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

Dash lights wont work when my95 acura is on but i have after market security and that makes them flash when locked or unlocked and it flashs but when car is turned on and lights are turned on the dont work...


there are like 15 lights, idiot lights and park/dim.
are all idiot lamps out, or just the parkings.
like CEL, Charge, Oil, Brake,
if the main warning lights are all out, key on, and engine runs
and head lights are full bright.
then you blew a fuse, as always, check fuses first.

2005 buick lacrosse cxl... dash lights and interior lights are going dim to bring to dim to bright very rapidly


First, check that the battery connections are clean and not corroded. If not look for the ground wires that connect to the chassis. Check to see if any are corroded or loose. Finally if that has no effect, you have a short somewhere in your wiring. The easy way to isolate it is to pull the fuses for each device one by one and see if the dimming stops. The last one to cause the dimming is the problem. If it happens when you hit a bump it also might be a ground fault in the interior car grounds....good luck!

How do I turn off the interior lights that are now on continuously?


The dash light dimmer knob is turned on all the way bright dim the dash lights a little to turn off interior lights. When you go to dim the dash lights you might fill a click. That click is the farthest you can go before the interior lights go on.

My dash lights and radio lights blink from bright


It sounds like a poor Ground connection, Start by checking the connector that connects to the Instrument Cluster then see if one wire is terminated to the Metal components of the Dash Board. This would be the Master Ground connection for ALL Instrument lights and typically would include any other Lights on the Same Circuit. You will most likely find a loose sheet metal screw making this Ground Connection. With a high resistance connection the lights would be somewhat dim. If they flash between Dim and Bright it is an intermittent connection causing it. Almost always this will be found to be a loose screw connecting the Ground to the Chassis.
