Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant
I put a new radio in and to wires touched and turned the car on. so we moved the wires and put the radio the rest of the way in. Then when we went off to work the speedometer just stopped working and i checked the fuses and still nothing, but then a day later the check engine light came on and the guys at Autozone could find the thing to plug the checker machine into so now at at the end of my rope and i really dont want to spend alot of money to fix a speedometer. Please someome tell me whats wrong with it. By the way its a 2000 Mistubishi Galant DE
Well, you learned the hard way, always disconnect the neg. battery cable before working on anything electric. (I've screwed things up trying to save a couple of minutes by not disconnecting the cable myself, sure I would be careful and not ground out anything!)
Your diagnostic link plug in is under the dash on the driver's side, mounted on the passenger side of the steering column. Autozone should have been able to find it. Get the codes scanned to see what fried when the wires touched. If you have any questions, post the trouble code #'s here for further help. Good luck! Curt
