Sounds like a fuel delivery problem or lack of air. Check all fuses and relays associated with fuel delivery system. Check your battery and definitely battery connections. A near dead battery can sometimes start a car, but not keep all systems running. Also a loose battery cable can start a car, but while vibrating, cannot keep it running. When you turn key to "ON" or "RUN" position, you should hear a whine sound. That is fuel pump starting and priming your fuel system. Once you start it, you should continue to hear the whine - but very faintly. Check your fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure at the fuel rail(s). All this pass? Then move to spark (ie. Ignition system) - for a short somewhere. Check for a large airflow blockage. Seen small animals crawl up inside the airbox and die and close off the airflow. You never know. Good luck.

SOURCE: my dash board from my mitsubishi galant went off

Can you please turn on your headlights to full beam, and confirm if you have strong brightness?

If your battery is in good condition, then there is likely a short somewhere in the main power line (coming from the red lead of your battery).

You should also inspect the MAIN engine power fuse, situated in the Engine fuse box, to ensure it hasn't blown.

Cant find the computer in my 1999 Mitsubishi Galant with a 2.4 engine


Should be behind the glove box, either near the console or the blower motor. You may have to remove the console or the blower motor to access.

I have a 2003 mitsubishi galant, 4 cyl. whenever i take off it goes really slow like it doesnt want to change gears. (automatic) i had the trans checked & they said it's ok. could it be a fuel...


I have a similar problem...when at a stop it jerks in hesitation sometime feeling as if it wants to stall. It also does this when accelerating from stop...it has completely stalled out once when accelerating after switching from reverse to drive, but started right away.

My 01 Mits Galant starts and stalls immediately. Then other times it starts and runs fine. Then back to start and stall. Replaced fuel pump, same thing. Any suggestions?


1. change the fuel filter.
2. buy a bottle of sea foam from your local auto parts store or lucas either one is the best. for bad fuel and water and trash.
