You need to determine if the battery is being charged, if it is the problem is with whatever supplies the lamp (possibly a voltage regulator but I'm guessing). The most important thing to check is that the battery is charging. Do the headlights go brighter when you rev?

Can a Volage Reglator on a 2000 Chevrolet Lumina keep it from starting?


the voltage from the big red wire is battery power
the smaller wire will not have voltage until the alternator is running
one wire goes to the charge light to the voltage regulator
check that the voltage regulator is operational
better still get an accredited auto electrician to check the charge circuit , voltage regulator and alternator for operation

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

01 galant not charging alternator tested ok alternator light does not light when you turn the key to the on position or when engine running


Check your alternator fuse. On Galant's it is part of the positive battery clamp , is a dealer only part, and can run anywhere from $12 to $20. Your battery light will not come on , your alternator is fine, your battery is in good order, but the battery will go dead and kill the car for no apparent reason. If the fuse is not part of the positive battery clamp you will find it in the fuse box under the hood in this case it is a square fuse (60,70,80 amp etc.).

Got a new battery yesterday on my 2000 Mit, but today it will not


Sounds like starter solenoid. Use a voltmeter and put it on B+ wire from starter relay to solenoid. Then crakk the vehicle . If your getting 12v there than its the starter solenoid. if there is no B+ there than check ign. switch, neutral safety switch,starter relay .
Good luck ..... you may want to give the battery a 3 min charge before testing.

2000 Mitsubishi Galant Dying at Random


It seems like a ground problem. First check all fuses to see that they have a good contact. Second, verify the battery terminals for good contact. Third verify the charging condition in the alternator battery system., remember shoul be around 14volts with car running.

Car won`t start sometimes. battery is good, starter is also good.


simple test after you start it.. unhook the battery. if it keeps running it is the battery.... if the motor dies it's the alternator
