SOURCE: Car turns over but won't stay running

It could be a few things there could be a leak in the fuel line causing the engine not to get fuel. It also could be a fuel filter that is very clogged. Try these first.

Galant wont start

Interesting,this sounds just like no output from the alternator. If the alternator is good then it has to be the cabling or connections to the battery. If you have a multimeter take a reading on the cabling then read what is actually reaching the battery posts.

New battery, alternator, and good starter, car runs and starts, but the battery light is on. What's the problem? 2000 Mitsuibushi Galant

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?

I have a 97 galant that keeps blowing the 100 amp fuse? alternator tested good twice checked wiring reads good is there another fuse ?

Usually that fuse powers the alternator and the fuse box.
It would have to be a big short to ground to blow that fuse.
Its possible the main wire to the alternator is touching a metal spot, or the alternator is shorting out inside when it is running.
What is draining the battery may be something else, or the battery could be discharging after the fuse blows if the alternator is not charging it.

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.).

Starting Problem

Probably a bad starter as well. A good battery can make a marginal starter work, but over time the battery will be weakened by the drain of the starter or the starter will get worse.

Remove the starter and take it to your local parts store for testing and replacement. Bring your battery along as the bad starter might have toasted it.

Also a bad battery can wear out a starter quickly.

We had issues like this with our pickup truck a few years back. Replaced the battery, worked okay for a while, then the replaced the starter, worked okay for a while, then the battery was bad. Eventually replaced both and haven't had any issues since.

So when replacing one it is a good idea to check the other.

My 1997 Mitsubishi Galant won't start. Initially I believed it was the starter. I took it out and had it checked. It is working fine. I replaced the battery and I noticed that the 100 amp alternator...

You have short circuit between battery positive terminal and chassis.Follow a cable from battery to an alternator.If O.K. remove alternator and check all diods- 6 pse.Also check cable from battery to a starter motor.
