Question about Mitsubishi Galant
Charging it.and it goes dead
You probably need a new battery if it doesn't hold a charge. Average lifetime of a battery is about 2 years. Look on the outside of your battery and there should be a label with a year and month punched out which will tell you when it was made. Look inside the battery to see if there is corrosion or low water. If the water is low put in distilled water, fill it not quite full but so the water is above the metal plates then charge again. If its corroded it won't charge well. If it takes a full charge then dumps it once its put back in the car you will need a new one.

SOURCE: battery keeps going dead .
When the car dies because the battery gets to low on voltage, as yours is doing, then it's one of two things. The alternator or the voltage regulator.I'm assuming you had the alternator checked. So you will have to have the regulator checked. The regulators usually are built into the alternator, some models though used to have a separate one, out side the alternator. And for a while in the 90's they put the regulator in the ECM/PCM. Hopefully yours is not there. A parts store should be able to tell you exactly where yours is. Hope this helps alittle.
