Question about Mitsubishi Galant
It sounds like one , but what lights were flickering? Headlights? Most of the time, the dash board will go crazy on you. If the check engine light didn't come on or the charge light, it could be the voltage regulator which is inside the alternator. You can check it without taking it out with a small volt meter, with the key off, check the voltage in the battery, should maintain 13.5 at all times. If it isn't, it isn't charging. But if you turn on the car and check the voltage , it should go up higher, check it out, if it doesn't, it isn't charging, take the alternator to a parts store and have it checked, I'm sure it will test bad. While you are checking the battery, make sure it is full of water. and make sure the terminals are clean, they won't charge up if dirty, and they won't start your car if dirty either. Hope this helps.
