have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cell. Check the drive belt condition and tension. check alternator out put. Everything you have mentioned indicates a lack of battery power. Check terminal condition and tension of the clamp bolts.

04 Galant will start but not stay on. I have to hold down the gas. Mechanic said the accelerator was deprogrammed and I have to take it to a dealership. True?


its sounds like your IAC (idle air control) motor isn't working correctly. It controls the amount of air that enters the engine when the throttle body is closed. If it is not working, the engine will start but dies from insufficiant air flow. Your car doesn't die with the gas pedal pressed because pressing the pedal opens the throttle body allowing air to enter the engine.

Will start and run only if you hold down the accelerator. as soon as you let off of it it will die


Hello,
It sounds like you may have a faulty MAF, ( mass air flow sensor ).
The ECM, ( electronic control module ), should set the fuel/air mix ratio at 1 part fuel to 14.7 parts air. A faulty MAF can prevent the computer from determining the proper fuel/air mix ratio, and that can lead to bad idle, poor acceleration, fake stalling and stalling. Eventually it can prevent the engine from starting.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks for using Fixya!

It sounds like your fuel filter is getting clogged. There is enough flow to allow the engine to run at low load, but as soon as you try to dump lots of fuel into the engine, there is not enough flow, and the engine dies. Replace the fuel filter.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.
