Not sure these are related. battery light is due to alternator failure. Oil light is due to oil pump wear. The oil pump may work OK for a couple more years. Replace it if it gets much worse (if light comes on above 1000 rmp). The alternator must be replace now.

Mitsubishi 2001 Galant battery drain


Do not disconnect the positive Or negative cable while vehicle is running it is no longer an acceptable test and damage to computers could occur as there is no ability to suppress or absorb a voltage spike. If you remove the negative cable to check for an amperage draw that's an other thing. You should use a meter and connect it in series between the neg post and the neg cable once all modules are in sleep mode there should be no more than .3v as a rule of thumb. If more you have a parasitic draw which you could isolate the system/circuit by removing fuses one at a time. When the draw is gone that's the circuit in question.

Had my oil changed on Friday and on Sunday my oil light came on and car shut off completely. The car has 103,000 thousand miles on it. What could have caused this?


Most vehicles ahve the oil pressure sensor tied into the engine computer, or the igntion. When there's a loss of pressure it shuts the engine off to try to save extensive damage to the engine. Check to see if there's oil in the motor, there may be a leak at the drain plug or the oil filter base gasket resulting in a loss of oil. Also it may be a faulty pressure sensor.

I have two questions...I have a 2001 dodge stratus es and it make a screeching noise when turning the wheel. what could that be and also just had the oil changed and the oil light keeps flashing when I am...


If the screeching sounds high pitched it could be a serpentine belt which would indicate it needs replacement.
If it's lower pitched the power steering pump could be low on fluid which will lead to replacing the pump if left long enough. To check the fluid look in the operator's manual and search for power steering to locate the reservoir and to determine which fluid to use. If you cannot find that search around under the hood for something indicating the power steering reservoir. If it is completely out of fluid you may have to remove air from the system by disconnecting the return hose and extending it with a clear hose which drains into a nearby container. Start the engine and begin filling the reservoir, turning the steering wheel side to side until no bubbles are seen in the hose. Stop the engine and replace the return hose.

I would recommend a mechanic or friend to help you in either case.

The flashing oil light means oil pressure is low. Check the oil level and add more if it's low. If that doesn't resolve the problem have a mechanic check it out.

My 2001 oldsmobile alero will not start, I put gas and it would not crank over. Then the security light started flashing so I turned the key to the on poistion and was waiting 10 minutes and during that...


im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.

Where is the starter located on a 2001 mitsubishi galant


First disconnect the battery. Next remove the flat, angular heat shield from the starter itself (1x 8mm nut and 2x 8mm bolts). Do NOT try to remove the heat shield from the Exhaust pipe - it can't be removed with the starter in place and it's not necessary anyway. Next remove the oil filter. You'll loose a few ounces of oil so be prepared for that with a drain pan and either cover the removed filter to keep debris out or replace it and remember to check the oil level later. Remove the small signal wire from the solenoid (released by pushing in a tiny lever with a finger tip) and also remove the 12mm nut attaching the positive battery cable to the starter. The starter is held in place by two 14mm bolts. On the engine (passenger) side, there is a 14x30mm bolt threading into the transaxle from the bottom of the starter. On the transaxle (driver) side, there is a longer 14x50mm bolt threading into the top of the starter.
