If you are referring to the blue temp light on the dash, it stays on until the engine has reached operating temperature. This lets you know the heat will be ineffective and the engine will not be running at peak efficiency during this time.

This isn'y valid for the 2008 xB because it has a temp gauge instead of a blue/red idiot light the earlier models had.

2003 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4L 4-cyl is having trouble holding a charge on the battery. Tests say battery and alternator is OK. I checked fuses and they were good. I can jump the car but after I drive it...


Most likely you have something draining the battery. Quick way to tell, disconnect the ground (negative) cable to the battery, let it sit for a few hours, then reconnect it and try to start it. If it starts OK, you know the battery is holding a charge, but something is draining it.
To drain it in just a few hours requires a serious draw, like headlights or the cooling fan. It is possible that your cooling fan (behind the radiator) is staying on all the time. Often they are controlled by a thermostat, and will run for a few minutes after you shut off the engine, but it should shut off within about five minutes. If it is still running after ten or more minutes, you have a bad fan thermostat or a bad fan relay. If that is not the problem, you will have to get someone with an ammeter to measure the current draw, and start pulling fuses until you find the culprit.

Check coolant level, and possibly replace thermostat. When a thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant does not circulate thru motor. Gauge stays midrange when driving, because motor is being cooled by air and or the fan. If car seems to operate completely normal, then the gauge is faulty.
