Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Galant
Does not turn over. new battery, lights bright, electrics all work fine. I jumped in and it started perfect, drove to the bank and when I was done.....nothing. The positive battery connector was in pretty bad shape so I replaced it....I suspect the neutral saftey switch or sensor that controls it.....but really don't know.
Bad silonoid on starter
the actual cable on starter is bad even though you replaced the positive battery connector the whole cable could be bad
also your new battery might not be a heat battery example= a battery that cannot handle heat and will die on you this indicates a dead cell in battery
bad alternator not charging battery
bad ignition coil
scorched spark plug wiring
dead cell in battery even though the battery can show good it can still be bad
battery's these days are usually refurbished battery's practically every one recycles batterys so its a chance that you got a bad battery try a jump then while vehicle running disconnect the positive post of battery if vehicle dies its the alternator
i myself had to do a battery swap 4 times before i got a refurbished battery without a dead cell this something that is a pain but once you get a good battery then everything should work
