I was searching the web for an answer to my 2004 galant working fine in the morning and then in the afternoon dead. Found this posting on fixya:
My 2004 Mitsubishi Galant was driving great in the afternoon. I returned home and had to leave again shortly after. When I attempted to start the car again, it basically completly shut down. The digital mileage flashes when the door is open and only half of the numbers are appearing on the screen. The car does not appear to have any functions. Even the keyless remote will not work to lock/unlock doors or open trunk. I am worried this is a computer board or something but I'm hoping its the battery. Any ideas?
With this reply:
sounds like the battery to me. if not it would be the ETACS.
yep i just checked and there is a TSB out on it.

When I click on the link above it takes me to this forum but I can't seem to find that particular one. Is it too old and if so, is there anyone who can help with this problem or give me some direction, would greatly appreciate any help from this newbie.
