Asked by Jul 05, 2016 at 10:16 PM about the 2008 Mitsubishi Galant ES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the battery last month and the alternator a few months before that. This car acts very strange when things are about to go out.  Also my clock in the top center of the dash the light quit, I am not sure how to get to the bulb.

Battery and alternator are new, but you still get the charging system fault light? Make sure the alternator is putting out the correct voltage when charging, even though it is new (should be about 14v).

the battery icon usually only half lights up once or twice but today was random flashes of the entire icon for the first time. Its driving me crazy
