How is the oil level? Maybe, just MAYBE the oil pressure/level got low and the ECU shut down the engine. It's Chicken Soup! It couldn't hurt.

http://www.motortrend.com/cars/2005/mitsubishi/galant/recalls/ There was a re-call on the ignition switch for the 2005 Mitsu Galant. (Re-call issued in 2008) Although it's not a starting problem, it may be somehow related
