That's a sad situation with you're Galant. But Galants are very reliable indeed. Things go wrong and some mechanics make the situation worst. Some dealers customer service makes you wish to never go back there. That is the case with a lady friend of mine and her 2001 Nissan Sentra. The car was great till something triggered the Check Engine light. She took it to a Nissan dealer and they kept on changing parts, wrong diagnostics, more replacements..... she has spent more than $4,000 in repairs and now she totally hates Nissan's. And Nissan's are not bad....just like Mitsubishi's there very good cars. But S*&t happens and that is normal with all makes and models, including Honda's and Toyota's.

Hey. Last week I bought an 04 galant ls v6 for my wife. She wanted a minivan. f--- that. anyway, I am interested in the xenon light conversion as well. I wasn't sure if just replacing the bulbs would improve anything, or if I should replace the entire light assembly. Please let me know anything you found out what you have found out or done. Thanx, steve from canada. By the way, she loves the car, so does the baby.

Just purchased an '03 Galant, my first Mitsu, love it so far. Can anyone provide me with key fob instructions? Can't seem to get the trunk to open with the fob even after new batteries... Also, any other tips on the '03 in general would be appreciated. Thanks.

I just purchased my '07 ES Galant w/ a sport package on it. If i need to upgrade my wheels & tires from 16" to 18", is there any effect on my TPMS or tire pressure monitoring system? Will they be able to transfer the sensor to my new custom wheels?? I really love this car, though it's a 4 cylinder only w/ a sportronic transmission which is awesome - great power for the first 3 gears!!! What if i have a V6 3.5L engine???

I don't for certain on the '03, but on the '06 you must press the button two times to get the trunk to pop. You probably already tried this, but that's all I can come up with, other than Googling for answers or an owners manual.

Turns out it is an aftermarket product and the trunk button does not work...

Had similar problem with my 2002. Heater core valve is probably stuck in closed position. In my 2002, its controlled by a motor driven module located next to heater core below dash. Access requires removing various panels and ducts below glove compartment--not exactly easy but doable. Dealer part that costs > $100. Good intention e.g. minimize cable actuators, etc. resulting in Bad implementation by using a substandard motor control subsystem design. Good cars sometime have minor design faults of which this is an example.

My 04 Galant LS is doing the same thing (ABS, TCL OFF, and Anti Lock) lights come on after driving. I was told it is a "sensor" issue. Has anyone had this problem and gotten it repaired? Is it costly? Will it cause any trouble in the long run (i.e. engine failure?) Please help

It could be a bad sensor. It could be a failed computer module. ABS and anti-lock are one and the same and the light(s) are telling you that neither the ABS nor the traction control is operable. So, yes, this could cause a real problem in the wrong circumstances. Other than that, it won't hurt the car in and of itself.
