Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #2

Galant V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,000 miles


Cannot read the numbers on the radio because the light is dim, even at night. The radio does not hold the channels and continues to reset itself. I've given up going to the mechanic for this because it's not even worth it.

2000 Mistsubishi Galant ES, While the head lights ON i turned off the engine and head lights were auto off and i went and again when i entered IN and started the engine (head light switch being at ON position), from here onwards i see following problems:

1. Remote and Auto lock/unlock is not working, needs manually operation. 2.Seat belt indicator still works fine but buzzing is not heard if seat belt is not put which was used to. 3. Inside reading lamp(Inside car) is not working, bulbs are fine.. 4. Audio player asks for Code, entered code and works fine but only till i take off keys, again morning player asks for the code.

Looks like an fuse is blown out but not able to find which one, Computer shows no problem. Please let me know if any other than fuse and if fuse problem please let me know which one needs to be changed and how to find out which fuse is blownout by seeing or inspecting fuse.

Regards, Balaji M

Tried So far: Checked fuse box, but computer says no problem.

Had Service Engine Soon indicator coming while running and Computer said, Oxygen Sensor 2 is bad but didn't fix as it was okay for me, but later to this problem(fuse related as per my knowledge) this indicator is getting off after starting :) but i know Oxy Sensor 2 is till bad but not indicated due a failure of an fuse.
