1991 Mitsubishi Galant Problems
There have been reports of airbags not deploying in the event of a frontal impact. Some claim that a shorted airbag wire harness can cause this to occur. Unfortunately there is no diagnoses that will isolate this problem other than fault codes stored in the airbag control module. Our technicians recommend to have any airbag light issues diagnosed and repaired in order to help ensure the airbags will deploy when needed.
The engine may develop a low idle or stalling condition due to a failed idle air control valve. Our technicians tell us the replacement of the faulty valve is required to correct this condition.
The automatic transmission may fail prematurely. Transmission overhaul or replacement may be necessary to correct this concern.
The powertrain control module (PCM) may fail causing various driveability concerns. Replacement of the PCM is generally required to correct these issues.
