1996 Mitsubishi Galant Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The seat belts may not properly retract due to an internal fault with the retractor mechanism. Replacement of the seat belt retractor would be required to correct this concern.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The power windows may fail, often related to moisture inside the door. Affected components will need to be replaced. If possible some type of moisture protection could be added to try and prevent repeat failures.

Drive Train -- Verified

Premature automatic transmission failures have been noted, often requiring overhaul or replacement of the transmission.
