Customer Question
2009 Galant won't start...

2009 Galant won't start. When does it's fine but will loose all power while driving and then when you try to restart it's like you have no electricity. It has a new battery.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes. They there is no corrosion and they are tight

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Galant yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to.
