Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero
I have a friend who owns a 2001 mitsubishi montero and when he puts the key in the ignition all the electrical comes on, however, when trying to start nothing happens, it doesn't even make a clicking sound. the battery appears to be fine. it was working on and off for the last 6 weeks and it just died. thanks
I had the same problem and it turned out to be the new key I had made was not quite a perfect match for the idnition cylinder. It worked fine but after a few months the car would intermittently just crank over. I would never know when this would happen. Most of the time it fired up without any problem. The problem was that over time the new key because,it wasn't quite perfect, wore down something inside the ignition cylinder (the place where you put your key to start). Somehow this made the security system nervous and it shut off the power to the plugs. It was a real head scratcher. I hope this solves your problem.
