2001 mits montero ltd, rechrgd battery & reconnect-alarm goes off

Battery continues to drain- had been recharging battery as needed until this past time-
charged the battery, cleaned the terminals, then reconnected terminals to battery only to have the alarm constantly going off?

This last incident was after driving the truck about 1/2 mile, parked in garage for about 10 min and then truck would not start.

I am in process of looking up which fuse controls alarm so i can disconnect and use truck and till I find a solution for battery draining?

    2003 Montero full, when I leave my truck for several hours the battery will drain down so far that not even the interior light will come on. With every thing off, the doors closed and the key out of the ignition, it continually draws 4.5 amps. so what could pull that much current that is not turning off?.

By a cheap amp meter from your local electrical shop should not cost any more than $20, disconnect negative terminal from battery and put the amp meter in between the negative post and the disconnected terminal you will find that there is a number apering on the amp meter eg. 2 amps start pulling fuses one at a time and see if the nomber drops ( always refit the fuse after you pull each one our you may have problems later working out what fuse gos were) when the nomeber dose drop you have found the circut that is at ault and you can make the choise of operating without this cercut or fixing it

good luck

Disconnect the battery and fully recharge it. Reconnect the battery.

you could also try holding the Lock button or holding the Open button. Each alarm system have slightly different ways to reset.

Check the owner's manual to find out what needs to be done BEFORE you disconnect the battery. Then follow those instructions before you disconnect the ground wire. Leave it unhooked for at least 15 seconds then carefully reconnect it. Sometimes "rebooting" the system solves problems like this.

1999 Montero, changed battery, alarm going off. No key fob. How do you stop the alarm


1) Disconnect Negative Battery Terminal

2) Turn Ignition Key On

3) Connect Negative Battery Terminal

4) Alarm will be deactivated. You should get a fob for this vehicle to prevent any accidental alarms going off in the future.

CAUTION: This procedure will create a spark when reconnecting the battery. A recently charged or discharged battery can be surrounded by a cloud of explosive hydrogen gas. Wear safety glasses and turn face away from battery while making connection. Do not perform this procedure with a battery that has recently been on a charger!

Recently bought a 2000 montero limited replased battery but next morning the battery was dead after driving it about 100 miles. I jumped it to get it started let it run and then checked the battery and...


For a battery to go dead on you like that there must be something draining the battery while the vehicle is switched off. It could be something like a trunk light which is not switching off or a short across some circuit that does not show up on any light. The first and easiest test is to disconnect the battery negative cable whenever you park the vehicle overnight etc. and see if the battery still runs down.
As a more positive step and if this does not affect the alarm, disconnect the positive lead from the battery and wire a bulb like a tail light bulb, between the terminal and the removed lead. The bulb should light up. Make sure that everything on the vehicle is switched off, the bulb should still be lit. Remove and replace the fuses one by one until the bulb goes out. That is the circuit that is running your battery flat. Check all the components on that circuit until you get the light to stay out and your problem should be found.

I can't turn off the factory installed alarm on my 2005 Rav 4.


yeah. disconnect the battery, put the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON position. leave the driver's side door open, and reconnect the battery. the alarm will chirp a few times while you're putting the battery back on, but this SHOULD work.

you might as well go ahead and take the battery out of the remote for the alarm as well, to make sure its not setting your alarm off as well. you can replace the battery in the remote once the battery is reconnected in the vehicle. the remote might need to be reprogrammed if the alarm goes off again, otherwise its time to go to the toyota dealership!

!!WARNING!! make sure the key isnt in the position to START the vehicle, you just want the key ON. make sure that nothing else in the vehicle is on, and also, be VERY careful when reconnection the battery, as it will spark when it makes its connection. if you have been charging the batter a lot, make sure to give the battery time to cool down, because when car batteries get hot, they emit hydrogen, which is explosive. this IS a risky move, but is the only thing you can do, unless you either install a kill-switch or charge the battery and drive to the dealership while the alarm is going off. sometimes, when you start the vehicle, the alarm will stop, but im assuming this isnt your case.
