Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero
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?
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
