Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Montero
95 Montero with new alternator and a fairly new battery. While driving I noticed the charge was reading right at 12v. Got home and went to start it the next day to no avail. Turned the switch and heard a clicking sound in or behind the glove box but nothing from the starter. Has anyone experienced this problem before? Any help you can offer will be appreciated.
That indicates a dead battery. Your alternator may have failed. Check the battery reserve power, and if it is under 8VDC the car will not have enough power to crank the starter. A healthy battery will be around 10-12VDC when the car is off.... and 13-14VDC while running.
