Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Montero

1 Answer

AHHHHH I have a 1998 mits Montero sport. My batteries keep going dead, Have a new one in right now. Had car to the mechanic, said it wasn't the alternator. Ran great for 2 days, its dead again. After I put the new battery in, there is a constant winding from a part in the upper left corner under the hood- it has metal, round arms coming from it. What is that part? Any ideas what my problem may be?

Hi

Sounds like the alternator.
Possibly the alternator belt is loose, or a bearing is shot.

Get that mechanic back, and tell him you are not pleased, that you are back to square one, and out of pocket after renewing that battery !

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a Fixya rating please !

I have changed my battery 3 times and it keeps going dead


Did they test the output only, 13.5 to 14v if it was all that was tested there are two other possibilitys that the alternator needs testing for Voltage regulation which will fry a battery (over charge and cells collapse)or the diodes have failed which will flatten a battery overnight.
