Question about Mitsubishi Montero

I have a 2004 Mitsubishi Montero that has been

I have a 2004 Mitsubishi Montero that has been sitting for 2 months, it started perfectly and strong 2 months ago, the original battery was dead when we started it so we jumped it that 2 months ago, I have a brand new battery in it now and it turns over beautifully now just not spark, I did put one of the cords to the block to see if there was a spark while having someone crank it, there's no spark at all. In the photo I added fuse #11 and fuse D I have no clue what they are, and I don't have a owners manual to look it up in that and I have spent hours looking online for some kind of clue.

Those are main engine fuses, not always both used. They power the ECU, ignition trigger, crank position sensor etc. Try ebay for a handbook or owners forum. Google images should provide a diagram

SOURCE: Rusty coolant and dead battery

You have several things going on here. 1. Rust in coolant (likely its a 4.0 or four cyl) A while back, the epa rules became so stringent about mpg that most better iron block engines had to be made thinner and from an alloy that has less zinc in it. Zinc prevents internal rust and acts like a binding agent preventing cracks from normal expansion and contraction. Flush radiator and block as well as you can and pray that larger chunk style particles don't plug up radiator. 2.Your charging system is able to keep a battery charged during normal driving, done at least once weekly. Sitting unused for long periods, even the simple memory in the radio can eventually kill it. I'd invest in a "battery tender"...Then, the computer will not loose its memory and the battery will stay in good condition. If you jumped a dead battery and got it started, the alternator may have been overtaxed and failed, as it's not designed to re-charge a battery, only to maintain it's state of charge . You need to get the system checked and squared away. 3. You need to determine where coolant is going. If there is nothing leaking externally then it's being lost inside the engine. Small leaks can evaporate on hot engine parts and not reach the ground...check hot, cold, with cap on, with cap off (don't open hot though) Rusty coolant points to possibility of insufficient antifreeze...if stored during colder months, this can cause cracks in block and cylinder head. Check engine oil for signs of coolant intrusion (coffee milkshake like residue under fill cap, white smoke from tailpipe are two symptoms) As far as being related, it all goes to kind of storage and maintenence it's getting. You can run these things 'till the body falls off if you take care of them.

SOURCE: I have a 93 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 that cranks and mentioned that there is no spark coming from the coil when it's in no start...Is there power from the alternator going to the coil?
One other item...If the timing chain is worn and stretched, it is possible that the cam sensor and crank sensor are out of phase with each other, just enough where a temperature difference will change starting ability.
One question...while in no start, have you tried changing the throttle position while cranking to see if it lights at part or 3/4 throttle?

Check the IAC valve...or sometimes known as an electronic choke. That valve is how your engine gets air when the throttle body plate is closed. If the valve is stuck due to malfunction or carbon build up then it will cause that problem, and give you a rough idle at best.

SOURCE: Looking for a diagram of


Fuse map comes in the user manual. You can get a copy at the nearest dealer. Service documentation available to technicians list fuses in their respective contest depending on the chapter, and there is no fuse map.

To fix your problem:

Check fuses 5 and 19 in the in-dash fuse box, located below the steering wheel on the driver side (passenger side in some model- check both sides). Below a pic:


Near to the fuse box there is an auxiliary relay box. Check also for fuse 19 in the aux relay box. Here a picture:


If that does not fix the problem, check the mirror fuse and wiring . See Body and Chassis Electrical (from workshop manual).

Hello i have a 2004 expedition , and i have been having issues with my battery draining. about a month and a half ago i went away vacation , came home to start my truck only to relize my battery was dead....

Your solution is a little hard to find too bad they told you to change the alternator. It is a simple fuse you need to change that is blown. on the expetion sometimes there are two one in the fuse box and one under a black cover follow the alternator small wires it should point to the direction of the small i believe 7.5 amp fuse. it was hard to find and i do this for a living. good searching.

I have had a similar problem with mine. The repair shop is telling me there is oil seeping into the alternator and shorting it out. I am going to soo if I can put some sort of shielding around it to prevent this.

01 Montero not starting but electrical works when key in ignition

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.
