This sounds to me like a definite problem with your alternator. Remove the alternator and get it checked. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

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

Does it crank over? The battery you unhooked? It was one of the coach batteries right? It has a single battery for the engine and two for the coach?

Battery dies unless positive cable is disconnected & then reconnected to start it.

Could still be your starter relay or starter itself. Turn your headlights on and then crank. Do headlights dim greatly when cranking?

It sounds like your computer in your vehicle has to be reset. Disconnect your battery cable for about 5 Min's or so and make sure your battery posts are clean. Make sure your radio A\C and other electrical devices are off before you reconnect the battery. After reconnecting the battery, restart your vehicle and let it idle for about 5 to six Min's or so for all the sensors to reset. Drive it a few miles after that. If you still have a problem you should take it to the dealer or a auto shop to be put on their diagnostic machine to find out what the problem is.
Hope that helps...

Electronic handbrake will not release Jaguar S Type 2004

Common problem - normally caused by low battery voltage. Disconnect battery for 10 mins (MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR RADIO CODE) reconnect battery - then follow instructions on dashboard to reset park/brake. Use this method for all p/brake faults as 95% of the time it resets them. Hope this helps - good luck.
