98 mitsubishi montero, trying to by pass security, now wont turn over, maybe the starter lockout, but cant find diagram to trace correct wires

Removed the after market hornet unit, was fine but no horn, removed the wiring harness wire by wire while reconnecting each one before removing the next, starting it every couple wires. now everything still works but will not crank now

With the connector halves close together can you tell which wire goes into the connector? Its probably the same color, but check anyway. Once you are sure you can follow that one back to where it comes from and check for power

How was the horn kit wiring harness installed? Was it patched in? Did it have its own wiring harness? Trying to figure out how that kit could have had any effect on the starter.

When the key is on do you have accessory power?

You will need to go buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart (usually cheapest there) or Local Electronics place (ie Best Buy). The wire harness that goes out from the radio goes into the Adapter and the adapter plugs into the car harnesses. Also these Adapters come with the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. They typically run 10 - 15 bucks depending on where you get them. Thanks for using FixYa!

Let's say that the battery and it's cables are good and charged and tight. and clean. You walk up and unlock the car and get in and close the door ( is the security light on? ) if it is can you put in the key and turn it on and does the security light go out? If it does'nt then you'll need to reset the security system. The GM way. With the doors all closed and the driver window down, reach in and turn the key to start and let go. the security light will be on steady, between 10 and 15 minutes it'll be out. Turn the key off and turn it back on and the security light will be back on, agian wait till it goes out. Again after it's out turn it off and wait a sec. and turn it back on, the light will come back on. again wait till it goes back out. this time ( the third time ) turn the key off wait a sec and then turn it to start and if everythings alright it'll start right up or crank OK and you'll have to finde another problem but the security system is'nt going to be it. If you battery is'nt good enough to do this you need a new battery anyway and your going to have all kinds of troble till you chcnge it.

2001 Montero won't start, replaced starter, battery and alternator. what else could it possibly be?

posibility your nuetral sw is shorted or starter relay is bad. you already spent a lot of time and money may as well buy a diagram otherwise you will spent more. research in the library or go to dealer parts store and ask or beg to see a diagram why the car wont start. what do you hear just click, just crank, it wont turn over, nothing. check fuses
