Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

100A battery fuse blown?

Sears Auto Center just put a new alternator in my 98 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 3.0 V6. Now engine can't idle. A/T, Battery & Brake warning lites come on after stalling but no problem restarting. Turning off ignition almost the same as disconnecting the battery - I know this because with ignition key ON but engine still OFF, except power-window & horn, everything else (power-lock, courtesy-dome-map lites, heater fan) doesn't work. I also have to reenter radio code and reset the clock after engine start. I suspect the 100A battery fuse is blown. If so can the car still run and what are the risks? Thanks.

They more than likely shorted out your 100a link fuse by grounding out your alt cable while replacing it. Sounds like they didn't disconnect the battery before hand. Your car has an idle program which it re-learns every time you lose power, or in your case, turn off the switch. You need to replace this fuse or your car will not charge.

How to change the thermostat on the 98 ls montero sport ...where is it located and what does the housing look like


assuming you have a 3.0 v6, follow the top hose from your radiator until you can see where it connects on the other end. That is your thermostat housing. Make sure you do this while engine is cool.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero . Alternator problems


Verify your connections at the battery, not just for being tight but for corrosion as well, on the terminal and the cable.

Also check for oil on the bottom of the alternator. The right hand cam seal is notorious for leaking directly onto the alternator, killing them quickly.

That all being said, I haven't seen an aftermarket alternator last on a Montero for more than a month or two; so if your new ones are not OEM, you might consider getting a genuine one if your corrosion and oil leak checks are OK.
