You8 have the wrong battery. Get the identical one with the terminals reversed or, get a longer wire.

2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Alternator is fine and starter is too. New battery. Former owner started having problems after putting in a new radio. What could make my battery not stag charged


Apparently there is a "dead short" that is draining the battery. If a power wire or connection (plus side) is in contact with a ground wire or source this will create a short that drains the battery. When the battery is charged feel the wires and all connections to the radio and you may feel heat from the bad connection. Best bet is disconnect the entire set up and start over. It is best if the wires stay color coded (if you replace any). This dead short could cause a fire or damage any other wiring it is connected to. If the prior owner ran a new wire from the battery make sure those connections are tight and not rubbing any bare wires that could touch a ground source. (Most metal parts in vehicles are connected to the ground side of the battery. Also check your speaker connections from the unit to each speaker. Those wires can not touch each other or any metal. I hope this helps.

Looking for the fuse that works with alternator.


no standard fuse in a fuse panel some vehicles have a master fuse/link that attaches inline if looking to pull fuse follow battery positive to where it links up with alternator some are by battery some by radiator but if its a fusible link not going to be able to pull it ---and as to a regular fuse their is none and some vehicles dont have any short in alternator usually means no out put if short in wiring than would have a constant drain on battery --their is no fuse that would stop that if short in wiring test the lines and replace the wires their is usually about 10 ft of wiring --if alternator pull connector from it

Hi i have a 91 toyota surf 2:4 turbo diesel import,It has a new alternator,battery still being drained.


ever heard of get it serviced/ sure.
you have a short,
if you have no tools you will not find it.
but there are tests.
no photo of warm wire, are we to guess.that, how?

Shorts 101, and great, videos.
finding shorts on any system or vehicles are same, cars boats, planes, trains, and same tactics. all the same.
better tools, easy to find
also that hot wire, if not stock we can do nothing
if its the starter wire, then there is a short on that wire.
if crankng made the starterwire hot
  1. rusty lug
  2. bad cable
  3. shorted starter
  4. or something else on that line is shorted,FSM shows schematics on all cars.
pull fuses, pull loads, are free test. beyond that takes an ammeter

2001 chrysler town and country. A\C heat Blowers will not work when controlled my front main pannel. It is a auto temp controlled system. The rear blower will work but no heat when controlled by the rear...


Hi,
This may be similar to what I just fixed on an '00 dodge:
http://www.dodgeintrepid.net/showthread.php?t=89711

Accessing the Integrated Diagnostic System:

Procedure for Automatic Temp Control (ATC) equipped vehicles:

With the engine ON and the vehicle stopped set the temp to 75*F. Next hold down the Floor, Mix and Defrost buttons until the ATC display begins to flash. While the display is flashing, the system will run it's tests and calibrations.

When the display stops flashing, the tests and calibrations are complete.

The ATC display can only display one error code at a time. Any stored codes can be scrolled through by pressing the Panel mode button once for each code. DO NOT press any other button or you will have to start the test over. Note the codes and refer to the list below to determine what system is malfunctioning.

List of Climate Control DTCs:
23: Blend door actuator feedback failure (bad servo)
24: Mode door actuator feedback failure (bad servo)
25: Ambient temp sensor failure
26: ATC In Car thermister failure (ATC only, bad ATC head or ATC head disconnected while battery is connected)
27: ATC in car sensor failure (ATC only)
31: Recirculation door actuator stalled (stuck door or bad servo)
32: Blend door actuator stall failure (stuck door or bad servo)
33: Mode door actuator stall failure (stuck door or bad servo)
34: Engine temperature message not received (ATC only, bad ATC head or bus failure)
35: Evaporator sensor failure
36: ATC control communication failure (bad ATC head or bus failure)
37: Blend door actuator output shorted to battery (bad servo or wiring fault)
38: Blend door actuator output shorted to ground (bad servo or wiring fault)
39: Mode door actuator output shorted to battery (bad servo or wiring fault)
40: Mode door actuator output shorted to ground (bad servo or wiring fault)
41: Recirculation door actuator output shorted to battery (bad servo or wiring fault)
42: Recirculation door actuator output shorted to ground (bad servo or wiring fault)
43: Common door shorted to battery (probable wiring fault, could be a servo that failed in an odd manner)
44: Common door shorted to ground (probable wiring fault, could be a servo that failed in an odd manner)
45: A/C control blend door input open or shorted with respect to ground (MTC only, wiring fault or bad servo)
46: A/C control blend door shorted to battery (MTC only, wiring fault or bad servo)
47: A/C switch failure (MTC only)
48: A/C control mode door input shorted to ground (MTC only, wiring fault or bad servo)
49: A/C control mode door input shorted to battery (MTC only, wiring fault or bad servo)

Alternator not charging


Possible short to the starter. I had a similar problem with my '91 mercury capri. I replaced the alternator and battery but the alternator would not charge the battery. My local mechanic spent hours tracking it down, but finally found the problem. Have not had a problem since. Good luck

It has a short that drains the battery and when I hooked up a battery booster a yellow and grey wire burnt in two


The two wires that you have mention may have shorted out probably due to a worn out wire or loose connection. Inspect the entire length of the wire if possible. Have them replaced with the same type of wiring.
