Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
I took my montero sport on a short vacation to Mexico in the Sea of Cortez. I had no problems. However I left my lights on overnight and the battery was dead in the morning, I charged it for most of the day and it started up. However, driving home I started having problems with the car dying everytime I came to a stop and I braked. The idle would be up and then suddenly drop and the engine would die. I would start it up and had to keep my foot on the gas petal to keep it from dropping again and dying on me. Do you know why it is doing this? Thanks,
I had the same problem when I did battery maintenance on my 1988 Montero Sport. The problem was explained to me, that the car's electronic pollution control computer data was erased when the battery is disconnected or the battery totally discharges. The car's computer uses this data to regulate idle speed and other engine factors. The solution given to me was to recheck the battery connections (make sure they are clean, and tighten down), start the vehicle, and just let it sit and idle for about 15 - 20 minutes (without racing the engine or driving the vehicle). This will rebuild and repopulate the car's computer engine data it needs to make adjustments. Hope this helps.
