Unplug the battery. Let the car sit for 20 minutes. Reconnect the battery. Start the car along with the AC. Let it run for 15 minute. (Dont touch anything!) Then take her for a spin around the block, shut it off and restart and it should be fine.
Apperantly the montero has a computer that looses it driving/engine operating settings and defaults to factory. By letting the car sit with no battery your telling the the computer to recalibrate the next time it starts up. I just did it and it worked!
FYI My symptom after installing a new battery was: "it would not idle". It would die as I came to any stop.

The problem happened to me on my sport and it turned out to be fouled spark plugs due a lean condition caused by a clogged fuel filter.

If your car keeps cutting out is because you might have a loose connection to the battery. if your vehicle is running and it looses connection with battery it should still stay running. if it dies it means that you have a bad altenator.

Why does my 2001 mitsubishi montero sport keeps breaking my ac belt


Misalignment, wrong size belt, something is in contact with the belt and causing premature wear. A pulley may be seizing up within the belts route. Or cheap belts, but that usually isn't one of the answers.

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.

My Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2000 does not start. The battery is okey, but it does not start. I beleive it might be the starter. What do I have to check?


Check all your cable connections for being secure, and tight fit. If any are loose in any way; there's your culprit.

I have a 2000 mitsubishi montero sport after I installed a different radio it started shifting hard and dieing while driving it


You probably disconnected the battery and your idle adaptive memory was erased. You need to clean your throttle body. Look here for the solution. First post.
