Tip & How-To about Mitsubishi Montero
This would be a case history. Probably too difficult for a mechanic to have troubleshoot.
Symptom- A fusible link kept blowing out. (It looked like a big fuse rated at 200 amp if I remember right.
Cause - At the back of the vehicle by the passenger side, there is a factory amp that powers the vehicles sound system that had caused the short.
Solution - Unplug the factory amp, causing the short. Open it up and replace the large diode with a good one. (I used one I pulled out of a junk circuit board.)
Note* The vehicle was taken to several different shop but could not find the problem. This was definitely a job for an auto mechanic who understand electronics. I saved the customer lots of money because he did not have to buy a factory amp, and pay a dealership 90 bucks an hour while troubleshooting the vehicle. which would have easily ran him a thousand bucks or more. Since the problem was evaluated accurately, there were no wasted money buying unnecessary parts.
