Question about Mitsubishi Montero Sport
Car died two nights ago after a massive rain. Now when the key is in the ignition it dings and has lights but then it fades. While being jumped it will have power, ding, and click if turned over. It then dies to get no more power. The battery is good 630-700 when tested. The alternator was tested last year. The fuses seem to be okay. What could it be?
Have your battery tested. Any auto parts store will do it free of charge.lots of oil change places will also do it free of charge.

This shouldn't effect the tail lights but the dimmer switch on my vehicle was defective and made the panel lights work intermittently. No further problems after the switch was replaced.

this is a common issue with these. The door for some reason goes out of alignment and you will have to either adjust the striker or the door track or take it somewhere and have them do it.Its better to have someone else do it so they have to fix it right if they want paid..

check the little rod that sticks out the door jam and make sure its in the proper spot if it got knocked somehow it could be closed but it doesn't know it and will ding

Check the cable connections at the battery and the starter for corrosion.
You may want to use a volt meter ( DC Volts ) for a more accurate reading.
Put the black lead on the battery NEG.,next ( with the meter on ) touch the POS. post/bolt with the red lead and see if you have atleast 11.0 volts, if so, try to bare a bit of the rubber insulation at the battery end and recheck with the red lead. Sometimes the solder weakens which causes a loss of voltage/current.
If reading is still close to or above 11.0 volts, next touch the red lead to the large post on the starter and see what the reading is,if this is still above the 11.0 volts,,,, check the fusable links located near the starter, you must have the same reading on both sides of the fuse ( round black plastic ).
