I am having the same issue with my 97 montero sport. I have been through 3-4 alternators in the past two years. I do have an engine oil leak and have been advised that this leak may be causing the failure in the alternator. Otherwise, the mechanic is telling me that we just got a bad alternator.
Have you found any resolution to your electrical/alternator problem yet?

I have a 2003 LS... when that started happening to me the dealership pointed out that there is a rubber boot in the cap of your brake fluid resevoir. Sometimes it inverts... all you have to do is unscrew the cap, push the boot back up into the cap and put it back on. Get in, start your engine and your brake light should be off. I didn't believe it either until I tried it.
#845 of 935 Blower fan problems
Jul 10, 2007 (4:44 pm)
I have a 2003 Montero Sport LS... recently the blower fan started to periodically stop working. The strange part is that if you turn off the engine and restart, it will work fine again. I've checked all the fuses and switches I can think to look at. The dealership can't seem to recreate the problem and I'm 2k miles to the end of my warranty. Any ideas? Oh, and the little lights behind the blower speed dial don't work when the head lamps are on anymore.

2003 Montero Sport LS... Not really the blower fan. What it does is after approximately 30 min. of driving, the AC actually quits cooling. Fan continues to blow, but just re-circulates the air. If I stop at an intersection, power off the engine and restart, it starts to cool again. Is some sort of module failing or is it the AC system/compressor or something?

Infinity sound system- you would think it had subs in it. Sunroof-like Texas. Driving position and room. Best.
Engine- weak in 2hi especially 1-2 shift. Manumatic mode helps out. Rattles when sunroof is closed, little rough riding hitting expansion joints. Not so best. $13,800 w/3500.00 trade in. 68000 mi. Black/beige beige leather.

I am having the SAME problem with my 97 Montero. I have been scouring the internet, and there are a ridiculous amount of people out there who have had the same problem with their battery/alternator. I too have spent over a thousand dollars getting this fixed. Has anyone contacted Mitsubishi about this? It's getting ridiculous.
#851 of 935 fuse location for power mirrors
Oct 02, 2007 (9:47 am)
Does anyone here know where i can find the fuse for the power mirrors? I have a 2001 montero sport. The manual shows 2 diff fuse boxes in the passenger compartment, and the only 1 i can find doesn't have the correct fuse. Thanks.
#852 of 935 transmission computer and alarm system
Oct 10, 2007 (7:03 am)
I have a 00 mitsubishi montero sport 2wd and I'm wondering if I have the transmission computer rebuilt (which also happens to be the engine computer) how can I get the alarm to match the keys again. From the dealer I have heard that re programing the computer would leave me no alternative but to purchase a new immobilizer ECU as well and try to get the TCM and immobilizer re flashed to match the keys to the alarm system otherwise my only other alternative is to buy a new TCM and new matching immobilizer ECU and re flash them to the alarm system and keys. Before I pay to get the TCM rebuilt I'd like to know for sure if it's going to be able to be made to match the alarm or if its better to buy the TCM and immobilizer new and then get them both reflashed. Any help or knowledge on this subject will be greatly appreciated
