Gen 2 Montero / weird electrical issue.
« on: December 26, 2018, 11:11:46 PM »
So, my 1999 3.5L SOHC Monty is acting up. My girlfriend called that the truck would not start after shutting it off. she noticed that the radio started flickering and stopped at a gas station. it was still running, but as soon as she turned it off it would not start. I got there and it acted like it had a dead battery (battery is a week old and alternator about 3 month old). I connected a meter and battery had 12.7 volts. I connected my jumper kit and immediately the alarm went off. after starting the truck the meter was reading 14.1 volts, so the alternator seems to be working. I started driving it home (1 1/2 miles) and halfway there I noticed that the radio, compass and gauges, some dash lights started flickering. then the vehicle power started cutting in and out, like if on a rev limiter. it stalled again when I came to a stop. I jumped it and it started but it would not idle unless I gave it gas. the whole way the power is cutting on and off. I also noticed that when applying the brakes the dash flickers and when the engine cuts off I hear a clicking sound from under the passenger dash area.
 Help me troubleshoot this. could it be the factory alarm acting up? ECU craping out?

Let me know what you think and were to start. I did change the alternator because it stopped charging, I think oil got to it. and then the battery would not hold a charge if I did not use the truck for 3 days. so I bought a new one.
