Gen 2 Montero / 1996 SR won't start
« on: October 25, 2018, 10:27:53 PM »
My '96 Montero won't start. Gonna trailer it home tomorrow to look at it but doing some research in the meantime. Here's the symptoms, what do you think?

  • Doesn't crank.  Can sometimes hear a click inside the cabin when attempting to start but that's it. Had my dad helping and he thought he saw the belt turn a hair when attempting to start.
  • Voltmeter comes up to 12V very slowly when key is "on" position. If I wait for it to come up, then try to start, I hear more clicking, like if the battery was too low to start. However:
  • Interior and headlights come on and seem bright. but:
  • Plugged my OBDII reader in, but it won't power on even when key is in "on" position.
  • Jumping does no good, even if I leave the cables on for a long time.
  • The battery is about 13 months old.

Found some info in this thread I'm going to check into:,363.0.html but if you have any other ideas that would be swell.

Gen 2 Montero / Getting knuckle back on

I re-booted my driver's side CV boots and while I was at it I replaced some other front end parts.  Now that I'm putting it all back together, I can't seem to lift the lower control arm up high enough before it starts lifting the truck.  I'm guessing I need to loosen the torsion bar or something like that but thought I'd ask the experts here first. Any hints?
