Hello, I have a 1997 Mitsubishi montero sport. I've been having the same problems about every 6 months for the last 2.5 years now. The car runs great for 6 months and then all the sudden I start loosing power. Like I will be driving and I have my radio on, I use the turn signal, or the wipers or turn on the lights and it shuts my radio off and I sense and feel the loss of power. The other day I started my car up and it started funny, I sensed the same problem I've faced for last 6 months. I didn't turn my car off because I knew it probably wouldn't start after I turned it off. I had about 60 miles to drive. I drove the 60 miles and pulled in my driveway. I turned my car off and immediately tries starting it again. It was dead. This is the 4th altenator in 2 years. The one I have in now was brand new and has only been in the car for 5 months. The battery is good. I feel that I have a short somewhere or a bad ground but I have no idea where to start. The other day I had to replace one of my belts. As I was bending over to install the knew belt my stomach was touching the "V 6" logo on the front of the car and I could feel voltage and it felt like a Lil but of a shock. My car was off, so this tells me that I have a bad ground or a short somewhere. Anyone have any ideas? Also I can't hardly role up windows when this happens:(
have the same problem?
