Forget the ignition switch for now it is most likely not your problem. I assume a no-start.First have assistant turn on headlamps while you observe from front of car. As you observe, have them try to start car. Did the headlamps light? Did they glow less as the car was cranked? No headlamps or dim headlamps whilw cranking indicate a battery, battery connection, battery cables. Clean or replace these. If headlamps were bright then we can look at the starter. Raise vehicle safely, block rear wheels, put in park. Go under car and take a screwdriver and short across the starter terminals. A bad starter will only spark. If we determine starter is bad, remove the negative battery cable. Under car, observe the size of wrenches needed and then remove the 2 or 3 wires on starter, 2 or 3 starter bolts and any brackets that are in the way. Once unbolted, the starter will be easy to remove. Take it to a auto store that tests these free ,just to reconfirm it is bad. Reverse the procedure.

When it is time to change the brakes on your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero, they will make noises. There could be a grinding or squealing noise that you will hear.

hmmm...maybe you need to change the ignition switch..or the starter..or the altenator...or maybe you need a new battery..I Dont know...if you try to turn it on can you hear the car trying to turn on...if so it could be your altinator or battery....if your engin does not make a noise then it could be the ingnition switch or the starter....or the solution could be as simple as unlocking your stearing wheel.......just pray to GOD its not the ingnition switch or the altinator...because those things are quit expensive!!!!!

You will need to remove the tire and wheel from your 2002 Mitsubishi. Remove the brake pad spring. Remove the brake caliper. Reverse the process to install the new brake pads.

You will needs to get a new part and possibly a new filter. A local automotive shop can help you get the parts and install them.

you'll need to pop off the grease cap then remove the snap ring to get the hub off to get the rotor off.

The ignition timing is set by mapping in software inside your engine management computer. You would have to re-map it to change the ignition timing for any specific set of circumstances. It is not adjustable externally.

Voltage regulator is built into the Alternator/brush carrier. Requires removal and at least partial dis-assembly of the Alternator to change out. Good luck.
