Made a terrible clicking sound but did not turn over. Maybe battery? I had it serviced about a month ago and said battery was fine. Car has been sitting a little over a week though. I hope it is not computer issues.

2001 Montero Sport: Alternator was not charging properly. Would only seem to charge while vehicle was running at a higher rpm than idle.On the way to work the car stalled violently for a split second, then all power to accessories(interior lights, door locks, power windows, radio) went out. Transmission will now not shift into 4th gear and N is flashing on instrument panel. Took car to shop and technician said alternator was not putting out any charge at all. Had alternator replaced; also replaced fuses for door locks, radio and power windows. Windows work, but doors will not lock when car is started. Checked fuse box in engine compartment and found out that100 amp fuse for alternator was blown. Replaced it; now interior lights are working but doors will still not lock. Also transmission still wont shift into 4th gear and jerks hard when shifting from Park to reverse.
