Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
Have replaced alternator 3 times and battery once. brake/battery light is flickering and alternator not charging
So where all 3 Alternators returned & tested?
Do you have wiring diagrams out ready to go
& a volt meter to start your testing?

Verify your connections at the battery, not just for being tight but for corrosion as well, on the terminal and the cable.
Also check for oil on the bottom of the alternator. The right hand cam seal is notorious for leaking directly onto the alternator, killing them quickly.
That all being said, I haven't seen an aftermarket alternator last on a Montero for more than a month or two; so if your new ones are not OEM, you might consider getting a genuine one if your corrosion and oil leak checks are OK.

could be your ignition switch, first make sure you have power going from your battery to the starter, check at the starter for 12.5 volts then make sure starter has its ground, if that isnt it test the ignition cause thats probably what it is.

It's preety hard as the dealer has normally factory trained tech who are able to make good diagnosis. I would probably look at the replaced alternators and see what went wrong with them then we can work out what to look for. What are the symptoms to make you replace the alternator?
