Surely sounds like a low voltage issue. Relays commonly flash between open and closed when the power drops below 10 volts. Also other indicators in your descrp. explain the same. I would suggest giving the battery a good charge. Also if you can get your hands on a multi-meter and verify voltage that would be good. You can get one at walmart for around 10 bucks. Volts DC is what you want. Besides if you get it you'll def find other uses for it. Let me know if you need farther help

I want to install daylight rolling lights, how should I wire it to fuse box?

Turn the ignition key off. Check a fuse slot with the help of a 12volt tester pen for continuity and find a slot which does not show any voltage. Now turn the ignition key on and check the same fuse slot. If it does show 12 volts on tester pen then its will be your connection point for your DRL's positive wire. Turn the ignition key off and tap your DRL's red wire (+ve wire) to this slot and connect your DRL's black wire (-ve wire) to your car's body. Thats it then....

Are you getting injector pulse from the computer ?

sounds to me like your battery is no good. replace battery. how ever after the replacement of batery you will need to go to nissan dealer and have the "steering angle sensor"reset, because your VDC light will be ON on the dash.

I have a 1988 Nissan Sentra. When I turn the key

Your problem is definately not a relay. It sounds as if the starter contact in your ignition switch is bad. The solution is to replace the ignition switch.

AC/Heat Fan runs continuously and Rear end roaring noise

Sounds like the wheel bearing on the right rear hub may be defective, that would cause the noise if the tires are ok. As far as the fan goes not sure this isn't working as designed.
