Yes I can help you. Change your coolant temperature sensor and all will be well. Only use Nissan, Bosch, or NGK part.

HI there .... by the sounds of what you are saying, you have a bad starter. One way to find out for sure is if you can get at the starter, tap it with a hammer and then try starting or have someone try to start the car while you are tapping on the starter. if the car starts then you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out

jay: There are two fuses for the headlights. make sure you have checked both. The fuses are located in the engine compartment in the black box and they are 15 amps each. When you say you checked the bulb, did you try another bulb in it's place? Did you check to make sure you have solid ground connections?
In terms of the electrical draw: The first thing I would check is the alternator. One way you can check sometimes if the draw is strong enough. Get a hacksaw blade or something similar in size and thickness. like a small metal ruler. With the battery connected and the key removed from the ignition, place the blade flat on the front of the alternator pulley. If it sticks or if you feel a small amount of magnetic pull, the alternator has a short and is creating the draw.
Outside of that you would need an amp meter which you could put between the battery cable and the battery terminal to measure the draw. From there you could start pulling fuses one by one until you notice a drop on the meter. Typically a few tenths of an amp draw is normal because you have certain components which use very small amounts of current to maintain memory such as your radio.
Let me know how you make out. I'll be more than willing to further assist you if you need it.

Check both positive and negitive cables and make sure that they are still intacked and that there is no corotion on the connection.
