SOURCE: 2000 Nissan Maxima will not

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

SOURCE: passenger side head light not work, Battery drain

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.

Removing the radio disconnected the interior lights.


It sounds like the power wire fed the lights as well. Most of the time its just a piggyback and when you break the connection it disrupts anything powered by it. Although I must admit that this would be a wired wiring but stranger things have happened.

the very first thing I would check is the fuse under the dash. If you it any of the wires taking the radio out you may bhave blown the fuse that protects it and it is very common for a fuse to control and protect more than one item such as a radio , interior lights and cig lighter all at once. If the fuse is blown then problem solved. If not your going to need a tester to find out what wires are poer, negative and what goes where.

92 buick lesabre, all interior lights, radio, seet belt tone im guessing


First of all, you had a short in the electric system that included your cigarette lighter. When you saw the spark, you saw the result of a short. What you are experiencing now is a bad ground in the system.

This is what we refer to as stray voltage, which is why your lights are staying on. This is not aa fuse problem. If you haven't unplugged your cigarette lighter, do so. You are going to need the services of an automotive electrian to solve this problem. The reason your cigarette lighter may have been unplugged is that someone else knew of the existing problem.
