Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup
Thefirst time it died i thought it was the alternater, but i pulled it and napa said it was fine. replaced the battery and a day later it was dead. i know its a short but dont know were to start.
These type of problems are VERY hard to track down. I would start by putting a VOM meter (a small electronic meter to read voltage, amps or resistance) on the battery while the engine is running and the high beam lights are on. Take a reading from the + post of the battery. At this point it should read 13.8 volts or greater. I would also check for loose grounds. I would also take out all the fuses and see if your battery is dead the next morning. Then put the fuses back in one at a time and see if any spark or arc when you put them back in, that could be a sign of a draw on that curcuit. I would note that curcuit and then go and check that curcuit. These types of problems will cause you to loose your hair and your religion!
Much good luck and write back if any thing changes and I'll see if I can help again.
