Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima
I have replaced the alternator 3 times in the last year.Now I am told that there is a inherent problem with the heater timer in this model and that the heater stays on which causes the alternator to burn out. The auto timer was disconnected but now I have burnt the alternator for the 4th time! Any solution will be appreciated.
Have your battery checked with a car battery testing machine. It may be on it's way out.
If your battery is flat it can ruin your alternator. If this has been a problem, don't just bump start or jump start the car then drive a few miles, you need to charge the battery FULLY with a charger plugged into the mains.
This may be the reason for the problem.
Let me know if the battery tests ok.
