Question about 1999 Nissan Frontier
Runs fine only seems to be a little hesitance when starting turns over a little slow but cranks.
Slow cranking will make it hard to start this is not anything to do with the distributor but either a lazy starter motor or a failing battery ,put a drop tester on the battery and see if its ok if so then use a heavy duty induction amp meter on the earth lead and see what the starter motor is drawing ,if more than 180 amps then starter is the problem

There should be a 30 AMP mini blade fuse in the fuse box under the hood that you are probably missing. I assume that since you got the relays with the wiring kit, that you got the kit from a Nissan dealer. If that is true, there should be a fuse in the kit also- in a sealed bag that has the "trailer wiring harness owner's manual" in it.
Hope this is helpful!

it sounds like you have a weak spark. take the spark plug that fires good and put it on each of the other three wires, if it still fires good then the problem is your plugs...energy not coming through them. if no change then swap the wire and plug that fire good together onto another position on the cap, if it fires good in another position then its the wires. if it still doesn't change and the cap and rotor are new, i'd look at the coil.

First thing: Try using the key to move to the locked and then to the unlocked position. If this works, open the tailgate... This also pretty much tells you what the root cause problem is, which is a pressed-in plastic post working its way out (see below).
If no bedliner, just remove metal plate inside tailgate and actuate by hand inside to open. If bedliner, first use a small screwdriver to carefully (don't scratch paint) push in latches at either side of tailgate to open/lower tailgate (if locking/unlocking as above did not work to lower gate and gain access). Next, use two blade screwdrivers to pry out the "buttons" that hold the ends of the tailgate liner where they wrap around the sides, then remove bedliner piece and metal plate, etc.
Once you have access to inside of tailgate, you will see how the mechanism works by pulling up and down on the handle while observing. You will probably find that the slide mechism that locks and unlocks the mechanism has been allowed to move such that it cannot unlock/allow movement of the latching mechanism. This is usually the result of the pressed in plastic anchor being worn/loose. I had some success with cleaning thoroughly with alcohol or brake cleaner, allowing to dry and then using super glue to hold it firmly in all the way. Still have to hold handle up when closing gate and keep key on hand to unlock every time opening, but it was a free repair...

I also have a 98 Frontier 2.4 litre with the same problem. On start up the the thing squeals like crazy I change all the belts and pulleys to no avail. Talked to a mechanic and he said it was probably the A/C clutch and not the belts. I'm having mine replaced this week and will post again to let you know if thats the case. good luck.

i know all about the vegas heat. i live in henderson. the alternator is going out. the regulator is internal so you have to replace the whole alternator.
