Take it to someone with a battery/charging system tester and let the test your charging system this machine will also check your starter for drag also, have you check for loose connections on your cable

Battery light indicates alternator failure. If you have a voltmeter, check voltage at battery with engine running. Should be at least 14 volts. If no voltmeter, remove alternator and take it to parts store for testing.
If the alternator is bad and that is your only problem, the truck should jump start, but it will not go far unless the battery is charged. OK?

95 p/u why would a brand new alternator fail after about two months?


Hi:
Auto parts do fail, sometimes too soon, But some of the reasons a alternator could fail prematurely, would be if you somehow had a dead battery, and jump started the truck, sometimes the full current draw to charge a dead battery can kill an alternator. An overtightened belt can cause the alternator bearings to overheat too, killing it.

Got a 85 Nissan 720 4x4 with the 2.4 engine with Weber.Have them test the alternator after you take it off,also check your fusible links and your positive battery cable connected to starter and the negative battery cable that is grounded to engine.My truck has a volt meter telling me what the system is doing which normal is 14.5 volts while running,battery should read about 12.6 when not running,could also be that your alternator belt is loose,maybe change that while your at it.You can crank engine up,have hood open,rev engine up and watch belts turn to make sure they are not loose.I f you need,I can send you a free repair guide on your Nissan.Here's mine. 85 Nissan 720 4x4 Silverbullet 4 with Samantha YORKIE at the wheel look out

Truck been stitting about 5yrs bought new battery and starter but engine still wont turn whats my next step?


tow it! if the rear wheels skid, pull the plugs (1 per cylinder) and put some oil in each cylinder. Tow it and it should certainly turn over a few times. Then put back the plugs and jump start it
