Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra
I replace my battery of my Nissan sentra.it runs well for about 2 months.my battery is flat every morning.when I jumpstart it the car is fine.when I test is with a tester the power is running down when the car is not running.the battery gains power when the alternater are running.
Power drain is never fun to find. The easiest way to track down your draw is to remove the negative battery cable and hook a 12volt test light between the cable and the negative battery post. The test light will light up showing that you have a power draw. I will usually start by unhooking the alternator as it is quite common for the alternator to loose a diode internally making for a dead short, but still able to charge with engine running. Anyway, unhook the alternator and observe the light. Does it get dim or change at all? if so, replace the alternator. If not, hook the alternator back up and move to the under hood power distribution center. Remove one fuse at a time and look at the test light, if you pull a fuse and the light goes out then you have at least narrowed your search down to one circuit. from there look to the owners manual as to what is associated with that fuse circuit and look for your short.

remove the front 02sensor and drive the car like that, remove means complety take it apart from exaust, if problem goes away or gets so much better then your catalitic converter at the exaust is restricted and need a new one

How long did the 2nd alt. last before it died? The voltage regulator is, I believe, attached to the alternator. Have u had the voltage regulator checked?
