Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi, I bought this tester from The Source a couple of years ago and it had been working. I hadn't used it for several months until the other day when I took it out of it's container to use it on some AA batteries I had. One of the batteries was new and the other two I wasn't sure about. The tester did not work on all three. The same thing happened when I went to The Source. I haven't mishandled the product and don't know why it stopped working. Thank you, Barbara Todd

if the idling of your engine only dies off at first gear, you may have a clutch problem. check first if you have fluid in your clutch fluid reservoir, or if its cable make sure that the cable is pulling the clutch lever for a reasonably long travel. there may be leaks in your clutch master or slave cylinders. If your engine behaves well during neutral. it has to be a clutch problem

I know its not what anyone would want to here but sounds like a short. Best thing to do is first wiggle your key switch when the vehicle in in the on position then at the same time try to check to see if locks or windows are working. Then do the same in while the rig is running. If that dont work your ignition is fine and you need to take off door panels and check and wiggle all conections on window motors and lock motors and look for melted or burt wire or some that might have got hot. If all is good there you need to go to the back of the fuse box were the fuses to those items plug in and check there. As far as the service engine light goes either take it to the nearest Schucks or AutoZone and they will check it for free if not cycle the key on and off 3 times and on the 3rd time leave it in the on position look at your odometer light and it will flash a code remember that code and type Dodge then the code on yahoo search and it should tell you why your light is on Hintz whay sensor is bad. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: BATTERY DIES OUT IN 2-3 DAYS.
are you saying that you got this battery from autozone? I went thru three batteries in a week from autozone because the lot# was bad. It,'s quite possible that you have either a short that is draining the battery or that the alternator isnt charging properly. To do a fast check, start the car then remove the positive battery cable with the car running. If it stays running, theres a chance its ok. If it dies, It's most likely the alternator or the voltage regulator Diods. On most cars, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. I would take it to autozone and have the charging system checked

With all vehicles using electronic computer management systems, there is always very low consumption of power from the battery, as these systems are running all the time. However even with those systems running you should be able to leave the car parked for a period considerably longer that one week.
As the AA has confirmed that the charge rate is correct from the alternator, I would suspect the replacement battery. Make sure that the size (The amp hour capacity is correct for your vehicle) If it's too small the systems may drain it during the time indicated....
I doubt very much that you have a short circuits in the vehicle, but to be on the safe side take it along to a shop who have an auto electrician and let them carry out the relevant tests.
I suspect the battery.

hand it over to a mechanic or Nissan. If you recently had an M.O.T and it went of quickly then ask for a refund, even better, ask him to take a look at the car again
