Question about Nissan Frontier
I have a 2001 nissan frontier, i was driving one day and the battery light and brake light came on, proceeded to Autozone and found the ALT bad, Replaced it, it worked 2 weeks and did the same thing, went to autozone, machine said bad battery, replaced, all good for 4 days, happened again, autozone again, bad ALT, again replaced, Also, it will not hold a charge overnight, i can charge it 6:00am in the morning, it'll still turn on at 6:00pm, go to bed, wake up 6:00am, and it's dead, not a single volt, 4 mechanics, 3 alt, 2 batteries, battery cables, have been replaced, Anyone have any ideas?
Hi. this is defiantly a slow or major drain that is occurring within this vehicle. Here is a test that you can preform that will help you find this battery drain so you can illuminate this issue.
--BATTERY DRAINAGE TEST PROCEDURE--
Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.
Please rate and god bless:)

There are no mechanics at autozone well right now you have a amperage drain. that draws down your battery after hours could be as simple as a light you dont see or something bigger take it to the dealer they will find it .
