Sounds like you have a bad or lose ground , lose connection . Did you check the connections at the alternator ?
Two minute Voltage drop test everybody should learn> and use on every car> they work> on..
1. measure from the positive battery POST to the negative battery post.. 14.1 to 14.8 volts is expected. engine running !
2. measure from the Negative battery post to the engine block... 0.04 volts is expected..
3. measure from the negative battery post to the body........................ 0.02 volts is expected.
4. measure from the ENGINE BLOCK to the BODY ............................... 0.02 volts is expected..

If you get more than the 0.04 or 0.02 volts... you have a bad ground between those parts.. a little over can be do to an undersized ground wire.. this test takes about 2 minutes to do.. including the time it takes to get the volt meter out. It will find all the gremlins... save> your hours of work chasing ghosts. Good luck an hope this helps !

Your ECU is what acctivates your fuel pump realy. Put the key on the run possition and pull the ecu fuse for a few seconds and reinstall it ans it should accivate your realy for 5 seconds, Good luck.

SOURCE: trying to find ignition relay module

this is a common and serious problem with tracker/sidekick.

there are 3 solutions1:
ecu is bad and over loads the power feed.
fuel pump shorting and overloading feed.
one of the other solenoids , doing this same thing.

send me email link and i can send you a schematic but
its here anywhy.

and now your answer the main relay is clipped directly to the
bottom of the ECU on a bracket.
one has a green socket (fuel pump relay ) and next to that is MAIN.
come back.

SOURCE: alternator and electrical problems ive changed alternator twice,now clicking noise under dash bat. light comes on and dash lights flicker

check all battey connections and system grounds. Check that the battery has 12v and holds properly when load tested. To check charging system, don't disconnect any battery leads...put a volt meter across the battery. when running, you should have at least 12.9v and volts should not drop. (usual reading is generally at or near 13) at idle with all accessories on voltage should be close to that as well. voltage should not exceed 14.Also make sure that drive belt is not slipping.

SOURCE: 1999 caravan under dash relay clicking

You may want to try pulling connections off BCM (body control module) and cleaning them with contact spray cleaner or similar & re-installing. Sometimes you'll get lucky & this will cure it, without replacing BCM.70846a5.gif

Will not turn over. it just clicks under the dash and hood


If you ear a click under dash , it means that starter relay is working. If you ear a click under dash , it means that starter solenoid is working. Thus i would assume that it's your starter motor that is faulty. Just change your starter motor, everythimg should be fine.

Turn the key all lights go on but nothing happens when you try and start it


1. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
2. Check connections from battery to starter relay.
3. Make sure you have voltage going to the start side (small wire) of the relay with the key in the "start" position.
4. If you don't have voltage going to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in the start positon, then your starter switch is faulty (under dash usually mounted on top of steering column).
5. If you have voltage to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in start position, and it don't click when trying to start your car, then the starter relay is bad.
6. If your starter relay clicks, but engine don't turn over, then the starter is faulty.

Bad eld wire or ecu?


Sounds like the alternator is charging, but the extra voltage is not reaching the battery. You should have battery voltage on the large wire at the alternator with the engine off.
If not, that wire is fried or a fuse is blown.

Location of Alternator relay in 1987 Nissan Pintara 4cyl EFI, new alternator, new battery, fusable link ok, not charging properly, no charge light on dash.


I am assuming that when you say no alt light on dash , you mean that when you first turn key on for the bulb check it won't light. i f this is true then I would be looking at replacing the bulb first. most car's use the bulb in the dash as part of the excitment circut to get the alt to start charging.

2000 XJ8,CAR GOES DEAD AFTER NOT BEING STARTED FOR A WK


when the bat is fully charged , open the bonnet and remove one of the bat. post connections. With the key off (like it is when it sits and dies) and the doors and etc. closed , fan off , radio off.... place the cable you took off on the bat post . if there is a spark or anything... report back.
Also , listen for anything under the bonnet when you do this...
