Question about 1997 Nissan Pathfinder
Find each end of the earthing straps that connect the battery to the chassis, and the chassis to the engine and transmission. Take these connections off and test the cables for continuity, bend them and move them like they would be when the engine and trans move when acelerating and engine braking, as well as going over bumps etc then sandpaper the earthing points on the chassis, engine etc and both ends of the cables until they are bright metal.
Dab on some dielectric grease or I use copper slip to reduce future corrosion and tighten up all the connections good and tight.
Electrickery requires a return path to the battery that is just as good as the large positive cables supplying to the various components. If there is a break in the earth cables or corrosion etc the movement of the vehicle while driving could randomly act like an on off switch...........
