Got a 85 Nissan 720 4x4 with the 2.4 engine with Weber.Have them test the alternator after you take it off,also check your fusible links and your positive battery cable connected to starter and the negative battery cable that is grounded to engine.My truck has a volt meter telling me what the system is doing which normal is 14.5 volts while running,battery should read about 12.6 when not running,could also be that your alternator belt is loose,maybe change that while your at it.You can crank engine up,have hood open,rev engine up and watch belts turn to make sure they are not loose.I f you need,I can send you a free repair guide on your Nissan.Here's mine. 85 Nissan 720 4x4 Silverbullet 4 with Samantha YORKIE at the wheel look out

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?

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:)

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.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

The battery light came on checked battery it was dead so I replaced it with a new one the battery light will not go off????


-sound like you're already replace the battery. did you...?
-If so it's okay. Looks like the problem is the alternator no charging.
-Here is the basic way to test by yourself.
-Turn on the car, let it run to normal idle then Use ohm meter to check power at battery terminal. If you get 12.5 or below. the problem is the alternator. Or take it to auto zone to check for you.

Good Luck

Okay, so I bought a 2001 Ford Focus zx3 5 speed, and when I went to go test drive it, the alternator went (so I thought). anyway, he lowered the price, and I still got it and replaced the alternator. about...


your alternator is still under warranty get a new one, based on your info thats the problem, just make sure when installing the new one the battery polarity is correct because that is one cause of damaging the alternator, reversed polarity will burn regulator ic, once you have installed the new alternator run the engine on idle remove one of the battery connector if the engine still run it means the alternator is charging, if engine stops check wiring connection

Battery warning light came on while driving then later went off. Voltage at battery was 13-14+ then only 12-13 when light went back on later.


Try taking the cables off the battery terminals and cleaning them with a battery brush. Then make sure they are tight when you put them back on. They may not have been tightened properly when the new battery was installed. If that doesn't work take the battery back to where you bought it and have them test it under load. It may be new but it may have one cell that is weak. If that checks good then I would start the car and remove the positive battery terminal. Use your multimeter from the ground to positive terminal to make sure the voltage regulator is putting out enough voltage.

Battery light comes on and off then kills my car


might be due to the battery being bad and may need replacement but if the battery is holding a charge then it might be due to a short out in some place
