More than likely the electronic turn signal flasher is defective. Instructions
Remove the Old Flasher Relay
Using your socket wrench, disconnect the negative cable from the car's battery terminal. The negative terminal and cable are identified on the top of the battery using the minus ("--") symbol. Once the cable is disconnected, wrap the metal end completely with the black electrical tape. Lay the cable down and make sure it's not touching any metal surfaces.
2Open the driver side front door and kneel or position yourself so that you're able to see under the dashboard.
3Locate the automotive flasher relay under the dashboard on the right-hand side. The flasher relay is about the same size as an ice cube. It will be held in place by one screw and will have a three-pronged wiring harness connected to it.
4Remove the screw holding the flasher relay in place and slowly lower it from underneath the dashboard.
5Hold the flasher relay in one hand, and with the other hand gently disconnect the wiring harness plug from the relay. Never separate the flasher relay by pulling the harness off by the wires, always hold the plastic harness plug itself.
Install the New Flasher Relay
6Inspect the new flasher relay to make sure it isn't damaged. Hold the new flasher relay and the old one side by side and compare them, ensuring that they are exactly the same.
7Carefully plug the wiring harness connector into the new flasher relay. Make sure no other wires are intertwined as you raise the flasher and harness back into position under the dashboard.
8Secure the flasher relay by returning its mounting screw.
9Unwrap the negative battery cable's connector and reattach it to the car's battery terminal. Turn the power on or start your car and test out the new flasher relay to make sure it's working properly
DID YOU GAP SPARK PLUGS AT 0.060 FOR 3.1L ENGINE OR 0.045 FOR THE 3.4L ENGINE.DID YOU BUY AC R44LTSM SPARK PLUGS. DID YOU BUY AC DELCO SPARK PLUG WIRES.BECAUSE IF YOU BUY WRONG TYPE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES CAR WILL MISFIRE.
The easiest way personally to check for a misfire is (with old set of plug wires though) ground a test light. Poke through each plug boot at distributor. If it makes engine miss more not a problem cylinder. When you get to one where there is no change, that is the cylinder that is missing. Not saying that it will cure your problem, but it would rule out the good cylinders that are operating correctly. Make sure you don't touch bare metal because it will shock you. It might not miss either unless under load. Firing order is 18436572 ccw on cap. 1 cylinder drivers side closest to radiator. Drivers side 1357,passenger side 2468. Looking from front of engine to back of engine.
First go buy the new spark plugs. While you are there ask the gap of the plugs, they may need to be adjusted before you install them. If so use a gaping tool to adjust the gap. One at a time remove the spark plug wire and remove the old spark plug with a spark plug socket. Turn it counter clockwise. Pull it out and put the new spark plug in and firmly tighten it, dont over do it though you dont want to strip it out. Put the spark plug wire back on and move to the next until the job is complete.
ok get power to truck turn key to on position pull plug off altenater one of then should be hot its call an exciter wire to excit the altenater to starg charging but first before all that check the alt. fuse inside your truck
I'd add the information on how to test the coil packs yourself to make
it a more complete thread...
QUOTE How to verify if your coil packs work!
Engine worked with: 1996 maxima
Requires: An ohmmeter (cheap purchase at radio shack....)
Conditions: Make sure your engine is cold, or it'll be hot on your hands
you have 6 Ignition coil packs. 3 up front and 3 near your firewall.
(when asking for new ones, they are referred to as L and R)
3 are hidden behind the plastic piece on your engine that says NISSAN...
simply remove the bolts and remove the plastic piece.
once removed, you should see 3 coil packs. un plug and test them one at a
I won't go into how to remove them since it should be fairly obvious Simply remove both bolts
(do one coil pack at a time...) and pull the coil pack out. i had one
where it was very hard to get out... so you may have to pull hard...
Once out, look at the area where you removed the electrical plug. You
should see a "+" on the back end of the electrical plug. There should
also be the letter "B"....
the spot where you see the positive symbol, means that's prong number
one on the electrical connector.
Turn on your ohmmeter and place the positive wire on the 1st prong in
the electrical plug of the coil pack. The negative wire should be
touching the middle prong. Verification of the ohmmeter at this time
should say "0" aka infinite... if it's anything else, the pack should
be changed. Next test: reverse the wires... positive on the middle prong
and negative on the 1st prong.... on a new coil pack, it should give a
value of approximately 1.3-1.7 mega ohms. If any of the readings are
off, replace the coil pack.
Note: Firewall coil packs are extremely easy to find, simply look in the
cracks of the intake header. you'll see 3 similar looking coil packs to
the front ones. The exception with these is that they are longer and
look a slight bit different. removal is the same process as the front
coil packs. Simply pay special attention to not dropping the screws in
the intake area... it'll be hard to get out.
to test: follow the front coil pack testing method. Look for the
Positive symbol, this is your first prong... and go from there. END QUOTE
There are no spark plug wires on the 2000-up Northstar engines. They use coil on plug design. First remove the engine service cover.(The Pretty plastic peice that has the Cadillac symbol on it) Then disconnect the coil connector which sits to the right of the coil and should just snap off by hand. Next If you remove the screws that holds the coil pack (8 screws) to the top of the cam covers, you will see 4 black round rubber boots that sit on top of the plugs. Pull the boots free to expose the plugs. The tops of the spark plugs sit directly underneath
Go through your spark plug wires and mark which plug it is on. Once you have done this then you can pull the wires off each spark plug. Once the plug wires are off take a spark plug socket and gently apply some pressure to loosen the spark plug. Once its loose you should be able to reach down and remove the plug by hand. Once you have the plug off grab your new plug. Make sure it has the correct gab setting for your engine size and then install the new plug. once you have the new plug in gently snug it down. Do this with the rest of your plugs. Once all your plugs are in place and snugged down then put your plug wires back on each plug (This is where the labeling comes in handy). It is also a good idea to get a good set of plug wires and just replace them while you are at it.
