Question about Nissan Hardbody

1 Answer

We have a Nissan Safari with no power, batteries very low and have been charged up, put back in to car and still no power, nor connection, nothing at all when turning the key on. 1) have we put the batteries in right it is a 24 volt diesel. Is there a special way of reinstalling them? 2) could it be another electrical fault that would draw the power as one battery had a little more power in it then the other. hope that with what you have you will be able to perform a miracle and let us know what the problem is. Thank you for your help PS the choose model did not have Safari so I picked hard body otherwise it would not work

SOURCE: 24 volt charging problems .2

A 12 volt battery is actually 13.2 volts fully charged. If you are reading 16 volts, you are probably getting extranious voltage from the system somewhere, especially if the vehicle is running when you check the voltage. The alternator will put out about 15-18 volts to charge the battery normally, and yours may put out 28-32 volts to charge them in series, but the batteries, when disconnected, should never read more than about 13.2 volts each. Typically, it will read about 12 1/2 volts when disconnected. COMPLETELY DISCONNECT BOTH OF THE BATTERIES. If you still read 16 volts when it is disconnected, you must have a bad meter because the battery can't produce that much voltage, no matter what. (Six 2.2 volt cells connected in series inside the case.) Put the meter on a known good battery on another car that is not running and see if you get the same reading. It sounds like the other battery is almost dead, regardless, and it sounds like your series/parallel switch may be malfunctioning. (That is the switch that puts the battery in series to run the 24 volt starter, then puts the batteries in parallel to run the remainder of the vehicle on 12 volts. This is all assuming that you have a diesel vehicle with a 24 volt starter and that is why you have two batteries.

SOURCE: 2001 GMC Yukon Denali XL -intermittent dead battery

The wiper should not move regardless of battery change as the wiper switch should have isolated it.It seems to be the only ,as you say,strange thing and would be inclined to believe that that is the probable cause of your fault.Do like your testing method and hope you track the fault down.Good luck and happy new year.

SOURCE: Battery dies while sitting idle

Well it could be possible that you have a cell that is going bad.. This would cause battery to fade with little draw from onboard accessories (ie: clock, etc...) Why not spend a couple dollars and install battery isolation switch you can flip when vehicle is expected to sit for a duration... I know this doesnt solve the drain problem you have but could be a solution for not having to jumpstart it when you need to ude it..Good Luck

SOURCE: Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

1993 nissan maxima relays and fuses

Start at the battery. First make sure it has a full charge. Do not proceed until you know the battery is good and fully charged. Use a voltmeter to see if charged, or take it to a parts store for testing-it is a free service, and tells if your battery is good and can hold a charge.
Next thing is to check your battery cables. Are the connections clean and tight, both at the battery and where the other end connects? Make sure no corrosion is on the terminals-that will rob power and may not let the battery charge up or put out power.
After the battery and the cables are checked, now you should get power to the fuse block, do your headlights work now?
Follow the power path-from the battery to the fuse block. Check all your fuses under the e hood, you may have a blown fuse.

Trouble starting 04 maxima then once it starts put it in gear and nothing happens.

Modern vehicles need minimum voltage to operate the electronics. It is possible for the vehicle to start, but not run properly dye to the low voltage. Most likely your battery is low, or bad and we intend charge. Also your alternator may be bad.

When I turn on the power on the remote control and on the Off Road Safari the wheels run constantly. The only way I can stop them is to turn off the remote. Does anyone have any advice?

is this an rc car..a toy has low power issues and is getting a default signal from the handset..charge the batteries or put new fully charged ones in it..also what frequency does this run on..the 27mghz handsets are within the signal range of most cordless phones and you will get interference..

Nissan 2002 Pathfinder is draining its battery

If it's clicking, it's not a fuse , its a Relay. Relays Do sometimes stick. Or it can be clicking due to low voltage that was caused by something else.

To see if that's your issue, charge the battery, take the Relay out of the car and see if the battery stays charged after 12 hours.
If teh battery stays.. then first step is to replace the relay.

Check Charging System/told not the alternator

Check your battery connections - where the cables connect to the battery posts AND where the cables connect to the starter/main power feed and where the ground cable connects to the engine and/or frame. A poor or corroded connection can cause intermittent problems and poor charging performance.

My 1997 nissan hardbody charges but not enough to run it I have new alternator and batt wat else could be wrong

Put a voltmeter on the battery when it is running. There should be around 13.5 volts for a proper reading.
A little confused by your request: the battery does not power the car when it is running. The alternator supplies all the power to run everything. The battery is only used to start the car, and is then re-charged by the alternator when running. If the alternator is not putting out enough to run the car, then there might be a loose connection somewhere. Check all battery and alternator connections for clean, tight connections. If good, have the new alternator tested. Sometimes you can get a defective one.

Battery light and brake light were on, card wont

Nissan truns the brake and battery light on when there is a charging issue. When you say it wont start does that means it craks or no? If it does not crank I would attempt to charge the battery then try to start it and check the charging system.
