Question about 1986 Nissan 300ZX
The dashboard lights and windshield wipers aren't working, and the alternator doesn't seem to be pushing a charge into the battery when running. All fuses and relays and connections have been checked but still nothing for my '86 300zx turbo 6-cyl. The radio and interior lights have been disconnected and removed to eliminate the possibility they are the problem, as has the AC system. Thoughts?
I had the same problemon my 87 model z. If you are looking at the front of the car THe battery Should be one the left. Just below the battery there is a little black box with some diferent colored wires in it. The one closest the the front of the car(SHOULD BE GREEN) is called a fusible link. You cant tell if its melted by the naked eye most likely, but if you pull on that wire i guarantee that its burnt. Touch the two burnt ends back together and vialah, everything cuts back on. Make sure your battery wasnt installed backwards. That was the reason mine blew.

Sounds like a bad alternator, but may be a bad voltage regulator as well. If that goes, it'll have the same symptoms as a bad alternator.

Check the body\engine ground coming off the battery
