Question about 1986 Nissan 300ZX
I hooked up the battery backwards for about 15 sec. Now the car will start and run...but batt won't charge...also, int lites dont work, horn wont blow, headlamp doors wont come up, tail lights wont work. Fuses inside car are ok...Alternator replaced, but still have problems above. PLEASE HELP???
I got the answer for you! in your engine compartment on the passenger side near the battery is a box that has,what lookes like plugs in it. take out the one on the farthest right(on the cover it says BAT) just relpace it or bypass and you will be set! let me know how it works out Parker217@live.ca

Your problem is you blew a fusible link. Located in a black box in front of the battery are the fusible links. The one lablled battery is blown. The fusible link is a loop of insulated wire that will melt in cases where too much current is passing throught the wire. You will notice a burnt smell as well. A simple continuity test of the fusible link will show that it is open. Go to a junk yard or order through nissan and you will be good to go. If you make your own make sure of the type of wire and the gauge.

Battery will not help. You likely blew the rectifier in the alternator. (*And maybe a few other things as well.*) That's why it will start and run, but the alternator is pushing 0 volts/amps. Start with replacing this, and then go on down the line...such as bulbs, headlamp motors etc, that remain non-functional after you replace the alternator. Also, you will likely want to check the voltage regulator, and make sure that didn't blow as well. (*This item directly affects what your alternator outputs.*)
