These parts houses will run a scan on your truck for free now a days. It could be something simple or complicated, you need a scan to tell what codes show up. This will at least give you some direction toward the problem.

2005 nissan titan dome light barely lights up i went to led bulb it didnt help its like i dont have enough power. i just bought the truck recently

Hi. Your dome light symptoms could be due to a faulty connection. I recommend starting at the fuse box then at the light fixture itself. More than likely the light fixture is worn out. But it is important to investigate first. If you run an old "Bulb Style" test light from the battery, to the light fixture. You can test the connections. Probe the bulb contacts first. Clamp the test light to ground to test for power then clamp to power to test for ground. Run this test both at the bulb connections and at the plug on the backside of the dome light fixture. If the lamp on the test light is bright at the plug but dim at the bulb connections. Then the fixture is no good. Look for overheating, corrosion and frayed wires. Good luck.

I experienced a similar problem on a customers 98 S-10. After much research and probing of electrical wiring, it was a faulty ignition switch. This may not be your problem but it might also? Read on it and test it by hooking a test light to the output side after the switch and if the light dies out when it dies, there is your problem. Here is a tip. Put a fuel pressure gage on the vehicle, route it up under the windshield wiper so you can see it, next hook up a timing light to any ignition wire, run the cords so you can have the light in the vehicle (so you can see it flashing not to set timing) drive the truck and as it dies what quits? Fuel pressure or ignition? At least you know what direction to look further into.

Engine sputters while engine check light flashes then truck cuts off and is hard to start again. took it to sears ran battery test that included starter, altenator, and battery... everything was good....

believe Nissan about tune ups a the ECM does it every second
when the tune up fails you run the fault codes and replace the faulty part or fix what has broken
plugs will last the life of the motor especially if you pay the extra for platinum plugs
you can help by regularly using quality injector cleaner and having the codes read every so often
batteries are checked with a load tester
Alternators are bench tested and starter motors have to be removed and bench tested
the codes were oit read properly as the engine light operation is a fault recorded and the engine failing to start are other fault codes

Welcome to the world of BMW's. return the car to the seller. you got a bad one. You got an electrical short draining the battery. Bring a blank check and sign it over to the dealer. They're going to have to run through the entire electrical system to find the short. That work alone is worth more than the a used up 2001 325i.

Brand new 08 Ford Sport Trac (2 hr old) - won't start

Sounds like the battery may be bad. You could remove it and take it to a mechanic or parts store and have them test it for you. Mechanic might charge you 15bucks or so. Most parts stores will test it for free and gladly sell you a new one.
