When the truck was last running, did you have any warning lights on? Will it start if you try to jump start it?
Let me know..

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yes.....but the light has been on for 4-5 years. Had it reset as there where no issues. It will not jump start.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago
The engine does not turn over if you try to jump start it?
If you turn the key to the ON position, does all the dash warning lights come on? Does the head lights turn on?
Let me know..

no, there is NO power to anything
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago
Battery is good? Are you sure the head lights don't turn on?
If you have a Blown main fusible link you would have no electrical power through the truck, but the head lights would work.
Let me know..

i would have to double check on the headlights and i am currently at work, however i am pretty sure they do not turn on, and we actually replaced the battery thinking that was a good place to start, so the battery is for sure good.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago
If you replaced the Battery, we need to see if the head lights come on. The head lights are wired before the main fusible link. So if they work, the main fusible link is most likely your issue. If they don't work, then we can certainly check more things.
What time do you get out of work so you can check and work on this with me?

When the key is turned to the ON position, can you let me know if the security light is on solid?
Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago
Waiting to hear back from you. I will be stepping out for about 1/2 hour or so at around 8 pm. But will be back online the rest of the evening till around 11 pm

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yes for a brief moment it does.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago
What do you mean for a brief Moment? When the key is turned to the ON position, the security light will either be ON SOLID or OFF, so please let me know..
