1998. I was having electrical problems before. I would be driving down the road and the car would die and would not crank. So, I switched vehicles and the truck sat for 2 years. I need the truck so I decided to see if I could get it running. I tried jumping it off, had it hooked up for 5 hours. It started cranking, but then stopped. Bought a new battery to see if that would help, but still no cranking. Noticed with the new battery the tail lights were on and would not go off. I checked the 80 amp battery fuse, but it looks ok.

Do you have a volt meter?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, I do not have a volt meter. And looking at past messages, it's a 1998 Frontier.

How about a test light? We need to find a way to see if the starter is getting voltage. Also is this a stick or automatic trans? Won't be online any more today. I will be online tomorrow evening.
