Customer Question
I have a 98 Infiniti...
I have a 98 Infiniti I 30. Something is draining the battery completely after 10 miles. I have a new battery and have tried a couple different alts. My latest test drive was going fine until I hit the brakes. Everything dimmed, it hesitated and rpm guage went crazy. Nothing worked after that. I have checked all the fuses and most of the 5 million wires. Running out of ideas!!!

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
