Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your question and notes what is happening and have a question before we start. Does your vehicle have (DRL) daytime running lights? Does the high beam lights work at all?
Ok there should be two headlight relays under the hood in the main fuse block. Do you have a test light or multi meter?
No no I'm not doubting the relays them selves but a starting point for our diagnosing. Do you have a test light or multi meter?
Excellent, now remove the two headlight relays and check for power, there should be one pin with constant power and one only with key on and light switch on. Also did you check all fuses under dash in that fuse block. Let me know these results.
Aw thanks for that info , then you have a switching problem. sounds like shorting out.
Thanx for that info ,I suspect the battery is not holding enough reserve power, do a proper load test on that battery first, use a carbon Pyle tester for an accurate reading. The reserve power while cranking should be no lower then 9.5 to 10 v
Then the starter circuit is drawing too much as the reserve is too low. Question how old is the battery and did they check it with a carbon testor or one of those quick electronic testers?
Bench testing does not tell the draw it is applying to that battery. Not likely the ign switch will effect the brake lights as you can activate them when car is not running it is a separate circuit.
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
If you put jumper cables to the battery, does the head lights turn on?
