another symptom is the vehicle draining battery rapidly when the starter wire is connected after starting the truck
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

the main cable or the solenoid wire?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
he says it a red wire that clips into the starter.
also the previous owner told me there are some burnt wires in a white box where the fuses are held some where at the front of the truck.
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago
