my 89 nissan pick up runs fine when i have it hooked up to another vehicle. however shortly after i unhook it it will lose power and die. i have a new alternator starter plugs wires and distributor cap(had recently burnt out).
i've checked all my wires and connections and they seem to be fine. anyone know what
or where the issue could be? OR any ideas on how to find the problem?
Sounds like the battery has a shorted cell. You can check this pretty easy, probe the battery with a voltmeter, what is the voltage? Should be 12.4V. How old is it?
