Asked by Mar 25, 2016 at 04:26 PM about the 1993 Toyota Pickup 2 Dr STD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dead battery...because I run with the lights on, like Canadian cars are
required to do...only trouble is they get left on because there is no chime or
buzzer to warn me they have been left on (like my MINI faithfully warns me)~
will need a schematic for this model (electics were bastardized by a THUMP
THUMP guy who never changed the oil) and a Nissan strange connector
used on the stereo...goin inside of that is like brain surgery~...but if I had
the colors of what it Supposed to have....perhaps an entire electrical
harness will show which colors do what....right now have a dead
battery...because I'm stupid....but might be reminded of the right path to
take on this one~ Neighbor says "screw it" this is America...run BLIND is OK
in the states~...mwoof~

Here's what I would do. Buy a small 12 volt light at the auto store. Mount is somewhere on your dash. Splice the power to the switch into your headlight power wire. Now you have a little warning light on your dash. Problem solved for $5.

a buzzer....will ignore the light...just as I leave the lights on...schematic so I can navigate where this belongs...perhaps there is a relay that is unplugged? ignore the dash lights...another light will be ignored~
