2000 Nissan Frontier won't crank and no dash lights?

Asked by Dec 10, 2013 at 07:54 AM about the 2000 Nissan Frontier 4 Dr SE Crew Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got in my 2000 Nissan Frontier last night and it didn't crank. At first it had no power then I went to jump it off and it had power until I tried to crank it then it died again. I do not know what to do.

First step is to have the battery checked out. You can remove it and take it to a local auto parts store and have them do it, or you can test it yourself with a multimeter, put it on volts and measure. Should be 12.3V or more. How old is the battery?

Not sure. I've only had the truck a week. But I even tried putting another battery in and the same thing happened. The headlights come on and the alternater works. So I'm clueless.
