  1. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    So I recently had some issues with the alternator not sending charge. I have bought a brand new OEX replacement. All went well with the change over. When I go to start it, the car starts fine although she won't stay on. Turns itself off once the idles drop. I can keep it going although I need...

    Hi All. Had my alternator replaced three years ago, but noticed recently a burning smell; which I'm pretty sure is the alternator. Coils are also black, and I'm sure they were copper previously / when I last looked. Voltage on the battery at idle is 12.9v / 12.4v when ignition off. So far...

    (1991 TD42 GQ TI) Hi guys, today I took my alternator out to give it a full clean out. Previously it was giving me about 12.9v at idle with no major electrics running and barely keeping up at 12.6 with headlights on. So I cleaned it out today hoping to get a few more volts out of it. Problem...

    Hello guys, I am really lost as to what's gone wrong and I pray it's a easy simple fix. A week ago I hit highway south, a hour into it my Patrol had electrical issue. I popped hood and found battery connection broke. Being whoop whoop and nothing for another 100kms south managed to get another...

    I'm having problems with my alternator not changing the battery. I bought an alternator off eBay and had it rebuilt that was supposedly for an rb30 but ended up having to modify my wiring a bit and it has never worked properly. I have the thick black wire and thinner red wire bolted to the back...

    Gday all, I started up my ZD30 a week ago and heard a noise that sounded like a heap of fuses blowing up. All the eletrics in my car wouldnt work (indicators, wipers, dash, windows, air con etc). The only eletric's that worked were my brake lights and head lights. I checked the fuse box next...

    Hi All, I have a 2002 ZD3.0 auto Patrol and when I first start up in the morning several dash light stay on (ie battery, handbrake sub tank and a few more). After driving for about 5 mins they all go out and everything appears normal. I put a multimeter on the battery terminals on start up...

    I took the alternator off today since it doesnt work anymore. According to the service manual there should be a hatch on the outside of the alternator that you can access the brushes from. Mine do not have that hatch, and it is very hard to put everything together again when those frikkin...

    Just thought I'd post a few pics of the Alternator / Vacuum Pump Spline as I found it this morning. Luckily I wasn't far at all from home, and heading up hill. I heard a funny whirring noise, but by the time I turned the radio down so I could concentrate on where it was coming from, it had...
