    Hi guys I'm in the process of fixing up some wiring in my GU (2002 ZD30) as I've been having some battery issues. The main battery terminals are very corroded. Also, the previous owner installed a dual battery setup which isn't wired very well. I'm going to redo the dual battery wiring, but I...

    Hey, I am currently doing a second battery in the patrol, I am going to have it in the back, and i am also considering doing a false floor too. was chasing some photos and ideas of how people have mounted battery and floor, with and without the middle seats, and if anyone has a set up where...
  4. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Got a 91 GQ which has some eccentric electrics. I've got a dual battery running off a Redarc charger. Knowing nothing about electrics would it be safe to just take out the dual battery and run it without the dual? (i don't need the dual battery anymore). Or if I take it out do I need to get in...

    Hi, I am about to setup a Lifepo4 Aux battery in my GU 2014 CRD Ute. I have a couple of questions. Do I need a DCDC charger to charger Lifepo4 batteries? I believe my model of Patrol doesn't have smart alternator. Or can i simple use my current Smart battery isolator (Redarc SBI12) and just add...

    I have a 1991 TD42 GQ Patrol (Naturally aspirated) And I'm having issues with getting it running, At first I thought it was the battery but I've swapped the primary battery out for another on and I charged the new one up on a DC 12V charger and chucked it in to try starting it, when I did that...
  9. Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    Thought I'd just share this as I also posted this in another forum .... The battery in my spare Nissan Y62 Smartkey died a few weeks ago (which is the key my wife uses when she steals the car) and I thought I'm not even going to ask Nissan for a price to replace it as I had a tray of button...

    Hello, Thinking about putting in a third battery in the back somewhere. Currently have a AGM 33ah under the hood which I could upgrade to a 50ah that's the same size. Space is a bit tight around a 4.8 on gas, abs and a few other bits.. The question is does it matter what sort/size the third...

    It's my first time on here but I am desperate for help. I am a single lady and don't know too much about mechanics but I take good care of my truck. I have been away for 2 months and hadn't started my truck for 2 months. When I tried to start it, the glow light didn't go on, I had no power. At...

    Just thought I'd put this up as a separate thread (cut & pasted it from my build). cost = about $15 Thought I'd do some P.M's at the weekend, especially after all the talk about 2nd batteries dying & the onset of summer coming on! A while back I'd bought a battery cover from another patrol...
  13. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hey guys, I pulled my Bullbar off to put in a winch and plate. As I can't fit the Bullbar back on until I get the fair lead bracket grinder off it still remains on the floor of the garage. Anyway: the reason I'm posting this thread is there is no power from the battery to start the car as I...

    Hi Guys, The problem is probably simple, and I'm not looking for the whole "replace this, replace that" solution, I just want a quick fix to be able to drive the car down the road. It's a TDI 2.8 Litre. Was working fine but has been parked in the street for 9 months now, and I just tried to...
