Electrical problem
1990 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 25000+ miles

I think the voltage regulator is draining the battery because the battery is too weak to turn over the battery after we go into the store for awhile (1hr - 2hr) but my husband tells me it couldnt be the voltage regulator. What is your opinion on this?

HI there,

first thing to do is get the battery load tested this is the only way to test a battery condition, then have the alternator checked for charge rate, this will also check the regulator and ensure that the battery terminals are all clean and tight, start here.
