2000 Nissan Xterra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 149000 miles
One month ago, battery going dead. It was five years old so we went to Advance and got a new one. When it was installed, the alarm system wouldn't quit going off so the guy unhooked it, maybe broke the wire. Got a tune up and had the belts replaced and brake pads changed for maintenance. The belt that deals with the alternator and battery (?) Was loose so again the battery went dead. Mechanic came and tightened belt, charged battery, good for about two days. Then battery died AGAIN. Went to Advance to get a replacement bettery based on mechanics opinion. Checked the alternator by jumping the car and unhooking battery while running, seemed good. A week later and the second new battery is dead. Can't figure out what is draining the battery if its not the alternator.
have the same problem?
