    DIY - Do It Yourself / Tech Tips
    Went to leave work on July 3rd and started car. Had most, if not all lights on dash come on and it idled weird and cut off. Jumped several times and it wouldn’t stay on after I removed cables. Everything was closed on the 4th so I left it there and went back on the 5th. Got battery and...

    General Discussion
    Hey guys, Ive been searching all over for a fix to my problem on my 05 automatic nismo frontier. I've taken the truck in for repairs and 2k later the issue still persists.
