Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

Thank you for the clarification Vstar. I should show a more accurate diagram of my current setup. https://i.imgur.com/0oAz8XQh.jpg On my current alternator, there is not a yellow wire coming from the units pig tail harness. DC Power Engineering does not utilize the signal to the IPDM rather its regu...

Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

Your alternator has 5 main points on the system. Earth - AKA Ground. These are the BLK wires found on the wiring harness....

Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

So I may have found my problem tonight. While peeking under the vehicle again, It appears that the factory alternator cable was not reinstalled on my new 270 AMP Alternator when the shop I brought it to was working on it. This needs to be reinstalled even with a high output alternator installed. To ...

Re: Yet Another Armada Swap study... no dice.

Good Stuff GED. I can confirm that the Armada swap in the rear is possible. I'm running a Hybrid Armada swap by using Armada Bilstein shocks and Armada Coil Springs. I am also running a custom 4-inch drop bracket lift kit like you pictured above. I do not have the shocks mounted to the coil bucket, ...

Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

Troubleshooting update #1 Since my Optima Yellow Top Battery was covered under warranty, I went ahead and replaced it with a normal Ever start Battery from O Reilly's to see if there would be any improvement to my situation. There was no Improvement. My Troubleshooting list so far to go off of: 1. B...

Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

With the new 270 Amp Alternator, I am running 1/0 Cable from the Battery + to the Alternator, along with the Engine to chassis ground and Battery to Chassis Ground. I do not have an upgraded ground cable running from the alternator to the frame so maybe that could possibly help as well. I did a para...

Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

OK plan of attack/fixing the problem is becoming more clear now possibly. After digging around the factory charging system wiring last night I found a Corroded set of ground wires underneath the small fuse box panel right next to the battery. I didn't see this set of grounds during my initial invest...

Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

Also told me that my Aftermarket alternator is outputting too much voltage at 15V or Higher. The voltage set point on my 270 Amp alternator is 14.8 but it increases as I drive down the road. That's pretty much a regulation failure even at 14.8V. There's no good reason to pump more than about 14.2V ...

Re: ELECTRICAL Troubles

Ended up going to the dealer on this one. ABS Module has failed internally which is throwing all of the CAN-related codes and sensor codes. They tried clearing all of the codes but they immediately came back after driving a short distance. Also told me that my Aftermarket alternator is outputting to...

IPDM Upgrade

Upgraded my IPDM to the latest version from Nissan. https://i.imgur.com/gSqSydjl.jpg This IPDM has better internal components along with a better layout design for fuses and relays. Some relays are internal to this IPDM which can be a drawback for some. To me, this didn't matter. The original IPDM h...

270 Amp High Output Alternator

My stock alternator crapped the bed finally after working hard for 12 years and 210,000 miles. With all of the electrical upgrades I have on my Nissan, I decided to put a high output alternator on. I went with Steven at Rugged Rocks to help me order a 270 Amp High Output Alternator from DC Engineeri...

I have a lot of catching up to do for the group but I would like to start with the custom headlights that I installed. The headlights are from DT moto on eBay and the Led projector kit is from HIDProjectors.com (Thank you Tom for this kit!) Here are some photos of them. https://i.imgur.com/UqictXXl....
