Question
my nissan v6 vg30 4x4 91 model have a problem on starting and when it start and when iput on the lights it cuts off even to put on harzets lights it have a funny noise what can be the problem

Answer
Hi -

First thing I would check is your alternator. If it is not recharging the battery then this will happen. It should be charging the battery at 14V at idle.

Could also be a bad battery. With the lights on, try starting the car. If the lights go dim or turn off and the car does not start, it is the battery.

Hope this helps -
