Daddio Posted January 2, 2020 Report Share Posted January 2, 2020 Hello Datsun fans. I have a total mystery on my hands. My '78 620 King Cab has an electrical glitch that causes it to instantly quit when sitting at idle or in park. Ongoing problem. Worked on it for two weeks the first time and a month the second time without coming to a solution. Had it towed to the shop both times. Last time it was $800 with a fist full of new parts. Two months later, it's doing it again. Only this time, I'm able to restart it after 15 minutes. Runs perfectly, maybe for 10 minutes or maybe for several hours, then does it again. Very frustrating. Every component of the electrical system has been either traced, checked multiple times or the parts replaced. If it were a component, it would have showed up and been replaced by now. I honestly don't think the shop figured it out, they may have just gotten lucky. This particular issue has accumulated almost $1500 in parts and labor over the last year. All the obvious things have been done. Looking for something that isn't obvious. Perhaps you have had a similar problem. I'd love to hear about how you solved the mystery. Quote Link to comment
