Perhaps since alot of us know the issue is the regulator, this should be stickied?
I will go ahead and add a bit more information on it right now too. 1988 model Sentra's use a different regulator then pre-88 and post-88 models. From what I have seen at the JY, the post-88 regulators are found up through at least. Maybe further. It is possible to adapt a post-88 to an 88, but it doesn't work for very long. The ones pre-88 are not going to be able to be adapted, I'm not sure how far back these go, but they do go at least as far back as 85. I've not been able to check anything older. In addition, if I remember correctly from the JY the older Stanza's have the same regulators as pre-88 Sentra's. The big thing here is 88 has it's own(which sucks for me as that is what I have, but I finally found an 88 Sentra at the JY, just had to drive to hell and back to get it), but my gauges are working fine now.
I propose with this thread being straight and to the point, and with this added info and hopefully some confirmations and corrections as needed, that this topic now be stickied. How about it mods?
