problem...thinking it might be electrical.

one of my friends has a 91 nissan d21 pickup, 2.4L 4 cylinder, to be honest im not sure whats wrong with it, if the battery is fully charged it runs fine but none of the gauges work, and if u run it hard every now and then it starts to sputter, like it's starving for gas, i was thinking the alternator was bad, not charging the battery and when the battery dies, the fuel pump wont work. well someone else told me that it might be the computer,(they used to have the same problem with the same vehicle). anyone that could help with this there advice would be much appreciated. thanks for your time.

Just the facts

There's no doubt in my mind it's electrical.

Have him charge the battery, and drive it to a local AutoZone. Have them test the alternator, and plug in to the diagnostic port to see the codes.

This will either find the problem or eliminate the most likely causes and easiest (although not the cheapest) fixes.

If that don't do it, clean battery connections, double check/clean ground wires. Verify all fuses are good. Finally check for damage to wires.
