1. Make sure you have good grounds.
2. Go to the EE section and test your charging system. http://xenons30.com/files/FSM/1974%20260z%20FSM.zip
3. Get your battery load tested. It's probably bad.

On top of getting your battery checked get your alternator checked as well.
Good luck electrical issues get on my nerves!
