Brake light and battery light stay on Nissan Sentra 2000

My Nissan Sentra 2000 Car 1.8L Engine is showing up the the Brake and Battery Light on the Dash Board. I went to Autozone and they told its Alternator problem and i changed it. Even after changing it still showing up on the Dashboard. Changed Alternator twice thinking that the first bought one was bad. That's not the case. I have already spent lot of $ for this and still today it's not fixed. Any Solution for this problem will be greatly helpful.

Thank you.

    Hi,



    Thanks for your solution.



    We have changed the Front Brake Pads recently because it is making noise while running the car and also when i apply the brakes. Do you think it might be because of inproper fixing of the brakes?



    Thanks for you help.

    Hi,

    After replacing the Old Alternator with the new one. I drove the car for 2 days and i have used the lights and AC at that time. Again the Brake and Battery Symbol after 2 days running with the new Alternator in the car. The head lights worked properly for 2 days. Initially the Garage Technicians thought the problem is with the Alternator and replaced it. Still the problem exists and again as the Symbols still showing up.....they thought the Alternator from Auto Zone is not good one and again Replaced it. But its still showing up.

    Thanks for your help.

    Do you mean that something went wrong. In that case we have to hear sound right. Then why the Battery Symbol will show up on the Dashboard.



    Thank you.

Have you checked to see if the system is charging, just because you replaced the alt. it does not mean the system is charging the battery, test it, turn on the lights heater blower motor (to load the system) and put a volt meter on the battery at idle it should read at least 13.0 volts, if not check the connector to the alternator for heat damage, verify the terminals are clean and tight not discolored, also clean the battery cables, if there is a charging system fuse verify it is ok and not blown.

    You may have not installed the brake wear sensor back on correctly.

    Look I know you haven't checked the items I outlined, until you do these checks of the alternator wiring you will not be able to move on with the repair, I did auto electric work for 20 years at a new car dealer, saw it all, these are the same things I would check if you brought your car to my shop, verify the system is charging and you have at least 13.0 volts at the battery, if not pull the alternator connector and check it closely, try this before you flat say no to the solution, if you need additional assistance do a live chat session, then we can lead you through he repair step by step, OK?

97 nissan sentra with brake and battery light staying lit after changing battery. when it goes into passing gear light goes off then comes back on


These lights will come on if your alternator isn't charging fully. With a multi meter test your voltage at the battery with the engine running. The voltage should be above 14 volts. If it is below 14 you will need to replace the alternator.

You could have faulty altenator or short causing the battery to drain. The engine light usually comes on when anything electrical or sensor wise is faulty. Brake light will come on if, low brake fluid, e-brake handle is up.

No it's not you are having a massive failure or a bad battery or a broken alternator belt look to see if you have any belts missing then pull the battery out have it charred and tested at shucks AutoZone or first interstate or sear and see if the battery is ok, if it is then drive it into the same places and have them do a charging system check, it's free except at sears.

1998 Nissa Sentra brake light & battery light come on


I had the same problem with my 96 Nissan/ infinity g20.
If I turned on the ac the brake & battery lights came on, the AC fan would work but the air did not blow cold. Disconnected the battery for a few hours to reset the computer. That solved the problem.
Now, no lights, and the AC blows cold.
