Question about 2001 Nissan Maxima
I have a 2001 Maxima. I recently replaced the battery, because I noticed that the break light and the battery light indicators were both coming on. The battery that my mechanic put in the car was probably big enough for a Vespa scooter. I tried turning on the car and disconnecting the plugs from the battery, but the indicators come on and off at will. Anything else wrong with the car??
First, let me caution you to not disconnect the battery while the engine is running. This can lead to Electronic Control Unit damage (that's the engine computer, etc etc etc.)
Secondly, it sounds like you have an alternator issue. You will need to have the alternator LOAD tested to make sure that it is charging properly at all times.
You may want to have the battery checked for the correct application also if you think it may be too small (although physical size is not always indicative of the amperage output capacity of a battery).
Hope this is helpful.
