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. It just started with Brake and Charging lights on the dash brd of my Nissan X-trail. i continued wit a ride of about 15Km when the accelerator stopped to work but engine running. later on the engine stopped and could not start anymore. I changed the alternator as it was recommended by three technicians. And the battery was charged. From then, i could sometimes start the engine twice before it runs and after two weeks same alerts appeared on the dash board. Now i have parked the car waiting to dream about the solution.

    as u said u tried replacing the alternator and still no difference.then ----------check out for this as the most common cause

    Are the brake lights operational? Are you having any battery recharging issues? If not, I'd be looking at circuit issues such as an open/loose ground or relay malfunction.--------

    ---------also check out if alternator is replaced then this could be another problem

    Your alternator is defective. Could be the internal voltage regulator or one or more bad diodes.-----------

    also check out for the broken alternator belt or may be worn out.

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.
