Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

05 Altima, car will not go when the accelerator is pressed

The car will idle and go into gear but when the gas is pressed it will not go or rev. I think it might be the alternator. The battery had came on and if you hook up cables for a little while it will run right for just a little while

Is the engine bogging down? or no responce at all? i would bring the battery to the nearest discount or autozone for a free battery charge and have them test the battery first . if the battery was low or shorted it could cause the problem your having .if it just bogging after that if it runs fine for a little while i would get it to autozone to test the alternator free test aswell. a shorted battery a blown fusable link or a bad alternator could do the same thing which would use all the voltage from the battery

Does you car engine speed up when you hit the accelerator when the car is in park or nuetral? If it does then it may be computer problem. If it does not then it sounds like a accelerator cable is disconnected.

    Sounds like good advise. I am not sure what it would be worth but you may want to try putting the car in another gear besides drive and see what happens. Either way get your electrical stuff checked out. Hope is it simple fix of a battery.

Car wont go when gas is pressed while in gear but in park it revs up just fine ?


Hi Joey, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Joey, either you have a bad battery, OR the alternator is not charging the battery. Here's what you can do, take the battery out of the vehicle and take it to AutoZone and have them charge it and check it. If they say its good, then you'll need to remove the Alternator and have them check it. If its bad replace it. If it's OK then you need to check the system out to see why its not charging. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Battery Light comes on batt and alt test good.


I still think this has to be your alternator on the way out. It is probably engaging when you rev but not holding at an idle.

Engine revs up down while in idle


If its been without the line for over a year, I Highly doubt it. Look into IAC valve. Most are installed with 2 screws, easy to adjust. Idle Air Control Valve. Look that up, for a start.

could be the battery still or it could be your battery head isnt contacting well. wen your rev the battery is good for some time and later thesame problem then i think your alternator isnt charging your battery which kills battery life span. try all this and if no charge get back to me.

Battery light stays on until I press the gas


Known issue to occur occasionally on VW/Audi. What is occurring is that the alternator is not spinning out fast enough to start charging, so the light is on. Once you rev the engine, the alternator starts to charge and remains charging till its shut off and restarted. It can be related to too low of an idle (not adjustable, unless you have a dirty throttle plate or air leak), the alternator itself (aftermarket or a bad rebuild) or an incorrect alternator pulley installed (too large).
