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

The car will rev up in N or P but will not in Drive. The battery keeps going dead and the car will act right for a little while if your hook up cables and charge the battery. But also the brake, airbag dash lights are on

Have you had the battery and alternator checked yet? If not, you should. It may be that the control units connected to the CAN aren't being supplied the correct voltage(too low) to operate properly.

System Description
CAN (Controller Area Network) is a serial communication line for real time application. It is an on-vehicle multiplex communication line with high data communication speed and excellent error detection ability. Many electronic control units are equipped onto a vehicle, and each control unit shares information and links with other control units during operation (not independent). In CAN communication, control units are connected with 2 communication lines (CAN H line, CAN L line) allowing a high rate of information transmission with less wiring.
Each control unit transmits/receives data but selectively reads required data only.

05 durango flow sensor

I have noticed that if you keep the 'A' pedal down it simply revs beyond 3K and doesn't actually accelerate. The trick is to ease off the 'A' pedal, see the rev coming down and then accelerate again. This will save fuel also. You will see it cruising at around 45 miles just above .5K rev when you do this.

1995 Nissan Altima Stuck in First Gear

1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).

I had the car in storage for 35 days. Upon startup, battery was dead. I took the dead battery out(only 1 year old) and put in a good battery which started the car, while the car was running good I took out...

You recycle the old dead battery

Have no idea why you even put that back in

Common sense & your friend is correct

You don't disconnect anything on today's
vehicles, even with the key on

Put in a new battery,start the car, warm it up
& drive it for awhile & maybe you will get lucky
& it will complete some of the drive cycles & run some
monitors ,you know nothing about & it will be fine

If not, your mechanic friend should be about to stop
by with the bosses scan tool & help you out

05 Altima, brake light and battery light on

You may need an alternator.Once battery voltage goes low enough the brake warning light can come on warning you the battery voltage is too low for the brake system to work properly. The bat light is warning you there is a problem with the charging circuit,most likely the alternator.

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

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.
