Question about 1997 Nissan.5 Altima
I replaced my battery, then i thought it was the alternator. diving home from school my battery light and brake light would come on when i was under 2000 rpm. air bag light flashing. a mile away from home the speedometer stopped working. 700 feet from my house when my car stared to sputter, as if the engine was on then off over and over. power steering failed and i barely made it to my house when the car died.
Is the serpentine belt still on the engine, and is it tight ?
Does the alternator pulley turn when the engine is cranked or running ?

It is a short in one of the ignition wire, car start, and while drive wire get hot and in
short circuit, drain the battery and posible burn the diodes in the alternator.
Identify wire and replace
