If the light is flickering and not just becoming brighter or dimmer with engine rpm, I'd suspect an electrical short, possibly between the battery and alternator or inside the alternator itself. have the alternator output checked before going further with diagnosis and before it fails completely and becomes more difficult to diagnose.

Car problem troubleshoot


i had this with my 2.0 IDE laguna. it was due to a low voltage level on battery enough power to fire the relays, but not enough to turn the starter. check that your battery voltage is high . i ended up getting anew battery and a battery conditioner from ebay to just keep the voltage topped up when not using the car, i never found what was causing the drain on battery though

Battery wont charge, battery/ABS/SRS/BRAKE lights come on while driving and flicker. voltage increases to dash lights/fan speed/headlights periodically.


Get a volt meter, start your car and see how many volts your car is producing while running. Should be around 14 volts. May want to watch the meter for a while since your electric seems to fluctuate. Most voltage regulators are internal of your alternator. If you are getting a lot more or less than 14 volts while running, replace the alternator. If it is not charging, voltage will drop as vehicle runs, until battery is dead.

New battery keeps going dead no low voltage light


Have the vehicle taken to one of many places that will test the Alternator output etc--narrow it down first without replacing that.

Voltage may drop enough to prevent starting without triggering the low voltage issue.

check the battery voltage with a digital meter, clean the cables and terminals replace any loose ones. check grounds

car off should be minimum or 12.5 anything less its probably a bad or low charged battery, with the car running with ac on and lights on high beams
should be 13.5-15v
anything less the alternator should be checked and or replaced. 13.5 is on the low side of the scale keep that in mind.

as far as the accessories acting up, a low battery or bad alternator will cause all sorts of things to flicker and act up so start with the above first
and good luck
if after all thats completed and your still over time having a dead battery you have a parasitic drain, every car has a small one normally but a big one can be big trouble,
disconnect the battery get yourself a test light. clamp one end of the test light to the positve cable (unhooked from battery) and touch the end of the test light to the + on the battery. if it lights up bright you have a parasitic drain. (something staying on,) unplug fueses until the light turns off and that fuse that was pulled right before the light went off is the circuit that's bad and needs to be checked. could be as simple as a light staying on or a aftermarket radio, but it can get as indepth as full electrical diagnostics

You need to check the plug that goes into the alternator to see if it's tight fitting next the brushes inside the alternator have a wear indicator that is a hole in the center it is also used to set them in place with a pin that could be the flickering cause the brushes are solid till they get to the opening so when the alternator is running there's always a break in contact because of the hole so it makes and breaks contact causing the flickering and the charging level is ok but when a lot of accessories are on it can't keep up the charging voltages so the battery gradually goes dead losing power also another spot to look is the power distribution box cable it co u ld be loose and dirty and corroded

Your alternator is dead/dying. Nissan puts both of those lights on to tell you that the alternator isn't charging your battery.

Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start


Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.
