Question about 2002 Nissan Altima

3 Answers

Car is completely dead, like somebody shot it dead! No sounds, no light, can't shift out of park into neutral or anything....everything completely dead...no warning whatsoever!

Went to the library, came out 1 1/2 hrs. later, 2005 Nissan Altima was completely dead for no reason. No warning or anything. Tried jumping the battery, nothing! Key stuck in the ignition and will not come out. HELP!

Always clean the battery terminals before jumping. An extremely dead battery may not accept a jump as it serves as a 'buffer" instead of helping. If you do get it started, charge battery with a battery charger then have alternator and battery tested for proper operation and check belt condition and tension as well.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

What would prevent a 2005 jeep liberty from shifting out of park


this is a feature, on A/T cars. for vast years, !!!
my jeep is M/T and has no such thing, but A/T has this.
This feature, prevents starting in GEAR.
called park lock out, so the Audi lady can't drive over her kids, ( really sad huh?)

Called BTSI: by jeep.
this feature does, not stop starts/crankikng. unless, the shifter is not placed
in park or neutral. (this feature blocks cranking in any gear)

so i must guess, its in park, engine is running, right?
and your foot, is on the brake, and the brake lights do glow behind car, if not the park lock will stay locked.

if you need a schematic, i can send it.
some cars there is a park lock out bypass so you can drive
with no brake lights. (LOL)

the BTSI bypass is missing this feature, in 2006, unlike older cars.
a federal mandate that bypass removal.

check the brake light fuses first of brake lights are dead.
the post back for schematic.
the FSM covers how to fix this on all cars made, (usa car, and forum)
The OEM "factory service manual" buy one and end guessing.
or login to alldata.com


http://www.scantool.net/software/alldata-diy-1-month-subscription.html

so does the starter work or not in park or neutral.
this i can not guess from your post. at all.

no starts
no cranks
fails to stay running, engine.
what?
if the key will not crank the engine in park , then try cranking
in Neutral,(this trick uses fresh PRNDL contacts)
if the engine will not crank use jumper cable ump starts from a running donor car, (read paper sheet in cable box, it tells how )

if the car now cranks and starts jumped,that means the battery
was (is) discharged, that can be caused by phantom drains.
all tests are easy, and all take only a 10$ walfart DMM meter.
to find true cause , ask.

try posting what step fails in the operator guide , how to start your engine.
shift to park.
foot on brake,
turn key to crank, does this fail?

I have a 2000 Nissan Altima GXE, have changed altenator and left battery unhooked for 24 hrs. Now I can not keep car running, donot have inside working lights or anything to do with the power system...


the battery should be dead by the way you describe it...so just jump start the car from another car...if that doesn't work then you might need a new battery if the battery is too old...like 4-5 years old...
Good Luck!
