Question about 2002 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Re: Completely Dead 2005 Altima - battery tested and proved to be fine (my son-in-law put the jumping cables on the battery and touched the two other ends of jumping cable together and got "great sparks" according to him0. Even the red blinking security/alarm light is off... Wouldn't the alternator have given me warning if that was the case? Nissan Dealer states it may have gone into a fail-safe mode, but why? What would make it do that? Of course, they want me to bring it in and I simply can't afford it...they charge enormous fees for what my "mobile" mechanic can do very cheaply. Again, Help! I'm 55 yrs old and on a fixed income...Please Help!

They are right it goes into fail safe mode so that nothing else gets ruined and nothing get fryed that will cost you lots of money. I would contact your mobile mechanic and have them fix the issue for you. It is basically resetting codes

What Systems draw power when the car is off?


Have to do a Parasitic Current Drain Test, to find
the circuit with the fault,then component test items
in that circuit

You have a module,relay or other item, not timing out
or going to sleep

You can have failed switches in the doors,failed alternator
diodes,many things that can cause that

Even the Evap System, which on some cars, run tests while
your sleeping, can be at fault

Check for OBD Codes in all Modules, with professional scan tool,
then do the drain test, leaving the doors closed

The car was running fine one day then the next day it would not start. We tried jumping it thinking the battery might be dead and it still would niot start. The car has power until we take the jumper...


Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

2005 altima Tried to replace dome light blub and fuse blew cannot find fuse also shifter will not go into gear after car is started.


Most often the battery cables as they connect to the battery get dirty and they can look clean and not make it so clean them anyway. If the car was jumped started wrong the main fuse can be blown and no power gets to the dash. Test light at the big power wire on the back of the altenator if its dead it's not going to start or light any of the dash lights either.

Please I will advice you take this vehicle for a scan and not to do a guess work on it.

Cheers.

Make sure the battery and alternator is working. Get battery and alternator checked. It did not jump timing. Autozone will do it free and Walmart will check your battery. Lets try this and get back with me

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!


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.

Starts, but put it in gear, it goes dead. will idle.


1. Had mechanic check timing again. Belt off a couple degrees. Should fix problem.
2. Don't know. this is my son-in-laws car.
3. No.
4. I think valves were bent due to timing belt breaking and son-in-law trying to start car when it went dead.
5. Will do this if timing belt reset don't work.
Thanks for your reply.
