Hello! If you have a multimeter and a little experience using it, here is a simple test...It sounds like there is a resistive connection to the starter motor...Set your meter to its lowest ohm scale (X1) as an example...touch both meter probes together and zero the meter...Place one probe on the Center of the - battery post and the other directly on bare metal of the starter motor...You must read zero ohms...If you do not read zero the negative battery lead is not making a clean and solid connection...Set the meter to read +12 volts DC...Take a reading across the battery terminals with key off...Then angle the meter so you can see it and turn the key to start...Record the reading...Send a comment with results.....Guru.....Saailer

1st...never, ever disconnect the battery terminals when the vehicle is running.If you want to test the alternator's output, use a volt meter to measure the voltage at the battery when the engine is running. Your condition could be related to the battery itself, it may have cells inside that are shorting out, it could also be a bad terminal connection at the battery. What needs to be done is a voltage test to verify the battery condition and alternator output. I hope more problems were not caused by disconnecting the battery while the engine was running.

Check the crankshaft sensor or read codes off of the OBD-II system to see if that describes a problem that would cause the car to crank but not start and run on its own.

Nissan Sentra random stalls and wont start hot

Check out the catalytic converter, might be plugged up. I have seen some cars that will run fine, and like someone threw a switch the car acted like yours, no power, would not rev and died. Later when cold they would be OK for a while then just get worse and worse.
