Battery, alternator??? please help!

I have an xg300 and two months ago it just stopped - dash lights, radio, air conditioning started flickering on and off and then the car stopped. I replaced battery and drove for a day - stopped again. Then was told it was the alternator - replaced it. Have driven for 6 weeks w/out problems then yesterday i turned on the a/c for the first time and the same thing has happend all over again. It won't start, can't even boost it but i've replaced the battery and alternator. Anyone else ever had this... what is it? please help!

Check the wires to the battery and make sure they're not corroded and in good shape. Take them off the post and clean the inside so that they make good contact with the battery post. If they're not making a good connection and you start using a lot more power like when using AC they will get really hot and may burn up.

Sometimes the car won't start and the dash lights and the radio lights flicker


Best place to start is the positive lead on the battery . Remove the lead and clean battery pole and terminal using sand paper until you have shiny syrfaces. Replace the lead and tighten the terminal . Check the battery for charge condition as what you describe indicates a flat battery

My ford dealer replaced the alternator 18 months ago. I put on 60,000 miles. I see the red light flicker on the dash board. Is it time to replace the alternator?


since the alternator was just replaced 1 1/2 years ago I would say that it might not be the alternator but it could be your battery. I would take your car down to a battery shop and have them do a load test on the battery to see if the battery is starting to go bad and not holding the charge from the alternator.
if the battery test shows that the battery is good then the alternator is bad,, check your paper work from the dealer to see if it is under warranty.

98 Maxima - Battery and Brake Lights flickering


First off - 125K mi is nothing on that car (as long as you maintain it). The alternator is actually also the voltage regulator and this aspect of the alternator frequently fails before the actual alternator itself does and causes irregular voltage - so it makes sense you drove without the battery connected but you probably were having irregular power instead of a nice steady 14V (the other thing to know is that even if they do show 14V all the time the amperage may differ, both problems = change the alternator).

The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.


I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps
