You certainly have short circuit some where. If you have a Multi meter you can check for the short with little patience. See this You Tube link on how to check for short circuit or parasitical drain.

You have a short draining the battery. I would suspect it is on the board for the gauges since that stopped working when the trouble started. If you are not skilled in this area I suggest a repair shop or dealership. Keep close watch on the car for smoke or an odor indicating heated or wires on fire! I would disconnect the battery until you have it repaired. At the least when you are not driving it. FYI If you drain the battery completely too many times it will damage it and will need to be replaced again.

change your battery cables and check all wires on the alternator for loose connections, expecially the grounds.

SOURCE: Battery is not holding a charge on my 2003 Nissan Altima.

You might have a parasitic drain on your battery. Meaning something isn't shutting off like it should be draining your battery. Your positive battery cable might be shorted to ground not allowing power to flow.

SOURCE: my 2000 Mercury Cougar starts ok then after a few

I have the same car. Same problem. We replaced the fuse box and it fixed the problem. But here we are 6 months later and the problem came back. So for a quick fix you can replace the fuse box. I'll let you know what the real problem is when i get it to the dealer.

SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5S starting problem

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

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
