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

Changed temp sensor engine check light still on. Over heat gauge erratic and moves to the right.

Get an oven thermometer, run the car untill the check light goes on, using a multilayer rag slowly open the radiator cap one notch.If if the cap wiggles loose & no steam comes out , you can fully remove it. Put the thermometer into the liquid coolant , if temp is 180 F (+- 20), the problem is electrical. If steam comes out its a cooling system problem. Use commonsense in doing this. Probably the gague is faulty.

We have over 20 inches of snow, i drove in it, while diving i saw my bat hand go to 0, now today its 3 degrees outside and its will not start, when i jump it it starts after about 10 clicks, what could be...

If your battery gauge went to zero whilst driving it sounds like your alternator stopped charging. Either the alternator itself failed or you chewed a fan belt. If you jump started it, and the battery light stays on or the gauge still reads zero then that would confirm the above.
Driving or running the car without alternator charge will simply run the battery to zero. it will be quite hard to even jump start after that.
Check for broken,lost belt and get it running again and watch the gauge/batt light. If its on, its not charging, if its off then you most likely have a battery going bad.

Voltage gauge periodically drops from 14 volts to 9 volts every couple of minutes and then it will go back up after you turn the heat off, with no other changes to lights or the engine. Also the tempature...

I would say the alternator. The fluctuations when it is running indicate that the regulator inside the alternator is worn out. The overheating is probably because the cooling fan is not running fast enough or at all.

I have 2003 6 cylinder grand cherokee ran up to the store about 15 minutes away and the gauges started to jump abs and other dash lights came on parked turned it off waited a minute tried to turn it on...

Hard to guess, but the best idea I can come up with is that the regulator in the alternator malfunctioned, and you were getting wide variations in voltage throughout the whole system.
Once reset, if it seems to be normal, I would not worry.
If you want to check, get a voltmeter and check alternator output.

Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).
