Yes, that is classic Nissan alt. failure indicator. Get a quality replacement unit. NO KRAGEN/O'REILLY/PEP BOYS/AUTO ZONE!!
find an electric shop that rebuilds them in your area. In Campbell, CA, I like to use Autolectrics. Make sure you check and clean battery terminals and posts and spray on anti-corrosive after cleaning.

Good luck and have a great weekend.

Brake and battery light came on while driving.


The battery may not be charging, alternator, cable, or fuse problem.
The brake system may be low on brake fluid. The parking brake switch may be telling the light the parking brake is on.

2000 pathfinder battery draining


Sounds like your alternator is doing nothing-the car is running only off the battery. Have your charging system checked-does your battery light stay lit? If that bulb is burnt out, that may be why the charging system is not working. On some charging systems, that bulb is crucial for the alternator to work.
Engine off, a fully charged battery should measure 12.5 volts with a voltmeter. Engine idling, and the voltmeter at the same battery should be showing about 13.5 volts. This tells you the charging system is working.

Battery light still on after changing alternater and battery


The battery light goes 2 ways, one is showing the battery taking a charge because the battery was drained, and 2, the battery is not taking a charge and will be dead in 20 mins. I should say the charge light. So, now that you have replaced the battery and the alternator, I would assume there is something else wrong. Your battery might be charging up. Your new battery might be dead.
Check out all the fuses, you will probably find one blown that has nothing to do with it but it causes the light to come on. I went nuts once(?) when my brake light on the dash came on, I had brakes, but couldn't find anything wrong, I checked everything, went as far as making an app with a mechanic to check out my brakes, on my way to the shop, a guy pulls up along side of me and says my brake lights are out. Duh, popped in the fuse and went back home. So, check it out. Hope this helps.

My parking light and dash panel light do not work. I can't not find the fuse causing this. Can you help telling which one? Thank you


On the 1998 Pathfinder, the fuse that powers the park lights and dash lights is located under the hood on the passenger side in the fuse/relay box. It is a 10 amp fuse #61. Test ALL fuses in the fuse box and make sure there are no missing fuses.
