Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
A couple of months ago, while pulling into my drive way my 2005 Nissan Altima died on me. The engine completely shut off (no sputter) and my steering column locked up. My check engine and battery light came on. I called the local Nissan dealership and they told me it could possibly be the crankshaft sensor and considering the distance to the dealership I probably should have the car towed in to avoid an accident. I had the car towed in. They hooked it up to the computer and told me that it was not the crankshaft sensor that my car was simply out of gas. While I will concede, the car was low on fuel, it was not out of gas. The fuel light was not on. I left the dealership upset that they that they tried to make me look stupid and I took the car home.
A couple of weeks ago, the car sputtered while driving at a low speed, but never died. It has never done that, and I just chalked it up to an air bubble or trash in the fuel.
Tonight, the car sputtered again while pulling into a parking space and died on me. The check engine and battery light came on again. The car was still in drive when it died. The car has 3/4 tank of gas.
Forget about the Nissan dealer and take your vehicle to one of the auto parts suppliers to have a diagnosis made, then find a competent mechanic to confirm the diagnosis and make necessary repairs.

Sounds like the fuel pump is bad.... I would have the codes read and start there... but my imediate suspicions are the fuel pump.
