Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

05 Altima dies while at low speed

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.

You should stop by your local Auto Parts store and see if they can check your service engine light with a code scanner. Some places do it for free. This could point you to a better direction.

2005 Nissan Altima cuts off while driving.


Dear Tajack73: Nissan had a voluntary recall campaign on the 2002,2005,2006 Altima's with the 2.5 litre engines It envolves reprogramming the ECM.
The campaign ID # RD0712 NHTSA #: 07V-527
2005 Altima Vin's 1N4AL11**5C 100003-957025
1N4AL11**5N 400000-934180

The symptom you have described fits the one they have describe in the bulletin. Check with Nissan and see if your car falls within the campaign. Let men know how you do.
