1996 nissan sentra gear selector sticks


IT COULD BE A FUSE ,IT COULD BE A RELAY TOO, BECAUSE IF IT IS NOT GETTING POWER TO THE SWITCH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL OR FROM THE COLUMN TO THE SWITCH, IT WILL NOT LET IT RELEASE, ITS ALSO POSSIBLE THE SWITCH IS BAD ON THE BRK PEDAL.

Brake and Battery dashboard lights coming on at same time


Check looseness or corrosion on the leads and wiring at the battery terminals. Check for looseness or corrosion on the alternator connectors. With vehicle started and reved to 2000RPM, use a voltmeter to measure voltage and that measurement should be between 13.5-14.8. If you're unable to achieve this voltage have your alternator checked at autozone or advance auto, its free. Hopefully this helps

You could have faulty altenator or short causing the battery to drain. The engine light usually comes on when anything electrical or sensor wise is faulty. Brake light will come on if, low brake fluid, e-brake handle is up.

No it's not you are having a massive failure or a bad battery or a broken alternator belt look to see if you have any belts missing then pull the battery out have it charred and tested at shucks AutoZone or first interstate or sear and see if the battery is ok, if it is then drive it into the same places and have them do a charging system check, it's free except at sears.

Engine turned off while car was stopped


Take it back the mechanic and tell him what you indicated here. He will have a problem determining the problem if he can not duplicate it, but it will put him on notice that something is not right. Done properly, he will take a greater interest in helping to find the problem, which may have nothing to do with the work performed so far.

Just hit 180,00mi and battery and brake light diming


Have the battery tested and the alternator tested, the other issue may have a code stored to help point in the right direction, at that many miles things are bound to wear out.
