2002 Nissan Pathfinder _ Electrical Problems


Unusual the dealer can't or won't find the problem.
A mechanic would check everything in that circuit for shorts to ground.
Was the fuse blowing before the alternator and battery were replaced ?
Based on the wiring diagrams I would vote for a defective alternator.
The 10 amp fuse number 8 powers the cluster which also goes to the alternator. If the alternator shorts out internally it would blow that number 8 fuse and take the cluster with it.
The other circuits you mentioned are controlled by the key switch but are fused after the switch. So if the switch was causing the problem it should be blowing a 40amp fuse.
I would probably take the alternator off and have someone else test it.

Oldsmobile alternator doesn't work after starting car.. Replaced both alternator and battery atleast 2 times already.. Don't know what the problem is. Checked all fuses, wires, stereo, grounds, etc. Read...


THE RED SMALL POSITIVE BATTERY FEED WIRE COULD BE BROKEN THAT GOES TO BACK OF ALTERNATOR.CHECK TO SEE IF POWER GOING TO THE WIRE.IT NOT POSITIVE BATTERY SMALL FEED CABLE BROKEN.OR YOU HAVE BLOWN FUSE LINK.IF ALL IS GOOD YOU COULD HAVE PCM PROBLEMS YOUR FIELD CONTROL CIRCUIT PART OF THE PCM CIRCUIT.HAVE VECHICLE SCANNED TO LOOK FOR ALTERNATOR PCM FAULT. AFTER YOU INSTALL NEW ALTERNATOR DONT CRANK THE CAR UNTIL YOU GET A SCANNER AND ERASE TROUBLE CODE FIRST BECAUSE THE PCM THINK OLD ALTERNATOR STILL IN VECHICLE AND WILL CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS.

After replacing alternator, battery, headlights still do not work


if the battery was leaking acid from the filler caps on the battery it may have been caused by the alternator over charging (faulty voltage regulator) hence blow your light bulbs or blown the fuse check for blown fuses first,if they are OK you may have to replace the bulbs .....hope this helps....cheers

Your alternator bearing can make that noise when it is going bad. Open the hood and find the alternator. Search on the internet to see what it looks like. That is easier than trying to explain it. Take a metal rod or a 3/8" drive 12" to 18" extension and with the engine running, carefully place one end of the rod on the alternator case and the other to your ear. BE VERY CAREFUL TO NOT TOUCH ANY ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS OR MOVING PARTS. IF YOU DO'T FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING THIS, TAKE THE CAR TO A CERTIFIED MECHANIC. You can check the water pump with this same technic which could be making the sound but I would bet it's the alternator. Replacement is how to fix it.

Battery overcharges and light is on


Never saw a charging system problem cause anyone to fail inspection. But, overcharging will cook the water out of your battery and can damage the computer system if not taken care of. Overcharge can be caused by either a grounded alternator field wire or a bad regulator. Since the condition appeared after replacing the alternator it too is suspect as an internal grounding can also cause that.
