    I'm having the same issue. I had just replaced the alternator thinking it was the problem, as the battery seemed to be the only thing running the car. But the new alternator didn't fix it and it's been tested and is still good. When I charge the battery up, it runs fine, but when it gets low the engine starts knocking and shaking. Any thoughts?

My brake and battery lights are both on my 2008 nissan maxima will go faster than 40 mph, what is wrong?


Battery light on may mean alternator is not charging, thus engine is running off only battery power = weak spark and bad curent to ECM. Fix battery issues and should run better. Brake light separate issue I think.

When I turn the key in the ignition all I get is a rapid burst of clicks


Your battery is drained, hook up some jumper cables or take it to an auto parts store to be charged (unless you have a battery charger)
Then have them test the alternator.

Car died, starts when jump it and dies again soon as charge drain


Hello dpkommineni: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The problem you described is that of a car not charging the battery. You need to have the charging system tested. The alternator should charge between 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Anything less then 12.5 the battery will go dead. Since the weather is hot any use of the head lamp and A/C the battery would die fairly fast. I would also have the battery tested. Should the battery have a open cell then it would not take a charge from the alternator.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way we can tell you received helpful information. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
