Question about 2000 Nissan Altima
I thought that I had a dead battery because the car wouldn't start and so I replaced the battery. Car started once and then never again. Had towed to a shop and they replaced the battery terminals. Car worked fine for about a week and then one night went to crank and all the power went off. Messed with the cables and the accessories came on and went to start and it all turned off. Once again and the car started and got home. Now it is dead in the garage and no matter how much I mess with anything it won't start and it kills all electricity. I traced a clicking that happened before the electricity cuts out to the inhibit relay. Battery is still charged and now I am not able to get any accessories to turn on.
There are 2 wires going into the relay box, right by the battery. They are white and pretty beefy. Those wies are held in / attached by 2 screws. you will have to somewhat open up the relay box to see those 2 white wires and 2 bolts. Those bolts hold the 100amp fusable link (main fusable link) . check those bolts and make sure they are tight. 8mm bolt heads.

This sounds like a loose or bad ground cable. This can be checked by attaching negative side of jumper cable to engine and negative terminal of battery. If this solves problem, replace cable.
