The current leaks on your car, The problem is not on you battery, nor on your alternator.
Please check all electricity system on car for leaks. You may need DC amp meter to find the leaks quickly.

Once you have the engine running, place a volt meter across the battery and measure the voltage while you run the engine at about 2000 rpm. The volt meter should read in the region of 14.5 volts. If it is below 14 volts your alternator is not charging and needs attention. Also, after the battery has been used for a while and you switch the lights on, they should brighten slightly as you rev the engine, if they do not, the alternator is definitely not working.

Charge wire from the alternator to the battery is bad or not connected properly. Check the 120 amp charge fuse link in the underhood fuse box. Voltage at tne battery should be at least 13.5vdc with engine running.

2000 pathfinder battery draining


Sounds like your alternator is doing nothing-the car is running only off the battery. Have your charging system checked-does your battery light stay lit? If that bulb is burnt out, that may be why the charging system is not working. On some charging systems, that bulb is crucial for the alternator to work.
Engine off, a fully charged battery should measure 12.5 volts with a voltmeter. Engine idling, and the voltmeter at the same battery should be showing about 13.5 volts. This tells you the charging system is working.

Car wont start


sounds like you may have an alternater issue if the car dies when you are driveing it could also be the cause of your battery being dead when you go to start it in the morning because the battery may not me getting charged when you are driveing it..... also look on the + side of the battery my pathfinder has some kind of anti theaft wires that have to be connected to the battery and if even one of thows wires wiggle loose it made my truck die (not so exciting when your wife and baby are in the car) so hear a few things i have found with mine let me know if this helps

95 pathfinder wont stay running and doesnt charge


Check all grounds running from all electrical, If there is not a good contact this problem will occur, when you locate the ground surface take sandpaper or even a knife and scrape or sand the connector and the ground surface then reconnect it, It should return to normal if not then it could be a solenoid possibly but not sure
