Sounds like an alternator problem[not charging]To test just get a dc volt meter and check the battery voltage at idle with the engine running[should be between 13.2 and 14.5 volts.if its under 12 volts then the alternator is not charging the battery and it will have to be removed for repair.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

Brake light and battery light both on


Hi Greg:

Is it possible that the brake switch is stuck on?

That would eventually cause the battery to go dead.



I'd suggest you charge the battery and try temporarily removing the wires from the brake light switch. See if the problem continues. Do not run the vehicle on the road without functional brake lights. UNSAFE, and ILLEGAL.

Battery and break indicator showed up and power steering went out all at the same time


Are you sure the drive belt is still on the engine ?
The battery light usually comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery, and the power steering is also belt driven.
The brake warning light can come on when the brake fluid is low, but also when the battery light comes on.

Was fine started great then voltage hand went left abs light came on brake light came on dome lights came on head lights went off all panel lights went crazy blinking then jeep would not start without


Seems to be having problems with the alternator. Alternator itself can be bad, but also the voltage regulator, which sits inside the PCM (powertrain control module).
Don´t continue using with battery voltage around the 10V, because it will ruin your battery as well. Completely charge the battery with an external battery charger and let the alternator be checked out first.

Battery light still on after changing alternater and battery


The battery light goes 2 ways, one is showing the battery taking a charge because the battery was drained, and 2, the battery is not taking a charge and will be dead in 20 mins. I should say the charge light. So, now that you have replaced the battery and the alternator, I would assume there is something else wrong. Your battery might be charging up. Your new battery might be dead.
Check out all the fuses, you will probably find one blown that has nothing to do with it but it causes the light to come on. I went nuts once(?) when my brake light on the dash came on, I had brakes, but couldn't find anything wrong, I checked everything, went as far as making an app with a mechanic to check out my brakes, on my way to the shop, a guy pulls up along side of me and says my brake lights are out. Duh, popped in the fuse and went back home. So, check it out. Hope this helps.

Yesterday when I went to work the battery and brake light were on when I got off the exit to get to work the battery and brake lights went off. Approxmitaly 12 hours later when I started the car to go home...


Try a day time running light modual,these things are notorious for messing up,and since they are supposed to work when the car is charging it seems like the logical solution.

My brake lights stay on on my Toyota and the


Try pulling your brake pedal up and see if that causes the brake lights to turn off. The problem is most likely a bad brake switch that fits up under your dash and is attached to your pedal, it may not be releasing right and causing your lights to stay on. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes and I will see if I can help some more if needed...
