the vehicle needa a new voltage regulater,this should have been checked before battery and alternator as its the cheapest part to replace
You should have your rotors checked and possibly turned or replaced as necessary You should have your rotors checked and possibly turned or replaced as necessary
The computer only resets when the battery is removed. The alternator just charges the battery, so if the battery is left connected when the alternator is replaced, the computer should not reset.
It should cost between 500-700 based on the brand of the alternator and the shop.
A re-manufactured alternator should cost between $130 and $150 not including labor.
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. If the battery and alt test ok than check the connections to the alternator and battery. The alternator should have 2 connections.
The 'oxygen sensor'may need to be replaced on '96 Sentra when the check engine light comes on. The should be replaced on the '96 Sentra every 100k miles for better fuel efficiency and to protect the converter.
nissan micra has timing chain or cam chain and should be replaced at 200.000k
Break pads should be checked if not replaced. Check condition of rotors at the same time.
Normally it will last the life of the engine and is replaced when the engine is overhauled.
If a washer pump was replaced on a Jeep Wrangler and is still not working the fuses should be checked. The washer switch should also be checked as it could also be causing the pump not to work.
If the light remains on then the system still isn't charging as it should. Check the plug on the alternator and also that the wires to the alt have a good connection.
Even though you have already replaced the thermostat, there are other issues that can cause your Nissan Maxima to overheat. Your fan may be stuck and not operating as it should.
Try jumping it off. If it cranks remove the + side on the battery. If it shuts off the alternator is bad .If it does not shut off clean the battery terminals . Have the battery checked at the Auto Zone.
Check the voltage at the battery with engine running. It should read 13.5 to 15.5 volts. Any less and the alternator is suspect.
If the alternator is bolted on too tight on its bracket,then it will cause the alternator to have a "bend" so that the clearance between the moving parts is reduced and the moving parts eventually jammed.
If it has a serpentine belt - should be automatic through the belt tensioner
The thermostat on the Nissan Altima should be directly behind the alternator. This will be on the passenger side of the car and directly under a large heater hose.
It should have a spring loaded automatic tensioner, if the spring is broke replace the tensioner arm assembly
With engine running at idle you should read 13.5 to 15.5 volts at the battery.
I have your answer for you. I talked to Nissan about this before. First of all, the 2001 Nissan Pathfinder doesnt have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. And Nissan doesnt set a life to these components. It is pretty much ment to last a long time and when it does go. then you need to replace it. Sounds odd but that is what the mechanic at Nissan told me. when it goes it will warp the valves and possible the pistons will hit the head and just destroy the engine. what to listen for when u need the timing chain replaced is metel slapping something or should i say like it isn't oiling properly. i would have it checked out every 60,000 miles.
Start the car, unplug the battery the alternater should power the car. If it dies the alternator is bad. You can also get it checked at any parts store.
You replace them when they stop working. They stop when they stop.
it should be checked out by a qualified person only.
