Nissan Serious Problems

Q. Hi Vincent, The serious problem happened Saturday evening. I have a Nissan Altima GXE, 4 non-antilock brakes (front rear drum), EFI, 105,000 miles.

1) The red indicator showing both the Battery and the came on at the same time. I at the master cylinder and saw that the was at the full line. I bought a new battery about six months ago to the original Nissan battery.

The battery looked fine no corrosion. Other than the two indicator lights, the car seems to be right now and drives okay.

Any to what’s wrong here? the new battery just be buying for a blown alternator, with the car to conk out anytime? What the brake indicator light on at the same time?

I had an 84 Toyota which had the brake light on when its alternator blew. this be the problem with the 96 too (you might have to the wiring diagram to check on

2) Not as serious, the first three AC fan doesn’t work, but the fourth highest) setting works ok.

can I do to get the other three lower fan to work? Could it be a fouled up

3) Also not as serious for now. My leading into my muffler I thought about welding the two together. A Goodyear place changed my oil said that the two not be welded together and that a new system was needed (for the 1996 Altima).

The Goodyear place came with a $800.00 estimate to the exhaust from the Cat.Converter on This seems unreasonable. I think the Nissan dealership be even bigger than

Any help here would be as I am unemployed right now and can’t so much.

4) My Air Bag indicator light is red and all the time. Are the air bags …? I use the belts all the time anyway. Is here something I can do? If not, about the probable expense?

Should I just get electrician’s and cover the light so it doesn’t me?

A. There isn’t here that’s too terrible. go by the numbers.

1) Those lights on indicates a bad diode pack the alternator. The alternator itself is still charging and you can drive it this for a long time. The thing is, if the alternator dies, you know it.

Replacing the alternator will this.

2) There is a blower resistor that controls the fan speed. When it goes bad you all blower speeds except which is a direct connection. the blower motor resistor fix this. It’s easy to It’s in the heater box behind the box.

All you have to do is unplug it, two screws and take it out. Pop the new one in and done.

3) Go to the Nissan Dealer. An system from the catalytic back is only about plus 1.5 hours labor.

4) The flashing Airbag light is you it found something wrong. If it flashing after you put in the new battery, telling you power was cut. no kidding.

The only way to reset the is to have a Nissan Dealer up their CONSULT to the car, and clear the codes.
