Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
After the car stalls, does the engine crank and not start?
Are the battery and brake light on at the same time when you are running?
Ok, so, you are assuming the battery was running low and the alternator wasn't charging. You need to confirm this.
Was the check engine light on when it wasn't accelerating?
Here are my thoughts.
First, you need to confirm it's a battery issue. I say this because a bad mass air flow sensor can cause similar issues, so I would hate to see you chasing an alternator and bad battery to find out it's not the problem.
The maf can go bad on you or even the fuel pump without setting the check engine light. The P0441 won't do this to you. It's an evap code.
The reason I asked about it starting back up is because if the engine had turned off because of the battery, it certainly would not crank. I think that you really need to confirm the issue of the alternator. I do not think it's the problem, the battery and brake light should be on if its not charging.
13.3 is about 1 volt low.
Check the charging again with the wipers on, blower on high and the headlights on. We want to see about 14.2 volts coming out of the alternator for proper performance. If you used an aftermarket alternator, it could be the problem.
Sounds good let me know what you find. It's possible the belt may be a little loose. They can be a pain to adjust.
Yes, that sure is, but be careful doing that old test on the newer cars with computers, it can fry them :O
Thinking maybe the battery was showing the voltage and not the alternator. Make sure you check the battery charge with the meter first, then fire it up and measure the difference.
It does look that way. Sadly the aftermarket alternators are not the best bet. We stopped offering them at the dealership I worked for because they just aren't built well enough.
