Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Do you have a Volt Meter? I would like to check the Alternator to see how it's charging

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

That is with the car at idle?

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

While it is at idle, now turn the head lights on, AC on and rear defroster and then tell me what you are getting?

the car runs fine no hesitation, when you come to a stop all the lights turn off and the car dies
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

I am just trying to see if the Alternator is charging properly, You may also want to disconnect the battery and check all the electrical connections at the Alternator after we finish testing, and also have the battery checked. I have seen batteries with internally shorted cells cause that also.

Let me know what you get with the last charging test.

Has new battery, all the connections have been cleaned tightened and we even cleaned the injectors
.
Like I said the only time it happens is when your coming to a stop and are still rolling then all the lights, dash and head lights just quite/shut off and the motor
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
its like someone cut the power off
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
turn the ignition off and on again and there is power then its sometimes hard to start. few seconds later it starts
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

I would still like to double check the Alternator with all loads on.

Other than that, a poor connection at the starter can cause that.

could a faulty break switch cause a temp loss of of power like tripping a breaker?
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

No, a bad brake switch would cause either the brake lights not work, or for them to stay on.

What is your voltage at the battery with all loads on?

Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
describe all loads on
lights, Blinkers and 2500 rpm
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

Car at idle. AC on, head lights and rear defroster. Idle not at 2500 .. No blinkers
