i thought it was my battery when this problem happened. so i brought a brand new battery. and a new alternator,. Its still doin the same problem but worse. Car dies when im driving.. car lights is Dim. radio shuts off!
Have you tested the new alternator because it looks like you still have a charging system problem
Ask Your Own Nissan Question

its a new alternator. tested it. its GOOD!
im not sure if my battery is getting charged from my alternator,. Could it be a connection on the battery?
if the cable is loose or corroded the alternator should be tested on the car at the batter with a charging system tester

New do not mean it is good

could this be why my car alarm? lights? idles? radio shutting off? is the battery? Also i have to jump start my car for itto drive.
Did you check the battery voltage with the engine running?
Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Nope
You need to do that to see if the battery is getting charge

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
i have a 20 volt battery charger. when i connect it to my car battery my charger pack drops really low
If not check the cables and test the alternator again with a system tester they will do it free at auto zone
Ask Your Own Nissan Question
That is because the battery power is low
Ask Your Own Nissan Question
My recommendation is to test the battery for charging voltage and test the new alternator and inspect the battery cables
