found out what's causing my car to stall out... the computer is going into fail safe mode... Safe Mode.. read below ..
A reputable FIRESTONE manager help me out... and reset my vechicle computer therefore removing the bad codes. Now I can drive my car on the highway.
Hudson Nissan did the same twice, but they never told me what they did. This tactic is to milk more money out of me.. the first reset I drove my car for 2 months no problems.
the last reset lasted 1 month,,,
In the case of a sensor malfunction, the computer may go into a "fail safe" or "limp in" mode. For example, the Crank Angle Sensor dies and no longer sends a signal to the computer. The computer sees the signal is missing and notes the malfunction code and turns on the check engine light. Now lacking that CAS, signal it goes to the base values stored in the computer and uses that value to control the ignition timing. It's not perfect, but it doesn't leave you stranded on the side of the road. Quite often the computer limits engine RPM to about 2500 RPM to prevent any possible engine damage and further alert the driver to a problem.

I put this info to help other Nissan owners out... I wish someone woul have done the same for me, after spending 1000.00 's I found the true problem with my car

ediamiam: Yes, trust me, I realize the car has a big engine in it, and I love it. I was just taken back by the price on the tires. It may have the sport package and all that stuff, but it's still an Altima, lol! I was able to find them for $100 on the dot including istallation through a friend. I guess thats better than $170. Even for that price though, I would still get the 3.5SE over "sticking" with the 2.5 ANY day. LOVE my car. Thanks for the explanation though!
#1093 of 2710 Alternator light and Brake light fail to go off
Jun 23, 2005 (6:24 am)
I had recently a problem with my Nissan Altima SE 1995 /automatic/- the alternator light and Brakes light at the dashboard from time to time were flashing / especially evenings, when many consumers of electricity were used - A/C, wipers, lights, blower fan / and failed to go off. Did anyone had the problem like that? Did he/she find a solution for that?
Thank you very much for your help!

it's kind of a pain in the butt I had to take mine to the shop once I got the strut assembly off. You need special tool to get the nut off. You need a big allen wrench to take it off.

I have the same problem! I took the car to the dealer today, and they kind of lauged at me! They test drove the car, and were able to duplicate, but were unable to repair! I've made some modifications to the front plastic peice that covers the bottom of the engine, but believe it's coming from the brake cover on the passenger side. I've got to get under the car to find out how to remedy because the Nissan dealer wasn't very helpful. It's very annoying especially when you want to go 75 mph but can't without confidence. Let me know if you've found a reolution for this.

I also have a 2005 altima 2.5s auto. I've only had it for about three weeks. the wife drives it the most. It only has 191 miles on it, but it to has a little harsher shift from first to second too. But one theory I have is that the first gear ratio is so low and the difference is much greater than the rest of the gears. The tranny has to work a little harder. Also I have noticed a little more engine vibration when I am at a stop light. I'll stop and then after a little bit I feel a difference, but the rpms are the same. Anyone else notice this.

Jun 26, 2005 (3:39 pm)
Has anyone changed the tail light on an 02 -05? If so, please let me know the steps and if there is anything that I need to watch out for.
Just as a tip, I got a good used replacement off of ebay for $4.99 + 15 shipping

I own a 2005 altima , bought a month back , done just 3000 Kms . It has an automatic transmission and i too feel that the vehicle jerks as if the clutch slips when acceleration is suddenly cut off on first or second gear . Are you facing some thing similar to this ?
