#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.

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 ?

I have the same problem in my 1996 Altima. For the last few summers i've almost died in my car. Sometimes my air works and sometimes it doesn't. It often doesn't work on really hot days. They air will blow cold for a second or two if at all and then it blows out hot, muggy, wet, nasty air. I had my a/c recharged last week but that didn't do anything. I've talked to many mechanics and no one knows what is going on. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. My wife and two daughters are dying without a/c. Thanks

I've also noticed that the a/c button light doesn't go on when it is hot out side but sometimes at night when it cools down the light will go on and the a/c will work fine. My wife and two daughters are dying without a/c. Please help. Thanks
#1101 of 2710 2005 Altima 2.5S Air Conditionier clutch
Jun 28, 2005 (9:04 am)
I cannot seem to control the air conditioner compressor on my new Altima 2.5S with the 4 cyl engine. Normally, I like to run the fan without running the AC. With this car, once I hit the one of the automatic compressor modes such as Max AC or defrost, I cannot stop the compressor until I shut off the fan or shut off the ignition. If I just shut off the fan, the compressor restarts on its own when I turn the fan back on. The AC control button in the center of the temp dial has no effect at this point. Compressor control and switches all work normal as long as I do not use the max ac or defrost modes. The dealership was aware that the problem existed and had told me about it working normal if I shut off the ignition and restarted the car. Has anyone else seen this problem? Also, does it hurt anything if I disconnect the compressor with the single wire leading to it?
