Are you sure all of the fuses are ok? I ask because my Integra is wired such that the parking/running/tailights and instrument panel lights share a common fuse. When your instrument panel lights go out, you instantly know that you don't have any tailights either.
Just happened to me the other day; a small wiring glitch and a fuse fixed me right up.

I don't have a solution except that I have a 97 altima with about 157K miles and my dashboard went dark this past Sunday. I mean car just completely died at a stop light, the warning I got hours earlier were, brake and battery and air bag lights came on. And then nothing, the accelearation slowed down and then stalled.
So my mechanic checks it out and tells me that the alternator needs to be fixed or replaced and needs a new computer because the alternator wore it down, I guess? So end result, when I get the car, he tells me he's replaced the computer and rewired the alternator into the computer. I replaced my alternator last about 4 years ago in 2006 at a Sears tire shop.
He charged me $500 for parts and labor for the replacement computor. I plan to call him to verify if he kept the same alternator in the car. I hope to not have this problem again for a while, yet as I talk to people with older similar vehicles (Pontiac grand prix, et) the samething happens as well.
I just want to know if this is something that I need to anticipate happening every now and again??

I hope that you are not one of those unlucky people that inadvertently somehow managed to hit the dashboard light dimmer (hard to find on some later altima models.Refer to the owner's manual.
#54 of 59 2002 Nissan Altima - Potential Electrical Problem??
Sep 08, 2010 (5:39 am)
I've owned this 2002 Nissan Altima since 2005, it's been a great car. I've done all the oil changes and tune-ups as required, but recently I've driven the car a few times and while i'm driving the car seems to lose power. It starts slowing down even while i'm pressing on the accelerator and then accelerates by itself when i'm not pressing the accelerator. Is this an electrical problem?? Sometimes I've had to pull-off the road because the car has totaly stopped. I've had to park the car for safety reasons, I'm hoping someone has had a similiar experience and can tell me what going on!!! Thanks.

Has you mileage per gallon dropped. I know people who don't know how to shift from 3rd to drive. It sounds like that could be happening. I own a 2003 Altima and hate the shift controls.

Did you figure this out? My 98 does exactly the same thing. The engine doesn't seem to vary at all, just the lights.

I was wondering if you found an answer to your electrical problem? Same thing just happened to me. Car starts fine but none of the electricals work no radio, wipers, blinkers, power locks, power windows. Only thing that does work is the headlights and brake lights.
