I have a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5L and I've been having issues with my battery. Within 3 years I have replaced my battery and alternator every spring/summer due to the fact that the battery keeps dying.

Asked by Dec 28, 2014 at 11:08 AM about the 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have additionally replaced the connectors
as well since they were getting old.
Whenever I check the battery the readings
are always fine and with the alternator. Yet it
still randomly dies, usually over night.
Sometimes it starts and if I drive for a bit,
shut it off and then come back after 15
minutes, battery is dead. so I always have to
get it boosted. What could be the issue? The
alternator also went bad two times. Therefor
was replaced along with every dead battery.
