car shutting down while driving

Asked by Feb 29, 2016 at 01:36 PM about the 2011 Nissan Pathfinder Silver Edition 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when driving my wife said her car would shut down. all gauges and radio screen would go down and then come back on. car would sometimes come back on and sometimes need restarted. I lifted the hood and noticed the battery holder was loose and touching the positive terminal on battery. was this my stalling problem?

Most definitely if any metal touches the positive terminal if it is going to a ground it will cause the problem you are having.

Thank u
