Hello! I have a 2006 Nissan Altima. For about a few weeks, the brake and battery light has been going on. Today as I was driving, I couldn't accelerate. I got into the quickest parking spot

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

And put it in park, and it accelerated,
and the brake and battery light came
on again. I shut the car off and went
to start it again, and it wouldn't turn
over. Yet, the radio could go on, and
those lights were flashing. I just put
so much $ in it last week for welding
of under carriage rot! Could it be the
alternator?

If battery light is on alternator not charging so its the alternator or alternator fuse now as far as the brakes go have them checked maybe be a simple brake job or not but best to get checked.

They told me last week I needed brakes. I had new tire rods put in. I did the welding and tire rods, and was going to do the brakes this week. Grand total for the welding and tire rods was $646, so I'm doing things week by week. This car is killing me!
