Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima it's been driving just
fine until the other day ago well I was driving it out
of nowhere I tried to accelerate and there's no
power it did not go I push the pedal always down
to the floor and it was not accelerating like I had no
power then it would just barely roll I mean like it
must be in limp mode aka safe mode or something
in that matter so then the next day I got a brand
new battery then the car seemed like it was
running just fine for a few hours and the same
thing happen again no acceleration no power but
to top it all off I turn the car off try to turn the car
back on and it has no power like the battery is

You probably didnt need a new battery, what you need is a new alternator, you can check to confirm by charging the battery over night your car will work fine after, after you drive it and alternator wont do its job your throttle body starts to act up because its not getting good voltage.
