Can an alternator failure cause the engine not to accelerate when in drive?

Asked by Nov 01, 2016 at 10:11 PM about the 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2004 Nissan Altima will not start. Jumped off and idle and rev fine while in park. Put car in drive and press the gas pedal and very little response. 15 MPH max. The alternator tests bad at 9.3 VDC. Can the defective alternator affect the acceleration because of computer control receiving incorrect voltage?
