Battery light and Brake light on


Asked by Jun 28, 2016 at 09:31 PM about the 2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V, 2.5.  I replaced the battery and the alternator.  Brake light and battery light still on.  Battery reads 13volts when the car is off.  Reads 15.4 volts when the car is on, making me think that the alternator is working.  Could it be a ground, or fuse, or is there a way to reset the warning lights for the alternator.  Battery was out of the car for 24 hours, and lights came right back on.  Even reset check engine light just because ( it wasn't on in the first place).  Any help would be much appreciated.

1 Answer


We have been driving it for 2 days now. Battery maintaining volts fine, and alternator still charging as far as I can tell.
