Question about 2010 Nissan Sentra 2.0

1 Answer

Dim battery and brake warning lights on

I just bought a used 2010 Sentra with 9400 miles and noticed that the batter and brake lights are dimly illuminated. When I pull up on the parking brake, the brake warning light is brightly illuminated but the battery light remains dim. The battery appears to be made by AAA and looks brand new and i don't believe that a AAA battery is an OEM product. What could be the cause?

I had a routine tire rotation and car alignment on yesterday. As I drove my car later in the evening, the vsc/ecm dash light came on, followed by the brake and battery light, radio and dash lamp lights...


Sounds like you lost the charge from the alternator.
When the alternator quits charging your battery light comes on and your car will run on battery power only...and only for a short time.
As the battery gets its stored energy used up...everything that is electrical will get slow or dim.

I'd check your alternator for proper operation and its drive belt...

Hope this helps...

Check to see if the belt has broke that drives the alternator, if it has not broke, Then check all electrical connections to the alternator. Last take the alt to the shop to have it tested.
