Fix Nissan Alternator Problems
Shops report that Nissan Alternator Problems can sometimes be traced to an intermittent in the plug that goes into the voltage regulator in the alternator. The factory harness is short (less than 1 foot) and can fray the wires in the terminals. Nissan techs report that they replace this item quite frequently.
Also, quality complaint abound on rebuilt alternators. Shop increasingly refuse to even install them due to the high failure rate. If you’re set on buying rebuilt, my advice is to buy Denso or Hitachi, not Bosch (That’s just my opinion however). But before you plunk down real money on any rebuilt, check out the online prices for new alternators (they cost much less than you think).
