Q: My Altima would not move after stopping at stop sign. I had not had any problems the 20 miles I had just driven.

asked by on

when the car doesnt move it is as if the linkage has broke, but when you shift in neutral the linkage is obviously working. during this time i watch my gauges and dash lights come on an go off erratically....the warning lights that stay lit is the battery and abs..then battery failed to start after the problem occurred...i charged battery on trickle charger for 2 hrs then car started and ran as normal for bout 5-6 miles then the stalling problem reoccurred.....

My car has 60000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi and thanks for contacting YourMechanic. The battery in the vehicle has a burned cell and it needs replaced. If the battery was low on voltage, it is best to put the battery on a trickle charger for more than 8 hours, to ensure a full charge with amperage. Just because a battery may read 12.6 volts doe not mean that it is good. If you need further assistance with your vehicle, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you with your no starting issue.
