2002 Nissan Pathfinder _ Electrical Problems

\015 -Replaced alternator and battery\012-"Meter" fuse keeps popping causing dashboard to go dead. This has happened 3 times in the last 5 days. \012-Car will run fine for a short while and then all other electrical components fail (clock, stereo, windows, wipers, blinkers, etc.) and then the car shuts down and will not start. \012\012Dealership says the new alternator looks good and is hooked up correctly. The battery has its charge. They cannot figure out what is wrong with it. Is this a problem with the control unit? What is causing the fuse to continue to pop like that. Why does car die? How can I fix this?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 29-06-2020

Answers :

Unusual the dealer can't or won't find the problem.
A mechanic would check everything in that circuit for shorts to ground.
Was the fuse blowing before the alternator and battery were replaced ?
Based on the wiring diagrams I would vote for a defective alternator.
The 10 amp fuse number 8 powers the cluster which also goes to the alternator. If the alternator shorts out internally it would blow that number 8 fuse and take the cluster with it.
The other circuits you mentioned are controlled by the key switch but are fused after the switch. So if the switch was causing the problem it should be blowing a 40amp fuse.
I would probably take the alternator off and have someone else test it.
