    if the alternator is new, maybe your battery not holding charge make sure to check that or your alternator still defective get that as well tested.

    Use multimeter to check battery power while car is turned off. Then, touch black to black on battery and red to power lead on alternator. This reading should be same as the battery as this wire is continuous flow and always hot. If this reads 0 then the wire is loose from the battery or the charging system fusible link in burnt out and needs replaced. Here it is: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2000-Nissan-Datsun...
