Battery? Alternator? and no Dashboard Light on 2000 Nissan Maxima

I am having a problem with my 2000 Nissan Maxima SE Standard with the Battery draining...charged the battery and still killing the battery. But the problem is no Battery light turns on saying there is a problem with the alternator on the dashboard. Any opinions of other options to look at before I replace the altanator?

First you need to make sure that nothing is on in the car. Dome, map, glove box, lights. Sounds like like you have a draw which is discharging the battery. Before you just shoot a alternator at it. Have the charging system checked out by Advance or Autozone. It's free.
