Replaced alternator and brake/battery lights still on
Hello everyone after doing a search I found that when the battery light and brake light come on at the same time that the alternator is about to go. Well I replaced it with an OEM alt. and turned on the car and both lights still came on. What else could be causing this? Any help would be appreciated.
It's a 1996 Altima
I don't have a system
The brake fluid level is fine.
Batt and brake light on when the car is running is Alternator ... or you have a short to ground on the wire ...

I got the alternator from a Nissan dealership. And I tried resetting the ecu. On the short to ground on the wire do you mean the wire coming from the alternator, I'm guessing the wire that screws into the back using a small phillips head screw is the ground wire. It would definately suck if the new alternator is bad especially since it came from the dealership.
Thanks for the replies. I should have known it wasn't going to work since I didn't have a very hard time replacing it. If you guys have any more ideas please post.
