WHY WILL CAR NOT STAY RUNNING?

2002 Nissan Maxima • 120,000 miles

Relay box was ticking yesterday and car would not start. I disconnected battery to go have it tested it was good. I pulled the horn fuses and ticking stopped. Car now started but will not stay running, oil light slip light and battery light come on

Check the alternator and its charging rate. The engine would stall if the idling speed is too low. This can occur when the battery is disconnected and the computer has to relearn.
