1996 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive 200000 miles

The other day while driving my lights went dim and all my lights on my dash started going crazy. I bought a new battery and had them check my alternator and they said everything was fine. Yesterday my air conditioner wouldn't blow cold air and my battery light came on for about a minute and then everything worked fine. This morning my lights went dim again my dash lights went crazy again. What could the problem be if it is not my battery or my alternator?

It sounds like an intermittent problem with the alt or a problem with the body control module (BCM). If it is the alt, it will continue to get worse until someone can actually identify it. NOTE: There are fuseable links between the alt and the battery that could be going bad. I would check wiring to make sure everything looks good.

Let me know what you find. Also, the BCM will need tested by a tech.
