Electrical problem
2002 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 83k miles

Replaced the battery and the alternator. Pick it up from the shop drove way everything working just fine. Then today the wife is driving the car and the windshield wiper come on and she can stop them. She gets home turns the car off. Goes to start nothing. I put it on a charge for about 4hours. I go to open the door the interior light comes on. So I close the door and the lights stay on. So I open the door and touch the lever on the left side of the the sterring wheel and the lights go off. Nothing I open the trunk to see if the light in the trunk will light up and it doses. What could my problem be.
thanks
Allen

Hi Allen,

Thank you for the donation.

Seems the multifunction switch is bad and is self operating with the slightest movement of the lever. Check if it is securely tightened to steering column, if yes, you might have to replace the switch to rectify.
