Hello all ,
I have an 09 Coupe SE with the V6. I love the car but it has an odd issue,
the car seems to have a parasitic drain on the battery, which will go dead in a week or so when parked. Now, when I either charge the battery or install a brand new battery as soon as I connect the battery cables the alarm will sound
and the lights will flash and not stop until I disconnect the battery.
WHAT is wrong with my car ??

re: what's wrong w/ Altima?

Thanks for your reply , but that doesn't explain why the alarm would trigger when you connect the battery cables.
What would cause that ?

Have you checked the battery terminals? They could be covered with rust/oil/grease causing the battery not to charge properly. A car alarm usually goes off when it senses that the battery has low energy. It also goes off when you try to turn on the engine with a dead battery.

I found out what's wrong !! I put new batteries in the 2 intellikeys or what ever they are called BACKWARDS !!
I felt pretty dumb but at least I can admit it.
