Wow, I hope my car doesn't die when it is diving either ;).

Seriously now, it still sounds like the charging system to me. Maybe the problem is intermittent? Perhaps you could get a second opinion on the alternator.

I had a similar problem.. the wires going to the battary would untight slowly .. and the the car would die.... I don't know exactly what the guy at the garage did but its been working since then and charged me 10bucks ... you should check that before changing anything!

I might be wrong i'm no mecanich :shhh:

More details please! What do you mean die's? Does it happen at a stop or while accelerating or just cruising? Does the lights on the dash come on? Does the car start right back up? Is there any hesitation or bucking prior to it stalling out? Does your PS still work or no?

when you are driving the car lights go dim and the car dies. (just crusing) no lights come on power steering is good. the car has to be jumped runs about a mile then dies checked the battery it is good pulled the alt had it checked it is good some how the alt is not charging the battery or keeping the car running.

Have you changed the alternator belt? If not do that, it's $10 and take 20 minutes tops. If the belt is new check the tension. Is there any squeeling? Did you spill any oil on the belt taking the filter off while doing an oil change?

man problems with the altizzy suck! Mine did the same thing but it was way worse it wouldnt run a week after a charge.. it would run good for half a day and by the end of the day it would be VERY hard to start and when i ended up taking it to infiniti it died 3 times while i was driving over there and a final time when i pulled into the service area..
