I have a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder and last night the battery died. Before this happened I noticed my RPMs jumping at idle. Was driving it and the battery charging light came on and then it would not let me accelerate and died. It also threw a Code P0507 - idle air control system RPM higher than expected. Pulled the battery out and when to get a new one and was told the battery was completely dead. Bought a new one installed it code was gone and voltage was good. Drove it home and parked it and the battery light and a break light was still on. Figured it would go away and needed time to reset its self. Got up this morning to try and start it and voltage was low at 9.9 and eventually went down to 8 and then died. Any suggestions or ideas?

Definitely sounds like a bad alternator. I wouldn't suspect corrosion on the terminals on a 2014 in Texas. But it wouldn't hurt to check them. Possibly under warranty still?
