I have a 1996 Sentra GLE, manual 5-speed, about 150,000 miles. It started having trouble starting about 2 months ago. Acted like the battery was dead, wouldn't crank. Wiggling the key around seemed to help and she started up. No more issues for about a month, then "dead" again. Jump started fine, checked the battery, it's fine. Replaced the alternator, it tests strong when the car runs. She started fine 4 times in a row, then dead again. Started with a jump and started to drive it down my lane and it died, like I'd turned off the key. Now it only starts with a jump. The battery still tests 12 volts. Power at the ignition switch when she's running is 13 volts at the green wire, at the black/pink, at the black/red, and at the white/blue. When the key is in the "run" position but the car is not running I get 7 volts at all the above. When the car is running, if I turn on the radio and the hazard lights the car almost dies.
Help!

Check your battery cables and the connections....
Put your voltmeter on the cable after the batt terminal, then have someone turn the key...
