I have seen this common problem on several Altimas. You have a wire that has been pinched in your power seat that is frayed and grounding out on the seat frame causing the circuit breaker in the BCM to trip. U will need to remove the drivers seat from the car, Use a screwdriver to pop off the seat adjustment knobs, the pop off the plastic cover from the seat switch. There are two phillips head screws holding the switch to the seat. It is necessary to cut the seat material a small amount to access the screws and remove the switch. U will need to unplug the switch from the bottom side of the seat and unclip the wiring harness from the seat frame in order to remove the switch/wiring harness assembly. Once removed you will see the chafed wire. Simply cut the insulator that covers all the wires back far enough to repair the wire. I normally take a small piece of vacuum hose, split it down the middle and put over the chafed wire. Tape everything up with some electrical tape. When putting everything back together, re-route the wiring harness to a different location so it doesn't get pinched again. Re-install the seat and enjoy having all of your power options working again. If you need any more info on this or some helpful pics, let me know. Have a good day!

It may be caused by a bad wheel bearing. To be sure, try to swap the 4 wheels and see if there would be changes in the noise location. If it does change, the noise may be from the tires that are not worn out evenly.

the alternator isn't charging battery that would account for loss of power and also clicking when try to start , try a jump start if it starts then you know its the battery so with engine running check the alternator charge rate with a voltmeter across the battery terminals anything below 13 volts then check the alternator belt is tight enough , good condition etc , then recheck charge rate if still low fit new alternator

Connect you test meter to the high beam bulb contacts and cycle the switch, the voltage should go from Zero to12Vdc, then to Zero as you cycle the switch. If it does your bulb is bad, or not making proper contact with the base. If there is no voltage present, you will have to check the circuit and grounds for an open circuit, assuming all fuses/relays are good.

Have you checked your automatic transmission fluid level? The ATF should be reddish color and clear. This only addresses the AT check light.
The stalling could be unrelated.

It sounds like the switch on your breaks is not actuating when you press the petal, prior to attempting to shift from park. Check under the dash, I believe it should be visible, and mechanical actuation. Hope this helps.

Was any major work done to it recently? If not find some who has experience and ask them to take another car and use 24 volts to start it once and it may start and be fine. When I rebuild engines I have to do this sometimes. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE PERSON KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
