the car start ! Only if I drive the car every day! If I don't drive for 3 days won't start ( the car battery was tasted)
Infiniti Mechanic: Mike V., Infiniti Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Ok, the code then isn't relevant to the problem with the battery.

If the battery is good and losing charge after only a few days, you have what is called a parasitic drain. This is difficult to locate and requires a volt meter and some good knowledge on how to use it and electrical diagnosis.

Basically you have to take a volt meter and hook it to the battery. Then close everything down and wait for the computers to go to sleep. Once that happens, you will see the draw on the meter. Then you have to pull the main fuses one at a time until the draw drops off. Once you pull the right fuse that eliminates the draw, you then have to test each circuit that is on that fuse until you find the short.

Please let me know if there is any more I can do to help you from here.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
