There is an active service bulletin on this car that shows an updated programming for the charging system. It's possible that your vehicle needs this programming. I'm afraid the only way to tell is with a diagnostic scan tool. Do you plan to do any diagnosis/repair yourself?

no, no tools for diagnosis

Here is the TSB from Nissan. I would call the dealer and see if they can look up your vehicle's history and see whether this has been done. If not, I would take it in and have them perform the reprogram. I assume you still have warranty? If so, they will have a tow service that they provide.

I can't get the file to attach. Let me give the system a minute and see if it will work again.

What Customers are Saying:

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!
