how do you know the battery is good? just because the lights work?

I guess what I was expecting was not another question but a checklist of what to do. What should I do to determine if the battery is good or not or if it is not the battery and is something else?
Nissan Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 3 months ago

I need to collect information before I suggest what the issue is.

have you not tested the battery? how do you know it is good?

what happens when you try to start?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I have not test the battery. All the lights come on. When I press the start button it makes a little noise but not anything else. I have not tried to jump it yet. It just seemed odd because I have not had any issue up until yesterday. Today when I pressed the button it seemed to act more like it would start but it didnt
How long can I press the start button? How many times should I try before quitting?

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

this is 99% just a weak battery. you need to attempt a jump start as a next step

if it will does not start then it is likely a faulty starter, but again, 99% just a weak battery

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

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!
