i really dont know much!! It kinda sounded like it didnt wanna start this morning when i came to work. I work 1 mile from my house so maybe im not driving enough for the batery to recharge from starting???
Nissan Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 1 month ago

if the battery cables are clean and tight see if it starts with a jump start

if it does and after jumped it drives fine then the odds are the battery is defective

if you have any questions please ask

The man i bought the car from said he put a brand new battery in it before i bought it.
Nissan Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 1 month ago

well we need to see if it starts up with a jump start

if so the battery is defective if it will not then the starter is usually bad

its usually one of the 2 being bad if the battery cables are clean and tight

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!
