Hey Guys

After a bit of advice. Looks like the battery on my 1.6 2014 QQ has just died. Is it a quick and easy fix to replace on your own? Ive done this fine on other cars but never with a stop start battery.

If not any how much a battery and fitting is likely to cost?

Thanks!

I'm guessing you are no longer under warranty?

If it's a FIAMM battery (you'll see FIAMM on the label), they are known to be bad and die after 3 years.  You could probably email Nissan GB customer services and have a whinge about known faults, not fit for purpose, etc, you never know, you may get a goodwill replacement.

Wot he said ^^^^^^.

Mine died in my 2014 QQ, but it was within warranty, so got replaced FOC.

Known issue - ask Nissan nicely.

They do watch this forum.

Easy to swap over; remove live battery connection first, then neutral/black lead. It needs to be a Stop/Start specific battery, and next time you have serviced get Nissan dealer to code to your car's ECM.
This link is one suitable type, but Google away/ ring around for best price. I got best price for my wife's car battery by buying online.

GelJ:
What happens if the battery is not coded to car's ECM? Does this apply to J10 also?
Thanks for posting.

Battery will still work, but the car's ECM will be registered with wrong battery detail.

I have a 2yr1 month Qashqai Tekna 1.6 petrol turbo 65 reg,this morning I went to get a paper and it  started first time.I returned to the car and it would not start. It had just been servioed and I called the RAC. Their service was first class and on a thorough check it was found that the battery would not sustain a charge and was dead. Luckily the RAC had replacement battery in their vehicle. It was fitted under warranty and it started immediately. RAC stated that for a Nissan battery to go after 25 months is very uncommon and they found Qashqais to be in the reiable sector that is not receiving many call outs.

I saw the RAC mechanic in the driver's seat with his laptop and he was fingering the stop start  switch. RAC sent me an email stating all the work carried out which included checking the alternator,the system and drain tests. I only got to know about the ECM on going on line. I can only assume this was  done as the mechanic was quite efficient.The form stated  that the Nissan battery was supplied under manufacturer's warranty.

A most excellent RAC chap replaced my battery at 16 months old/8000 miles, and spent some time logging and deleting the stored errors (caused by the battery), making sure the system was clean, and then coding the new battery in. It was perhaps more important than usual because he fitted a Bosch S5 A08 AGM (absorbent glass mat) type, which has better charging capacities and rates to the old Fiamm EFB (enhanced flooded) type; the data had to be input in order to run at maximum capacity. If they'd fitted an identical battery they may not have needed to code, just clear the computer - but I'm only conjecturing.

As stated earlier I had my 65 reg. Qashqai (after 25mths_) battery replaced with a new Nissan battery which RAC had in their van. I have now heard from good authority elsewhere in the trade that some Nissan dealers will not accept  brand new cars from the factory if they have a French battery as they have a habit of  not lasting very long and packing up with faulty cells.

Isn't Fiamm an Italian company though?

Apparently the Fiamm batteries originate from Nissan doing a deal with Renault and that is where the French connection is. They may be made in Italy but I am informed that many dealers now insist on Nissan batteries being put in the new Qashqais as Nissan have a new battery plant in Sunderland.

When my FIAMM battery was replaced under warranty in March, I got a new Nissan OEM one and it is manufactured by Mitsubishi.

Seems to be doing the job well.

just had same problem,
daughters qq 3yrs3months old,came to my house went to go home battery dead,
cut a long story short called rac,battery GOOD.if problem occurs phone again and will be taken to nissan to have battery replaced.
rac know about the problem but nissan are reluctant for them to change battery(rac words).
no problem for us except i have a new 3 month qq so checked which battery i had on mine and yes it is one of those flam ones.
if nissan know theres a fault why are they continuing to use these crap batteries.
also having just purchased my car could i ask for a replacement battery as it is a known fault.
qqvisia,qq360,xtrailntec,now qq tekna,gun metallic,side steps,wind deflectors,mud flaps,nice car.

Think you need to check with Nissan dealer and let them know what RAC said and keep a record of conversation should they fail to replace, in my opinion what happens if you are stuck in the wilds and battery packs in, yes you can call the RAC then I would suggest that you may wish to claim against Nissan for some form of compensation as you have made them aware of your concerns.
