Hi. Hoping someone can help.

About 2 weeks ago my 2012 QQ+2 Tekna did a strange thing with all the needles on the dashboard flickering for about 20 seconds. I got it turn over but all the settings reset themselves. 

Then a couple of days ago it wouldn't start. I called out Green Flag and the recovery man said the battery was an 030 EFB and needed replacing. He made a few calls and said he could get it and it would take him a couple of hours to collect a battery and fit at a cost of £200, which at the time I wasn't able to wait for, so I went to Halfords, who on the phone said they had one for £120.

Got to Halfords and they said they have never seen a battery like this before and that none of their stores stock it.

Today I took it to a local garage and they have ordered the battery from Nissan and it will cost me £145 fitted. It arrives tomorrow.

Can anyone confirm exactly what battery I need and that it is a very rare battery? I'm concerned that the garage may not be getting the right battery or that the quality may be rubbish, as Nissan also quoted me £200.

Thanks in advance.

Ask the garage to change it. Mine went the same way at New Year. I had it changed foc the next day. Another owner turned up with the same issue while was there. It's a known problem by Nissan and rather than do a recall they decided to replace as and when the problem presented itself.

Nissan can be competitive for replacement batteries - try another dealer.

Hopefully the garage have ordered the right one. I was concerned they might have got it wrong as the price was significantly lower than Nissan and Green Flag quoted me.

I also found it weird that when I typed my reg number into any of the many auto parts websites I couldnít find a Stop Start battery or EFB 030 (if thatís even correct) and that Halfords donít stock it.

Anyway, fingers crossed the local garage is legit.
