Change battery on 2005 nissan frontier wont start


Hi, If the problem is associated to you replacing the battery, then it could be a few different things. 1) Is the replacment battery fully charged? If not, charge and retry. 2) Are the positive and negative battery cables connected correctly to the battery? With this you have to be sure that you have a good connection to each battery terminal. Try removing the cables and taking a wire brush to the terminals. Once clean, reconnect them and try to start again. 3) Is the positive cable broken? If broken replace the cable. 4) Is the negative battery cable broken or properly connected to the car? If broken, replace the cable. Good Luck!

My 2005 300 will did not start so I checked the battery and cleaned it up jumped the battery it started up notice the cable is messed up what should I do.


Aftermarket parts houses have replacement battery cables for some cars. For other cars, there are replacement battery cable terminal ends available. You cut the existing terminal off of the battery cable and the replacement terminal will clamp on to the end of the cable with bolts.

NOTE: Nothing on your car works without the battery. I have had many vehicles towed into my shop because of improper cable end replacements. Make sure the connections are clean and tight and free of corrosion.
