Question about 2006 Nissan Titan

1 Answer

Tried to start my 2006 Titan KC and it appeared to "suddenly" have a dead battery. The gauges all went berzerk for about 5 seconds and then appeared to reset with clicking and buzzing under the dash. I noticed the security light was continually flashing now. I jump started it and drove it home. After shutting it off, I put a meter on it and got 12.6 volts, but I know that can be deceiving. It now won't start again. It clicks once and zilch. I'm thinking bad battery?

    I forgot to mention I tested the battery when cranking and it did go down to 10.7 volts. When the truck was running, I had 14.5 volts which would tell me the alternator is working. No?

    Are these symptoms consistent with a bad battery on a Titan?

The battery is only for getting the car started, when it is started the car runs off the altanator, if you were able to jump it and drive home but could not start is again the the battery might have a dead cell. and if you put a volt meter on it it will still read 12.6, but i bet if you put that same volt meter on the battery and turn the lights on it will go below 10 volts, if it does that the battery is no good.

    SOME TIMES THE BATTERY CAN GIVE A FASLE READING SOME TIMES. WHAT I WOULD DO IS TAKE OFF THE TERMANALSAND MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEAN AND START FROM THERE.

sounds like a dead battery. Disconnect one cable for about 5 min and then re-connect it. That will reset the ECM.

2005 Nissan Titan. When I turn the key all the gauges and radio work but the starter just clicks. If turn it several times it will eventually start.


Go to Autozone,they will check your battery and alternator for free,takes just a minute,sounds like your battery has a dead cell,barely enough to start,also check both cables,may be loose or corroded,but,the best place to get battery is Walmart,get mine there.

Did you ever get an answer for this from the dealer? Mine did the same thing and now it's just sitting in my driveway collecting snow.

Dead battery or starter?


Take the battery out and have it charged up. reinstall it and you should be allright. Your car has discharged it completely, and it will need a recharge to start. The gauge is only measuring voltage, and not the status of charge.

2004 Nissan Titan


do a gauge test. turn off the key and hold the trip meter reset knob. while you are holding the knob, turn the key to ACC position and hold knob for 10 seconds. this will put the cluster into self diag mode. after that happens, let go of the knob and just push it slowly / repeadly and observe the cluster assy. It should be changing and all kinds of stuff should be happening. Don't be scared, you can get out of the self diag mode simply by turning the key off again. Test gauges since those are part of the CAN cyctem also. If NG that you may need a new cluster assy.

Titan will not start


I think that you have a harness problem. Check the negative batt. cable to see if its tight on the engine. Clean any corrosion. I would check all the grounds in the engine compartment. Very common, for those to corrode and cause problems. There are whole bunch of those in the engine area. There is one under the battery tray also. Check the grounds under the windshield washer bottle. those also corrode and mess up your CAN system in the truck , resulting in no start condition. If you are 100% sure that your battery is good, than check all ground wires.
