Question about 2009 Nissan Murano

1 Answer

My 2009 Murano won't start in cold weather after sitting for more then 10 hrs. It attempts to turn over. Started once roadside assistance boosted it. Took it to dealer said there is nothing wrong with it but happened again 2 days later.

    It turns over fast, sounds like it is trying to start. It is one of those
    push button starts on the dash. So after so many attempts it times
    out and you have to reattempt. The dealer claims the battery is fine,
    no service light on the dash or anything. The only way I got it started
    today was one foot on the brake to engage to push button start and the
    other foot with the gas pedal to the floor as the dealership told me to
    do if it happened again. They said if it happened again they would change
    the fuel pump? Thanks.

Does the starter turn the engine over fast, slow ?
Is it dead after it cranks over a few times ?
I would say you have a bad connection, either positive or negative cable.
Something is loose.
If the battery is fine and has plenty of power to turn the engine over , that is one thing, but if it barely cranks it over and then looses power that is something different.
It sounds to me like there is some kind of intermittent problem with the alternator
You should have a check engine light coming on in your dash.
With this new of vehicle I would tell the dealer to keep the vehicle until they get it fixed and give you a new vehicle to drive until they figure it out.
Please let me know what happens.

2002 explorer wont start

You have the symptoms of a defective starter solenoid, the large contacts inside the starter solenoid get eroded over time and finally start to not make connection, that is the click and the no start, in most cases you can get it started by repeated attempts, but in the end it will strand you. The starter solenoid can be rebuilt for about $10 and an hour of your time to remove the starter from the truck.

Car battery dying

The light is telling you the battery is low on charge. What you need to do is check the alternator and see if it is putting out the correct amperage. If you go to Auto zone they can check this for you and I believe it is free. Another test you could do is start the car and pull the positive cable from the battery and if the car dies then you have a charging problem and most likely is the alternator. A couple things about the battery itself. Make sure the connections are clean and tight. If the alternator is good then maybe the battery is not taking the charge from the alternator.

My car won't start or jump because windchill is -40F; will it start when it gets warmer?

It sounds very much like a new battery to me. Batteries suffer in extremely cold weather and cells fail. Jump starting will divert all the power to the bad cells and so you will get nothing to the starter.. Have a load test done on the battery first but be prepared for a new one

My 1988 Jeep won't start when I crank over the engine. It will turn the motor over a few times then I lose battery power. With a cold start it sometimes will start on first attempt but it has gott

it sounds like the starter is bad but first run a pair of jumper cables from the battery to the starter and the other jumper on the ground side just to make sure you don't have a bad cable larger parts stores can test it off the car if you bring it to them

During cold weather car will start and die as if not getting gas. Once started all is good.

Try letting the key sit forward for a few seconds, maybe 10-20. Allow the fuel pump to catch up. Just a thought

Hi, I have a Nissan Altima 95. Had a starter problem. I live in colder climate region of Alberta, canada. I purchased a used starter from a parts seller in Texas. I replaced the starter in July of 2009....

Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings

I have a 1999 Grand Caravan with start up problems

if you dont already I would highly recommend pluging it in a night if it has a block heater it helps to keep the block warmer and this will keep most moister from regular use from freezing in the electrical connections under the hood also try using a fuel anti freeze if there is the slightest bit of moister in the lines it will cause a rough start and it takes 35seconds of above idle running for the vehicles fuel injection programing to reset it self and run smoothly,also have the battery checked it could just have a weak moment until the alternator kicks in to recharge it from the start-up so I would recommend having the battery check cold so it hasn't had the boost from the alternator yet.hope this helps.
