Question about 2005 Nissan Frontier
Replace battery if it doesn't hold charge. make sure, that its not getting drained by something beeing on. You can do a fast test. remove negative batery terminal and run a test light between the negative cable and battery post. see if test light comes on. If it does, you have a draw on the system thats draining the battery. Then you will need an DVOM /digital volt meter and check how many amps you are drawing out of the battery. But its probably just a dead battery. Replace it. Good luck.

It could be a bad battery, or it could be a bad alternator, ground wire, dirty terminals, etc.
You need to test the components.
Charge the battery.
Then put a voltmeter across it.
It should read 12.5 volts about.
When you crank it, it should drop to about 10.
If it drops lower, the batter or starter is likely bad.
If it does not drop to 10, then the starter or terminals are bad,
If you stop cranking, the battery should come back up.
If it does not, it is bad.
Once started, then you should see over 13.5 when reved up.
If not, the alternator or terminals are bad.
