Car dead again - could it be a 'NATS security warning light'

Post by Ollie75 » Wed Feb 10, 2021 9:45 pm

Hi, I have a 2018 (68) Quasqai teckna + with a manual gearbox and a 1.6 petrol engine. After recently having problems with the battery where it went into Nissan and they had issues with software my car is dead again about 4 weeks later. Last time when the car wouldn't start I did get lots of clicking but the battery was so dead that the recovery guy had troubles starting it. Nissan said it was now all fine. Today I got into the car having used it two days ago and there is nothing. The remote will open the door but when I try to start it all I get is a red light which, looking at the handbook, may be a NATS security warning light. Anyone had this before and could this still be linked to the battery? The problem is that I haven't got time until the weekend to get a recovery guy to come out so I have had to borrow a car. The car is still under warranty but once the showrooms are open I am getting rid and waving goodbye to Nissan. Any thoughts gratefully received but please don't get too technical as I haven't a clue! Thanks

The failing Battery issue is/was common. Easy fix and finished right there. After that its about battery charging related to use...too many short journeys for instance.

What software issues were they dealing with?
