Why should I buy a new battery. It’s still under warrantee
The problem is that the FIAMM battery having been charged for about 30 mins or so will hold sufficient charge for about the next 24 hours or more. Sufficient meaning that the RAC or Dealer test tool does not detect a fault/failed condition. The battery won't be changed unless the test tool shows a REPLACE notification to the person using the test tool.

So you have to call the RAC when the car refuses to start. The test tool will then show REPLACE I'd expect..as it did with mine.

The test tool will provide test results and is supplied to NISSAN. It will authorise a free battery replacement in the REPLACE case. The RAC man has the new Varta Battery on board...with him. All takes about an hour.
