New car with battery problems

Post by probyan » Wed Apr 17, 2019 5:17 pm

My new car, just 7 weeks old with 530 miles on the clock went crazy this morning. All kinds of messages flashing like key not detected, incorrect key code and stop/start error. Connect unit wouldn’t connect,.electric seats wouldn’t operate.
Called RAC who said battery was totally flat (it seemed fine yesterday afternoon). Ran diagnostics and said he could only get the charge up to 49% and that it was showing a drain of 3.49 volts and should be 0.5 volts.
Said he couldn’t get it show replacement needed so he couldn’t replace it.
Marked up his report that he told me to take into the dealer for further testing as he wasn’t happy with it.
Rang my local dealer and after going through the options ended up with a totally uninterested person in London! No appointment available until 30th so fingers crossed till then.
Have had 3 Qashqais for the last 9 years all of which have been faultless and never have l had to speak to someone on London to get service.
Not impressed.

Will have a look what the battery is tomorrow. I know it’s not one of the notoriously bad ones beginning with F.
Dealer is the Oldham branch of Nissan Westway and I’v always found them very good when you speak to them face to face. It annoys me that apparently you now can’t speak to them by phone if you choose the Service option from the menu.

Ur referring to Fiamm, yes I had one of those replaced on my previous QQ. The latest one is a Varta.

My battery is also a Flamm.
32000 miles and 2 years of trouble free motoring - they aren't all duff, although the evidence suggests that most are pretty poor

The battery is a Varta branded Renault Nissan.
I also traded in my previous Qashqai with a 3 year old Flaam!
