Re: Titan Slow to Turn over - Battery?Starter?Alternator?
Nissan covers bumper to bumper 3yr/36k. The exceptions on that is wear and tear items like brake pads and the battery, and accidents. Pretty sure the starter and alternator both would be covered with that as neither are wear and tear imo. But, it is most likely your battery. Mine died after 1 1/2 yrs and like 16k miles....and I live in sunny San Diego where it doesnt dip below 40deg....they are junk. I would just go get the battery tested at autozone and pick up an Optima. When the batteries start to go out in these trucks, funny things start to happen. When you started the truck after filling up, it had only been turned off momentary so it didnt loose its charge....not to mention it doesnt take as much juice to turn over a warm engine. When you let the truck sit over night and is sluggish on the cold start is usually a sign of the battery not holding a charge.
Bad starter...can have very similar symptoms as a low battery. Get the battery checked first.
Bad alternator... truck would most likely die while running as it would not be providing enough power for a good trickle charge, which in turn kills the battery.
If its not the battery, alternator, or starter that is bad, it would be a parasitic draw. Usually from installing aftermarket sound systems incorrectly or leaving a dome light on or something.
