What's up everyone. I'm new here and not sure ehere to post about my battery issues. I have a nissan titan 2008 and live in south florida. Every year once the weather gets down to about 77 degrees my car won't start at all. There's barely any corrosion and i already checked all the fluids. I always have to get the battery exchanged.The fluids inside the battery are okay. It's a 700ca and the brand is advanced auto. Any ideas on how to fix this annoying problem?

Get a better battery :eek_surprise:

No, but seriously, if your alternator checks out, and the battery terminal connections are clean, I would suspect the batteries just aren't holding up for you.

I've used Interstate batteries for many years and they have been excellent in terms of reliability. I started using Interstate mostly because they have models for vintage BMWs and Mercedes, and being a BMW CCA'er for many years... I've had plenty of opportunities to replace batteries.

If Advance Auto is replacing for free, that's one thing... if they are costing you anything, consider a brand switch.

Good luck!

I had issues every 1.5 years like clockwork with my batteries dying until I moved to a dry cell. Soon as I did that I haven't changed it (been 3 years).

Get your alternator output checked. Two things can kill the bat....a bad diode or a bad regulator that overcharges/undercharges. The bad diode will kill the battery sooner than the regulator, but in any event, the problem is duplicating itself which means the source is elsewhere from the battery.

Something is going on. I have the OEM battery still in my 2010 and it started like a champ this morning in a balmy 19 degrees. Does is just click, or does it try to turn over? When you turn the key, do the dash lights all go out? Maybe put a volt meter on the battery and when you turn the key, see what your voltage drops to. If it drops below 11.5 volts or so when cranking then it's definitely the battery either being defective or not charged. Also, like others said, check the voltage when your truck is running, it should be around 14 volts or so. Anything less and it's not charging enough and much more than 14.7 and you're probably frying the battery. Good luck and post what you find please.

When you say "barely any corrosion" that makes me pause..... Even a small amount of corrosion can cause starting issues with this vehicle.
