Hi all, Just wondered if anyone knew off, or if this has happened to anyone. I went out for a drive over the Derbyshire dales today I started the car as normal and all was fine, we drove for about an hour then pulled in for a coffee and a sandwich, then tried to start the car and nothing, a total flat battery! So the car is 20 months old with 9000 miles. I've just spent 3 weeks driving on holiday with no short journeys, in fact it's last trip was 5 days ago 300 miles up the motorway and the battery was fine. So the R.A.C. man came out and gave me a jump start then went through all the checks and could find nothing wrong, no power drain and no faults at all, and said he'd never come across this before. After the car had been ticking over for about 10 mins the battery was fully charged so we drove home with no problems. Now whether this is relevant while on holiday I lifted the bonnet to check the fluids and saw the both electrical connectors to thr radiator fans were disconnected, so I reconnected them. Now I've only had the car for 3 months so I guess they've not been connected since I got it. Lucky I've not done any short journeys in hot weather as it could have boiled! I'll be having a word with the Nissan dealer in the morning. Look forward to any replies.

Hello akr123,

There is nothing more annoying than these unexplained faults. :oops: Truck Driver is right if the fans are at fault then following his advice you should see them operating. Although on my T30 only one fan runs with the air con (many other Members report both fans running with the air con), and there have been examples of radiator fan faults reported on the Forum. Again right advice to be back to Nissan whilst you have some warranty, also check any other after market "add-ons". I hope you get tis sorted soon. :thumbs:

My T30 is now nine years old and still running the original bettery. Last year I fitted this to monitor the battery condition at a glance...

Best wishes, John

Update on battery discharge. First thanks to the members who passed on the information. So I've just been out and started my x trail, and as is normal it started first turn of the key. I then turned on the air con and both fans worked fine.
Additional information from the RAC man yesterday. When he first tested the battery the reading was 10.9 I guess that is amps! after starting and charging he tested for battery drain and that was 0.2 he said that was well within tolerance. So I'll see how we get on and let you know. Again thanks to you all for the information.

A new battery must deliver appr. 13.8 V. If you put it on heavy discharge, it might not fall too low, let's say 12 Volts for min. 10 minutes (on heavy discharge) On a good battery-tester they can check it outside and in :thumbs:

First check is: all lights, aircon and rearwindow-heating on, start and look if the lights dim abnormal. If so; battery on last walk...

We'll it's happened again!!! Just as before. So it's been recovered to the Nissan dealership as requested so I'll be interested to see the outcome. I'll let you all know when the car comes back.

Just picked up my xtrail after battery discharge problems, Having had my car for 6 days they've traced the problem to a bad connection on the altanator "loose connection" So after two RAC call outs and a recovery to the Nissan garage and a week without my car it's all fixed, fingers crossed!
