There are fuses, fusible links, etc., that branch out to all the systems of the car. It could be a bad or dirty Ground somewhere. It could be as simple as dirty battery cables and battery posts. Cables must be removed from the battery and cleaned with a cable/post cleaner or sand paper which is not the best way to clean except in an emergency. Battery posts must be shiny too. Main harnesses could be intermittent also. You need a dealer that knows how to trouble shoot electrical systems - it's that simple. Call Ron Ananian from The Car Doctor... he's very smart and knows his stuff! http://wor710.com/pages/11622208.php

I am having this same issue with my 2010 Murano. The third time in only two months that the battery will drain entirely for no apparent reason. I replaced the battery the first time, second time took it into the dealer who could not find any issue, and now for the third time it will not take a jump and it is currently charging via a plug in charger.
the only recommendations on repair I have gleaned from various forums having this same issue is to clean and tighten (i mean really tighten) the battery cables. However, we did that and still the problem persists.
I have contacted Nissan corporate and will pursue the lemon law, as it seems as though they refuse to address this issue that many of us are facing.
if any of you have rectified this issue with corporate, please contact me! thank you.
#679 of 686 Repeated dead Battery
Jul 11, 2012 (11:37 am)
Has anyone been able to rectify the dead battery issue that seems to be fairly prevalent with Muranos?
This is the third time in 45 days that my battery has drained completely overnight for no reason (no lights/radio, etc. left on).
The first time I replaced the battery, the second time two weeks later I had to charge it with an electric battery charger for five hours, now the third time about five weeks later it will not jump or accept a charge.
I took it to my Nissan Dealer who checked it up and down who said he can find nothing wrong with it. If anyone has had success dealing with this issue please contact me. thank you

I am having the same problem. So Nissan dealer told me it is the on board computer. It is getting replaced and after I get the car back I will see if it fixes the problem. I came back from vacation the car was dead as dead. Got it jumped and it lasted 1 day. Next day dead again. Took it to dealer and that is when they said it was the computer. What it is the computer is triggering the remote start when you press the lock button twice. But the car is not starting it is just draining all the power to kill the power. This is a widespread problem with this vehicle. As soon as it is fixed I am ridding myself of the car and thus Nissan. I have owned 11 Nissans but enough is enough. I dont care anymore. I have a Honda Pilot and have no problems both are 09 loaded out but Nissan is junk. I read all the posts about dead batteries and Nissan does nothing. What the real problem is that this was the 1st yr in the new redesign. That is the problem. I am done.

Bad battery. You need to perform: Load test & cell test of each cell with a hydrometer.

My experience tells me the Nissan dealers are ignorant, stupid & untrained. This comes with dealing with numerous issues with 3 dealers in Bergen Cty. NJ. They don't understand automotive basics and are very good at lieing to your face point blank. Being an X auto tech. for 17 years I know when I am being told the truth and not. What really pisses me off is when I have a dead battery and they tell me they don't have to honor the factory warranty. The NISSAN sign on his property doesn't mean they are an authorized dealer I am told - it's just a sign. I had to replace the battery myself and then fight NISSAN in Canada for almost 6 months to get my money back. Lie after lie and phone calls I never received to resolve the issue. NEVER EVER will I drive another Nissan again the rest of my life.

Question: This is my first Nissan that I bought. I included the extended warranty on the car. I bought the car a good distance from my home. We have kept up with maintenance on the car, however, we did not save the receipts for oil bought. I now have a problem with my Murano 2010, 28,000 miles, with white smoke when starting my car. I took it to the dealer and provided him with my service record of when we changed the oil. Because there was sludge in the oil, they want receipts for the oil purchased. We have only ever used what was stated in the manuel. We were never told to save receipts for such things as oil, window washer fluid, air filters, etc. Now Nissan doesn't want to honor the warranty. The dealership won't even diagnosis what's wrong with the car. Where is it stated that receipts must be kept for 'normal' supplies for your car?

Same problem with my 2009 Murano. The battery just dies. I had the battery replaced two month ago and the problem persists. It only happens once in a while. Each time I take it to the dealer there is nothing wrong, they say. The last time I had the vehicle towed to the dealer after one of these events. I'm out of warranty, Nissan failed me. Got to get rid of the vehicle.
