I had a Nissan battery put in and they cleaned the grounding points and it seems to have worked.
And to make reference to your earlier retort to myself: YOU are clearly not a tech...Please stop giving half-arsed, blind advice to people.When the engine is cold, spin the engine and see if you're getting a strong spark at the plugs. If not, the battery may have some weak cells, so at this point the interstate battery would be the prime suspect.
Thanks SMJ, I appreciate that!Rogoman has been helping people out on this forum for a very, long time...for over 15 years...and I've been a member for a few years, myself. While he may not be a certified Nissan Master Tech, I was, leaving Nissan in 2003 having worked for them for a total of 16-years between 1985-2003 (I left for a couple of years to do other things and went back). There may be a once-in-a-blue-moon moment when some of his advice might need a small correction, but 99.5% of the time his advice is pretty solid and he's definitely an important contributor to this site. He is clearly a very knowledgeable automotive technician by evidence of some of the thousands of replies he has given to other members looking for help for their Nissan problems.
No, thank you! It's hard to keep up with traffic as an Admin on TheNissanPath.com, a Mod on this forum and member at ClubFrontier.org and NissanHelp.com along with the rest of things I have to do in my life. Since I own an R51 Pathfinder and a D22 Frontier, NissanForums has dropped to 3rd on my list of forum priorities. You save me a lot of work!Thanks SMJ, I appreciate that!
I hear you, I have a 2007 Pathfinder and when it gets to below minus 6, (ALBERTA Canada) it simply gives up the Ghost. It will not start, have checked everything known to mankind, all seems to be working properly ,it simply cranks, but no start. When the temperature warms up, she runs perfectly. What good is a vehicle when it is like that, even plugging the vehicle in, does not help!?Ok. Same problem. At 40 degrees it WILL NOT start. 50 degrees it starts EVERY time without fail. in between those 40 and 50 degrees maybe starts, maybe doesn't. This is a 2007 Pathfinder. It has brand new terminals (old ones corroded beyond belief because some idiot put copper terminals on it) and because of the older bad terminals, I put a brand new battery in it last year. All work done by a nissan dealership service dept. ( who could admittedly be just as stupid as a non nissan service dept so....there's always that).
3 weeks ago during a cold snap, I blew a relay. I could HEAR the difference in the cranking as soon as it blew, but at the time didn't know what exactly had changed, just that something had changed. Towed to repairshop and found out it was a relay that was repaired. Now we have a new cold snap and I'm back to where I was, I just try less often and for shorter periods of time to get the thing started.
Anything else it could be, besides battery/starter issues(as these have all be checked and determined not to be the problem)??
What do you mean by "plugging it in"?I hear you, I have a 2007 Pathfinder and when it gets to below minus 6, (ALBERTA Canada) it simply gives up the Ghost.

Plugging it in means warming the engine oil up by connecting to the mains.What do you mean by "plugging it in"?
At the time of not starting, can you hook up to another strong battery with jumper cables to see if it makes a difference?

Have also tried hooking another battery to it as one would do when jump starting it up!
I know!When you take the vehicle to the dealership, it just seems a process of elimination at the owners expense judging by past experiences on the forums that Nissan dealerships are unable to fix the problem!
