Hello Scott,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Is the engine turning over fast or slow or not at all.

The Engine is turning over as normal - this is the second time this has happened - and with a brand new battery.

No Problem .

If you can get it started with a push start then you may just have a problem with the glow plug system .
So many things can be at fault ,but wish you a great day and all the best and that this does not turn out to expensive , remember you may find parts direct from Nissan a lot cheaper as this is in fact a rebadged Nissan .

Having the Glow plugs checked as i type - should be fine and dandy
