Is there any warning lights that come up or have been staying on since this ocurred?
Does it start up straight away after its done this?
How does it perform otherwise?
I do know some these have whats termed as ECO mode all but pretty much newer CVT automatic gearbox nissan's have that and this like fuel saving measure they have on them so alot of the normal parameters the car does ie:- with performance etc is reduced to increase MPG..some of them have button down the right hand side of the dash on the drivers side with a ECO on it..if you have fitted to the car then press it and see if the eco warning on the dash goes out..if you have AUTO stop start function.this will cut the engine out at idle or stationary until you press the clutch the engine will start..again you should have button in the same place looks like the word AUTO with a circle arrow..press that to turn off and on auto stop start...having said that even with the use of wipers on the car it shouldnt generally cut out even if its got stop/start function on as it wont allow it to shut down at traffic lights etc if things like wipers are used because there is demand on the battery to work these things...stop/start function doesnt always come in under certain conditions....but if you having to pyshically restart the engine via the ignition button then there could be a fault within the eco mode maybe a software problem..which generally only Nissan would likely need to check on to ensure its working correctly...maybe bring up with the rental firm if the problem continues..
Yeah it could just be if you have turned off ECO mode..then it will be in NORMAL mode so the cutting out or stop/start shouldnt activate at all...If it still does it under use of wipers/headlights etc etc..where there is alot of damand on the charging system or battery then - it certainly would need to be looked into.....Please dont forget to leave a rating for me before you log out..much appreciated..
