Hiya

You would initially need a full diagnostic code read to establish what code(s) are present.  Once you have the codes a diagnostic path can be established.

Stop/Start systems will not work if there are any issues with the Engine Management System and or the Vehicle Battery.  Is the battery you have fitted a genuine Nissan Battery.  It must be the correct one or the ECM will notice an incorrect charging operation.

Hiya

Even though the battery is a stop start battery it must still have the same rating as the genuine Nissan Battery.
