Hiya

The first port of call would be a full diagnostic code read to determine what code(s) if any are present.  From there a diagnostic path can be established.

A battery test should also be carried out using appropriate equipment such as that supplied by MidiTronics.

If the vehicle is failing to continue to run you are probably looking at either a fuelling issue or an immobiliser issue however without the correct diagnostic information it is impossible to be more precise than that.

Thanks I'll try and get a read see what comes up

Hiya

No problem.  If you do manage to get that completed and need further help I may only be able to offer you limited help as I can't access Nissan Asia Technical Websites.  No information on Elgrand is available via Nissan Europe B2B as it was never designed for the European Market.
