2019 armada platinum , excellent vehicle ! I always kept my headlights on auto , went to car wash , the switch got moved to all the way up, I will assume non auto and parking lights. Didn’t realize it. Would this drain the battery to dead ? Went to start it in am . Nothing. Jumped it . Clicked right over. Next question. After running dead. And a jump. Does battery return to its previous condition ? Or is it compromised in life span ? With the extreme cold in the northeast coming ? Invest in a new one or am I on solid ground ?

I think you'll be OK. The battery is new enough that a discharging that low (probably) isn't going to hurt your battery's performance for a long time.

you will want to fully charge the battery. if you have access to a charger, id recommend fully charging it. The charging system on the nissan only does "trickle" charging (its much more a complicated response but this is the TL;DR version) and if you only have short drives the battery may not fully get back to 100.

Do you have a battery charger where you can select the charge amps?
I would "slow" or "trickle" charge it at 2 or 6 amps. Will take several hours to bring up to full charge.

Short driving trips don't do a whole lot to charge a drained battery. It is always good to have a charger on hand, especially for us in the colder states. It is inexpensive insurance.

Edit: Marctronixx - Ha! We typed that at the same time. Great minds think alike. :)

You can take it to a local auto supply store where they will usually test it for free. As long as there are no dead cells, you should be ok.

Thanks guys , it went dead again . Put a jump box on it , drove it to dealer. They were cool about it, problem was ECM needed re program . They tested battery and said it was fine, but put a new one in under warranty. Thanks for the help .
I'm having the same problem with my 2019 Nissan Armada. Has happened four or five times now. My dealership won't do anything but jump it because they say the battery is testing good. Could send me the details on the ECM re-program, or the number to your dealerhsip service that did it? The service people at my dealership don't seem to know anything about this and haven't been any help.

Here's the TSB for it. You can download the PDF and take it to the dealer...

Thank you. Called my dealership and they were now aware of the Service Bulletin. Got it fixed yesterday. To me, this is a major recall and I wonder why they don't notify buyers. But I'm sure they have their reasons. Thanks again.

Recalls and Technical Service Bulletins are different things. Don't get one confused with the other.

A TSB is a heads-up to a dealer that if a customer comes in indicating a specific issue, this is how you fix it. Recalls are safety related.

Also, recalls are done at no charge to the customer. A TSB is only free if the action is covered by warranty.
