Why won’t my Nissan Titan start in cold weather?

I recently got a Nissan Titan and I’ve found that my truck has trouble starting in the colder months. What causes this problem, and how do I fix it?

If your Nissan Titan won’t start in cold weather, the most likely culprit is your vehicle battery.
Your car battery will drain faster in colder weather, meaning it’s much easier for your vehicle to experience a drained or weak battery. This makes it impossible to start your truck.
You can check your battery visually by looking for it under the hood of your Titan. If your battery is old or corroded, it’s a good idea to have your battery replaced. If you have a pretty new battery in your vehicle, though, it might help to invest in a jumper for your car.
If the issue isn’t your battery, though, you may have a different electrical issue on your hands. In this case, it’s a good idea to take your car to a mechanic to get the problem checked out before your car stops functioning entirely. Otherwise, you might be stuck paying for a tow truck!
