Hello, I have a 2007 Nissan Murano. This problem has been ongoing for close to a year. I really need your expertise on helping determine what could be the issue.
Last year 2017, I took my daughter to a doc appt, when I got back to the car it would not start. I called road side assistance and they came to jump the car, but it would not take. My husband had to come with a new battery. Battery replaced and I started driving it fine until all of a sudden 1 week later, the car started over heating. I took the car the shop and got that repaired and maybe 2 weeks after I got the car back, the car stalled while driving. I was at a light the car turned off and w/in 3 seconds the car turned back on. A few days later, I was driving and I could feel my car losing acceleration and eventually I was able to pull over and my car died. My husband came back to the car found that the corrosion around the battery and that some of the connectors were rusted and corroded through. He replaced those parts and I was back on the road and then had also bought a battery cage or holder. So that the battery would be secured and not jump around.
Now the oddest thing is happening. When driving the car, it drives fine, nothing going on while I drive, except for when I park my car and turn it off, my car dies.
-___- it is so odd. I only drive the car when I go to work so usually I leave it and when I come back it starts up fine. What could possibly be happening? I am at my wits end, I love my car dearly but I am ready to turn it in.
We have taken it to find out what codes we can get and it comes back with nothing......
Hoping someone has had any experience with similar issues. HELP!!

thank you in advance.

You park your car, turn it off, and it dies? Help me out. Cars die when you turn them off. Maybe rephrasing would help.

I park the car, it turns off (like a regular car) and the car does not turn back on, if I go to turn the ignition. The locks dont work, I am unable to lock the doors (which is how I know this is happening since I lock the door using the door handle) I end up having to lock the door manually.

How long until your car is working again after you lock manually? Is that what you’re saying? It will sometime later start working or what?

One thing to check is both ends of the battery cables. People tend to check the ends connected at the battery and forget that each cable has another connection point. Corrosion or a loose bolt at the anchor end can create problems.
