For Starting there can be many reasing but most commen are here discuss.
1- Once in a while I am having problems starting my 2005 Nissan Altima. When the problem happens I get in the car and nothing will turn on. To get the car to start I have to open up the hood and pull on the battery cable that has fuses attached to it. This doesnt happen every day.
2- I have a 2007 Nissan Altima and it wont start all of a sudden. I think its the battery, but shouldn't the battery last longer I have had the car band new since June 2007.
3- There is a emergency key slot on the left side of the steering wheel. Insert key fob into that slot and push the start button. It should start. If it starts then I would see your local dealer to have the key fob checked out.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks.
4- I only have one key with me - I will have to get a ride back to my car to check if lights are bright. I will not be able to test other key as it is my spare at my home 1 hour from where I was dropped off. Do you think the battery (?) in the key is low or unable to turn ignition over?
5- An other Issue.
I'm having the same issue with my 08 Altima w/43,000 miles on it. Before reading this thread I have twice before took it to the dealer and they were not able to duplicate the problem because the issue is intermittent. The technician thought maybe it was the computer module that's looks at the brakes system to start the car, a safety feature but wanted $400 to test and replace it.
6- The last Issue that i face
I have a 2005 Altima 2.5S. the most commn car in Middel East, I've had the car for 2 years and not had any problems. However for the last 2 days, its not starting properly on the first try. In some cases I have to let the car sit for 40 minutes before getting it to start up. The battery is brand new. The engine cranks over without any hesitation.
I've tried starting holding the peddle down 2/3 down (as suggested on some forums) - no luck
I've removed the battery terminal (in hopes it resets something) - no luck.
I connected an ODB II scanner and I get "Camshaft Sensor - Malfunction on Circuit 1" (Cen-Tech error code P0340)
I see there is a recall to reprogram the ECM - would this fix the problem. Or should I change the sensor? The total cast is $125 + Laber charge maybe $50.
