Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
This issue is due to the steering lock control unit. I am sure your steering wheel is not locked correct?
To get the car to start if the steering wheel is not locked, I use a small hammer and tap the steering lock control unit while stepping on the brake pedal and hitting the start button. See this video to locate the control unit so you can start the car.
Do you have any more questions on this? Do you want me to send you the phone call request?
I sent you the request. Please do not enter any personal information in the question. Once you accept the request you can enter you private information in a private box.
There is a additional charge for personal contact to be made.
If you do not wish for any other additional charges, I am sure the information and the video I provided will help you to get the car started. But to keep this issue from happening again, the steering lock control unit will need to be replaced.
If you watch the You Tube video I supplied it shows it's location so you can tap at it with a small hammer.
It is located on the steering column under the drivers side dash area.
That link is a image of its location
If you can use two hands and with force turn the wheel, then its not locked.
You will feel it if it's locked and this issue is very common on 09 models. They had a warranty extension for 6 years on this part. But this warranty extension is expired now.

You don't have to, but it does make it easier to start if you remove that lower drivers side dash cover.
