Customer Question

I bought 02 altima it's been sitting for a couple months, my brother told me it just shut down had it towed. I changed the cam sensor battery was dead so I bought a new one, now nothing going works right. The wipers turn on when I hit the defrost button and no mileage shows
JA: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Nissan Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm baffled never ran into a problem like this.
JA: Is there anything else the Nissan Mechanic should be aware of about your Nissan?
Customer: Nope just changed the cam sensor and still doesn't run.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Nissan Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.
