So at this point are you able to turn the ignition at all?

Would you like to attempt to replace the ignition tumbler?

I can turn the ignition key and I get power but he does not start

I'm thinking of being mission Tumblr and I'm considering replacing it
Expert:  Jared D replied 6 months ago.

I think the problem is either in the tumbler not allowing the ignition switch to turn to the run position or the switch is bad. The problem is that I can't find a diagram in any of my reference materials that will help walk you through replacing the switch/tumbler.

Come to find out I have a bad starter as well as the problem with the ignition cylinder
Expert:  Jared D replied 6 months ago.

Wow, ok. That's a bummer. The replacement procedure from Nissan consists of: remove two bolts and starter.
