My Nissan Altima 13 is not turning on, I'm stuck at a gas

Customer Question

Hi my Nissan Altima 13 is not turning on
JA: What year is your Altima?
Customer: I'm stuck at a gas station
JA: How has your mileage been lately? Has the car been starting normally?
Customer: 2013
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes I am hoping to fix it myself... I tried pressing the start button twice and using the key in the door thinking that would reset it... When I press the start button all the lights and everything turns on but when I press my foot on the brake it sounds like it wants to start then stops
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: That's about it
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Nissan Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
