Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Your finger slipping off the start button won't cause this. Did you have all electrical power before this happened?

I did

Thank you.. Then your issue is most likely simply a battery connection issue. This is what I normally do. I will turn the head light switch ON , then open the hood. I will loosen the Negative battery terminal and turn it right to left. At any point the Head Lights come on while doing that, I will then Tighten it back down in a slightly different position. Then that should allow the car to start. If moving the negative battery terminal doesn't do anything, then I would try the Positive Terminal. But this is 100% a Battery or connection issue..

Hey sorry for the delay. So it looks like the neutral cable was completely off, but when I tried to put it back on, I touched the edge of a nut and there were some sparks. All good to try again?

Yeah... Make sure you tighten it up and see if it starts...

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
