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

When you try to start the car, what is it doing? If you turn the head lights on, do they come on?

the only thing that is obviously not working but worked when I parked last night is the horn doesn't sound when I push the key fob lock button. Door locks, but no honk
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 8 months ago

Well the horn sounding when you lock the car can get turned on and off, by holding the lock and Unlock button till the lights flash.. So you can try that.

Is the steering wheel locked? If you press the Brake pedal does the brake lights come on? Did you try inserting the remote into the remote slot?

You could be dealing with a dead battery. Something may have been left on that drained the battery.

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!
