That is a trick to get the car to start. You are boarder line of this being under warranty. There is a 6 year unlimited mileage warranty on this issue. If you give me your vin number I can check to see if the warranty is still available for the steering lock control unit for you.
Other wise, if not, the part is around 350 and 2 hours to install.
Let me know.
Thanks Jay!

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!
