Customer Question
My 2012 altima will...

My 2012 altima will not start. The brake pedal seems pushed all the way in, but I cannot get it to depress

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Nissan. The Nissan Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

The foot brake pedal next to the accelerator seems to be pushed all the way in. A hard press wont make it move

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Best case scenario yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Nissan Mechanic should be aware of about your Nissan?

Mechanic's Assistant: What else should I tell the Nissan Mechanic?

Thats all

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!
