I have a 97 Nissan Altima that I use as a work car. Runs great till I shut it off after work the other day and it wouldn't turn over after that. Battery is good over 12.5 volts. Dash lights come on but doesn't turn over. Can you give me a direction. Thanks

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!
