Customer Question
I went to leave...

I went to leave work today for lunch and it almost didn't start. It is a push button start. There is also an emblem of a key on the dash. I have replaced the batteries in both key fobs within the last year.

Mechanic's Assistant: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Nissan Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Nothing. It finally started. Just wondering if it is going to start when I leave work. I believe it has something to do with the key fob.

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!
