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

Is it more like a rapid clicking noise when you try to start it?

Not really. It sound like its crank to start but then stops
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you feel the engine is not turning over long enough to start?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No it usually starts instantly. So I don't think that is the problem
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Try this.. Press the gas pedal all the way, and press and hold the start button. The engine will continuely turn over as long as you are holding the start button. Try holding it for about 10 seconds and see if the engine wants to start.. If it starts to start, release the throttle and see if it will start.

Give that a try and let me know how you make out

That didn't work. I notice that the number under my miles is now 0. And my gas mile is just dash even though I got a full tank 4 days ago
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sorry I was at work so I couldn't do it
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
my brake pedal is also hard to press and it's not normally like that
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

It is normal for the pedal to get hard after pressed a couple times when the car is off.

What does the gas gauge read when the key is in the ON position?

The mile till empty has a bunch of dashes. The Meter is a little under a full tank
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you recall having a Service Engine Soon light on when it was last running?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It makes a clicking sound now
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

AHH,, That sound like a weak battery. Did you try jump starting the car?
