Customer Question
I bought 02 altima...

I bought 02 altima it's been sitting for a couple months, my brother told me it just shut down had it towed. I changed the cam sensor battery was dead so I bought a new one, now nothing going works right. The wipers turn on when I hit the defrost button and no mileage shows

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?

I'm baffled never ran into a problem like this.

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

Nope just changed the cam sensor and still doesn't run.

Did you have a code for a cam sensor and that is why you replaced it?

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!
