Stranded. Light flashing on dash indicates vehicle

Customer Question

Stranded. Light flashing on dash indicates vehicle immobilizer. 2012 Altima. Can I do something to get it started again?
JA: Have you checked the dashboard control switch? Have you checked the fuses?
Customer: No. It is keyless start. Where would the dash control switch and fuse be located? I will have to drive back to the parking lot where I left the car.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Would like to just get rolling again so I would attempt to fix it.
JA: Is there anything else the Nissan Mechanic should be aware of about your Nissan?
Customer: It just rolled to 90k miles.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Nissan Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hey there, thanks for the question.

The flashing immobilizer light is normal, when the light comes on solid then its a concern.

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

I need to know exactly what happens when it does not start.

Does it make a fast clikcing sound? a single click? or does it make no noise at all?

does the ignition switch to ACC/ON but not crank or does it stay on LOCK?

Do you notice anything on the gauge cluster led? like a symbol that says "no key" or "insert key" or "press brake"

Let me know please.
