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

Do you have a Yellow Key light on?

when i try to press the start button

If you are getting a Yellow key light, and the ignition will not turn on, that is normally due to a bad steering lock control unit.

How handy are you?

I am an auto electrian ,the steering lock module is that part under the steering that locks the steering ?if i make an new one does it need a programming ?

If you replace it, it does not need to be programmed.

Can i check something to be sure that is the steering lock module?
I have a video where if you tap on the steering lock control module with a hammer and holding foot on brake while pushing the start button, it can bump the steering lock control unit to operate and the car would start

How can i see the video ?

Nissan just released a recall for this issue. I don't know if your car is a part of it. I know it is mainly for Altima's and Maxima's. But you are welcome to call them and talk to them and see if they will cover this for you. Their number is *****
