My key fob will unlock my car if I press the buttons on it…

Customer Question
My key fob will...

My key fob will unlock my car if I press the buttons on it but I can't start my car (push to start)

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

How do I do that?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2015 Sentra

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sentra yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am not fixing it or anything, I just tried to turn on my car to go home and it isn't working. I haven't tried anything yet

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of

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!
