Customer Question
Got home from one...

Got home from one job changed for second job. That quick the car will not start. Was running fine all day. No issues.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Battery is fine. Connections are good.

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

1997. Nissan max.

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

Tried putting it in N then back in park. Nothing. No lights, no sound at all. When I open the door the security light does a weird flashing strobe thing.

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

Not at this time.

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!
