2010 Nissan won’t start...

2010 Nissan won’t start, think it’s the steering lock, stuck at the doctors office. Any easy fix?

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

Battery connection looks fine. Btw it’s a 370z

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 370Z yourself? What have you tried so far?

Drove to the doctors office fine, came out after and car won’t start

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

Nope, thanks

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!

cjazLexington, KY

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
