I have a problem, the car does not want to start, the key light is on all the time, and the theft light it blinks. I can use the
Key to open the doors and trunk. I can’t scan it with a computer. I though it was going to be the steering column lock, like
Older models. My question is causing the problem? Sometimes in a blue moon it starts

what color is the key light

It drove fine, no key light on. Right now as soon as I press the start button, the key light comes on
And when I press the second time all the lights come on. And no start

The only clicking a heard is under the dash, when the cluster light ups

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

I will attempt to see if I can assist you with your issue. You mentioned that you can get the ignition to come on, but the car won't start. Have you been able to scan the vehicle for codes to see if you have any stored?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The scanner, can't read it

It can not communicate with the computer to check for codes when the ignition is turned on?
