Hi, my name is ***** ***** there is no battery power, then the ignition will NOT turn in the cylinder, have you tried charging the battery?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
since I cannot turn my ignition to the lock position to turn everything off, the lights on the panel inside blink and it makes a strange sound.
Nissan Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 4 months ago

that is caused by low voltage, what is the voltage at the battery?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The vehicle did not turn to the lock position yesterday while the battery was fully charged.
Nissan Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 4 months ago

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!
