You need to go to a parts house and have them read the codes. Most do this at no charge. A blinking service engine light indicates that a problem exists that can cause engine damage. For example, if a spark plug is miss firing it could damage the catalytic converter. The steady light indicates that a code has been recorded.

Might be the A/C head unit in there also after checking for fuses & relays .

Pull the radio and check the antenna jack. It may be unplugged.

Try starting it in neutral instead or park...It may be your neutral start switch is bad in the park position. Otherwise, it sounds like a starter relay is not working.

i think replacing the sensor is in order. i know all car makes have "recalibration updates" for the ecm and should be done, but have rarely fixed vehicles on just that alone. and your symptoms suggest the sensor could be intermittently bad

in order for the shift lock solenoid to release a stop lamp signal must be received. the 2 most common causes of an intermittent inop. shift lock solenoid would be (1) intermittently the stop lamps do not work (stop lamp switch, etc.) or (2) intermittently the shift lock solenoid receives power but does not operate (bad solenoid). There are certainly other possible causes but I'd begin by confirming the stop lamps turn on when the shift lock does not release. Hope this helps

I have the same problem in my car. I too have a 2005 Nissan Altima. Mine seems to only happen when I go on long trips. (about an hour/hour and a half) When this happens, my sevice engine soon light will come on and if I turn off my car, I have to give it gas to turn back on. It seems after it has had a chance to cool off it is back to normal again and in a couple of days the engine light goes off. There was a recall in '07 about the crankshaft that states: IF THE INTERRUPTION IN THE SIGNAL FROM THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR IS SO BRIEF THAT THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE (ECM) LOGIC DOES NOT HAVE TIME TO DIAGNOSE THE CONDITION, THE ENGINE MAY STOP RUNNING WITHOUT WARNING WHILE THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN AT A LOW SPEED INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH. That may be looking into. I am going to do that in the next couple of weeks and ask them their opinion on why my car does what it is. I have looked and thought also it may be my feul pump. I will try to keep you posted.

Look for a sticker on/near the drivers door or under the engine compartment hood.

obviously not a mechanic
with bad sensors you would have starting and noticeable engine running problems
have the fault codes read by an accredited service center and check the EVAP system

2005 Nissan... | Answered on Feb 17, 2018

could indicate dirty transmission oil
bad harness connections or faulty reverse servo/ solenoids needing heat to operate properly
run the fault codes to see if any sensor shows up

I saw two fuse boxes, one appears to be close to battery and interior fuse box.
As far as the interior fuse box, I'd look along lower edge of dash. Sometimes the fuse is located on the end of dash, have to open door to see it.
Do you want a wiring diagram for brake lites?

There could be a whole lot of reasons.
Here are some, not in order of "what is most likely".
1) Your electrical "cooling-fan" circuit could be at fault.
This is the circuit that includes the radiator cooling fan, the engine block sensor, the electrical relay, and the wiring.
Any fault here will cause overheating.
2) Your water pump or drive belt could be at fault.
3) Your engine could have an air bubble that need to be cleared.
4) Although quite rare, check to be sure the lower radiator hose in not collapsing when the engine is revved ( such as when going down the road at 40-70 MPH)
Test bt feeling of it to be sure it is not "soft".
God bless your efforts.

Yes, there should be a timing mechanism that shuts the defroster off after a certain time. Are you sure you are giving it enough time? Usually about 10 or 15 minutes when most defrosters turn off automatically. Try contacting a dealer service or tech rep about the system- how long it should stay on, how to diagnose, where such parts are located, etc.
