HI. I read your problem.
Let me ask you,
The sensor that you are installed are from the dealer or aftermarket?
Because the crank sensor on a 02 to 06. altimas where defectives. or damaged to fast.
Is why NIssan company Made a complety diferent new sensor.
Trying to resolve this problem.
If you haven't get from the dealer, I recomment get one from them. When you see the connector on inverter position don't worry it will fit.
But if you install from the dealer. I recoment check the engine for high vibration.
Check the crankshaft for end play.
And check the wires from the sensor for short, or burned shield.

OK> I hope this work for you..
I have changed few of them..

SOURCE: Problem wtih starting car

The second switch is a relay.  Once you depress the brake pedal it closes the circuit and allow power to flow the starter so that when you push the start button it turns and starts your engine.  The contacts in relays after a while will start to ware out or start to pit just like points in the older cars and it could not make contact to close the loop with in the circuit which will result not starting.

Try this, Since you are applying the hand brake. Manually pull up on the emergency pedal and see if the light goes out. If this does work then you could have one of several problems. but, I am thinking that you might be able to adjust the brake tensioner if this car has one.

SOURCE: brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima

Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.

The brake switch in my 95 nissan altima get hot after several stop and go and went bad. I changed it, and does the same. I have to start the engine in neutral because of that problem. can you h

You probably have a shorted Brake pedal switch under the dash. This is part of the interlock system which is suppose to stop you from starting the car without your foot on the brake.

The switch should be on the brake pedal lever. It is common for feet to hit it and crack, break, or move it out of position. You need to replace and adjust thisimportant part.

I hope my solution is helpful. Often the rear brake lights do not light.

Altima loss of clutch on turns

Well, I know nothing specific about your car in particular but ill try to work up an idea. Some systems incorporate the clutch and the brakes using the same fluid. Do you notice anything similar with your brakes?

My 2008 Nissan altima will not start sometimes usually it happens when you put your foot on brake before you start it and the brake pedal won't release back does anyone know what the problem is

do the brake lights come on when you press the brake? If not the brake switch is bad. If they do, check your brake fluid. Ive heard of these Altimas having bad master brake cylinders. If your brakes(pads) are good and your fluid is really low, this may be your culprit. Should be covered under warranty.Let me know how you make out.

Problem wtih starting car

I had the same issue. It turned out that the break pedal switch was broken. The engine start push button is connected to a second break pedal switch that senses when you push it. That switch is independent from your main break pedal switch that turns on the brake lights of the car.
