SOURCE: my car won't start I don't hear it crank

Get a test light, and see if your starter has battery power, (big wire/stud) on starter. itll light up if you do. then there should be a little wire. thats your igntion switch wire. have someone start your car while you testing the little wire. if the light comes on. then your starter is probably bad, even if its new they still can be bad. If it doesnt light up then, you need to locate the starter relay in engine compartment,I should have one. test to see if it clicking when you try to start it. youll feel it. If not pull it out and test to see if you have power. do the same test with someone starting it and see if you light comes on. If it comes on then replace the relay. and you could try and see if your ignition fuse is ok. I hope this gets you started. if not right back were your stuck at.

SOURCE: Replacement valet key

you HAVE to get it from a nissan dealer.the valet key has a tooth cut that is different,so that is does open the trunk or glovebox and there is a lockout switch in the glovebox.
but there is a chip in the key and the car will not start without it.
if you try to start the car a few times without the chip,the car will have to be towed to get the body control module re programmed .

SOURCE: My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not

If you look under the hood, there is a starter relay that might be the problem - but more common than that, - Do you have an alarm system of anykind? If so, It sounds alot like that is the problem, and they are notorious for causing "no start" problems as such - Unfortunatey, the wiring for these (even to just remove one) can be rather involved (as they often cut the starter wire to install an interrupt) so you may have to take it to an auto electric shop, or one that specializes in alarm systems - Also, dealers sometimes install special "electronic lot key systems" in all of their new cars, requiring that the "electronic key" must be present in the vehicle (along with the correct physical key) in order for it to start - I'd check for one of those systems as well - Hope that helps...

Check the transmission neutral start inhibit switch is not the cause of your problem. (try both 'P' to 'N' positions).
If the headlights work ok there should be enough power in the battery to at least make a solenoid type noise when start is attempted- so it may not be caused by a faulty alternator.
Check the battery terminals are clean and firmly attached to the battery,
Check battery is properly grounded to the chassis and motor,
Check that +12v is available at the starter motor engage solenoid when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position - check any start slave relay operation.
If all above is OK, you may have a faulty starter motor.

I changed my car battery, now my 2008 Nissan Altima key fob won't work


There is a special procedure involved in keying your fob to your car once the battery has been changed. You must lock and open the door with your key. Turn the ignition to "on"(not start) then push the fob's open and close button, then shut off ignition. This procedure is done everything the key battery is changed. Hope this can help you!

I replaced my battery in my 2006 nissan altima, car started right up, however the alarm set off and when the car started the battery light stayed on and also the brake light. There is no throttle either...


Hi Judy, sounds like your Altima has gone in to the secruity immobilzer mode. Your car thinks you are trying to steal it!
Depending on what factory system you have installed will determine how to remedy it...

Here is the basic relearn procedure---Lock & unlock your doors with the KEY.
1) Turn the key to the ON position and wait 15 seconds.

2) Turn the key to the OFF position and wait 30 seconds.

3) Repeat steps 1 & 2.

If problems still remains, follow the same procedure with the valet key or another key that is registered to that immobilizer system on the vehicle.
Also, check your owners manual---there should be more security advice in there.

I hope this helps...holler back if you need more assistance...

I have a viper alarm on my car that wont shut off nor i cant start the car..and i have tried the button under my dash, how Can i shut it off??


was it a professional or shade tree install? the following is off vipers website:
disarming without a remote control
This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the
Remote Control should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order to
disarm the system without a remote remote control, you must have
the vehicle’s ignition key and know where the Valet button is
located. Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the
number of presses of the Valet button required to disarm the system.
To disarm the security system,
turn the ignition to the ON position.
Press the Valet button the
preset number of times (one to
five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system will
disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited too long;
turn the ignition off and on and try again.
if that doesn't work try this other

valet mode
You can prevent your security system from automatically arming
and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when
washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the
security system will not arm, even with the Remote Control, but
all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will
continue to work normally.
To enter or exit Valet Mode:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the Valet
button within 10 seconds.
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode,
and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.

I have a 06 sentra ser spec v and i have a spare key and i started it with the spare cause i dont have the original,would that cause my car not to start up again?


Some spare keys are "valet" keys and dont send an electronic signal to your ignition telling your car to start like a normal key would. Sometimes this can temporarily disable your vehicle.

I lost the key for my 2001 nissan altima and made a copy that opens the door but does not start the car


The factory key has a chip in it. Without the chip that communicates with the vehicle, it will not start. You will need to go to the dealer, and get the proper key. They may request your vehicle identification number located in the bottom driver side of the windshield.

My car alarm is blinking but the remote doesn't work. I already replaced the battery to the remote so I know that's not the problem. If I open the car the alarm goes off and doesn't allow me to start the...


You need to first look under the drivers side dash area near the hood release/fuse panel area and see if there is a valet switch. The switch will look like a little toggle or a push switch. After you locate it, turn the ignition switch to the on position(dont start it) and flick the valet to the opposite position it is in now. If done correctly in most cases the red system light will stay a constant instead of off or blinking indicating you are in valet mode. Next try to start the engine. If this doesnt work you need to remove the alarm system and repair the ignition switch wiring or replace the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The aftermarket alarm cuts into the ignition switch wires and bypasses the start circuit through the alarm module. When disarmed the alarm completes the circuit and allows the car to start. Good luck hope this helps and please rate this.
