    Did you delete already? Not everyone has and specializes in Altimas... sorry but its true.

    In any case, sounds like you may have a faulty starter or a low charged battery. Would be a good idea to get a test done on the battery and charging ability of the alternator... Autozone or other auto parts places will probably do this service for you for free or a low service cost.

If its a crank no start, there issues of crank/cam sensors that go bad (Nissan has new updated ones) also fuel pump might be bad. Rarely a starter issue on the altimas

I have a 05' nissan altima , when starting the car i hear a beep that last 15-20 seconds then when turning it off it occurs again .. any ideas on what this could be ?

Is it a series of three beeps?then the car thinks the key is in the ignition and you need a cylinder. If it is a long steady beep it is because the headlights are on and it is alerting you. The body control module will time out the lights and the beep stops. The transponder key did not come out til 2007. So the beep is not be ause the fob is in tthe car. That is NOT your key system in a 2005. 10 years at nissan.

My 2005 nissan altima won't change from park when crunk up. what could be the problem?

Usually a sign of a faulty brake light switch or lock solenoid on the shifter. You may be able to get the shifter out of park by turning the key to the unlock position but not "on".
There may be a button you can push next to the shifter to unlock in an emergency. Check your owners manual.
