Question about 2009 Nissan Cube

Open Question

Nissan Cube will not start with push button- brand new battery

I have a 2009 Nissan Cube and recently when pushing the start button the dash lights will turn on and a click will sound, but the engine will not turn over- only all the interior lights, locks, etc. I took the car in for a new battery since it was showing as "replace" under the voltage meter, believing this would solve the issue. Today, the car will not start at ALL- the same lights, locks, and click where the engine should start but won't. When the battery was replaced, they checked the alternator and said it was great along with all the other tests they ran, not quite sure hat the problem could be- any help?

Check all grounds running from all electrical, If there is not a good contact this problem will occur, when you locate the ground surface take sandpaper or even a knife and scrape or sand the connector and the ground surface then reconnect it, It should return to normal if not then it could be a solenoid possibly but not sure

The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

Hi Gary

A couple of things, firstly yes the gap i the starter is relevant it suggests that there is either a bad earth, poor connection to either the starter or altenator and / or a fuse may be faulty thats not to sday it has blew as on occasion they can melt when a car is jumped off, especially if the car or van jumping it had a higher amp-age battery.

Secondly regarding the ECU issue why I cannot say for sure this will work it is worth a try with the current situation your having. Disconnect the car battery charge it up if you think that it insufficient power to start the car, if you can leave the battery disconnected overnight, this will allow the ECU battery backup to drain and hopefully reset the ECU back to factory settings.

When you reconnect the battery attach the red "positive" first then the earth "black" second. Lock the car and leave it for about 2 minutes then open/unlock the car and try to start it.

Let me know how you get on with this firstly then get back to me, if no joy there are a few things you can try without forking out for new parts. Also it would be up to the dealer to prove the damage occurred during the jump start, you should argue your point as a paying customer.

Did the garage run a volt meter on the battery? if not they should have before making any diagnosis on the ECU. Relay's & fuses could be a cause as the relay may be sticking hence the slight gap in starting, in theory it would jam after the click not completing the circuit. There are 2 lots of fuses, small type that are found in the car for things like the radio, lights etc and there are larger fuses for the car's computer and main running of the larger components such as alternator & engine wiring, again the garage should have checked these already.

Hope this helps, be careful the dealer is not trying to rob you as they often do. If I can help further please message me back, If I do not respond right away I will get back to you in the morning. as it is getting late here in the UK.

On my 09 altima the break pedal is stiff and the push button will not work

The problem could be the switch under the dash. Or the battery is low and there is not enough voltage coming out of the battery to engage the switch to the start button. Also I have had to [
press the brake and release the shift lock while pushing the start button. The last option you may change the sequencing.

Car not starting

When you try and start the car, does your dash light up? Do you have an I-key? If your dash doesn't light up, you may need to have your steering lock replaced. If your dash lights do come on, have someone stand behind your car and see if your brake lights come on while you push on the brake pedal. If your brake lights do not come on, than you may have a problem with your stop lamp switch.
