Altima 2007 hybrid break problem

One hour before the problem started. I drove the car home, parked it in my parking lot. When I came back to the car, I got in tried to start it by pressing the start button it did turn on the light on the dash board. but didn't turn on the car. My car was towed to the nearess nissian dealer. I asked him if it was because of the recalls he said no because if the keys were faulty the dash would have not lit .Anyways I took it there to get the problem fixed ,and because i don't know where another place is that can fix hybrids had to pay the high price.
After paying he told next time it happens to press really hard on the break and it should fix the problem. I wish he would have told me earlier i would have saved myself my time and money. Hopefully this helps someone else save some money and time. try this first before heading to a dealer.

Very interesting post, But I can't help but think there must still be a problem if you have to press the brake pedal really hard. I am not doubting you one bit on what you were told but it seems a bit odd to me.

I can see where a bad brake switch could cause this problem, ( The switch that lets the car know your brake is applied and it is safe to start the car).

Thanks for your post.

It wont start


Try to engage the parking break and then start. Not likely a battery issue with the onboard 300 volt battery.
If the car has been at an unusual angle while in park the parking break is required to start.

All lights are supposed to turn off when a subaru key is off right? No! There is a switch on top of the steering wheel column that will turn on lights for warning when parked. You somehow have hit that switch.

Brakes are very touchy after sitting


I thought the caprice had disk on all wheels?? But it sounds like it's time for the rear brakes to be serviced. If you do have rear drums the pads could be worn and the shoes are slipping and grabing. You can try backing up in a empty parking lot and backing up and giving full brake application. About the 7th application would reset the brakes, if that does not help then the breaks need to be serviced. Good kick

I just had the same problem with my 2009 Nissan Hybrid, this happened once in the parking lot and once on the street, I took the car to the dealer Friday October 16, and they found nothing wrong.
It is a dangerous situation, especially if it happened on the freway at high speed.
