Question about Nissan Altima
You mean the key has to be held on start before it will start to crank over or the or the key has to be held before you even try to start it? I think the battery is dead. But, before we throw the battery in the trash, check a few things out, it could be a number of things wrong here. First, check the water in the battery, make sure it is up to the full ring inside the battery, then check the voltage, should be 13+Volts at any time, then check the connections, better yet, take them off and clean them. Then if that doesn't do it, It may be the starter itself. One way to tell is to have somebody bump the starter with a rod or hammer when the key is turned to see if it will jump. If it does this, it is a bad starter, the bendix, solenoid is bad, and you can't replace the part, you have to get the whole thing. So if you get this far, take the starter to the parts store, have it tested, then either buy another one or go to next batch of tests. Which will be on the next page, because you will probably be back running by then. Hope this helps.
