2010 Nissan Altima, my ICY alert is now on and will not go off?

You can Disable that warning. The body shop probably unhooked the battery and this reset the warning. In any collision, the body shop is supposed to have a mechanic check the rest of the vehicle. Take it back to the shop. The temp sensor could be having issues on the air flow sensors.

My 2008 Nissan Altima was caught in high water and died but it will not start again. Is there a fuse or rest button that will help get it started?

In doing a study (on ALLDATA which is just like a factory manual) of your car for any electronics that are low enough on the car whether it be inside or outside the car, there is nothing that should be effected by water getting up to the level of the floorboard. The water would have had to have come up higher. To answer you initial question, NO there is no reset button. It would be a wise idea to bring the car to a repair shop where experienced technicians can look at your car because driving in deep water can have other damaging effects on the car.

Dirver side door won't open from inside car

The pull rod from the inside handle to the latch mechanism has probably fallen out of the lever. You will have to remove the door trim and put it back in. It will be held in by a plastic clip that break on a regular basis.

The driver's side door on my 2003 Nissan Altima will not open from the inside.

The interior door panel will need to be removed from the door. The linkage is no longer connected to the lever- it will need to be reconnected with the window in the UP position. This is a common problem when someone locks their keys in their car and uses a coat hanger to "pop" the lock. The hanger catches the rod and pulls it out. If you did not do that, someone may have targeted your car and attempted to break into it.

2005 nissan altima won't start, clicking noise is heard

It sounds like your battery is dead. You may be able to fix this with a jump start if you left your lights on over night. If a good jump does not work it may be your starter. but you should start with the simple and cheap solution first. Try having someone jump start your car.
