Question about 2007 Nissan Altima 3.5 Sedan
I have a 2007 nissan altima and I press the brake and button to turn on the car but it does not want to turn on at all. Would you happen to know what is the problem?
The second switch is a relay. Once you depress the brake pedal it closes the circuit and allow power to flow the starter so that when you push the start button it turns and starts your engine. The contacts in relays after a while will start to ware out or start to pit just like points in the older cars and it could not make contact to close the loop with in the circuit which will result not starting.

I had the same issue. It turned out that the break pedal switch was broken. The engine start push button is connected to a second break pedal switch that senses when you push it. That switch is independent from your main break pedal switch that turns on the brake lights of the car.

I just got it fixed today. The brake switch was faulty and it was replaced.
