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.

My 2007 Altima wont start and its not the battery or the brake switch


My guess would be either the transmission switch or your alarm system activated for some reason while you were driving assuming your battery and alternator is good?

2007 nissan altima won't go in reverse or drive


Hi,
It starts and runs OK, correct?

Check your fluid level - Directions in the Owner's Manual.

Are you pushing the brake pedal b4 trying to move the lever (sorry, have to ask)?

Does the lever move @ all? Into Neutral?

Is the Check Engine Light on?

Sounds like you'll need to have it towed to a shop. Call the Better Business Bureau for a reference, or recommendations from family/friends.

GL,

I'm having issues with the push button start in my 2007 nissan altima. I depress the brake and then push the button but it just moves from lock to acc but the car doesn't start. Any ideas?


The brake switch may be going out take it to the dealership. That was happening with my car at first I thought it was the battery. It ended up costing me $130 to fix.

My 20074 Nissan Altima 3.5 will not start. The dash lights and fan will come on but it will not start.


I had the same problem with my 2007 altima I took it to the dealership and they said it was the switch in the break. They said that when the witch goes out it does not recognize that you are pressing the brake pedal down so the engine will not start. My extended just ran out so I had to pay $130 to get it fixed.

Altima 2007 hybrid break problem


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.

2007 altima won't start


Thanks to this forum I just fixed my 07 Altima - Every time I pressed the start button the starter did not turn. I knew it wasn't the battery because if the battery was bad the solenoid clicks when you press the start button.

It turned out one of the two brake switches (the one with the four wires) was causing the problem. I removed the connector and pulled off the back of the switch. I was able to see one of the contacts was corroded. I sanded it down with an emory board till both surfaces were shiny again and reassembled the switch. Works like a charm!!
