Sounds like it is in some sort of 'Protect Mode'. You need to connect it to a scan tool and check the codes or Live Data

With the car OFF and sunroof OPEN inspect all around the sunroof's frame. If nothing found that might be in the way (rocks, twigs, etc.), turn on the car CLOSE the sunroof and see if you can push it UP while closing to 'help it'. If it works, I'd just leave it closed 'til you can take it to the dealer/shop to fix it.

Opt for the Toyota Hiace pickup truck as it is more fuel economical and lower cost of maintenance.

You need to go to a parts house and have them read the codes. Most do this at no charge. A blinking service engine light indicates that a problem exists that can cause engine damage. For example, if a spark plug is miss firing it could damage the catalytic converter. The steady light indicates that a code has been recorded.

Pull the radio and check the antenna jack. It may be unplugged.

Try starting it in neutral instead or park...It may be your neutral start switch is bad in the park position. Otherwise, it sounds like a starter relay is not working.

i think replacing the sensor is in order. i know all car makes have "recalibration updates" for the ecm and should be done, but have rarely fixed vehicles on just that alone. and your symptoms suggest the sensor could be intermittently bad

in order for the shift lock solenoid to release a stop lamp signal must be received. the 2 most common causes of an intermittent inop. shift lock solenoid would be (1) intermittently the stop lamps do not work (stop lamp switch, etc.) or (2) intermittently the shift lock solenoid receives power but does not operate (bad solenoid). There are certainly other possible causes but I'd begin by confirming the stop lamps turn on when the shift lock does not release. Hope this helps

get the trouble codes read to find out what's setting the warning light on

I have the same problem in my car. I too have a 2005 Nissan Altima. Mine seems to only happen when I go on long trips. (about an hour/hour and a half) When this happens, my sevice engine soon light will come on and if I turn off my car, I have to give it gas to turn back on. It seems after it has had a chance to cool off it is back to normal again and in a couple of days the engine light goes off. There was a recall in '07 about the crankshaft that states: IF THE INTERRUPTION IN THE SIGNAL FROM THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR IS SO BRIEF THAT THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE (ECM) LOGIC DOES NOT HAVE TIME TO DIAGNOSE THE CONDITION, THE ENGINE MAY STOP RUNNING WITHOUT WARNING WHILE THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN AT A LOW SPEED INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH. That may be looking into. I am going to do that in the next couple of weeks and ask them their opinion on why my car does what it is. I have looked and thought also it may be my feul pump. I will try to keep you posted.

Look for a sticker on/near the drivers door or under the engine compartment hood.
