I went to the dealer and a cracked battery was found and replaced. Finally vehicle refused to engage starter and whirring noise indicating steering lock is functional no longer happens. I should not have the same problem happen twice in 6 months. The consumer stated she was backing out of the driveway, when all of a sudden the engine light flashed and there was an immediate loss of power and no steering capability. Not sure what that problem is. Brake judder after pad+rotor replacement. The contact stated that the engine stalled and the vehicle failed to start with the push to start button function.
The lack of power has happened five times. Hyannis Nissan claims its a door latch problem and it had to be replaced. It is a very dangerous situation. One was for the fuel pump screen and the engine sensor that would cause the car to not start or suddenly stop running. Soon there after the check engine light would come on again now the car would shut off while sitting at the light.
They were pulling their fuses for the steering lock system. It's not fair and Nissan should have to pay. If this happens in the middle of nowhere is a very serious life and death issue. When I push the button it will click as if the battery is dead new battery and then nothing. Judder occurred immediately when attempting pad bedding in procedure.
Calling for a jum start doesn't work either. Could that be hazardous to my health? The problem that I face now is that I cannot get out of my car!!!!!! We are considering buying a new car and although we have owned several Nissans, we don't feel comfortable buying another without assurance that this problem is resolved. I have not taken it to Nissan yet because it has been working for two weeks. I'm the only one that drives the car now because I'm afraid of the brakes eventually giving out. Alignment is out also,but,not bad. One of the most difficult jobs is figuring out where wiring for remote start, remote starter, remote vehicle starter, remote car starter, remote auto starter, remote automotive starter, remote auto starter or remote start module should be connected to on your 2010 Nissan Altima. We have replaced the key fob batteries and the fuse for the engine starter.
Car still would not start. I push 7 to 16 more times and then the car starts. We have the same problem. I was driving when I noticed my dash diagnostic icons were lit, about half of them. They said it was the starter, as of today I have not replaced the starter.
I took it to my mechanic not Nissan and the diagnostic test showed nothing wrong. I don't know what else to do, but I have met other owners who are experiencing the same problem. After setting for a couple more hours it finally crank. Brake switch just replaced in additional attempt to fix problem. Too late for a dealership, a Saturday evening, and I was over 5 hours from home. Nissan should handle all repair expenses. Very easy to do, but tight japanese engines make for some knuckle scraping.
This second time 10-24-05 , my local mechanic showed me a 6-page service technical bulletin that was issued by alldata for my non-starting problem. Starter drops down, so don't let it hit you in the face. Some models are just held on with nuts. During my research, I even read an article that indicated Nissan was aware of the problem, and had extended their warranty to help, but that extension ended in March 2015 and Nissan would not complete a recall because it was not a safety issue. The contact experienced multiple unrelated failures with the vehicle that included the exterior door failing to unlock or lock with the key fob until after several attempts. Adding More Information If you would like to help the Modified Life community by adding any missing 2010 Nissan Altima information or adding a new remote car starter wiring schematic to our resource, please feel free and post it at the bottom of this page. Push the brake pedal and push the start button watch all the lights flash and the car won't start.
Please tell me how I can get this issue escalated to a recall status or what I can do to prevent a 3rd failure. Could it be a faulty brake line,caliper. Is it possible to get Nisson to respond to a request to have a company opinion. Dec 25, 2010 To get to the starter, you'll want to put the car on jacks or a lift. If it was me, considering all the diagnostic work you've done, I'd assume the starter is the likely culprit and replace it. Same judder as the previous pads+rotors that I just replaced,which were new,also. Starting a year ago I began to notice signals on my dash indicating check engine.
But scares me just the same. The technician said sometimes if we get out of the car, lock it and then unlock it and get in, it will work. There seems to be a common issue with these models. I was hoping to know the general location of the starter so that I could possibly examine the connectors going to it. Anyone else having this problem? I had it fixed and a day later the bulb blew later.
They deny this and I am left paying for a car that does not work. I chose the replacement switch option because the first switch lasted 45,500 miles, and if the second switch lasted that many miles, it would not need to be replaced until around the 90 or 95 thousand mile mark. A couple of times in September. I say it is a safety issue. You might have to disconnect some of the plastic air intake conduits to allow for easier access. I changed the bulb three times before they issued a recall on that wire.
