I had my 17 year-old bring me my other fob, I replaced batteries in the fob, I looked up problems in the manual. I had major issues with my Nissan. It's one of the many reasons this car was named and given our Beware of this Clunker badge. Dealer of course made no mention of this problem. It was parked and when I tried turning it on, it did not read the key, the ignition did not even notice there was a key, the steering was locked.
Make sure you detail the dangers of this defect e. I Googled the issue and found out it was a steering lock problem. If you decide to 'fix' your problem like I plan to do, and you succeed, make sure that the locking bar is secure and will never accidently come out and lock the column while you are driving. The steering wheel lock system uses an actuator that moves back and forth to lock and unlock the steering. This can be very dangerous for drivers who are in remote or dangerous areas.
Source: Complaint 4: My 2009 Altima would not start. My here was also an extended warranty for this problem that was issued on the 2009. I called roadside and was told it could be a few hours to get a tow. I will know everything by tomorrow and will keep you guys updated! They offered to keep the car and give me a rental so they could overnite the parts and do it tomorrow. They will give you a case number and investigate and contact you within 48 hours with a decision. If I would have had my kids in the car it could have been really dangerous.
For example, the key lock solenoid and switch, nats antenna amp, fuseblock, or even the ecm. We bought our car from a dealership in 2014 and we not made aware of this issue or any potential warranty extension. . I called both the local dealer and Nissan of North America and they both gave me the same run around. When Nissan contacted the repair shop after receiving my claim, they obviously did not remember the work they did. Was there a warranty on the repair? I haven't had the car 60 whole days, and it's been in the shop 4 times with very little success and a lot of frustration and time lost! I talked to a guy at Town North Nissan in Austin and he has 5 Altimas waiting for the part.
You just need to call consumer affairs first and make a case phone number is 1800 nissan1. Going to check to see if the brake lights come on I'm a do use a Snowbrush to keep the brake pedal depressed if the brake switch is bad then the car should start. Yes this might not get Nissan to issue a recall but I know it will cost them multiple sales and complaints on the front end and hit their bottom line. I am pretty sure I know what the response is going to be and I am preparing to contact Nissan Customer Satisfaction at 1-800-Nissan1. This is my third car I buy through Nissan, I am really reconsidering my next car to get a different car brand. Here are a few examples of what I found: Complaint 1: The car involved is a 2009 Nissan Altima. I refuse to pay for this on a lease car.
If you decide to replace the unit from Nissan and install it yourself. Went out to my car after work one night. A lot of complaints about this part that Nissan is not covering for all 09 Altima. Does it matter that when it failed my wheel wasnt locked? I am contacting my local news station and my state ag for resolution. The steering wheel locking function is not necessary as the vehicle is also equipped with an anti-theft immobilizer to help prevent theft. Sometimes starts to work normal, sometimes not.
The car will not start at all. All we want is a reliable product that can perform the way it was intended to perform. The steering wheel lock was replaced in 2012 I think it's possible that it's broken again. Nissan took this part out of their 2010 models so it obviously is a faulty part. Also, if they had taken the initiative to make the recall sooner, it could have been fixed before it messed up other systems.
The brake was extremely stiff and pushing the start button did nothing. They will pretty much run you around in circles,tell you this and that but in the end you will have to collect like cases and prove its a issue with massive proof they will hide all repairs they have completed under warranty or costs to owners. Tried jumping battery, did not work. It had to be towed. Best car I have ever owned.
Please reply to confirm you filed a complaint. I noticed a key light on the dashboard. There should be a make-wide recall for all models for this part, not just the gtr because it's the most expensive of them. I had to be towed. I have a 2009 Altima and not sure I will ever buy another one. If a recall is performed all users who paid for the repair will be refunded. The yellow key light comes on and then goes away when I depress the brake pedal at first and try to press the start button.
Thank you for providing us an opportunity to ensure on-going satisfaction with your Nissan vehicle. You may want to pack a lunch,several because they rather waste billions in attorney fees then fix them freely. My 2008 Altima was just diagnosed with same problem, steering lock mechanism. I had it towed to Nissan overnight. They will tell you if the issue is the sterring lock we will fix it at no cost if it's not they don't super simple.
