It is installed in parallel with the starter relay. I'll post the final outcome. It has been nothing but problems ever since. I going to take it to my mechanic to see if he can confirm if that is the problem and if it is and the recall warranty does not cover it or the Leasing company does not cover it the can take this car a shove it. You just have to buckle up and pay it. I am stating only one. I am now stranded at home.
Had to be toughed to dealer. After reading the Owner's Manual, I found it had something to do with the steering. Tried to reset cruise control and still would not fix the issue. If you have a spare key, try that too. I get in the car to go to lunch and push the start button and nothing.
It still does not work properly and shifts so hard my passengers think I'm slamming on the brakes. The research I did said that sometimes you could get it to release the lock pin if you tap on it with hammer. I went to pick up my family went to start the car and there was no recognition. So hopefully, with regular mtce, I should be good for a bit. It happened in September the 6th at 6:46 pm.
The failure mileage was 88,000. The warning light indicates a problem with either the key fob or the electronic systems in the car. I hit the ignition button to turn it on and it did turn it on fine and I did not see the warning light. I hope to be reimbursed for this issue as its a obviously a mechanical malfunction and not something an owner should be held liable for. He asked a bunch of questions about the key batteries and those were just replaced so that should not be the issue. Tire Pressure Low - Add Air if so equipped 20. Suddenly car accelerated to approx 80-90 mph and would not slow down when I removed my foot from the gas pedal for at least 30-60 seconds.
Seemed like a security anti-theft problem but it turned out to be a faulty steering lock mechanism. The steering wheel is locked and will not allow the brake pad to depress for the operation of the vehicle. So I stepped on the brake while holding in the start button and tapping on the steering lock module. If enough people share this level of detail they may open an investigation on this issue and demand a recall. The approximate failure mileage was 38,000. After much research this seems to be a fairly common and known issue.
I am afraid to drive for fear of being stranded again!. Ask the manager if they are sure that its the steering mechanism, and that they aren't just guessing. It can happened anytime which put a persons life in danger if you get stuck on or to f the road. Well, I did some more searching on the internet tonight and found lots of complaints about the 2009 Altima Steering Lock and that appears to be my issue as well. This is used certified Nissan Altima and the extended warranty did not cover the repair. I totaled my Altima 1 year ago. Please reply to confirm you filed a complaint.
Hopefully it's an easy fix. And for some reason i feel that by disconnecting the battery and connecting it again, you would probably be able to turn the car on, at least to get to your destination, but I'm not sure about this.

The low oil pressure warning is not designed to indicate a low oil level.
This issue happened on Tuesday, February 5, 2013. Driving on a highway, this creates a serious danger. I was lucky to be in a public place in the daytime. I get into the car and a yellow key light appears on the dash and the push to start button displays 'lock'. I had to leave the car there. I doubt they will recall this. A computer is still a computer whether its in your home or your car.
Usually not grounding within the drl module. If the drl module is faulty the symptoms are, no drl, and one or more lights not working. Any updates with the situation i have started having the same problem lately. I found a video on you tube where a guy just moved the steering wheel up, down, left, right a few times to get the car to start. Even with the pedal to the metal. I have the 5 yr 100k mile warranty and the wheel lock was covered along with the tow.
They then said I would have to have it towed. There are two ways to unlock the vehicle with the Nissan Intelligent Key. Took 4 days to hear back from them. Not only the ignition interlock but also with the accelerator. The best way to describe the problem is trying to start the car without the key in your pocket. I have recently have the same problem with my Altima 08. Usually the dash display shows the instructions on how to start the car 'clutch' and the push to start button.
