On Sunday, 12/16/12 Evening Around 11:15pm, I Was Driving Home From Out Of Town And Had To Pull Over For Gas About 45 Miles Away From The House. I Turned Off The Vehicle And Filled Up The Gas And The Car Would Not Start Once We Were Ready To Leave. The Abs And Flip Lights Would Blink And The Battery Would Power Up But The Car On The Push Button Ignition Would Not Respond Which Would Start The Car, I Called The Towing Company And I Was Charged $173 For Towing To The Dealer As The Mechanic Was Not Able To Start The Vehicle Either. The Following Morning, I Received A Call From The Dealer Stating The Brake Pedal Switch Which When Pressed With The Key Fob In The Vehicle Allows The Car To Be Started When Pressing The Push Button Ignition Switch; That Switch Attached To The Brake Harness Had Gone Bad And I Was Given A Cost Of $232.64 To Replace This Switch. The Dealer Stated That He Was Showing In His System That This Switch Was Redesigned Recently And The New Redesigned Switch Which Would Include Replacing The Brake Pedal Harness Also Would Cost Me A Total Of $531.17 And He Stated That He Recommends The New Redesigned Switch Over The Lesser Expensive Same Type Of Switch That Went Bad Which Would Be At Risk Of Going Bad Again Soon. I Escalated The Issue To nissan Consumer Affairs At 1-800-nissan-1, Case #10255931. I Requested Them To Cover The Expense As I Had Exceeded The Manufacturers Warranty Only By 3000 Miles And Had Bought The Car Brand New In May, 2010. They Researched The Matter And Declined To Cover The Expense Due To A Previous Brake Rotor Issue I Had Escalated To Them 3 Months After Purchasing The Vehicle Which Was A Separate Issue. I Hope No One Else Is Stranded As We Were With My Wife, My Twin 3 Year Old Boys, And Myself At 11:30pm At Night Far Away Due To A Blown Out Switch Which Has Now Been Redesigned, I Am Asking That A Recall On This Be Opened Up. *tr

If I Have To Pump The Brakes To Get The Car Started, Will I Soon Have To Pump The Brakes To Stop?????? Vehicle Not Recognize The Key. Happened Several Times Prior To 6/15/2013. Just Thought The Key Needed To Be Charged. But On This Date I Pull Up At A Hotel, Checked In And Went To Move The Car And It Wouldn’t Start. Sat For An Hour Or Two. Replaced Battery A Few Weeks Prior So It Wasn’t That. Had To Be Towed To A Pepboys. Too Late For A Dealership, A Saturday Evening, And I Was Over 5 Hours From Home. The Car Was Dropped Off Across From The Bays Therefore They Were Unable To Connect The Diagnostic Machine. After Setting For A Couple More Hours It Finally Crank. They Said It Was The Starter, As Of Today I Have Not Replaced The Starter. In August It Did It Again Twice While My 16 Yr Was Driving It To School. A Couple Of Times In September. I Took It To The Dealer On 10/14/2013, Their Diagnosis Were: Replace Brake Sw, Sub Harness, And Tie Straps. And Now Almost On A Daily Basis Want Start Without Pumping The Brakes. I’m The Only One That Drives The Car Now Because I’m Afraid Of The Brakes Eventually Giving Out. *tr

Most Of The 2010 nissan altima Cars Do Have A Push Button For The Ignition To Start. In Order To Start The Car’s Engine, The Driver Would Need To Lightly Press The Brakes Before Pressing The Button. I Purchased The Brand-new Car Back In September 2010 And I Am Still The Only Owner. In February 2014 With Approximately 38,000 Miles, The Ignition Started To Stop Working. After A Few Struggles, The Ignition Button Would Finally Allow Me To Start The Engine. Then The Problem Gradually Got Worse. I Noticed That The Brakes Would Suck In So Hard That I Would Be Unable To “press” The Brakes Anymore In Order For The Ignition Button To “enable” So I Can Start The Engine. At One Point Last Week, The Car Refused To Start Because Of The Brakes And I Was Unable To Do Anything But To Put The Car In Neutral And Push The Car Back And Forth In The Middle Of A Mcdonald’s Drive-thru Route In Baltimore, Md. My Roommate Had To Take Leave In Order To Come And Help Me Out. After 2 Hours Of Struggling, We Were Able To Get The “brakes Light” On And The Ignition Would Finally Become Enabled And We Were Able To Start The Engine. We Drove Straight To The nissan Dealership In Bowie, Md And Told Them What Happened. nissan About This And They Acknowledged That This Is A Common Problem Among Many Drivers And That The “brake Switch” Is Causing It. At The End, My Warranty Company Had To Pay More Than $800 And I Had To Pay Almost $300 Out Of My Pocket Just For This Issue. I Researched Online And Saw So Many Drivers Are Complaining The Same Thing And That nissan Is Refusing To Issue A Recall For This Because They Knew It Is A “common Problem” That They Could Make A Profit Out Of The Repairs Charges. Many Drivers Had To Pay Approximately $1,000 Just For This “common Issue” And I Would Like To Make Sure That Nhtsa & Dot Are Aware Of This Ongoing Issue. Thank You. *tr

When You Try To Start Vehicle You Push On Brake Pedal, But The Pedal Doesn’t Go Down 1/16 Of An Inch. The Brake Lights Wont Even Come On. If You Push The Start Button It Will Only Go To The Accessory Then Off. When I Asked service Manager At Nelson nissan In Broken Arrow, Ok And I Quote “he Said You Had To Have Key On Before Brake Lights Would Come On”… I Am Like Really!!! The Brake Lights Umm No They Should Come On Anytime You Push The Brake If The Key Is On Or Not. Please Help Us American’s And Other Hard Working Tax Paying People Get Our Cars Fixed.

Norfolk, Virginia – My 2010 nissan altima With Push Button Start Failed To Start. All Other Electrical Seemed Fine. I Had Just Previously Noticed The Abs, Vdc And Slip Warning Lit While Driving. After Checking Fuses, Key Fob Batteries, Etc. I Attempted To Pump The Brakes Several Times And It Finally Started. Drove Immediately To The Dealer Where I Was Told It Was The Brake Lamp Switch And Harness Which Must Be Replaced At A Cost Of $550.00. He Seemed To Know With Out Of Even Looking What The Problem Was. When I Questioned Him About Such An Expensive Switch, He Only Said “this Happens A Lot With This Model.” This Should Be Recalled And Fixed At nissan‘s Expense.

I Have Read Numerous Accounts Of The nissan altima Being Unable To Start When The Required Brake/start Button Is Used. I Am Having The Same Problem. When The Brake Is Applied And The Start Button Pushed, The Acc Light Comes On Then, If Pushed Again, The On Light Comes On (over The Start Button). Then When Pushed Again, The System Shuts Off. By Trying Several Times And Pumping The Brake, The Car Will Eventually Start. Since This Has Been Reported Numerous Times, There Is Obviously A Defect In The Car’s Parts/system. There Should Be A Recall To Have nissan Replace The Faulty Parts Free Of Charge.

Several Times Over The Past Few Months And Everyday For The Past Week, The Car Will Not Start During Ignition Due To The Inability To Depress The Brake. The Only Way To Get It To Start Is To Repeatedly Hit The Brakes While Pressing The Start Button. It Never Consistently Works But Eventually Starts. After Starting, The Abs, Vdc, And Slip Warning Lights Are Illuminated. There Have Been Multiple Reports Of The Same Thing Happening With This Model From Other Owners. This Poses A Serious Risk To Health Particularly In Times Where One May Need To Leave Immediately. More Often, It Is An Extreme Inconvenience. The Dealership service Departments Want To Charge Over $500 To Repair Something That Is Clearly Defective And Systematic. Please Do Something About This As Many altima Owners Are Experiencing The Same Frustration That I Have Endured.

The Car Failed To Start Because The Brake Switch And The Entire Harness Sub Failed. I Had To Tow Away The Car To The Nearest nissan Showroom And Was Charged $440 To Replace Harness-sub, Switch Assy Sto, Band Hose Plus Labour. Ps: This Is A Known Problem But nissan Wont Refund My Money. How Can A Vehicle Just Under 50k Fail For Such A Thing If Not For A Bad Factory Harness.

My Brake Light Came On And I Topped It Off With Oil And It Went Home. This Was On Sunday. I Took It In Monday To Have It Checked And The Master Cylinder Was Leaking And I Had It Replaced For $612.73. I Called nissan As I Found There Were Some Complaints And Found A Site Where nissan Was Reimbursing Customers. They Checked My Vin Number And Told Me My Car Was Not Eligible. This Is Too New Of A Car With Hardly Any Miles On It. Now They Say My Front Struts Need Replacing. I Never Had To Replace Struts On My Old Mazda Until It Had Very High Mileage On It. I Am Not Pleased.
