Just a thought here...all of the cars I've driven that had pushbutton start require the brake to be depressed for the engine to start. Wouldn't it be nice if it was something as simple as a brake light switch? That seems to be the common denominator between the start circuit and the shift interlock. If it were my car I'd probably unplug the switch and jumper it momentarily just to see if it'll start.

I can't test it now. It's at the dealership.

But, the brake pedal would not depress (it was hard as a rock, like when you try applying power brakes when the engine is off) but the brake lights still came on.

I'm not sure why trying to reset the airbag light would cause the brake light switch to fail. Could be a coincidence, but it doesn't seem likely.

Fook. I dunno.

Well, whatever it is I hope it's something cheap and simple. Like that ever happens.

I'm leaning toward seeing if they want to buy it from me. Just wash my hands of it.

Fair enough. I drive a camry and previously owned an accord. They are the standard by which we measure how boring other cars are, but they always run. Just stay away from V6 hondas and acuras (rampant transmission failures) and toyotas with the 2AZ engine (equally rampant oil burning).

Or get something fun.

This one sold, but I'm thinking of something along these lines:

I always liked that body style on the Sentra.

Also, my son will be starting to drive in the next few years. I don't need anything fast around the house for him to take over.

my dd is a 02 Sentra Spec-v, 2.5, MT, it is a fun car, I put a CAI & catback on it and if I keep my foot out of it I can get 30mpg in town, not too bad for an old car

So I'll let everyone know what happened.

After 5 non cranking starts, Nissan's immobilization system decides that the wireless keys must be phony and blocks them from accessing the starting system.

The dealership had to set my 2 key fobs to work with the ECU in my car. $230 later, I got my car back.
