Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I go to start the car, with my foot on the brake, I press the start switch, I hear the starter running but the engine will not start.  The engine does not fire at all. What could the problem be?

The teeth on the starter flywheel could be broken, and therefore not able to engage the engine. The starter solenoid brings those gears together to start the engine, so it could be the solenoid. Good luck!

Check the sensors - these cars are notorius for the sensor problems!!! I must've changed 5 of them since I got the car (2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL). Had the same problem, the car wont start, accelarate, engine won't start etc... all sensor related! I hope it helps!

It's your break pedal switch I had the exact same problem. There's a little black piece that's connected to your break pedal that will cause the car to not start when it goes bad I had to get my vehicle towed and before the tow truck could get out the dealer parking lot the car was fixed. They just switched out the piece it's covered under warranty

If it was the brake pedal switch it would not turn over. It could be lots of things ( fuel, spark, sensors, ect.)
