Have 2010 Nissan Sentra. Would not crank so pulled battery, took in and was told it was bad. Installed new but still won't crank. Cannot even get transmission into neutral to tow. Any ideas?

Make sure all connections are tight on the battery first off. Seems not likely but you could have a dud battery For the nutral part....There is a little plastic trim piece by the shifter....should look like a small screw driver or key can go in it. You have a sentra so it should be that round thing to the right side on the gear selector trim. There is a button or switch under that tab that allows it to go into neutral. The car key turned on also will put it into neutral as being a front wheel drive car the rear wheels should roll with a tow if on one of the truck hoists...not a flat bed. make sure your foot is on the brake when you are messing with a car in neutral...and have your Emergency brake on before tow is started.
