2011 Nissan Altima won't start but fan motor runs

Asked by Aug 19, 2016 at 08:21 PM about the 2011 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car was running fine until I got ready to go to the store yesterday. I
stepped on the brake and pressed the start button...Nothing!!! Everything
came on radio, a/c even the fan motors. The car would not start. I was told
it maybe the starter since I just replaced the battery two weeks ago. I had a
new starter put on this morning went to start and the same thing happened
NOTHING!!! everything still came on fan motor and all but the car wouldn't
start. I googled and watched you tube videos to get some information. I
summed out the brake switch because my brake lights come on. Then I
was told it could be my neutral safety switch gone bad or the integrated
dynamic module. So I had it tested with the code reader and no codes are
being read at all it says an error. Can someone please point me in the right
direction. This is really weird.

Check for spark. Check for fuel. Probably fuel pump

I have over half a tank of gas. I was told I wasn't due for spark plugs. My car has 88k miles on it. How will I know if if the fuel pump?

Radiator fan continuously stays on for you? What was the problem

none of these answers are helpful since he said the cars starter is not engaging it would have to be a switch or sensor between the button and the starter
