Car won't start

Asked by Mar 08, 2014 at 10:06 AM about the 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: General

I sat in my car for 20 minutes with the engine off waiting for my son. When I went to start
the car, it wouldn't start. The brake pedal was very hard and the steering whelp wouldn't
was locked.  I read somewhere that I had to jump the car. We did and it started right up.
But now I'm afraid to sit in the car without the engine running.

If you were listening to the radio or had any of the interior lights on they could have run the battery down enough for it not to crank. Might want to have your battery tested it could also be about time for a new one.
