2002 Nissan Xterra will not start but security light keeps blinking

Asked by Jun 27, 2014 at 11:10 PM about the 2002 Nissan Xterra SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Nissan Xterra that will not start. It will make a few clicks when I turn the key,
but nothing else. The security light keeps blinking, and I'm wondering if it has something to
do with the security system. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

my 2002 chevy impala was doing this all the time for years. I learned that if you keep the key in the ON position for a FULL 10 MINUTES than it will start. It has had a computer changes and since than for some odd reason does it rarely now. many people have this issue and never had a recall
