A Nissan dealer has to either reset your security system, or maybe its a bad computer which once again a Nissan dealer will have to reprogram a new computer. I have a 2000 Altima Gxe 2.4 and it died driving down the road. It will turn over but wont start. Theres no spark, no gas Nothing. I read that the security system can shut the whole car down but in my case- I smelled something burning- its the computer. In either case your car wont do anything and youll have to bring it to the dealer.
