Nissan Versa will not start or even react to key in ignition

Asked by Apr 04, 2017 at 01:09 AM about the 2010 Nissan Versa 1.8 S Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello all,
My Versa didn't want to start up today. At first inserting the key and turn part
way lit up the dash lights and turned on the radio, however turning the rest of
the way to start the car had no reaction whatsoever, not a single noise, or
click or even attempt to crank. This has happened before, I usually just
remove the key, wait about 1 minute then start the car without a problem.
However, this time the car did not start, even after waiting. I tried to jump the
car thinking the battery might be the problem (it is about 5 years old now) but
nothing happened, not even the dash lights or radio came on when the key
was half-way turned. I would be grateful for any advice to begin diagnosing
the problem, I'm strapped for cash but halfway handy with tools and general
fixing things. Thanks.

make sure the batt. terminals are clean and snug , scan for codes even the light ain't on , look for any loose or worn wires , check the main fuses , the on going problem may have toasted one , let us know what happens
