Customer Question

Hi, I have a nissan micra SE, 52 plate and cannot start my car!
It has smart key technology but last summer when the weather was very hot, I was unable to turn the ignition and had to resort to using the emergency key which worked on most occasions. This continued most of the summer and then seemed to right itself when the weather turned colder, not sure if this was a coincidence. It still played up occasionally! My car went for its annual service and mot at my local garage and they could not find a problem with it.
A little while ago my central locking system stopped working and now after 2 weeks of not being used due to holidays, I am unable to start the car using the emergency key or otherwise.
I look forward to hearing from you.
