Hi, 2004 Nissan Almera , I never got an answer through, Thanks Marty.
Expert:  indy-tech replied 4 months ago.
we have an intermittent start, one day good one day bad
Check battery voltage a good battery will have 12.6 + volts and when trying to start should not drop below 10.8 volts .
If does not drop at all check starter connection.
Can you get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes,
You could have a problem with the immobilizer system.
