Hiya

The first stage of diagnosis will be a full Diagnostic Code Read.  This should be carried out using Nissan Consult Diagnostic Equipment due to its ability to place the fault codes in order of diagnostic preference.  When you have completed this step a diagnostic path can be established.

If the Engine is in a good condition then one would think you could be looking at an electrical issue.  It could be the Fule Pump Control, The Ignition System Control or The Immobiliser System.  Until you have had the Diagnostic Code Read Carried out it is impossible to proceed any further.

I would suggest that this is carried out within a Nissan Dealer due to them having the correct Diagnostic Equipment.  You can find y our nearest dealer here: Nissan Dealer Locator
