Just got my 2008 Pathfinder SE New today from the dealer and after parking in the garage for 3 hours it would not start again. Anyone has the same problem? I started the car when I was at the dealer and but it wouldn't start now... what the hell...
The engine Cranks and all the lights come on fine so battery is out of the
question.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks,

When you crank the engine, does the security light come on? If so, the Pathy isn't recognizing the key, so the NVIS (Nissan Vehicle Immobilization System) is cutting off the fuel. It'll crank fine, but the engine won't fire.

Try starting it with a different key and see if that works. If it does, bring the culprit, non-working key back to the dealership to be reprogrammed.

Yup, turns out that it was the KEY... it came with three but I only tried one yesterday.
Never thought the same key would act differently. After trying the other two keys it works... Phew... thought I got a LEMON... = )

Thanks guys!
