It's not a manual cranking device ;-)
just tap it once... it'll start. everytime ;-)
exactly. foot on brake. press button once, let go. No need to hold it in.

Normally, that's how I would start the car, too. Everytime. But the point is not how you start the car, the point of this thread is that it DIDN'T start, regardless of how you tap, hold, or punch the push start. I tend to agree with Dualcycle - it had to be a specific situation where the car would protect itself from "a threat" and wouldn't start on purpose.

Question about that - a tiny bit off topic, but: If you are in an extremely cold weather climate (during the winter) it is common for the car to sometimes not start on the first try. How does the push button ignition handle this? The manual talks about 'cranking' the engine (not sure what page, I am at work), but how do you 'crank' the engine if you are using electronic ignition? Does the car have a pre-determined amount of 'turns' before it determines the engine won't start? Does it keep turning over until it starts? Or, do you simply press the button again if the car doesn't start on the first try?

I haven't had my car through a winter and I am sure someone out there has had an experience where their car didn't turn over on the first try?

From what it says in the manual, there seems to be a way to 'crank' the engine, although I have never held the button down (and don't plan to) to try out this 'feature'.

good question. my guess would be, once the button is pushed, it will crank for a pre set amount of time, then need pushed again.

it does not matter if you hold it for 0.2 second or 2 seconds or 5 seconds... it WILL NOT extend or shorten cranking time.
its just a button that lets computer know that you want to start the engine.. like I said before - its has nothing to do with manually turning the key in older cars.

most likely it will crank for up to 10 seconds, then it will pause for 5 or so, and will try for another 10 seconds. (based on remote car starters installation experience ;-)

From what I remember in the manual... in order to crank it you hold the accelerator pedal 3/4's of the way down and hit the Start button.

HAHA! Well I live in Southern Ontario - so the extreme cold weather to perform the test will be here soon enough. There were a few days this past winter where I was surprised to find anything start.

Funny story, my good ole boss just informed me this morning that he had went our local car rental place and happened to get a 07 2.5 Alti. He said he was ready to call me because he couldn't get it started. He insisted that he had his foot on the brake and pressed the start button. He tried for about 5 minutes and gave up...he started walking back to the rental place and then thought about calling me first since I have the same car(but 3.5 of course). So back to the car he went to call me, but he thought he give it another shot and what do u know it started right up. To believe or not to believe???

^ i actually just found out today that as soon as i get out of the driver's seat.. the car will display no key on the info screen on the dash... hmm, wonder why Nissan did not give the car a little more range between when you have to have the key close to the ignition and then pushing the start button? and yes i have had the problem where i simply did not push the button far enough in and the car obviously did not know that i wanted to start the car.. now i am so used to in i start to the car so easily now (it still amazes my passengers!) haha

one more reason why I'll rather upgrade my car then buy a new one. I am fed up with nissan putting stuff into cars and not even testing it fully.
