How to Start a Nissan Murano

In days past, you could simply insert a metal key into the ignition of your car, turn the key and fire up the engine. Not so with the Nissan Murano, which features a push-button ignition. This is progress--no more fumbling around with keys. The only trick is that your "intelligent key" (the factory-programmed key fob) must be in the immediate vicinity. This prevents the dangerous situation of just anyone being able to push one button to start your car.

  • Have your key fob with you inside the car.

  • Press and hold down the brake pedal.

  • Push and release the "Start/Stop" ignition button with your finger or thumb. That will start the Murano.

  • Push and release "Start/Stop" again while the car is in "Park" to turn off the engine.
