2013 Sentra with a intermittent no start problem. Starts fine for a month or two and then dead. Battery dated Feb 2019. Gonna have alternator and battery checked tomorrow. Perhaps it’s a defective brake switch (it’s a push button) but in the past when I’ve jumped it it starts right up. If the switch is causing a no start it wouldn’t respond to a jump, would it?

The first thing that I do in these situations is to thoroughly clean the battery posts and terminals until you achieve bare metal. Sometimes you get an oxide scale that is not very noticeable but will still cause intermittent starting problems. Good Luck.
