I just got in my 2011 gtr with 12k on it and when i press the start button the light remains on the lock and the intelligent key is lit up on the dashboard. Any suggestions

It sounds like the battery in your key fob is low or dead. In my G37 there was a port that you can plug the key fob in to start the car when the battery is dead, not sure if the GT-R is the same but I believe so.

Yes there is a port under the steering wheel, towards the left. Plug it in there and you can start your car.

Not to offend you but is your foot on the brake? Is your cars battery dead? Is it fully in park? What year is your car, 2011? I have heard about the 09's having steering colum lock problems which may cause a problem when starting but I'm not 100% certain on this!

Weird I thought only the 09's were affected with that. At least it's a simple fix, hope the part shows up soon for you!

Interesting that this can occur on later model years. My '09 had this recall done, fortunately before it left me stranded somewhere.
