it should be underneath your car in between the firewall and the engine. Now you don't want to supply direct power to your starter because you'll end up frying it. However to just start the car once you've located the starter, get a long screwdriver with a plastic handle and connect the two wires with the screwdriver.
As for a long term fix, without investing the money to replace the necessary parts. You will need to attach a wire that can handle 12v to both wires on your starter separately. Then connect the other ends of both wires to a switch that can handle 12v, and mount that in your car somewhere. Then whenever you need to start your car just flip the switch on until the car starts then once it is started flip it back off.
I know this sounds like a lot but it is very doable with about $5 and a little bit of time.

I had this question initially. However, the Nissan Sentra (starting in 2007) has an electric Power Steering. It DOES NOT need any power steering fluid. The electric power steering is suppose to give you better fuel efficiency and lower maintenance cost.

SOURCE: 1997 sentra ignition locked
With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

Two ways...Nissan puts the key code on a piece of white tape and sticks it on the inside of the glove box door. However, someone could have pulled it off at some point. Check there first. Secondly, the original owners paperwork should have the key code on it. If you are not the original owner, or do not have access to that person, but know the dealer where the car was originally sold, they would have the paperwork on file, they probably do not have a way to cross reference the serial #, so you would likely have to know the original owners name in order for them to look up the archived deal and get the number from the paperwork. The only other suggestion I might have is to get a locksmith to cut you a key. Good luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful! Check the glovebox!
