Question about 1993 Nissan 300ZX
My car will not start I just put a alternator in the car now the car will not start now I'm thinking about changing the crank sensor, do you think that will make it start?
It sounds like you replaced the alternator because it was not charging the battery.
(Although no alternator can charge a shorted battery).
So now after replacing the alternator, the battery is still dead and can't be expected to charge until the engine runs for awhile. Well....the car starts and cranks from only the battery, not the alternator.
You could jump start the car with jumper cables from another vehicle to give the alternator a chance to do its job.
I suggest charging the battery from a stand-alone battery charger (about $50 any auto parts store, etc ).
You have not said anything yet that verifies that you have tested the battery.
If your battery is more than 2 or 3 years old, you may want to replace it.
They typically don't last much longer than that.
(By the way, I've never heard of a "crank sensor")
