Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX
I have a 1990 Nissan 300zx, When I turn the key it wont crank. I know it's not a battery problem, because everything else works. Right now I have it straight wired from the starter to the battery and it cranks fine, So Im assuming it's the clutch switch. How do I know for certain this is what it is.. and How would I go about fixing this?
Check your starter key switch on the steering column.
the contact for the starter is wired to the key selector.
you need the Factory Service Manual fot trace out the wire. In general, the starter wire is red, the current runs from the battery to the key switch then to starter motor.
If you have wired from stater to the battery directly, you are bypassing the key switch.
The clutch switch is mounted on the top side of the transmission near the converter housing. again, you need to located the FSM in order to figure out exactly where it is.
