Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

Starting problems with 1996 nissan sentra

I have replace the starter and tested the neutral safety switch and the battery has tested good, when I turn the key on nothing happens, it acts like the battery is dead. I was able to get it to work one time by holding the key on and moving the gear shifter several times and it started so I have replaced the neutral safety switch and this did not resolve my issue.

Thanks in advance for any support to my problem.

    It was not the starter relay, I bought a new one and replaced it and it still did not resolve the problem. I am still tracing out the wiring it could be another type of relay but I am not sure which one, and suggestions. Thanks

2008 ford focus no start. neutral safety switch location?


Do you know how your starting system works ? Do you know about the starter relay ? All power comes to an through the starter relay . The park neutral safety switch is on the transmission. VEHICLE RELAYS Testing from the relay base If you have a anti-theft system problem the engine computer - PCM will not let the starter engage . Go to www.bbbind.com for a free wiring diagram of the starter circuit on your vehicle .

Why would my car not be starting. I have good battery all other power works inside it is in park and also have tried to start in neutral. Acts like dead switch will not crank over..


If you know the battery is good and the connections are good... the next step is to check for power at the white/pink small wire on the starter solenoid just under the oil filter. You should get power there when you turn the ign. switch to crank mode. If you get power, you need a starter. If no power, then neutral safety or ign switch or wiring issue

How do i test a 1996 sunfire starter switch?


Problem could be in the neutral safety switch.
The small wire on the starter solenoid gets power from the key switch, but it goes thru the neutral safety switch to prevent you from cranking the engine in gear.

Trouble starting, will not turn over all the time. replaced starter and still having that problem, also has new battery. so now what is next?


Make sure the connection at the starter is good, ( the small wire). if connections are good even battery connections at battery then i would check out the neutral safty switch, next time it doesnt start try to put in neutral and see if it starts, if it does then switch is bad, i would start with these tests,

What is the purpose of the Neutral Switch?


The neutral safety switch prevents accidental starting in gear.

This switch can cause the issue, but commonly it fails less often than a starter..

To test, I suggest rigging a test light, one end to ground and one end to the solenoid actuating lead on the starter solenoid. If the light lights, and no starter actuation, you know power is getting through the neutral safety switch.

Also try altering the exact loction of the shifter, foot on brake, try moving lever slighty through park and neutral, and see if that affects the starting, These switches can come out of adjustment....

Starting problem


check the switch that the clutch actuates.your ignition sounds like it works.some cars also must be in neutral if yours does the wires for this will plug into the transmission.you can bypass the switch at that point.

Will not start, just clicks when you turn key


If it is a single click, it could also be the neutral-safety switch. Turn ignition switch on, put foot on the brake, put trans in neutral - try to start.
