    need more info, what sensor has been replaced? have you cleaned your wires or looked for corrosion further down the positive and negative wires? does this only happen in the cold? have you checked your battery, has anyone done a parasitic load test.

Next time, before you try to start it, cycle your key to on,(not start),then off, then, on, then off. Now try to start it. Did that help ? If it did, have your fuel filter changed if not done recently. If it didnt, have it scanned for trouble codes, and either have it fixed or record them & get back to us.

Hi, I have a Nissan Altima 95. Had a starter problem. I live in colder climate region of Alberta, canada. I purchased a used starter from a parts seller in Texas. I replaced the starter in July of 2009....


Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings

My 2002 nissan altima will not start


If its because of the cold weather try taking out the battery and letting it thaw out for a day or two , also you may want to buy some Heet for your car to pour in the gas if you get it running again it helps the gas to not freeze

1993 Nissan Altima will crank but won't start - sometimes - altitude issues?


The system is not affected by altitude in this way, the thing you need to check is fuel pressure, this may be pump related.
