    yes originally when it wasn't starting before i replaced the battery its was making all kinds of clicking noises that continued even after I stopped trying to crank it. After replacing the battery it now just make a slight clicking sound that is coming from a box located behind the battery. Could it be that it needs a new starter swith or should I focus directly on starter. Im out of town and am very nervous to just let any mechanic start fixing my nissan thats why i checked here first. thanks

I just replaced the coil pack on 2002 f150 4.2l 6 cylinder and it won't start....not getting any spark but it shows that its getting power on the voltage meter


crankshaft position sensor possibly . The red an lite green wire is the B+ (battery voltage ) The other three wires are control from the engine computer . Do you have a automotive electrical test light ? You can test for control by hooking up test light (Clip end) to battery positive terminal an have someone crank the engine while you touch the point end to each of the control wires . The test light should flicker , if not the crank sensor is more then likely bad >

85 Toyota Pick Up 22R (carb) not getting spark


Sounds like a crank sensor to me. I believe this will be found just below your bottom pulley [ crank pulley] . This is responsible for getting power to the coil. These are sometimes hard to get out . I just broke it off and used a socket. I don\'t know how you can test this sensor unless you have a wire test kit. I am not positive on this, but I\'m pretty sure. It sure sounds like it. Let me know how you make out.

This morning tried to start my 03 sierra 1500, i opened the driver door cab lights came on, put key into the ignition turned the key and the lights went out and the truck would not even crank nothing....


Try jump starting it. I suspect your battery is dead. After time they don't hold a charge as deep as they once did. Have it load tested to verify. Your lights and other options don't draw nearly what your starter needs.

When starting the truck sometimes it clicks like it needs a battery then the second time its cranks.


Usually this points to these issues:
1) Bad battery cables-check by testing voltage drops across posts. Also get the battery checked at autozone.

2) Dying Starter-Usually caused by worn contacts these can be rebuilt quite easily.
Check for voltages at starter terminals, battery and solenoid (measure with terminal unplugged) while key is in crank.

3)Bad ignition switch-if 12 volts is not being send to the solenoid at crank

Soon you wont be able to start it:

I have a 2002 Sierra Truck. The battery is good.


Do you have crank no start?
Do you have no crank no dash lights nothing?

Items to check out Battery and battery cables (Load test battery and make sure cables are clean and tight especially the B+ cable off the starter).
Listen to the cranking speed of the starter. Does it sound normal or slow? Depending on what you hear you may want to do a starter current draw test or have a shop do it for you.
If all of the above are a-ok then move onto fuel and ignition checks. AT THIS POINT YOU SHOULD HAVE CRANK NO START.
When you put the key into the ignition and turn it to on position do you hear the fuel pump buzz?
No buzzing sound ... you could have either a bad fuel
pump or relay. Either way the vehicle is going to a shop for further diagnosis and repair.

Unscrew a spark plug attach it to its wire and ground its electrode . Crank engine and look for spark.
No spark! Now check plug wires and coil. How? Use shop manual for correct testing procedure .
If no spark is found coming from the coil then check B+ coming from battery to coil and ignition module.
Lastly not likely , ignition switch should not be left out of the equation. Your gonna need the shop manual for that test procedure. Good luck

Check the fuel heater and the intake air heater.
Your injection pump or your injectors may be getting weak
There may also be a leak in the fuel system that is allowing air to enter it.

2005 nissan frontier crew cab won't start


Make sure you have 12 volts from the positive side of the battery to the starter. Check the small wire on the starter solenoid and make sure you have 12 volts when cranking engine. If voltage is correct, the starter is bad
