Hi,just had same fault on nissan terrano2 97 model diesel.Checked all conections at battery and cleaned terminals,checked fuses uner bonet and under dash,found 20amp fuse for meter blown,changed still no good.Removed plastic covers under dash to check for broken wires or connectors unplugged or loose.All looked ok,swapped four blue relays around under fuse box,and re checked faulty 20 amp fuse.Had lights and power back,engine starting.Had turned ignition on and off several times to do tests.Not sure if it was a poor contact at something I changed or maybe an imobiliser issue.Working for now but not sure what the fault was.Used to work for mazda and jra years ago but have not worked much on the nissan so not up to speed,seems like a nice car though.Any one else had this?

The car is a C class diesel automatic which will not start, despite charging the battery and refitting it. the dash lights are intermittent and electronic key will not move past position 2


You basically answered your own question. your problem would be the ignition switch.. If you have push button start, this would be different. It would have to go on a scanner to find the problem. Or at least where to start looking.

Theft security problem


Usually it means the computer is not accepting the chip in your key.
It can be the key, the sensor in the lock cylinder, or something in the security module or computer.
You might try another key or lock and unlock the driver's door with the key.

The van wont start, no lights on dash except for the seatbelt and open door light. when you turn the key it makes a click in the dash. the battery is fully charged and the terminals are tight.


How do you know the battery is good, fully charged may not be the case if the battery has a failed internal post connection. Have the battery load tested at a shop or a parts store.

Turn key will not start battery is good


Make sure the connections and the cables are good.No corrosion on cables.If the lights in the dash flicker this is usually a sign that the battery is not good or it is not making good contact.Have the charging system and battery load tested.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Will not start or come out of park. no lights and dash board dims when key is turned? battery has fully charge.


Using a voltmeter, check that voltage is identical to battery volts at the other end of cables. Check across the battery terminals, across connectors on battery, between negative post on battery and connection at starter, between positive post and end of negative cable then from postiive post and block. Wherever you find a variation, clean and re-check reading.If this does not help, there are sub system teststs you can do as well but I believe you will likely locate your problem before getting into that.

Engine no crank dash lights go crazy when key is on


it sounds like your alternator quit charging and then your battery died. do you have a battery charger? if so, charge the battery and try to start it. If it starts but the charging light is on, you likely need an alternator. Most auto parts stores can test it for you.
