Nissan b13. i am geting all the lights for the ignition but it not tumbling the engine is working cause when i touch the starter with a positive wire it starts. i have checked all the fuse and the relays. all are good. i have deduced that the electrical cord to the starter is not geting power. i know that that there is a switch on the selector that causes the car to not start when it is not in park. so how do i go about removing that switch

SOURCE: My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not

If you look under the hood, there is a starter relay that might be the problem - but more common than that, - Do you have an alarm system of anykind? If so, It sounds alot like that is the problem, and they are notorious for causing "no start" problems as such - Unfortunatey, the wiring for these (even to just remove one) can be rather involved (as they often cut the starter wire to install an interrupt) so you may have to take it to an auto electric shop, or one that specializes in alarm systems - Also, dealers sometimes install special "electronic lot key systems" in all of their new cars, requiring that the "electronic key" must be present in the vehicle (along with the correct physical key) in order for it to start - I'd check for one of those systems as well - Hope that helps...

You need a wiring diagram before you start and get out your meter. How did you check out the relays? Remove them,power up the coils and read OHM's across all contacts or use the buzzer on the meter? You missed one The fact the solenoid is good doesn't mean the contacts inside aren't burnt and not applying current to the starter motor. We over look the easy stuff most of the time. Did you do a voltage drop test on the starter while trying to crank? A new solenoid may be all you need.

My Nissan maxima has 5 wires on ignition switch. how do I hotwire them to make it crank?

5 wires? I can't remember what the fifth wire would be, but you have a power-in wire - white with black stripe. The blue wire is an accessory wire- don't need that. To crank the engine without starting it, you would touch the power wire (white/black) to the start wire-the yellow with black stripe. That would engage the starter.

If you want to wire it to run, you tie the white/black power wire to the run or ignition wire-this is a black wire with white stripe. With those together, your dash gauges and warning lights will be on-the ignition system is ON. Then if you touch the yellow/black (start wire) to the power wire that is tied with the ignition wire, the engine should crank over and start.

I have a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder will not crank or start. I replaced the alternator, battery, and starter still no start no crank any ideas on what it could be

There are 2 cables connected to the starter the one from the battery (the thick one) and the one that feeds 12 volts from the ignition that is the thin one. Probably the one from the ignition is not sending 12 volts to the starter. You can get a test light to verify that or test with a piece of cable connect one end where the thin wire from the starter is connected and the other end briefly touch the positive post on the battery. If it cranks then is the ignition switch not sending 12 volts to the starter. Or get a test light (it looks like a screwdriver with a tip) connect the black wire to any ground and the tip on the connector have someone to crank it up if it lights, is good if not is a bad ignition. Don't know how to do it get an electromechanic. Hope this help

Nissan B13 sentra isn't starting.

All engines need 3 components: fuel, spark, and oxygen.
You'll need to check all 3 of these. start by checking your spark plugs to see if they aren't gapped or melted. Then check to make sure that fuel is reaching the engine. make sure that the fuel filter isn't clogged.
If you have the tools, run a vacuum pressure test on the lines.

Ignition switch damaged

You will need test light/probe to check what wire does what.First one wire will have permanant 12v,that is your base wire.Use that wire to test the others.the next wire to find is accesory wire,turn radio on and join to the 12v wire each wire until radio works.if when checking the starter tries to turn that is the starter wire.The 4th wire to test is ignition wire(power to coil)plug test light/probe into positive coil wire in the engine bay and it will light up when you join the right wire to your 12v power.That leaves 2 wires wich are usualy headlights dash etc.If you tag/label as you find each wires function it makes it easier to join to after maket key.To get vehicle to run join 12v to ignition/coil wire and touch starter wire to 12v until running then remove.When stopped do not leave 12v and coil/ignition wire joined as it will eventualy destroy ignition/coil.Good luck and hope it helps

Ignition switch? 1985 Nissan Pickup

I have the same truck I rebuilt, it, took 2 years. Its on car heres the link.

The problem is with the wire going to the starter, the relay telling the starter to work. it will get loose or caroded, check that first, it sounds like your problem. Good Luck!!
