Question about Nissan Pickup
I have Nissan Primera 2001. When I turn the key on I can hear sounds of relays but engine doesn't start. no sounds at all except those of relays. Battery seems to be ok. Any reason why? A little history. 4 days ago I went on a drive and parked my car at destination and turned it off. 5 mins later - it won't start - won't make any sound. 30 mins later it won't make any noise on first attempt. on second it would make some noise as if battery is weak. 3rd attempt it starts with pressing accelerator. Yesterday - it made some noises as if battery is down on first attempt. on second and later no sound at all except the ones like a relay would trun on and off. same behaviour today. Any idea why it won't start

SOURCE: car engine will not crank
on the starter there is a big battery cable and a small signal. wire connect a test light to the signal wire and try to crank the engine. if the light comes on then you will need a starter. be sure you have good connections first good luck.bye the way the light should only be on when you hold the key in crank pos.if the light is on all the time you are on the wrong wire.

SOURCE: Hard to start warm engine
Sounds like you have a problem with your fuel injectors, either they are working to much or not enough once they get warm....
Take it to a shop ant tell them you want the injectors tested.

If it intermittently starts, the battery/charging systems are ok and you hear the relay click, I would suspect a starter going bad. When the engine won't start have some one hold the key to the run position (as if you were cranking the engine) and tap lightly on the starter housing with a metal hammer. Be careful not to hit any of the wires on the starter. If the engine starts cranking and or starts, the starter is going bad. Chances are the armature is burn't or the brushes are worn out. It is usually cheaper just to put in a re-man starter then trying to rebuild it. And since the car is relatively new, chances are you won't be able find parts for it. Now a word of caution here, when you are tapping on the starter be careful not to be next to any moving parts (pulleys, belts, etc) since the engine may start. Also another thing you could check for is loose power cables. You might want to try this before checking the starter because it's easier. Try wiggling the battery connections, follow the negative to ground and wiggle and do the same thing with the positive cable to the starter. You should not be able to wiggle the connections at all. If you can the connections will need to be either tightened or the connector replaced. This should solve your problem. You could also try swapping your relays around and see if this fixes it (just because a relay clicks dosen't mean its necessarily working right.
