Nissan Primera doesn't start

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.

SOURCE: intermittent no start. Battery/charging system ok

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.

2002 hyundai Santa fe will not start. I turn key and starter turned for 3 seconds then stopped and now when i turn key NOTHING. I hear a circuit sound in back of car when i turn key but no other sound. ...


Definitely a starting system problem. That sound you hear in the back is the fuel pump.

Starting system circuit components (besides wiring harness)
1. Ignition Key Switch - closes the starter relay control circuit to energize the relay and close the contacts inside the relay (you can check this by locating the relay in the underhood fuse/relay box and have a friend turn the key while you listen/feel if the relay 'clicks'
2. Starter Relay or its Contacts
3. Starter Solenoid - pushes/pulls the starter gear into the engine's flywheel ring-gear and its contacts close to provide battery power to the starter itself.
4. Starter itself - poor brush contact with the armature's commutator will prevent the starter to spin/turn

If you are 'Electrically' talented, you can check to see if you're getting battery power to the starter solenoid by using a simple 12 volt test light/bulb. Connect one lead to the starter solenoid terminal and the other to chassis/engine ground and have a buddy turn the ignition key - if the light turns 'ON', then you know that particular circuit is OK but the starter solenoid is not energizing to push the starter gear into the flywheel ring-gear to turn the engine over. If it doesn't, the problem is elsewhere (wiring, starter relay, starter relay control circuit, etc).

You can have a qualified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose your vehicle. OR, you can Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, illustrations, etc.

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Nissan announces recall of 747,000 trucks, SUVs in U.S. - Oct. 28, 2010. Nissan had a problem with defective relays. Faulty relays in the engine control module in Nissan vehicles cause engine performance issues including rough idle, engine stalling or inability to start vehicle. Call your local dealer and see if your vehicle is under this recall, you will need to supply your VIN number. If so, they will repair the problem at no cost.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

Nissan primera is not starting and not sending diesel in engine


does it crank? if so don't try to start it. turn the key to the on position and listen carefully. if you hear a buzz then it's not the gas pump. it could be your regulator or your filter may be clogged. but that depends on the cranking and the pump
