2004 nissan sentra won't start, battery ok, just keeps turning over


Check for spark on any spark plug wire. If you have a strong blue spark, the ignition system is probably good, so then check for gas-is the fuel pump turning on for 2 seconds with key on, not start? It should and that will put gas up to the engine. If you don't hear the pump turn on briefly to pressurize the line and fuel rail (where the injectors are), you will need to troubleshoot the fuel pump circuit. Check the fuel pump fuse-probably under the hood in a fuse/relay block.

97 Nissan Sentra will start but won't stay started without foot on the pedal what could be the problem


could be the air mass sensor or a fuel delivery problem eg, fuel pump or filter blocked up.

also check for tears in air pipes, or poor seals around the air intake and air box.

1996 Nissan Sentra doesn't have sparks


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to my understanding, 1995 to 1997 Sentras share the same ECU (except the '97 1.6L). Below ECU pin configuration may be of help.

Additionally, depending on the regional version that you have, the '96 Sentra may be sharing the same electronic ignition with an Altima. If so, this might interest you.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
