Question about 2004 Nissan Quest

Quest head lights won't turn off

I just replaced the battery two months ago. But I hadn't been driving it since. I just went to start it and again it wouldn't start. I jumped it and it was ok though. Turned it off and a few hours later went to move it again and it started fine, but when I went to turn it off the head lights wouldn't turn off no matter what I did. There were also noises coming from the fuses under the hood. What is going on?!

The body computer controls the headlight relays based on input from the switches. There is a relay for high beam and one for low beam in a power distribution module in the engine compartment.
I don't know if the relays are available without buying the entire module. One of them could be stuck on.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and procedures to test the circuits.
In the mean time you should be able to pull the 50amp fuse for the headlights.

SOURCE: New battery and Xterra still won't start

There are a couple of immediate possibilities that come to mind. First - you could have fried the ECU/ECM (not sure what it's referred to by the NizMO folks) when you tried to jump the battery.
Second - the ECM/ECU needs to be reset when a new battery is installed.

When you attempt to start it, do you get anything at all? Any clicking, whirring, buzzing?

SOURCE: 97 quest wont start

I experienced similar problem, all electrical functions are working but engine does not start, the problem was the strat coil (I guess the right name is the "start up motor") which did not activate, so the shaft does not engage with the engine. In this case I did not heared any sound, only the fuel pump while turning the car key. I hit softly the coil body (start up motor) and then started the car. I had to replace the coil for a new one and the problem was permanently fixed (around 10 months already since then).
I Hope this help.
Regards

SOURCE: Several times our 95 Quest

Had the same problem with 1999 Quest - turns out that the distributor was going until it finally died. It stuttered andf kept shutting off when driven about 20 miles or so. Would start normally when cooled and off again when hot. But yours could be a different problem; not sure.

Your alternator is dead/dying. Nissan puts both of those lights on to tell you that the alternator isn't charging your battery.

SOURCE: Number one cylinder misfiring.

Check and replace your timing belt, although it is probably not the culprit, I have seen a tooth missing from a worn timing belt cause misfiring.

It is probably the Crankshaft Position Sensor, or the Camshaft Position Sensor causing the misfire.

Car won't start. it tries to turn over, but just doesn't .battery replaced several months ago so it's not that. The red "GEN" light pops up. Is that the generator signal? Manual doesn&


Interesting. They haven't used generators in over 50 yrs.
But yes that was the warning light for the generator.
If you have a volt meter that would tell you what the system is doing.
If the engine will not crank, and the battery is fully charged, you would need to check the connections at the starter for voltage and ground.
And the red warning lights would normally come on until the engine starts.

2003 mazda tribute, occasionally won't start. fuel pump replaced about 1 month ago. bad starter?


Many batteries may only last around three years. Check battery voltage at rest before starting. Any voltage in the low 12v range may be a sign of a faulty battery.If low voltage present, then perform a parasitic drain test:1) Disconnect battery POSITIVE terminal and connect ammeter in series, between battery positive terminal and positive lead.
DO NOT START THE VEHICLE!!

2) With all vehicle doors closed, alarm off, lights off, radio off, and all other accessories off, wait for around 20 minutes and then read the ammeter. A healthy system should read about 0.03 amps and little more. If reading more, then the vehicle could be suffering a parasitic amp drain, and you will need to locate this issue.


3) Reconnect battery when finished.


If no major parasitic drain present, yet low battery voltage then:


4) With vehicle started, check the voltage charge from the alternator. Connect voltmeter to battery terminals and take reading. A healthy system should be charging in the range of 14volts or down to around 13.5 volts. If reading around 12 volts only, then check and replace alternator.

Suddenly, No tail lights, brake lights, turns signal or back up lights At 83000 miles, 6 months ago, replaced head gaskets. 1 week later, service engine soon light came on. Tech said it was an oxygen...


just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan 3.8l v6 with about 146k. I stopped at a gas station and put gas in it (was at 1/2 tank) Went to start it and it started hard. Cranked for about 4 seconds before turning...


Have you ever put in the gasoline tank any fuel injector cleaner yet because your injectors which injects the fuel of gasoline, if the injectors are not injecting enough fuel into the piston chambers that the fuel injectors needs to be clean to allow enough fuel to come in so go buy injector cleaner at autozone and put the whole thing into the gasoline tank and then drive. Your fuel injectors are clogged or going serious bad on you so you might have to replace them as well but first try to put fuel injector cleaner and see.
