Further diagnosis showed that the ingnition switch was fine it turned out to be a faulty 02 sensor that was making the engine run extremely rich, ruining the spark plugs.

I put a new ignition switch on my 96 sentra. I cant get it to unlock what am i doing wrong?


A new ignition switch will also need a new key to compliment it. Your old key will not work with the new switch that's probably why the steering won't unlock.

I have a 1988 Nissan Sentra. When I turn the key


Your problem is definately not a relay. It sounds as if the starter contact in your ignition switch is bad. The solution is to replace the ignition switch.

Need to bypass ignition switch on nissan sentra


it should be underneath your car in between the firewall and the engine. Now you don't want to supply direct power to your starter because you'll end up frying it. However to just start the car once you've located the starter, get a long screwdriver with a plastic handle and connect the two wires with the screwdriver.

As for a long term fix, without investing the money to replace the necessary parts. You will need to attach a wire that can handle 12v to both wires on your starter separately. Then connect the other ends of both wires to a switch that can handle 12v, and mount that in your car somewhere. Then whenever you need to start your car just flip the switch on until the car starts then once it is started flip it back off.
I know this sounds like a lot but it is very doable with about $5 and a little bit of time.

I need to find the starter in a 96 nissan sentra and supply direct power to the solenoid to confirm that the ignitio switch is bad. who where is the starter and which wire do i supply the power to?


ase mechanic:
the starter is usually in front or back of engine. but always mounted next to the trans. to jump starter you have to apply voltage to small terminal, thats the ignition lead.
