Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Nissan Sentra 1996

Sometimes when I try and start my car nothing happens. I've had everything in the engine checked and it's all ok. I think the ignition lock may be stopping the key from turning all the way? Does the 1996 sentra have a wheel lock or lock on the ignition or is this still probably the starter.

    1997 Nissan Sentra that sometimes will not do anything when you turn the ignition. When you come back a couple of hours latter, it turns over fine. Whats the deal?

Starter makes grinding noise when starting car. Sometimes it does no engage to start the car. Have replaced the started twice in the last year on my 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE Auto Trans.


check the condition of the teeth on the ring gear of the engine. They can become burred and cause improper engagement of the starter pinion. Check the adjustment of the pinion action.

My 2002 nissan sentra will crank but won't start. i've replace the ecm/ecu, the cam/crank sensor or position, checked the fuel pump/pressure, and it still is doing the same thing. sometimes it


I assume you checked the fuel pressure and it is normal.
Are the spark plugs getting spark when it fails to start ?
Are you getting injector pulse from the computer ?
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?

Electrical, the car won't start and windows do not work.


Try removing the battery terminals ,and clean them,and the battery post to where they are shiny,then replace them back on the battery,good,and tight.If this does not help,have the battery checked,If the battery is good,and you are sure of this,tap on the starter with a hammer ,but not hard,while someone tries to start it,if it staRTS,REPLACE THE STATER.

Unusual starting problem, Nissan sentra '96 GXE 179K


Probably not because the tool reads if the injector is getting pulsesw, not if it is sealing correctly when off. I'd try to take a look at the spark plugs to see if any have fuel on them after you crank once in no-start. "On the floor" likely would take longer because injectors are adding fuel while you are trying to remove it.

2008 nissan sentra has occasional starting issues. this has happened 4 times since we bought the car. car runs fine, sometimes will not start when key is turned. everything is dead....no lights inside, no...


Could be bad battery or Somthing going on with the main fuse box.  Another thing to check is your ground wires.  If they are loose, you can not complete the circut.

Wont stsrt


sounds very much like the coolant temp sensor
, this tells the pcm that the engine is cold, sometimes they fail and tell the pcm the car is at -40 degrees, the pcm then tries to compensate by keeping the injectors open for too long flooding the engine. the part is inexpensive, and normally easy to replace. It can be checked with a scan tool, or a volt/ohms tester,
