Question about 2002 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

No power to car at all... completely dead

I got home from work and parked the car. i went outside and opened the car door the dome light came on then when i put the key in the ignition to start it and all the lights shut off and had no power at all. no lights to dash, dome or headlights. it doesn't click or anything. sort of like there isn't even a battery in the car. i knew it wasn't the starter cause i replaced that just a little while ago, so i replaced the batter checked all the fuses and made sure all the connections were tight. still nothing.... any ideas on what it could be. i thought it might have been a bad connection.

    I have a 1994 altima that does not start, turn key, nothing happens, like I didn't even turn the key...no lights, no noises nothing....

    I had just got done driving the car 5 miles to work, and it just shut off while I was driving.

    It has been doing this intermittently, but would start up after a little while sometimes, this time it's not. I have the oil leak in the distributor, I already changed the seal, but I think the camshaft sensor is faulting because it was sending codes before this happened.

    Battery was changed a year ago, I changed plug wires last week, and put a new fuel injector in as well last week. I noticed my black ground coming off the battery attaches below my distributor and is saturated in oil. Also my key would sometimes fall out when driving, does this indicate a bad ignition switch. Oh yeah, and right before my car dies, the wipers start wiping a couple times. Really weird... I know I have multiple issues, but the one boggline my mind is I turn the key and absolutely nothing happens now. Does this indicate ignition area?? Or bad ground ??

It's going to be hard to pinpoint that - with age and time, the wastegate and related parts can start to wear out, so that may need to be repositioned to keep the proper boost level. I know your car comes with a boost gauge, but do you have an aftermarket one? They're much better - the OEM boost gauge is not accurate enough to do much other than tell you whether you're in boost or vacuum. With an aftermarket gauge, you'll know what pressure you're actually making. With that, you can tweak the nut so that the wastegate opens at the proper point. Or you could get an electronic boost controller (used GReddy PRofec II units are available on eBay for less than $150) and really give yourself accurate boost control.

SOURCE: I turn the key and

My Nissan Primera EGT (1993 Reg'd) has an immobiliser, which was causing a similar problem. Turned on ignition and nothing. The immobilizer was faulty to the starter motor, so we disconnected it from the starter and left the immobilizer on the fuel line. Starts now, no problem and the immobilizer would still stop the potential thieves as they'd have no idea without the immobilizer key why the engine will no more than start then stutter to a big full stop!!.
The 240SX is probably a more modern Nissan but I bet there's an immobilizer built into it somewhere. You may need to take it to a Nissan expert or Dealer to check out. It's almost definitely something weird like an immobilizer or maybe the starter motor's blown it, but then you'd have heard the graunching noises that starter motors make when they're about to clap out, they don't usually just go. There may also be some disconnection of wires to the alternator, which amplifies the spark to the engine, but the starter motor would still turn, your engine just wouldn't fire up with the too weak spark. So if nothing moves, it's most likely an immobilizer or possibly (but unlikely) a sudden death starter motor.

SOURCE: 2003 Mitsubish Eclipse GST Spyder alarm goes off for no reason at all.

I HAVE A SPYDER ALSO. ALTHOUGH, I HAVE NEVER HAD THAT ISSUE, THE ONLY WAY I COULD GET THE ALARM TO STAY OFF WITHOUT GOING OFF AGAIN IS BY INSERTING THE KEY INTO THE DRIVER'S SIDE DOOR. THAT RESETS IT PROPERLY.

SOURCE: Tail light, backup light and dashboard light will not light up??

your tail light relay is bad. if you swap the headlight relay and the tail light relay, i bet your tail light will work and the head lights won't. then you'll know for sure its the relay.

When you park your car, be sure your indicator switch is in the central position, Dome light is activated by a depression switch on the inside door frames, one of them is faulty

Headlights do not go off so battery went dead. Also dome light does not respond to drivers door


Never rely on the door switch to shut off the lights.
That is always an extremely unreliable system on any car.
Whenever you shut a car off, turn off everything. That includes radio, AC, fan, etc. Otherwise you are putting a great strain on your battery when you next try to start it.

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dr...no dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...


this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

Recetnly purchased a used 2003 Suzuki Aerio from dealership. Car was running fine. Then suddenly would not start after being parked at work. The interior lights went dim when door opened, and battery...


i would say thats a good idea, if you got an extended warranty! from most of the symptoms i would say it sounded like your alternator was hooped. the clicking from the dash...if it's coming from the engine side it sould be your solinoid which clicks back and forth to open and close the circuit to send the signal for the started to crank when you turn the key. why it would be on when everythings is off and then shut off when you open the door i don't know. sorry i couldn't more (if any) help

The interior lights and running board lights stay


Check your DOME light switch. There are 3 positions. Completely OFF even with doors open, ON with doors shut so you can read while parked, NORMAL for the lights to come on only when the doors are open.

Your headlight switch will also turn everything ON inside when it is turned completely to one side. Just twist this switch a little towards center if this is on.

No dome light on tacoma


The dome light gets 12 volt battery power at all times. The door switch, when the door is opened, allows the current to flow to ground, and completes the circuit. The door switch allows the ground to be made. Measure for 12 volts at the wiring connector, and measure for direct short at the ground wire, with the door open. The Ground wire is white with a black tracer.
