Question about 2003 Nissan Se R

1 Answer

Nissan Vanette (Diesel 2.3)-engine turns over,but does not start.

I just got the vanette back from a Nissan garage service, and it now doesn't start at all, although the engine turns over. All info lights on the dash light up as normal while attempting to start it. There are clouds of unburnt diesel that eminate from the van that smell of fuel. Why won't it start though?
Thanks for any answers.

    Hi tech17,

    Do you mean I have to pay them (again) to fix a fault that my van never had, and that looks like they introduced while doing the yearly service?
    Thanks for your answer

    PS. I've already paid for the service!

1987 nissan vanette has no parking lights or dash lights. Headlights etc work ok. All fuses ok

i had a friend of mine bring me his car just last week for the same problem.he said he checked all the fuses,but he didnt know that on the passenger side there was another fuse box.i replaced the burned out fuse i found in this fuse box and everything has been working fine ever most likely you will just have to look a little more for another fuse box or try under the hood by the battery for a fuse/relay box also.a few more places to look would be in back of the drivers and passengers kick panels. hope this info helps you. take care and good luck, manny
