Have you checked to see if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when the engine fails to start ?

SOURCE: car wont start just keeps trying to turn over

car is going into limp mode or you have a issue with the stock sercurity system. You will need a consult II to find out why the ses light is comming on. There is also a manual procedure but you have to count the light blinking in a pattern. its easier to go to auto zone and have them check the code.

SOURCE: 95 pathfinder crank but not starting

check every connection on the positive battery terminal(all the small harnesses as well for corrosion....there is a small wire....if not connected the engine will not run........check the coil for spark and check fuel pressure, if both are good then its a bad omen......pull the timing belt cover loose and and check to be sure the timing belt isn't broken....if it is broken then you can guarantee all of the valves are bent....your looking at alot of machine work.... unless you happen to have another set of vg30 heads laying around.... i would recommend professional installation... the mechanics of a vg30 aren't for the timid

SOURCE: 2001 Pathfinder screeches on start

Remove the belt and check all pulleys for smooth operation. any binding at all is amplified when belt tension is applied. also check the belt itself...If it's glazed or dried out, it can be noisy.

My 2001 Pathfinder intermittently won't crank (turn key, radio and AC come on but no engine crank). If I push/pull gear shift, it starts - is there a sensor to make sure its in Park to start that may


Many cars do have a switch on the gear shift to ensure it will not start if not in park, turn on the reverse lights when in reverse, turn on the camera when in reverse, park lights, etc. Here is an article that mentions it a little bit, http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/transmission-drivetrain/154-0805-1987-2001-jeep-cherokee-neutral-safety-switch/.

Which is the problem, no fire, or no crank. No fire means to spark to engine, but engine turns over fine. No crank means engine won't turn over when key is turned. I'm assuming engine will not turn over. Three most common problems. 1. Weak battery (get tested at auto parts store). Will hold charge for short time once started, but loses it when sits overnight. 2. Bad starter. Possible but not likely, still not out of the question. 3. Bad battery cables. This is an easy test. Take a pair of jumper cables and bypass the battery cables by connecting black side of jumper cable to "-" of battery and block of engine, and red of jumper cables to "+" of battery and (tap) Battery terminal post on starter...engine should turn over. Ensure you take all safety precautions to prevent car from moving during this procedure. Best of luck resolving this problem.

Due to part availability, this recall is being conducted in three phases. Phase 1 will consist of 1998-1999 vehicles, phase 2 will consist of 2000 vehicles; and phase 3 will consist of 2001 vehicles. When sufficient parts are available to notify customers of 2000 and 2001 vehicles, you will be notified and will receive a new initiation report.
Recall - Ignition Circuit DefectCondition
General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1998 model year Buick Skylark; 1998-2001 model year Chevrolet Cavalier; 1998 model year Oldsmobile Achieva; 1998 model year Pontiac Grand Am; and 1998-2001 model year Pontiac Sunfire vehicles. If the engine fails to start and the driver holds the key in the "start" position for an extended period, high current flows through the ignition switch, and sometimes produces enough heat to melt internal switch parts. If the switch is damaged, a fire could occur in the steering column, even with the engine off and the key removed. The fire could spread to the interior of the car, which could injure occupants of the car or cause damage to adjoining structures.

Will it restart? Does it crank but not fire? Does it do anything? Check the timing belt to see if its broken. Without a Distributor rotor you will have to do a compression test to check this.

2001 Sebring won't start


I had same problem when I had a plain copy of the key made.
There's a proximity chip in the factory key or something, but the plain copy would not work. Engine would crank, then immediately stop. I didn't need the extra key bad enough to spend $80+ at the dealership.
