    I replaced the relays with a new one and moved it till I checked them all. The Main relay is it under the dash by itself? A bigger square one ?

    Is there a way to check it?

  • norman852 Apr 19, 2009

    I plugged in the diagnostic tool and a error code came up

    Does that mean its the ECM

    the only big fuse in the under hood junction box on the cover is a big silver one and the cover it says its the Blower

    Under the dash there is 3 relays in one spot Fuel Hazard and window but there is a bigger black fuse all by itself looks like the main relay had it checked and it was good

    the main relay will be located in the under hood junction block and it is a bigger square relay

  • taterbug726 May 11, 2010

    any trouble codes? how did you check relays? almost sounds like a main relay.

Check the main ignition fuse, Mine use to short out at the oxygen sensor. There was a bare wire and it cause me no end of grief till I found it. The fuses were also very expensive , so the less you can blow the better.

My car will not start it cranks but will not turn on. So far I have changed the crank sensor I also have no spark to coil packs or spark plugs Fuel pump does not turn on when I turn the key. What is the...

Begin by checking fuses. Ignition, efi, fuel pump fuses. When key turned to on, do the warning lights and gauges work? That verifies switch has power and is sending power out. With key on, the coil primary wire to coil packs should have voltage.

No spark and no gas? Fuel pump fuse good? I think I would use a test light or multimeter to check that fuel pump fuse terminal has power to it with key on. If that's good, pull connector off at fuel tank and check for a voltage signal on fuel pump wire when the engine is cranking-if good signal, fuel pump needs taken out for replacement or inspection. If no signal check that fuel pump relay has power to it. With key off, pull the relay and check that one terminal has power to it-the feed wire for the pump. If no power signal at all, check maxi fuses or fusible links for a failure.

Car won't start?
First thing would be to check all your fuses. Most fuse boxes are located under the driver side dash panel. Some cars do have an extra set of fuses on passenger side kick panel (foot area on door side)

If all fuses are good, then next thing would be to test your relays with an ohmmeter.

If all your your relays and fuses are good, you will want to check for fuel and spark. A car needs air, fuel and spark to run.

To check for spark, you can purchase and use a spark tester.
If you cannot obtain a spark tester, then the next best thing would be an ohmmeter. You can test the power coming from your coil packs or distributor depending on what you have. On distributorless vehicles (one with coil packs) the coil pack are attached to an ignition module. This module is powered by the Crankshaft Position Sensor. This sensor can be tested with an ohmmeter. The Crankshaft Position Sensor is the first thing to be tested if you have no spark in any cylinder. If you have spark in some cylinders but not all, then check the coil pack (1 pack per 2 cylinders).

If you have a distributor, test the coil that provides the spark.

If you have plenty of good strong spark, then the next step would be to check for fuel.
Fuel system consists of Fuel Tank, Fuel Pump, Fuel pump Relay, Fuel Filter, Fuel Pressure Regulator and finally carberator or injectors.

Fuel injected systems have a fuel rail. On the fuel rail is a test port for fuel pressure. If you have a fuel pressure tester you can test how much fuel pressure you have. Or you can place a rag over the valve and press it in to see if there is pressure. If not pressure, check that pump is running. You should hear it run for a few seconds when key is first placed in the ON position. If pump is not running, check fuses and pump relay.
If pump is running but fuel pressure is low, check for leaks, plugged fuel filter, or leaky injector.

Gets gas gets spark but don't start. new fuel

1. does it turn over? if so, strong, or weak? 2. did you replace the fuel filter? 3. coil packs, or distributor (pack(s) can be tested) if distributed check cap and rotor, replace coil, but first check starter relay - 4. Check all ignition fuses, starter fuse - (along with relay{above}) 5. Check all connections from battery - positive, negative etc.

the fuel pump fuse is fuse #1 15amp in the inside fuse box ( left side of dash behind fuse box cover ) the fuel pump relay is behind left side of dash ------- cavity #2 & #5 at the relay should have battery voltage in start and run cavity # 3 is the power out to fuel pump and cavity #1 is the ground that is turned on by the on board commputer.

Yes, there is fuel pump relay, which is generally located on the passenger side kick panel. But in your case, the fuel pump relay on 2002 model Xterra is indeed located under the dash around the steering wheel, but no you don't need to remove the cover just lay in floor and you can see it, it will slide off a bracket and you can remove and replace it.
Good Luck!

The age 1986 warrants a fuel pump replacement. Check for rodent damage in the fuel tank harness area when you install new pump. Also change the fuel filter.

Engine turns over fine , car will not start.

well the first part of your question i was all ready to tell you to put a new fuel pump in, now not so sure, there is a relay for fuel pump, can you hear pump cycle and relay click? relay under hood you will have to listen close they don't run long maybe a couple secounds, if you don't relay bad. if you do pump could be bad, do fuel pressure test pump could be weak. don't think sunroof and turn signals are related, but stranger things have happend.

Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.
