Reset ecu on Nissan hardbody 2006 model.stoped it at home,now wont start.maybe for second or two.Nats light not working on dash. keys still opening doors,enjin turning,does not start.enjin check light


Give this a try.....Timing is not as critical with this method...no stop watch needed. Just count in your head...one-one thousand, two-one thounsand, etc, or usestop watch. The most critical step is step #3....wait 10 sec, instead of 7.



1. Ignition "ON", count to 3.

2. Depress/Release pedal 5 times...hard and fast.

3. Count to 10 (not 7!) and fully depress pedal

4. Count to 12 (SES should be blinking), release pedal

5. Count to 10, depress pedal

6. Count to 10, release pedal.

7. Turn off ignition, then 81377951893%26mt_id%3D570%26mpre%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com%252Fitm%252Flike%252F181377951893%26mid%3D446528%26sdc_id%3D%7Bsdc_id%7D&DealName=12v%20Electric%20Push%20To%20Start%20Engine%20Ignition%20Button%20With%20Red%20Led%20Light%20Up&MerchantID=446528&HasLink=yes&category=0&AR=-1&NG=1&GR=1&ND=1&PN=1&RR=-1&ST=&MN=msnFeed&FPT=SDCF&NDS=1&NMS=1&NDP=1&MRS=&PD=0&brnId=2455&lnkId=8070676&Issdt=150102050536&IsFtr=0&IsSmart=0&dlprc=19.99&SKU=181377951893">start engine.

I would check the ignition module then maybe the coil. Check with autozone or kragen they should test it for free.

We changed the fuel pump out because the car stopped running we checked it out and it was bad, the new one works and we have fuel to the out port of the filter but it will not start .we have spark but...


Not sure about this, but you might want to find your fuel "reset" button for the fuel pump. It's usually located in the trunk.

You say that it's getting fuel to AND from the filter (?); there might not be enough pressure to get to the injectors.

Try turning the key on for a about 5 seconds, but don't try to start it. This actuates the fuel pump.. Do no pump the gas pedal. Turn the key off, then try to start it.

If it doesnt start, turn the key on but don't try to start it. Pump the gas pedal 2-3 times, then try to start. You usually should not pump the pedal, but in this case it might just need a little "kicker" to get gas through the line.

If it doesn't start repeat this procedure. Hopefully it starts.

Note: Never crank a car over for more than 4-5 seconds. It's hard on the starter and will wear your battery down really fast.

My wife 1997 nissan sentra does not fire up. It acts like it wants to start but does not fire up all the way.


There could be many things that cost this. I will let you know what you can check. Make sure that you check all fuses. Next, make sure the engine is getting gas. You need to listen for the fuel pump to kick on when you turn the key. You can also spray engine cleaner in the carb. Start the car and if it starts for a second, you have a fuel problem. If the gas checks out, move to checking your timing belt. You should only have to remove just one cover to see the belt. Check the belt and make sure that it is not missing any any teeth. Check your spark plugs/coil wires for possible damage. Check the rotor and the distributor cap for damage. It could be the distributor itself, a cam sensor, and a crank sensor. I know it is a lot of stuff, but any one of these can cause your Nissan not to start. You really need a code from the computer. I know there is a lot of things to check but you need to start the elimination process. If gas checks out, move to timing belt, then distributor, cap, and rotor. Then sensors. The distributor on these cars seem to always go out. If you need anything else, just write me back. I am here to help you.
