Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

I recently replace the crank shift sensor, but

I recently replace the crank shift sensor, I have a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5s but apparently I still have the same problem! Each time I start the car it revs for quite some time before finally turning on. Also the car turns off while Im driving. I've been told it could be the fuel pump or fuel filter. What do you guys think it might be?

Switch on your car but don't start it, let it stay in that position for a few minutes. after start your car, if starts without problems then your problem is your fuel pump. but if problem is still there then it could be your fuel filter or timing of your car.

Nissan altima 2005 not shifting or showing speed

The speed sensor is probably disconnected or the wiring was damaged. The CPU needs this input to demand shifts.

I have a 2005 nissan altima se 3.5 i have replaced the ecm the cam sensor and the the box by the battery and it still won't crank it will turn over but thats all what could be wrong.

Is it "crank no start"? Or "no crank"? What is the diagnostic results? Tell us DTCs please. And don't forget if you replace ECM you will have to learn immobiliser,otherwise it wont start.

I changed the CKP sensor on my 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5L and it ran for about five seconds and it cut off. Now, it only cranked over but would not start as it did before.

This type of sensor usually requires computer re-calibration!! This is only done by the dealer!! Why was the crank sensor replaced?

the cp sensor is big problem for nissan. you can buy one at auto zone for $35 and with a little time and patience you can replace it. i think you might have a crank position issue. the key has nothing to do with it. just bad timing

Just bought a 2005 nissan altima and when start the car it usally does not start on the first turn of the key (its is usually the secons) and it is not every time but almost all the time.Put it this...

If its a crank no start, there issues of crank/cam sensors that go bad (Nissan has new updated ones) also fuel pump might be bad. Rarely a starter issue on the altimas

1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.

Nissan altima starting problem

i think replacing the sensor is in order. i know all car makes have "recalibration updates" for the ecm and should be done, but have rarely fixed vehicles on just that alone. and your symptoms suggest the sensor could be intermittently bad
