Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.also check instrument voltage stabilizer.

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan Maxima won't start, not battery.

You may have bad solenoid, starter/battery/solenoid connections, or gound.

Check voltage at starter solenoid when somebody turns key to start. That is where the starter switch, or relay, sends the voltage to pull in the solenoid coil through small wire. I think the solenoid is on the starter for this car, but it may be separate. Autozone has an excellent web site with car-specific repair guides and instructions. You should see 12V at solenoid every time the key is turned to start.

Check big power cable to starter that runs direct from the battery for tight connections. If you have a separate solenoid, then another big cable runs from it to starter. A loose or bad connection could be the culprit. Also check starter mount bolts. They need to be tight for a good solid electrical ground. You also need good ground from frame to engine. Its a long shot, but sometimes the ground straps come loose or burn. You can easily check this by measuring resistance between engine block and negative battery terminal. It should be zero or darn near zero (less than 1 ohm ?).

The solenoid is really a heavy duty swich to handle the high amp load to the starter. It works by a coil that pulls in the big switch. The coil operates from the starter switch and needs onlyt low current and small wire. If the coil wires burn up or there is a bad connection, it won't work. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000 nissan pathfinder back doors will not open

Are the doors manual or auto? Are your door lock actuators engaging when you hit the open/close button? Did you check all your fuses to make sure there all good? If every thing is checking good, and the door wont open from inside or outside, then your problem is : Inside your door are a series of rods, one goes from your inner door handle straight to the door lock assembly (it is dislocated from opening the door roughly) and one goes from the actuator to the door lock assembly which I believe also is dislocated, only way to fix this problem is to weasel your way through the edge of the door panel with a very long screwdriver (16-20") and a light and try to trigger the mechanism directly on the lock to open. This is alittle tricky and might require a trained technician to perform because with the door closed your panel might not come off which will raise the risk of destroying your door panel, in the long run paying a little money could save you a lot more if you break that panel!

My 2000 Nissan Pathfinder just stopped abruptly after losing power/current. The engine did not start after several attempts. The distributor does not produce current when ignition is done. Please help me...

Could be many things but start by having it coded by a diagnostics monitor. Sounds like your ECM (electronics control module) or the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) may be faulty. good luck :)

The engine loses power and keeps stalling. I have had three different diagnoses. One mechanic says the air flow sensor needs changing, another says the distributor needs changing, a third mechanic says the...

After it stalls check to see if you have fuel pressure. I've seen fuel pumps run for a while and then just quit, when they cool off they work again. If the pressure is good then check your ignition componets or have a friend crank the engine over while you check for spark. If your ignition componets check out ok it could be the ecm (computer). I have a local 'pull-a-part' salvage yard where I can get computers for $10 bucks. Sometimes $10 can save a lot of headaches. I don't see how the mass air flow sensor or distributor would produce these symptoms.
