    So after being annoyed I re installed my factory radio and it still wouldn't work. Whenever I hit a bump it will go in and out. I tried going to the wires and jiggleing them to see if I could find which was causing the problem but nothing! I just want to see where I can go to get this fixed. I need a professional.

Go to where you purchased the aftermarket unit as most shops have professional fitters on the premises to fit it after purchase.

dash boar is electric. the fuses for that are on almost under the dashboard. like in fron of the drivers left leg there is a cover you have to pull off. but you may need to replace the cluster.

If the starter fluid worked for a little and the engine died again, it may be some of your filters. Check the air and fuel filters and replace them if they are dirty or haven't been replaced in a long while. This is the most common reason a car won't start.

Another idea is the engine may have been flooded. If you have a fuel injected engine, don't pump the fuel when trying to start it. The fuel pump primes the engine all on it's own. If the engine is already flooded, push the fuel pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there while you try to start the engine. This bypasses the priming and opens the air to blast any unburned fuel out of the cylinders.

Check to make sure you are getting spark with an inline spark tester (at auto parts stores) and if not try replacing (in order) the spark plugs, wires and (depending on your engine) the magneto's or distributor cap. Ask the auto parts store if they can look up if you have a distributor-less ignition or if you have a distributor.

So, first the filters (air and any fuel [there may be more than 1]) then check for spark and replace the spark plugs, wires, and magneto/distributor cap.

I hope this helps and good luck! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

SOURCE: nissan sentra 1996 wont start but lights and radio are running

I had the same similar situation not to long ago....I thought it was the starter so i took the starter completely out and had it tested which i found out later i could have it tested while it was still in the vehicle...;) Anyways it said my starter was good...My car radio, lights, and everything electrical came up fine...but when i tried to crank my car nothing would noise whats so ever...I found out that there is a button behind the clutch gotta kinda lay down where you put your feet and look up there is a button that suppose to push in when you push the clutch in and it engages some kinda of saftey switch to ensure the the vehicle is not in cranks up perfect after that i just glued some plastic piece on it to make sure the button is being pushed when i put in the clutch......PS Of course this will only be the issue for Manual Transmission

Sounds like your starter motor is bad, but it could also be just a bad starter relay not allowing current to the starter motor. Have the relay checked first, then the starter.

Ac only works in number 4 on my 1996 nissan 200sx se. is this a known problem and is there a fix? also my radio cuts out alot when i turn my ac ondoe sit sometime when i turn it on and sometime it does it...

Can't help with the radio but the fan is a simple fix. You need a diode block, it's about $20. Once you have the replacement it will be easy to find the defective one. It's located on the firewall under the passenger side dash next to the fan. Two screws and a wiring plug. It should take you longer to find than to replace.

A large fuse is blown close to the battery...40 or 50 amp....took out the alternator and several other things...since you know the reverse jump took the fuse out you can jump the fuse with a large gauge wire (jumper wire) and get it going or ...get the right fuse from the local parts house. This fuse is obvious when you look at it, might have a small plastic cover
