SOURCE: I have 2005 Nissan altima that wont start. It

Nissans are known to have problems with ignition coils which would not show up on code reader. I would start with that. Pull a plug and hold it to ground to see how strong the spark is while turning engine over. If the plugs are wet when you take them out then you can be sure it is in all probability related to coils.

SOURCE: security light was coming on

When ever the security light comes on, it only means one thing. The PASSLOCK anti theft in your vehicle is not communicating properly with itself. It sounds confusing, but its really simple.

Your key has a trasnponder (radio waves) in it. So not only must the key be "cut" correctly to turn the the ignition like every other key, but it must also send the correct radio signal to the ignition. This signal is then sent from the ignition/lock cylinder to the TDM (theft deterrent module) which in turn activates the starter and injectors. Which then allows your to start your vehicle or remain running.

The system is a great idea, because without the actual transponder key near the ignition, you can't even hotwire the vehicle. The problem is. Passlock has about a 5-7 year lifespan. Costs anywhere from $350-$700 + labor to fix, and is gaurenteed to fail again on you down the line. Diagnosing which part of the system is not working is next to impossible yourself, and many people end up throwing vehicles away because of this.

The good news is, when this happened to me, i found some ways to beat this system. Check out this link. Im sure you will find some sort of help on it. It gives you a rundown of symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions to the problem. Good luck and i hope this helps you.

07 santa fe wont start new fuel pump full fuel pressure to injector rail seem like injector not opening

Do some research and find out what fires the injectors. Usually it will be the crank sensor. Find out if the ECU is getting its signal. If not I would think it is somewhere between either the sensor and the ECU. If it is, check between the ECU and the injectors. If everything tests good, you might need an ECU.

And I mean if the crank sensor is sending out a signal, and the connector to the ECU is receiving the signal, and the harness between the ECU and the injector rail are testing to have good continuity. Don't just run out and buy a new or reman ECU without making sure you need one.

90 k5 blazer i dont have any power at map sensor, throttle position sensor, and the injectors will not fire. i have preasure but no injector fire. could anything in the column cause this

can you check to see if the ecu is getting power. i dont have the wiring code to hand, but remove the battery and unplug the ecu. then put battery back on and turn ignition on, with a meter or a 12 volt bulb with a wire conect to earth and the other end to connections on the ecu plug you should get 4 or 5 lives. if that all works try the ground wires to the shell follow the ground wire from the battery to the shell check and clean these.

Do the crank sensor operate the fuel injectors?

Not directly no. The crank position sensor tells the cars computer, ECU, where the engine rotation is, and the ECU pulses the injectors at the right time, then fires the spark plugs at the right time.

The crank position sensor is mounted in various locations by different manufacturers. In my Camry it is on the distributor shaft ! In your car it could be on the crankshaft nose or in some other place.

Engine turns over, no start. Camshaft Sensor and CKT Sensor replaced

I would check the computer for trouble codes first.
Could be a problem in the wiring harness, or one of the components the cam and crank sensors "reads".
And of course you could have gotten a faulty part.
You might be able to take a meter and check each sensor while still on the engine.

These guys are breaking parts every time you go there. Would never have replaced the ecu. It was the crank sensor to begin with. Replace the vss yourself. It is easy.

96 vw jetta 2.0l will turn over but will not start

I had a problem like this on a 1997 VW Jetta 2.0L. I suggest you obtain a multimeter, a gas pressure gauge, and a used injector from a junk yard. You need to find if the car has spark if it is getting gas and if the injector is firing. Plug a used spark plug into say # 4 spark plug wire and ground end against the manifold or other ground. Have someone crank the engine and see if there is spark. If there is spark then disconnect the electrical connector and plug in the used injector and hold in your hand. Have someone crank the engine and if it clicks as the engine revolves the injector is firing. Now if you have spark and an injector that clicks then put the pressure gauge in the upper line going to the injector manifold. Use a T so that the fuel can still flow into the manifold. If these three things check out. You need to also verify the engine is timed correctly and the timing belt did not slip a few teeth. I had a problem with my crankshaft sensor. I bought a new one and although I was getting about a .3 volt ac signal, I still had no spark at spark plugs. I wound up getting another new crankshaft sensor and read 3 volts ac from the new sensor. I then had good spark Hope this helps
