Car won't start.


1) Clean the contact batteries very well
2) Test the c. breaker for primary circuit.
3) Test the coi for output voltage.
4) Put some screwdriver with a good ground about 3/8 inch, if there are Not SPARK, the problem arise with the coil, or the wire spark plug.
5) Adjust the gap according with the instruction manufacturer.
6) By pass the ballast resistor and if turn ON replace the resistor in the distributor.
7) Tes the solenoid for starting motor, with a screwdrive and make short circuit.

sincerely God bless you

Fan blower does not turn on I replaced blower, resistor and even a relay but does not work. So I ran a power wire from battery to resistor and it works what can be the problem?


The heater control,where you turn it on,and off,pull it out,it is most likely burned up where the connector attaches to the switch,and the connector,will most likely have to be replaced.

Did you find out a solution to your problem? I have a 1996 trooper that is showing most of the same symptoms that you have. I'm curious as to your fix. Was it simply a bad ground?

Battery is new. I turn the key and nothing comes on. I can jump it off and an hour later it wont start again


take the battery in to have it tested it may be defective. if the battery tests ok your alternator isn't charging. if you have a volt meter , your battery voltage should be no lower than 12.5 volts dc and with the motor running you should see no lower than 13.5 volts dc with everything turned on (lights, ac on fan on high) if the voltage drops below that your alternator is bad.

Sounds like your ballast resistor is out for the blower motor. You said that you only had 1 speed or off when you turned the fan on. The fan's speeds are made possible by a separate resistor installed on the heater box. The dash switch itself will only work at one speed when the resistor isn't functioning; and eventually the switch will burn out too. The resistor is much easier to change out than the blower motor was, and cheaper too. You can find it on the heater core/blower box by the passenger side footwell You can order the resistor for around $25.00 from a Nissan dealer, the switch itself costs about the same, verses around $90 for the blower motor.. It took me all of 20 minutes to change them out in my Nissan. I really hope you kept your receipt for the new blower motor, because it was probably fine. I'm not sure what you mean about the automated seat belt fuse. I know there is a sensor in each seat that causes the seatbelt indicator light to flash until you plug the belt in. There are 2 wiring harnesses, one for the seat that can tell when weight is on the seat, the other one shuts off the dash indicator when you plug the belt clasp in. Good luck...

Wiring problem


Check the fusible links at the starter. One of them may be burned. You mentioned that it shuts down when you turn a corner. Check the wiring going to the ignition switch under the steering column, you may have a loose wire there as well.
