Question about 2005 Nissan X-Trail 2.0
Car not starting. Fuel tank full. When starting the car the fuel gauge shows zero and the low level light comes on and stays on. I have checked all fues fine. I have checked and removed fuel line at enty to engine plenty fuel pump okay. I have checked for spark okay. I replaced the plugs any way. Is there a circuit where if the tank is empty is shuts down a circuit to prevent starting? The tank is full. I have not repalced or checked the big circuit fuses not that good. Why not starting

remove the front 02sensor and drive the car like that, remove means complety take it apart from exaust, if problem goes away or gets so much better then your catalitic converter at the exaust is restricted and need a new one

I also have a 04 with a 1.8L. same problem. I took the fuel regulator off. It is a black box behind the rear tire under car. It only has 2 bolts to take off. After that there is a couple of vent hoses from the tank going to this box. Unplug them and 1 electrical connection. The electrical connection and one vent is connected to a T connection on the box that you can unplug by twisting on the T. Take that T off and look inside where you unplugged the hose on this T. There is a spring and a little plunger inside this tube. The plunger gets stuck. I took a little screw driver and some PB blaster and worked that plunger back and forth a couple dozen times and it unfroze. Put it back together gassed up just fine. I did not look but I was told regulator can be replaced for 200$. But a can of blaster is cheaper.

Take it back to where you had it serviced. They probably simply missed connecting the fuel level sensor. The engine light is probably from a missed emissions hose that goes to the gas tank.

This def sounds like a fule pump issue ...it should be located in the gas tank its self although i would check the fuses first before getting into the tank.
If this is in a 240sx the way into the tank is through the trunk.Lift the carpet and you will see on the mid right side a small 6-8" lid with some wires going into it. Unscrew that and your on your way in.
If you do pull out the pump just be careful handling it as to not break the sensor unit attached to the pump.

There is a possible recall on 2005-2008 nissan frontier/pathfinder and xterra, for erratic/inaccurate or
