Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

My car is having trouble starting. I turn the key and can hear everything else working except for the fact that the car won't start. Ignition switch problem? What is the best way to solve this problem? I really want to avoid taking it to a dealership. I'm a student and I am tight with funds.

Make sure it is in park. then try putting it in neutral. check your battery terminals. check the battery for at least 12 volts.

Car will turn over or start


Hi Kay, I'm glad to help! Kay, if you turn the key on and nothing happens at all. In other words: You do not here the engine turning over and sometimes the dash lights and guages do not work. Here's your most likely problem. Your vehicle has what they call a WIN Module which is the same thing as an old style Ignition Switch. When the WIN goes bad it's shuts everything down and nothing happens when you turn the ket to the start position. This WIN will need to be replace at the dealership because they will need to program the WIN and then program the KEYs to the new WIN. NOTE: DO NOT be alarmed if the tell you that you need new keys because they want program to the new WIN, sometimes this happens in fact so often that the manufacture started sending NEW KEYS with the WIN, But, only on some year models. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kay.

The car will not start. Battery is charged. I turn the key and get a single click and a slight hum for about 3 seconds. All the lights stay on except the radio when i try to turn the car on. Ive cleaned...


could be the starter motor solenoid is stuck the click can be the the ignition relay and the hum is the fuel pump. sometimes works if you hit the solenoid with the a hammer then try to start the engine if this work then change the starter motor or have it fixed.

Possible solution - This happened to me and my battery was dead in my key fob and also I needed an ignition switch because a piece on it was broken which therefore wouldn't turn to start the engine.

2002 Suburban clicks when trying to start.


Yes it could be your starter the fact that you hear the click tells you that the starter solenoid is in fact working. Do check your connections for looseness or corrosion prior to starter replacement and fix as needed. Possibly has a dead spot on the starter that won't allow starter motor to turn even though the solenoid engages.

I have a 96 Chevy Corsica and it won't start.... I


If you have a healthy spark (a blue snapping spark), it would not be a problem in the ignition system or the module. An orange, weak, or intermittent spark could point to trouble in the ignition.
I would check the timing on it, maybe it is a timing chain problem. It should have fired and ran a bit with the starter fluid. The fact that it didn't, even with a good spark, well, probably needs a little shop time investigating. Jumped timing from a worn chain? Low compression in one or more cylinders? A couple of things you need to consider.
Good luck.

2005 pt cruiser won't start won't crank, everything works


When you turn the key on the ASD relay should turn on the fuel pump and power the injector, Do this lets cheat the system go to the ASD rely open the cover expose the inside have some one turn the key on does the ASD make contact? If not turn the key on collpase the ASD so it make contact do you hear the fuel pump come on? Now try this just as how you iopen the ASD do the same to the starter relay. Put the car in gear e brake on someone in the vehicle in case the car start and you are in front of it and it runs you over so at least they step on the brakes. Key on ASD exposed as your collapse the starter relay does the ASD relay turn on? Here why if you can control all the relay from under the hood you will need a ignition switch (the eletrical part)

1995 geo tracker won't start. I've replaced everything except the ignition switch. It used to click when i turn the key, now it won't even click.


DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY AND RECONNECT, THIS SHOULD RESET THE BRAIN.

ALSO...WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, LISTEN TO HEAR IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP COME ON...IF NOT, GUESS WHAT? HOPEFULLY NOT!... BUT,YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP, IF YOU CAN'T HEAR IT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, AFTER YOU'VE RESET THE BATTERY!

HOPE THIS HELPS!

2007 chevy cobalt ls won't start battery good starter good turn key nothing no click nothing all lites work on dash and radio works jumped starter with screwdriver turns. Over but won't start...


Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.
