There is a clicker thing that cuts the switch off when you turn the wheel it must be broken. Fuel gauge is controlled by the sending unit in the gas tank. thats a pain to replace, not to mention having to breathe gas fumes the whole time you do it. some cars you have to pull the tank and others you just have to take out the back seat and pull off a panel.

Did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, engine cranking? Does the dist rotor turn when you crank it? Did you use a gage and check correct fuel pressure? Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

If you have the spider fuel system, that system is noted for problems. No, the fuel system shouldn't cause a no spark. If no rpm signal, that will usually stop the injector pulse along with other issues.

96 nissan altima automatic. Wont start I turn the key and get nithung. Have piwer to the radio windoes etc but simpke.wont even begi. To turn


Hi there:Sound like a starter problem, also check battery charge. Spark, fuel and compression... all three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

the fuel sending unit is probably stuck and need to replacing. common problems to many older vehicle it tend to read sometime correctly and sometime not at all. the sending unit will be in your gas tank.

Signal lights, fuel gage, temp gage not working. Could it be the signal light relay? Where is it located?


This sounds like you have blown a fusible link! Check your main fuses first.

Fuel gage turn signals and heater (fan) won't work.


Reversing polarity at the battery is a very bad thing and can cause a host of unpredictable problems. You are lucky that you didn't fry the alternator diodes (the battery is charging, I hope). Each of the problems you describe will have to be treated separately. 1. try replacing the turn signal fuse and flasher unit. 2. fuel gauge has a delicate resistor... probably the easiest fix is to replace the instrument cluster. 3. Heater blower fan has a resistor pack for different fan speeds, this may be replaceable, otherwise a new blower assembly may be the best way to fix it. Hope this helps

Temperature and fuel gages are not working


Take it to a Dealer and have your gauges reset - you should also have your water pump replaced and you might as well have the Timing belt replaced also (usually at 80-90K)

RE: Fuel Gage


The sending unit is the culprit, most likely the arm for the float is detached.
