Sounds like a bad ignition switch. Replace it or do away with the part that feeds 12 volts to the coil
If you can get a wiring diagram for it, find the ignition wire.You could also use a 12 volt test light to find the ignition wire. Cut the ignition wire off the harness under the dash where it goes up the steering column to the ignition switch.Splice onto the end that goes to the coil. The lower end of this harness.
Install a rocker or toggle switch somewhere easily accessible. Preferably a lighted rocker switch. Run a fused 12 volt positive to it, and the ignition wire that goes to the coil. If you use a lighted rocker switch, you'll need a ground wire up to the new switch (so the light will work). When the switch is on, the ignition is on. No more messing around holding the key just right to keep it running.
Or, since the ignition switch you have seems to be defective, take it and have it replaced. There might be a warranty, since a new switch shouldn't work like that. Good luck Garcuda

My heater on my Nissan 1400 bakkie stays on warm, moving the arm to "Off" does not help


Hi Johan, I believe the problem will be with either the operating cable or the heater control valve. Sometimes WD40 can work wonders on both, but each should be removed before being sprayed. If the cable or vave is damaged, replacement will be required. Regards John

I drive a Nissan 1400 bakkie (not a champ) i drives good and then starts jerking and wants to die as soon i i give petrol it sounds like its smothering


hi, personally ..i love that bakkie. Ok you changed points condensor, petrol filter! please check.. When it cuts out 1. if the ignition coil is not hot, if so thats your problem.2. also on the carb... over the needle and seat there is a tiny filter... somtimes gets blocked. 3. also check when it stolls if the fuel pump is not hot or pull the outlet fuel from the pump
and crank the engine... note if fuel comes out sufficiently.

Nissan 1400 pick up is not starting how do you set the points for igition


Check for spark to the spark plugs during the no start period. If you do not have spark the crank sensor in the distributor is a common failure in these.
