Its in the starter circuit not the ignition--a part is old and gained resistence--hav a datastream run to pinpoint component--its a scan that uses factory equipment and displays values--done at private shops--dont go to a dealer--make sure tech has xperienc figuring readout----to find a shop go to surecritic.com

My 93 Altima will not start. I did the self diagnostic and got code 55?? It started a few weeks ago ran great for the weekend, got it to work and would not crank to go home.


Josh, Code 55 for your Altima simply means no faults were found/no malfunction. Do you mean car would not crank(engine not turning over) or did you mean engine will crank, but not start. I will post troubleshooting links to both conditions below. If not comfortable, have a good Technician look at it, diagnose and estimate repair.

Inhibitor relay


No, the inhibitor relay is to prevent cranking when not in park or neutral. You will have to look elsewhere for the no start. Check fuel pressure, and check spark.

I have a 92 sentra lights come on but when i turn key nothing happens. Starter good ,relay good, head lights don't dim when you turn key . Car won't turn over at all


If by lights, you mean the dash lights come on, then ignition switch must be getting power. If dash is not working with key on, check the 30 amp fuse link which powers the ignition switch.
If switch is good and starter is good, the start wire from switch goes to, if automatic, to inhibitor relay (the park/neutral function) and then to starter. There is also an inhibitor switch on the shifter or on the transaxle that turns on the inhibitor relay when key is on and shifter in park or neutral. The inhibitor switch is powered by a 10 amp fuse D.
If you have a manual transmission, the start wire from ignition switch goes to the clutch interlock relay and then to the starter. This relay is turned on by the clutch interlock switch on the clutch pedal.
You can check for power on either relay, the inhibitor relay or the clutch interlock relay, with a test light. Pull the relay out, have the key held in start position. Now both relays would have power showing on two terminals where the relay plugs in. If inhibitor relay only has power on one terminal or no power at all, either ignition switch is not sending power or fuse D is out or the inhibitor switch is not working right. If clutch interlock switch does not have power on two terminals either the ignition switch is not sending power or the clutch interlock switch is bad.
If the relay checks are good, check for power on the small wire to starter with key held in start. If you have power there, the starter solenoid must be out.

Car won't start


You should be able to jump start the engine as long as you are very careful hooking up the cables.
You might want to check battery voltage with a meter first.

2005 Altima won't start, hear clicking sound coming from fuse box,key stuck in ingintion,won;t turn over,tried to jump start.


the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

My 1995 Nissan Altima won't start. Has lights, power etc - tried to boost anyway, with no luck. No clicking like a starter problem. Tried moving gear shift, still not turning over.


Try this : Turn the head lights on , try and start the engine . Carefully watch the headlights , if they dim some what you have a starter problem . If the headlights go off replace the battery . If the headlights stay bright you have an open circuit problem .

If the latter is the case I would recommend looking at the inhibitor switch which is located on the automatic transmission . This would usually be the problem .
