Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra
A 1996 Nissan - older vehicle - probably lots of miles - could be numerous things.
1. check to make sure the timing belt is OK
does it sound normal when cranking the engine or does it spin the engine really fast? Does it labor hard when cranking?
2. check for spark -
you may need someones help - a spark tester is the safest way and they are fairly cheap to buy at a parts store.
3. check for fuel -
spray some carb cleaner in the intake/throttle and crank it - if it fires and dies then lack of fuel needs to be addressed
Let me know if this helps you at all

do you have the right light bulb? i own a 98 sentre and
it takes a 9004 bulb, but walmarts computer said to use 9007. That made the high beam censor stay on till i replaced it. if you look at the bulb you can tell if it is a dual or single beam bulb.!!!!

I had this problem with my 99 Durango and went to AutoBeef.com to discover this was a major problem with 98 & 99 Durangos. The fix was easy -- PCM "brain" was exchanged with a refurbished PCM "brain" from an online PCM company in Florida. You can google as I can't remember name of company. I called them and they said - Yep this is the fix -- the guys told me 3 screws all I had gone to several mechanics and dealers -- none could figure it out. I was so grateful that someone gave me the clue I needed.
