Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder
This moring I tried to start my 1994 Pathfinder and when I turned the key on the warning lights came on the dash board but nothing else. I tried to jump it and still nothing.
I had a similar problem w/ my 94 Pathfinder. The problem was a cheap security system that was offered in that year model and the wiring between the ignition and the starter was run through this system. The dealership was able to by pass the security system and this fixed the problem. For years other mechanics told me it was the starter but I knew it was something else.

First thing is try cleaning the battery post step two charge the battery with a battery charger then take it to a parts store and have them do a load test on the battery. Is the load test ok? if so install the battery and try starting again. If there is not start check the wires on the starter see if they are loose, if not you will need a test light and putthe test light on the solinoid wire on the starter and the other end to ground have someone try starting the engine, when yo try cranking over does the light come? if yes you wil need to pull the starter and have it tested, but before removing the starter test both battery cables for resistance, the resistance should be zero ohms, if it's more then replace the cable with a new one. If this does not detect the problem post here to go deeper in testing system.
