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.

My vehicle will not start but when I turn the key the car beeps at me.


More than likely, as crazy as it may seem, if the Battery is more than 3-years old it's probably not holding a good enough charge for starting. Try a Jump from another vehicle cable go Black to Black and red to red. If it starts take the cables off and let it charge a while.Shut it off and try it again, if you still have problems get the battery and Charging system professionally checked. Good Luck.

Why are 1994 pathfinder brake light, door ajar, check engine, and alternator lit?


when the battery is flat or removed from the engine then the CPU program can become corrupted . IT is always a good idea to use a scanner tool to reprogram the CPU properly to eliminate any faults that first show up before changing anything to the systems as this changes can create more problems than they solve especially if it was only a program problem to start with.

Have your alternator checked. Most auto supply places do this at no charge. Multiple dashboard warning lights usually indicate alternator problems.

I have a 1994 nissan pathfinder and the ignition locked and my key won.t tun it.


A lot of times you need to rotate the steering wheel a little while trying to turn the key to release the lock. This should then allow you to turn the key in the ignition. Hope this helps.

1994 pathfinder not starting


Sounds like the starter needs a freshen up.
Solenoid should be the problem and when you jump the lugs on the start you are bypassing the solenoid .The solenoid is the little cylinder attached to the starter motor.
Contacts will be stuffed.
Hope this helps.
