Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Removed a car alarm. Now the starter is clicking when I hook the battery up.

1991 Nissan. The alarm had 2 or 3 wires going to the ignition switch column. It had one power wire and one ground. And then two wires going into the driver side door. Removed the alarm. Put electrical tape to isolate the wires that had been tapped and soldered on the ignition column. Now when I went to hook the battery back up for the first time, since removing the alarm, the starter is going click-click-click until I remove power. What should I look for?

SOURCE: removing the ignition key

I had the same problem going on for quite a while. The Solution is somewhat simple. First, when the key gets stuck, put the wheel up (tilt control), Feel around on the bottom side of the steering column, there is a small rectangular hole that you can put a finger in, it is right under the ignition. Inside there, there is a small button/lever that you can push up on. This will allow the key to be removed.

My aftermarket alarm won't disengage

If the alarm isn\'t hooked to the ignition (The vehicle will still start when the alarm is going off). Just look under the dash for a black box usually about the size of a deck of cards. Unplug the harness and you will have deactivated the alarm. If there is a starter interrupt you\'ll need to dig deeper. Near the ignition switch harness there would be a Green/Red wire (Ignition) and a red wire (Starter). There is often a T-Tap connection to the ignition wire while the starter wire would be cut and routed to the alarm brain (Black box). Simply unplug the t-tap connection from the ignition wire and restore the connection to the starter using a connector.

Most stereo shops would be able to resolve the issue. Our store charges only $35 for a basic alarm removal.

Best of luck. Ben

Won't turn over not even a starter sound changed the starter battery dist cap and rotor ignition coil checked the fusible links by the battery one of which says clutch I am out of ideas

If you hear nothing and the Battery is good. Are you sure the engine isn't seized? You should be able to turn the motor over by hand at the Balancer. There are a lot of systems that may interfere with the starting of the vehicle. The Neutral Safety switch for example will keep the engine from turning over, This is located in the Transmission. The ignition switch going bad or your vehicle alarm system if it is equipped with one. If you have an alarm with anti theft device, engine cutoff, try pulling the fuse from the main power wire on the alarm.

The engine will not turn over

If you car has an alarm try depressing the Valet switch and de-activate the alarm. What happens with car alarms is they are auto activated when the battery is dead and re-connected. Also go to the starter itself and find the solenoid. There are usually one or 2 single wires attached to the rear of the soleniod. One is an ignition bypass and the other is 12VDC from the start switch. Have someone turn the key and check for 12VDC on the wires. Only one of them will have voltrage when the key is turned to start. If you have 12DC on the wire terminal with the key turned to start then you have a bad starter / start soleniod.

After changing the starter and alternator and installed a new ignition switch my 1997 Nissan p/u started up fine. Drove it around town, stopped, turned off the engine and it started again right away. Drove...

Check and make sure you are getting power to the ignition switch and to the stator wire on the starter. Turn the key on and and measure the volts going to the starter on both wires. You should a atleast 12 volts going to the stator wire and to the main wire from the battery. If you are not getting power there it could be a fuseable link in the power wire from the ignition. I noticed that you replaced the ignition switch make sure the rod from the key switch has not come out of the switch.

My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not even a click. All lights are ok, stereo, wiper, etc. battery is only months old. I pulled out the starter, have it tested at Advance Auto Parts and it worked...

It is possible that the neutral safety switch needs to be replaced. This is on the transmission where the shifter connects to it. Unfortunately it could also be some of the other problems mentioned too , but as I only have this question locked to me for 30 min, could you possibly give me some more time and I will come back to you asap on how you can test this switch first and go from there.

Thank you for your patience

1991 Nissan 240SX starter will not turn!

If you've applied 12VDC to the solenoid and it does nothing, not even click, then the solenoid is toast!

1990 nissan stanza wont start

replace your battery cables, the cables can corrode on the inside, turning a dark green color.
OR the starting solenoid and the wires going to and from it. that one small wire going from battery to solenoid might be your problem.
