Turn on the ignition and check headlights come on this will show if power is being sent to the circuits, if totally dead check master fuses (normally near the battery). Check cable connections at battery and the live(red) connection to the starter motor. There should be an earth lead (usually copper braided) between the bodywork and the engine. All connections must be tight and clean.

SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Sentra car will not start but battery is 100% charged, will start when boosted though

check your battery cables to see if the cables themselves are corroded and also check the connections where they connect to the vehicle that they are clean
positivecable will connect at the starter and the negative will connect to the engine some where.
if this does not help then have your starter tested to see if it is dragging. as it could be the armature or the brushes in the starter.

How long did the 2nd alt. last before it died? The voltage regulator is, I believe, attached to the alternator. Have u had the voltage regulator checked?

SOURCE: 97 nissan sentra with brake and battery light

These lights will come on if your alternator isn't charging fully. With a multi meter test your voltage at the battery with the engine running. The voltage should be above 14 volts. If it is below 14 you will need to replace the alternator.

97 Nissan Altima won't Start. It only clicks once when you turn the key. It has a manual transmission and won't even push start. Any idea's?

One click and no start? Sounds like a starter issue. Make sure that your battery is fully charged before you do anything. If it is charged, make sure all of your battery cables are clean and tight all the way down to the starter. You can also have you battery and starter tested at almost any auto parts store. The transmission is a totally different issue.

My 97 Nissan sentra signal lights are not working! I have changed the bulbs but they blow out. I changed the fuses but still don't work. What is wrong?

if the bulbs are blowing out it sounds like your alternator may be overcharging check to see the output of your charging system check all your ground wires as well as the power leads

I have 2004 nissan sentra ,I can not get anything to come on

this could be a problem in the power distribution box under the bonnet like a corroded cable or the vibration has broken it ,disconnect the battery and put it on charge overnight and see what happens in case the battery is just flat ,if still nothing after charging try a jump start in case it is the batery died as they can go all of a sudden .

1990 Nissan Sentra will not start

If your battery is fully charged then I'd say your starter is bad. Or the starter relay.
