Question about 1997 Nissan.5 Altima

2 Answers

Dash board, RPM, AC, Power window do not work and car is running

New battery put in Nissan Altima GXE 1998 (99Krun car). When ignition key is turned the car starts but no dashboard light, no RPM, no AC, no power window. The car keeps running but slowly it seems the battery drains out. Sometimes while turning it appears to lock in and everything runs fine and even battery seems to get charged. Is this a ignition switch problem? If I replace the ignition switch, will everything be fine.

No. If the switch was bad, then it would not run at all. What you need to do is buy a cheap volt meter at Harbor Freight (about $3). They check the battery voltage off, which should be about 12.5 volts. When starting it should drop to about 10. But should be up around 13.5 when running, especially when the engine if revved it should go even higher, around 13.9. You may have a bad alternator or a short that makes the voltage drop lower than it should. Hard to find. Look for places insulation can burn or rub off.

Charge up the battery first. If the battery won't take a charge, then it's time for a new battery.

Nissan altima 1996, cabin fan blower switch works without the ignition key. If I forget to turn off the fan control switch it drains all battery.


Either the blower switch wiring has been altered, or you have a short to power in that circuit. The dash controls are not supposed to have power without the key. Are there any other functions that stay on with the key off? Stereo? turn signals? This would indicate a problem in the ignition switch, which is where all power must go through first.

You need a body control computer, which controls the windows, door locks and other items. The new computer will have to be programed by a good imports shop or Nissan dealer.

I have a 2000 Nissan Altima GXE. When I turned the ignition over, it wouldn't start there was only a clicking sound. After several tries, it finally started. It ran for one day and then started the same...


Check your battery connections & battery condition, as well as connections at the starter. If those are cleaned and tightened, and battery is good, I'd start thinking about a new/rebuilt starter. $200. should cover parts & labor.
