Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

95 nissan d21 will not turn on/over


You have power to other items but if you have none to the ig switch usually a big red or brown wire then there is nothing going back to the starter etc.You say the red is dead. That usually comes from the big starter terminal. Try google images for a diagram if you don't have one. Alternatively if you can easily access the starter take a length of heavy wire and flash between the battery positive and starter terminal and see if it turns over. If so, you have to fault find the supply to the key.

My car will not crank. i have replaced starter, wiring,battery cables, timing belt. it will turn over and try to catch but will not crank


Please explain - when you say it wont crank - do you mean the engine does not turn over when turning the ignition key to the start position? or does it turn over but does not fire up?

try to check if the starter relay clicking while you start.If no maybe bad connection from ignition key. If the relay clicking maybe the connection to starter or the starter itself is damaged. try to direct the sol. of starter to batt. positive if it kick your starter is good.

Takes 3 to 4 times to start


when you turn your key, make sure radio,ac, fan and all accessories are off turn the key to the run mode not quite to start let it sit about 10 seconds then turn it over, it could be spark plugs, fuel pump, or fuel filter :) hope this helps :)
