    tried this didnt work :(
    -----------------------------
    if it ran out of gas it just may be air locked, you can't just crank the engine turn the key to the run postion for 3 seconds and shut off and do this 7 or 8 times then try starting it. The fuel pump will not pump while cranking it is a fail safe if the car is in a wreck and the pump won't continue to pump gas out and catch on fire. This should fix it for you.

    Well now you have disable the alarm too shees your just haveing a bad Hair day arn't ya I hope it goes ok for you, if you have the driver window down you will here the pump hum and shut off that tells you its working you will have to prime it the wayY I told you the first time and did you rate me? c-ya

  • Bruce Hathcock Jul 25, 2009

    you have not rated me so you hurt my score so no more help till you do.

  • Bruce Hathcock Jul 25, 2009

    Well your in a line today that has put me in a bad mood, I answer over 1000 questions some takes a lot of time and effort and they never bother to say it worked it didn't or your a **** or whatever so I juts decided to end it ,I don't rating I'm done. Most people I help for free and work till there problem is solved and I don't get rated, so I tell you what to do and you have no clue of what is wrong then you tell me you don't have a battery, that makes me look like an idiot, cause on a lot of cars when the battery dies it won't start, but if you ran it out of gas there is much more that can be wrong. Gas is used to coll the pump cause it's in the tank they did that so cars won't vapor lock anymore but on the other hand if you run it out of fuel it can collapse the sock inside the fuel tank because of it's age and the ethanol i the gas it destroys it, so that happens you run it low on gas you may be lucky and it may start, it may not, next is the fuel filter in the last two seconds of running the pump got hot as there was no fuel in the tank so it could have ruined the pump so no matter what you do it may not start, also the fuel filter is surly plugged and will need to be replaced or you will destroy the pump, as far as the fail safe for anti theft you have to listen to the other guy If you would have said you had the battery out I would not even be having this conversation cause I would not have answered not knowing how to reset the security for every car ever manufactured since 1983. No offnce to you just uptight with the people I have had to deal with today. So Good luck I hope you. get it running.

  • Bruce Hathcock Jul 25, 2009

    Right I understand I was not mad at you so sorry if you thought that.. Just stating how I felt, I understand your greif with the car, I looked at me scores and have 697 questions not even rated so that was what was bothering me. And I don't fault you for not knowing at least you gave me more information than others so I still hope you get it fixed.

  • Bruce Hathcock Jul 25, 2009

    did you get it fixed yet?

  • Bruce Hathcock Jul 26, 2009

    try calling auro zone or AAA if you have itthey be able to tell you how to disable the alarm I am not sure, if you have a tow service they may could tell you, but when you trun the car on the run postion do you hear the pump running?

  • Bruce Hathcock Jul 26, 2009

    Pam never try to runn less than 1/4 of tank of fuel if you do this a lot it will damage the fuel pump gald you got it running.

1999 Nissan Maxima-wont start, no injector pulse


I have a service manual. I suppose you are talking about the anti-theft system. It says that if there is power going to the starter when you try and start that the anti-theft system is ok and that means that it is allow the car to start. If there is not power to the starter then your anti-theft system is stopping the car from starting for some reason.

Remove anit-theft system


the anti theft control wont keep the engine from turning over if this is the case and the engine will not spin over. THEN this is not your problem. Have someone bump your starter with a obgect while you hold your key in the start postion. Before doing so make sure your battery is chared and you have good connections.

If you use the drivers outside door lock to unlock the vehicle it should disarm the vehicle. emmissionwiz is correct, you can't simply shut the factory alarm off.
