SOURCE: How do you connect a ballast resistor to a Nissan 1400 bakkie?

G-Day

This says you can just bypass it. Others say it is needed. Can't be a big job, just a crimp connector I reckon. Check this forum
Nissan 1400 difficult to start

and then I found this

Common fault on these are the ballast resistor between the ignition switch and the coil. When you crank the engine the ignition bypasses it and supplies full 12v to the coil, when it fires up and you let go of the ignition the resistor kicks in and the coil only get's 9V. This is to spare the points and help them last longer. Sometimes they go bad and cause the voltage drop to be to much when as Rotor discribes you press on the brakes. They tend to only show these signs when the car has run for a while as they get hot.

It's a little square white ceramic block usually on the firewall. Just take a piece of wire and bypass it for a test. Start the car and drive it and see if it still happens. If not then the resistor is bad and you should get a new one. Otherwise there's a short somewhere as Rotor suggests and you need to look further.

And another reply to it.

He said he changed the resistor block.
I also think it's a short or wire with the plastic around it damaged inside of the dizzy.

Does it sound like you turn the ignition of and there is no power to the coil or does it start miss fire and and then stop?

If it starts miss fire and so on and then stop it can also be a cracked intake mani or a cracked port between the intake and exhaust port.
As the engine heats up the crack pulls open and start sucking exhaust gass into the intake, had a golf head that did that.
My 1400 again had a cracked intake mani on piston 4 and ran too lean so didn't want to idle at low rpm.

But before you start searching for mechanical faults, plug the brake lights out by the switch on the brake and try again.
Also did you check the idle valve on the carb if it gets 12v when idling?
It's the silver thing that screws into the carb with a wire on.
That is the main cause for that to happen on the 1400's

SOURCE: Why does my 2004 Nissan 1400 Bakkie have a flat spot and backfires when I ride

Your timing sounds off. Have someone read the engine codes to see if a sensor isnt working like a camshaft position sensor.

I drive a Nissan 1400 bakkie (not a champ) i drives good and then starts jerking and wants to die as soon i i give petrol it sounds like its smothering


hi, personally ..i love that bakkie. Ok you changed points condensor, petrol filter! please check.. When it cuts out 1. if the ignition coil is not hot, if so thats your problem.2. also on the carb... over the needle and seat there is a tiny filter... somtimes gets blocked. 3. also check when it stolls if the fuel pump is not hot or pull the outlet fuel from the pump
and crank the engine... note if fuel comes out sufficiently.

Spark plugs problems


if they come out black and powdery there is too much fuel.. if they come out sooty its burning oil.. you can increase the gap up to double and it should still fite.. may need a different styl plug like a split fire or airplane engine plug..they make different types but be careful in selecting becaue too hot of fire will burn out valves and possibly blow gaskets..

Nissan 1400 pick up is not starting how do you set the points for igition


Check for spark to the spark plugs during the no start period. If you do not have spark the crank sensor in the distributor is a common failure in these.

Nissan 1400 POWER PROBLEMS


Did you check your spark plugs take them out and measure the gap on the point, if that does not fix the problem test your starter by turning on the car and pushing a screwdriver between the two points on your start hen you will hear if there is power or not if not it is your battery
