    Engine does not at all starts. I think my mechanic tried his hands on neutral safety switch actually we tried starting the car by pushing that switch but it did not get started. I got my battery changed also.

    I meant to say that when I turn the key nothing cranks even engine does not start. But when I push the car engine starts and then remains on unless I switch it off.

I'm guessing that you have a manual transmission since you said it starts when pushed. Your best bet would be to check your neutral safety switch which is directly behind your clutch pedal. make sure gear selector is in neutral you may try moving the wires around (sometimes they may lose their connection)while pushing the button in and attempting to start the vehicle. Also when you turn your key to crank your vehicle does your engine turn over and just doesn't start or does nothing at all happen. There are a few possible variables if your could describe everything that does or does not happen.

    Ok then if your engine is cranking over and not starting you may try replacing your crank sensor (that means the ignition switch and starter are functioning). You already know from popping your clutch to start your vehicle that it has good spark, fuel delivery and timing that doesn't leave much to rule out. Hope this helps, let me know how it turns out

SOURCE: I have Manual Nissan Altima 1997. It does not crank.

If you can hear the starter solenoid click, when you turn the key to start, then check that the large positive wire going to the starter solenoid from the battery has a good contact at each end. If you don't hear the solenoid click, then check that the small wire going to the starter solenoid has a good contact and power.

My 1997 Nissan altima wont crank over


Test battery, and check for loose connections. Check starter fuse & relay. If you don't hear clicking sounds while trying to start the car then most likely it's a bad starter relay. If your getting voltage to the starter but no click then you have bad starter.
