This is usually caused by a faulty alternator.
It stays on because the alternator is not generating sufficient voltage on the control winding to extinguish it.

Check battery terminal voltage while motor running with headlights on or blower fan running.
Terminal voltage should be approx 14.5V.
Ensure alternator and engine are properly connected to ground and the battery negative terminal.

Sounds like a fuel pressure problem, either the pump or the filter among other things.

My 97 nissan 200sx 1.6 liter. Almost stalls when i stop, but it stays runing,and some times it does stall.


We have two Nissan 200sx's, a 1995 manual and a 1996 auto. Both had this problem and both turned out to be the same thing. The "idle air control valve." It was most noticeable if you ran the air conditioner and then came up to a red light. You would have to keep pushing on the brake and race the engine a little to keep it from shutting off. Replaced that part and both cars have never had the problem again.

If all the lights are lighting up brightly, then your battery has enough charge and your starter is definitely the cause of your no start. You might want to check your starter relay first though, since you just changed the starter.

I have to turn my key many times for my nissan 200sx to start. is this the ignition or the starter


At a guess, either the connection at the battery or starter. Try turning the headlights on , then hit the starter. If the lights go out, battery terminal. Stay on, starter connection. Lovely little car!

1996 nissan 200sx with a new battery and starter but when key is turned there is nothing no click no rotation what so ever the clutch is depressed lights come on with full intensity but the car wont turn...


check the wires on the starter motor,there's a small one that sometimes gets dirty and loses contact or may even be off altogether,this supplies the feed to starter to tell it to turn over, or try running a live wire from the battery straight to this small terminal on starter motor body..CAUTION, make sure you are in neutral gear with handbrake applied, turn ignition on so lights on dash are lit up, then a quick touch of this "live" wire should make engine turn over or start,if so the problem is the small wire has no live feed or needs cleaning.
hope this helps.

Cranking non start no dash lights and no spark


check codes if possible usually bad distributor (cam position sensor) inside distributor, check for no injector pulse (clicking noise at injector when cranking engine over. start with basics by checking for blown fuses or bad connections (start from battery on in).
