Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

2 Answers

Today like any other day, I started my car and drove to drop my kid off from school. I parked turned the car off but when I tried to restart the car it wouldnt turn over. Brand new battery the cranking is strong but nothing else. The car ran out of gas a week or so ago. So could there be and issue with the fuel injection?

    Good news. The car started without a problem. I neglected to point out that the car had ran out of gas. When the vehicle was refueled, it was simply driven. So when the car didnt start today, I pumped the gas (petal), cranking the ignition several times and left the car for a few hours. Before I simply cranked the ignition, I placed the car in neutral, turned the key to the on switch, and waited several minutes while reading the manual and thinking positive thoughts! I cranked the ignition and it started like a car with 41k miles should...with a roar!
    Thank you for your website and your quick response.

    but when I tried to restart the car it wouldnt turn over. Brand new battery the cranking is strong but nothing else. ok this doesnt jive ..was it dead or did it just whirl over and not start . if it was dead then bad starter possibly the solenoid not energizing and kicking in the starter . or if it whirls over and doesn't start then it may be a no spark condition . troubleshooting is in this site just enter your car and apply for member benefits . good luck

Simple solutions first, check fuses, if they are ok then the relays need to be checked, if they are ok then deeper issues arise, there could be a number of issues, the nuetral start switch, solonoid on the starter motor or faulty ignition system, this will have to be analized by someone with a code reader, this will determine the fault and he can tell you the cost. Hope this guide will help you, Good luck

First you need to pin down where the problem is. Use another car to jump start your vehicle (or you can use a battery charge with the boost car function on it). If it starts it tells you that you starter and engine are good and that the problem is in the battery or charging system. If it doesn't start then it is in the starter or engine.

Change mechanics- If the car drove to school but then failed to start, it was never the plugs. Could be fuel supply problem (filter or pump, maybe debris in the tank) or an electrical problem.

Remove wife from car. Kidding. Check fuel pump fuse. If thats good, check fuel pressure. Low or no pressure you will need a fuel pump. Good luck!
