Question about Nissan Quest

1 Answer

I came back from running erands and my van wouldn't start. My neighbor gave me a jump and it started back up. I took the van to an autoparts store who tested the battery and said it had 100% charge. The contacts were removed, cleaned and then tightened back down. I drove it home and now it won't start again. What do I do?

Clean the battery post,and the cable ends until they shine,remove all grey,or black film from the battery post ,and cable ends,if this does not help,check the alternator,it should be charging at least 13.65 volts,at the battery with the ac on high blower setting,and the headlights on,if it is not,replace the alternator.

Battery seems to drain in a few hours

If the auto parts store tested your starting and charging systems of your van then they should have noticed an above average current draw when the van was turned off, if not then it is possible that the starter is dragging when it is cool. you need to remember that newer vehicles need a higher static voltage to run all the electronics needed to make your van start and run. This is the best advise I have with the limited info.

Car wouldn't start this morning. Two days ago the light came on and after checking we determined it was the coolant. Checked that and it was low. We just filled it. We then tried to start the car...

As far as the battery size all the parts store needs is the make model and size engine,

and if its a top post or side post battery. that way they can match your car with the correct

battery. as far as the coolant problem, your car could be overheating, the thermostat may

not open when its supposed to. or you may just need a radiator flush. as far as your existing

battery, I would take it to an autoparts store where they can check it 1st, most autoparts

will not charge you for checking parts while you are there, unlike an automotive shop.

good luck!

Sounds like one or more of your fuel injectors is stuck open and dumping raw gas into the exhaust system. I would replace all the injectors since there was sugar run through it.

Van won't start

sounds like you need a new alternator.the battery light is triggered by the diode trio in the alternator. if the light comes on.99 times out of a 100 you need to have your alternator replaced.have your charging system checked first. most parts stores check them for free.with the engine running it should be around 14.5 volts.

Starter issues with 98 Ford Windstar (3.8)

one problem that the 98 winstars ( 3,8L ) are prone to is the transmission range sensor. they are badly located and not well sealed. As a result corosion...
The starter solenoid wire ( red/ light blue ) runs throught the range sensor before reaching the ignition switch.
Try shifting back and forth between Park and L1 rapedly at least 5, 6 times and then try starting in Neutral.
If it starts the TRS is easy to replace and accesible.
( The TRS is also responsible for the transmission going into irradical kick down mode )
