Question about 1994 Nissan Altima

Wont start. everything comes on, but no start. Not ignition switch, starter, alternator, or battery. Starter was removed and tested. When it was put back in car started, ran for about 10 days, then stopped again.

    the small wire going to the starter is the line activated by the key. The wire may be damaged. also check for proper gound wires to body and engine. When you experience the problem again use a 12V circuit tester to see if power is getting to the small wire on the starter. If yes then there is a problem with the starter or the cable supplying power( big red cable) Also if you can jump start when the problem shows it may be the battery or its connections.

Make sure you check all you relays and i would suggest replacing the starter anyways cause it could be acting up.i had the same problem and a new starter fixed it.

Replaced starter and ignition relays under hood on my 99 chevy silverado and to wont do anything no security light no nothing is on everything good on all connections replaced wiring harness...


Is power getting to the ignition switch? Do the warning lights and gauges come on when key is turned to on? That would verify power in and power out at the switch. Then you would need to check the start circuit. A single start wire comes out of the switch, the signal travels through the neutral safety switch and a starter relay and then to the starter solenoid mounted on the starter. Solenoid closes contacts so battery power can operate the starter. If new starter doesn't work, power has been lost between the ignition switch and the starter.
If no power to the ignition switch check maxi fuses, all fuses in fact, and possibly a fusible link from the battery that may be the feed for the switch.

IF STARTER RELAY BAD THE STARTER WONT MAKE NO NOISE AT ALL HEADLIGHTS WONT DIM.IF YOU CLICKING NOISE BATTERY VOLTAGE TOO LOW. MAKE SURE BATTERY VOLTS ARE 12.6 VOLTS AND USE TEST LIGHT TO SEE IF STARTER GETTING POWER.COULD HAVE BLOWED IGNITION FUSE OR FAULTY IGNITION SWITCH. TO CHECK STARTER SOLENOID FIRST TURN OFF RADIO THEN REMOVE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE AND POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE.THEN REMOVE STARTER BUY A REMOTE SWITCH.YOU NEED BATTERY JUMPER CABLES HOOK BATTERY JUMPER CABLES TO BATTERY PUT POSITIVE CABLE ON POSITIVE BATTERY POST THEN PUT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE ON NEGATIVE POST. HOOK BATTERY CABLES TO STARTER USE NEGATIVE CABLE GROUND STARTER BODY AND PUT POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE ON THE LARGE POSITIVE POST ON STARTER SOLENOID. NOW TAKE REMOTE SWITCH HOOK RED WIRE TO STARTER SOLENOID POSITIVE POST THEN HOOK BLACK WIRE TO REMOTE SWITCH TO STARTER SOLENOID SWITCH TERMINAL WITH LETTER S THEN PRESS REMOTE IF STARTER SPINS STRONG WITH A GOOD KICK STARTER GOOD.YOUR PROBLEM COULD BE CORRODED WORN BATTERY CABLES. WEAK BATTERY FAULTY IGNITION SWITCH. IF STARTER DONT WORK WHEN YOU PRESS THE REMOTE SWITCH STARTER SOLNOID BAD OR STARTER ITSELF BAD.IF ALL IS GOOD. CODE SCAN CAR FOR THEFT SECURITY FAULT CODE.

Lights come on but the car wont start


clean your battery terminals and all grounds to the battery cables and check if the battery has 12 volts to 14 volts if not charge the battery then load test it.
if the dash red lights go dim when you turn to start position your starter is bad or your battery is too low. You can have someone hold the key in the start position while you tap the corner of the starter housing and see if it turns over. The starter bushings are worn if it turns over.(needs starter replaced)If it does not go dim then the problem may be in the electrical switch for the ignition. The switched power to the starter solenoid comes directly from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid (purple) Test if you are getting power to the starter.
If not then check from the ignition switch mounted to the steering column. Make sure you pay attention to which wire goes to which post if you remove it for a bench test. If you get them backwards it wont do anything. .If oil leaking on the starter you will want to fix the oil leak so it doesnt ruin the starter probably valve cover gaskets leaking oil.

Car wont start. its not the battery because its new.


Well even a new battery can be drained down is you have something on all the time, in about an hour.

So start with checking for a drain.
Remove the battery cables in order to clean and grease them.
Then only put one on.
With everything off if you jump the gap of the cable that is off to the battery, with a test light, is should not light up. If it does, then you have a constant drain that will kill a batter over night.
You have to check for things like interior light, and disconnect everything, one at a time, to pin it down.

If you don't have a drain, then the next thing is to check continuity.
When you turn the ignition on, first the dash indicators come on.
The battery should read 12.5 volts.
Then you try to crank it.
The voltage should drop to 10 while cranking, and come back up after.
If it does not drop to 10, the starter is blocked and not drawing.
It could be the neutral safety switch, so try in neutral instead of park.
It could also be the ignition switch.
Use a test light to see of the small wire plugged into the starter solenoid (the small cylinder on top of the starter), get power when keyed to starter?
If it does not, then ignition switch or neutral safety switch.
If yes, then starter solenoid is probably bad.
But try turning the engine over at the alternator by hand or wrench, and try again. Could be binding between starter and drive plate.

Once you get it started, then rev the engine up and verify alternator goes over 14 volts, to recharge battery.
Otherwise battery will go dead in a day.

1500 Ram wont start, no crank no click nothing. Air cond and dash lights work just fine just wont start. Battery is ok tried to jump, no luck, put in different battery no luck.


First thing is to check is the ignition fuse/relay under the hood for a blown fuse or bad relay. If everything is ok then set parking brake with truck in park/netural and have someone to turn the ignition over to start and at the same time use a test light to check for fire at the starter solenoid. If no fire then the ignition switch or netural switch on transmission is causing the problem. If you do have power to the starter solenoid then the problem would be either the solenoid or the starter drive locked up on the flywheel. Be sure to remove the negative wire from the battery if you need to remove the starter. Hope this will help you.

94 sunbird will not start


Remove the smaller gauge wire from the solenoid, and put your test light on it while the ignition switch is being pushed into the "start" position. If the light turns on, the solenoid has gone bad.
