Question about 2001 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

I have a 2001 nissan altima. Today, for the first time, my car wouldn't start. When I cranked the car it started then the engine shut off a second or two later. Just to make sure it wasn't the battery I tried getting a jump. The jump didn't get the car started. Could it be a problem with the fuel or ignition system or anything else?

Could be the starter. Also how are your batter connections? Nice and tight and clean?? If so than check the single wire going into the starter. Not the battery cable, but the small wire that goes into the solenoid. Unplug that wire and put volt meter into the connector on the harness side and check for 12V, while you turn the ignition to "START" position. If 12V is present, suspect the starter.

SOURCE: CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR 20002 NISSAN ALTIMA

1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.

My 2006 Altima used to be HORRIBLE. The engine would sometimes be hard to start. Bucked like crazy. It would stall randomly if I was stopped or driving slowly (stopping or going for a light, while slowing down during turns). After a couple calls, over a period of months, checking for recalls they finally said there was a recall on the entire engine. Thank goodness my car was still under its 100K miles. Nissan fixed it, as they should. They also claimed the crank sensors needed to be replaced & that my engine mount was cracked. We just paid for all that b/c we were finally glad to have the engine problem resolved free of charge. Loooong story short, have your local dealer check for recalls.
