Question about Nissan Altima

Open Question

1999 Altima A/T with factory alarm wouldn't start. Showed power from ignition, shorted out starter, car started. Swapped out 6-pin Inhibitor Relay switch, no start. Replaced Relay with a jumper between 5-6 pins (switch) and car starts. Put jumpers on all pins (1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6 with relay) and grounded #2 pin (ground side of relay coil) and car started, so believe problem is Neutral Safety Switch. Switch plug shows a bank of 5 pins in line and a bank of 4 pins in line but I can't find a schematic of the plug to try and ground to see if it's wiring up to the Safety Switch or the switch itself.

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

My '01 nissan altima won't start, won't crank but lights are on. if i jump the inhibitor relay, it starts right up. where should i be looking for the problem?


its in the starter circuit not the ignition--a part is old and gained resistence--hav a datastream run to pinpoint component--its a scan that uses factory equipment and displays values--done at private shops--dont go to a dealer--make sure tech has xperienc figuring readout----to find a shop go to surecritic.com

I have a 92 sentra lights come on but when i turn key nothing happens. Starter good ,relay good, head lights don't dim when you turn key . Car won't turn over at all


If by lights, you mean the dash lights come on, then ignition switch must be getting power. If dash is not working with key on, check the 30 amp fuse link which powers the ignition switch.
If switch is good and starter is good, the start wire from switch goes to, if automatic, to inhibitor relay (the park/neutral function) and then to starter. There is also an inhibitor switch on the shifter or on the transaxle that turns on the inhibitor relay when key is on and shifter in park or neutral. The inhibitor switch is powered by a 10 amp fuse D.
If you have a manual transmission, the start wire from ignition switch goes to the clutch interlock relay and then to the starter. This relay is turned on by the clutch interlock switch on the clutch pedal.
You can check for power on either relay, the inhibitor relay or the clutch interlock relay, with a test light. Pull the relay out, have the key held in start position. Now both relays would have power showing on two terminals where the relay plugs in. If inhibitor relay only has power on one terminal or no power at all, either ignition switch is not sending power or fuse D is out or the inhibitor switch is not working right. If clutch interlock switch does not have power on two terminals either the ignition switch is not sending power or the clutch interlock switch is bad.
If the relay checks are good, check for power on the small wire to starter with key held in start. If you have power there, the starter solenoid must be out.

My 1993 Toyota Tercel does not start when key is turned. New battery, all fuses checked and fine. When the doors get opened, hazard lights start blinking for 15 blinks, then pause, then 15 blinks. This...


This sounds like a starter disable feature of a car alarm. Somewhere under the dash you are going to find a box with the start wires running to it. The start wire is black with a white stripe and is thick, about a 12 gauge wire. It will come from the ignition switch and run into a relay or box. It could be installed anywhere as it is aftermarket. Once you find it, you can reconnect both ends of the starter wire and you can start it with the key. I would disconnect the power to the alarm or your lights are going to flash at random. The factory alarm (just in case it is the issue, but that isn't likely) is located behind the radio and ashtray.

My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not even a click. All lights are ok, stereo, wiper, etc. battery is only months old. I pulled out the starter, have it tested at Advance Auto Parts and it worked...


It is possible that the neutral safety switch needs to be replaced. This is on the transmission where the shifter connects to it. Unfortunately it could also be some of the other problems mentioned too , but as I only have this question locked to me for 30 min, could you possibly give me some more time and I will come back to you asap on how you can test this switch first and go from there.

Thank you for your patience
