Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

2 Answers

Starting problems I have had intermittent starting problems for six months now and usually a ignition switch off then on a few times and it would start.Now the starter will not engage,no click,lights do not dim when trying to start. New battery,cables are clean and tight. I'm thinking ignition switch or starter but would like a professional opinion. Thanks-Wayne

    1996 nissan sentra: last night I drove to home and park. This morning engine did not work. Starter is OK but do not fire.

    What should I check.

    Fuel flows in hoses.

    Sparks comes to plugs.

    Your tips will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

My car recently had starter problems. It would make a weird sound when i started the car and then one day it wouldn't start at all. it wasn't the battery because the lights were working and so was the radio. I had the starter replaced for about $200 and now its starting a lot better.

Not a professional, but I have an '03 now to replace the '94. I had to replace the starter & it also 'croaked' on the road, after much grief..

2004 nissan frontier intermittent starting problem with shift lock


Shift lock is just a safety feature, so you have your foot on the brake, when you put it in gear. It has nothing to do with starting the car. Intermittent starting problems can be a few different things. Ignition switch, park/neutral safety switch, wiring, and corrosion. If it clicks when trying to start, it cold be loose/corroded battery cables or a bad battery.

Let's see if there is really a diagnostic expert out there for this... 1996 Plymouth Voyager 3.3L engine with 165,000 miles. I'm having intermittent starting problems. I can drive for weeks and no...


The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

Turn the key but nothing happens all electrics


Not all replacement parts are good. I would guess that the new ignition switch is bad. Its also possible that the wiring harness is loose where its connected to the ignition switch. You could try jiggling the wires.

Intermittent starting


Charlie, let me just say...wow! That is ALOT of starts! Fords are good vehicles if they are taken care of. It does seem like an ignition switch problem and those aren't fun to repair. I shouldn't have to tell you that it involves getting into the steering column, and such. My buddy just had the same problem with his F150 about 6 months ago and it was the ignition switch. Maybe there needs to be a CN (customer notification) on this problem. Seems to happen alot on these. Good luck!

Ignition switch


Next time this happens leave the key in the on position, open the hood and lift the fuel solenoid link (between the fuel solenoid and the injection pump) up. If it stays up the truck will start and run. The solenoid is shot but that might be a symptom of set of bad starter contacts.

The contacts start to pit bad enough that the power back feeds through fuel solenoid. Larry B is a good source for the parts to fix these problems: http://www.fostertruck.com/dodge/default.htm
