Question about 2000 Nissan Altima

2 Answers

Electrical problems when starting

I thought that I had a dead battery because the car wouldn't start and so I replaced the battery. Car started once and then never again. Had towed to a shop and they replaced the battery terminals. Car worked fine for about a week and then one night went to crank and all the power went off. Messed with the cables and the accessories came on and went to start and it all turned off. Once again and the car started and got home. Now it is dead in the garage and no matter how much I mess with anything it won't start and it kills all electricity. I traced a clicking that happened before the electricity cuts out to the inhibit relay. Battery is still charged and now I am not able to get any accessories to turn on.

There are 2 wires going into the relay box, right by the battery. They are white and pretty beefy. Those wies are held in / attached by 2 screws. you will have to somewhat open up the relay box to see those 2 white wires and 2 bolts. Those bolts hold the 100amp fusable link (main fusable link) . check those bolts and make sure they are tight. 8mm bolt heads.

This sounds like a loose or bad ground cable. This can be checked by attaching negative side of jumper cable to engine and negative terminal of battery. If this solves problem, replace cable.

Car will not start


this doesn't sound good at all. if you couldn't jump start it within a few minutes, you should have stopped right there. maybe you were jumpping the car wrong, from doing so, you may have fried the computer, that rounds your entire engine. try installing a new battery, if any codes were stored in the computer, clear them out. some times just removing the battery cables for a few minutes will do this . sometimes not. try to start the engine. donot jump start, see if will start on its own. if not, seek professional help, keep blaming goodyear until you get results !!!!!!

My 2004 Chrysler Pacifica won't start.


Try grounding the engine, they may have moved, removed, or broken the ground straps.

Take a jumper cable from the black(NEG) post to a bolt or clean piece of metal on the the engine.
And see if it starts.

Also check the connection at the starter, in case they had it disconnected during the repair.

Hope this helps.
