2000 Nissan Altima XE need drive cycle to pass smog test after disconnecting battery


If you take your car to smog check station and they talk about drive cycle,that means you need to drive you car on the street at speed of 25 to 35 mph then take it to the freeway and accelerate to get the speed of the rest cars and drive you car at 55 to 65 mph then take it down to the street again and drive a little more the turn it off, this is what the mechanics call drive cycle after this the car if everything is right I mean if there is no any damaged sensor the onboard computer get all the info from the sensors and is ready to the test

Solid red dot came on right side. Now turn key and nothing


3.7L gas or Diesel? (know what you are driving?)
jump start it , call AAA and do that.
or uses your jumper cables, buy them and keep them hidden in car at all times.
battery lugs all white with corrosion, clean them.
wiggle shifter yet.? while cranking?
try to crank it, in Neutral not park , yet?
cranking takes 20 times the current than headlights. or more diesel.
and 1000s times DING power. so means nothing.

what light the glove box oper guide tells you all lamps
book is free if lost (ask)
30 objects, which one is RED?
on my 08 the solid red (has no mark) is SKIM immobilzer light.
(its a stealth light on purpose) #20 is left. (kills fuel not cranking)



25474689-nm5j4bbnbv1totvdynd4zlxy-2-0.jpg
did you mean, the Charge lamp was ON, just before the ENGINE
died, lamp #10 , THAT MEANS the charge system failed.
and that cause the battery to DISCHARGE.
and then engine must die. (all cars)
charge the battery and cure #10 lamp warning true cause.
never drive and ignore warning lamps if you in fact did.

how'd I do?

Check engine light, car slows down


the engine light came on and the sensors immediately put the car in limp mode reducing the power to allow you to pull over and do the vital checks (oil -water and engine temperature ). have the fault codes read to see which sensor put the lights on.

My BMW X5 2008 airconditioning wont work after driving through heavy rain and deep puddles


how deep of water were you in??if the alternator belt got wet as did all the belts.. they wont "hook up" untill they dry enough to grab..did your battery light or check engine light activate? this means your car was running on the battery until the belts dry out enough to reconnect without sliding over the pulleys..when this happens all power goes to the engine..

I was driving at speed of 35mph and my 2005 Hyundai Accent the slowed down and stopped driving in the middle of the street-lights and radio work - when I tried to crank it, the crank ended in a wheeeeeeer...


if the engine has stopped and when you try to start, it turns over fast but no ignition is looks like your timing belt has gone. open the bonnet and open the oil filler cap. with second person starting the engine. ifyou look inside where the oil gets filled and you you dont see the cam turning this indicates the belt is not turing. if it is turning then it is a different issue. these belts should be changed at set periods on your service schedule usually around 100000 miles. you might be luck if this is the case that only the belt needs to be put on and timing set up. if not you may have a damaged engine as the pistons may have hit valves as they where not syncronised due to the belt failure.


i hope this was useful

Intermittant warning light after hitting pothole. When accelerating lose all dash including speedometer and tacometer.


My first guess would be a wiring problem in the engine compartment. Something is breaking contact when the engine moves back and forth.
Could be something around the battery or alternator, or a ground wire.

Service engine light stays on


the check engine ligth just means you are not passing emissions right now. Coud be due to loose fill cap at some time, or filling the tank with the key on.
Try disconnecting the battery ground cable for an hour. Then reconnect and drive for 10 miles until computer relearns engine changes. It may run rough for 10 miles.

If still on, go to Autozone and ask them to perform a free computer scan & get the fault code. It will tell you which sysem to check.

There may be a few things you can do, to fix the knock before it gets worse.
The worst case is
If the knock is a deep sound and is loud, that indicates the rod bearings are worn out, and pretty soon the bearings will fail, and most likely the car will leave you stranded.
