There are a few things that could cause this, so start with the simplest thing first. I would recommend that you check the fuse panel and make sure all of your fuses are good, remember that there are two fuse panels, one inside the cabin of the vehicle, and one under the hood. If the fuses are good, then you are looking at a faulty cam sensor, crankshaft sensor, O2 sensor, or the PCM.
All of the above can cause the inability to start. I would have a diagnostic ran on the vehicle, this will take the guess work out of it, and will save you a lot of money.

My 2000 xterra just stoppped running going down the road like it just turned off. The battery is good turns just doesn't fire up. The fuel filter is not clogged. The fuel pump is working...

I use to have a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder XE with the 3.0 engine automatic transmission. It ran fine when I baught it then started having hard to crank or dieing going down the road syndrome. Very simular to your problem. I had a Nissan technician friend in Tennessee and he told me that the distributor goes bad it will behave that way. Usually the problem can start off slow like mine where it would hard to start and die or just go completely out. I recommend replacing the distributor. Mark the shaft alignment before removing the old one and install the new one aligned up the same as the old one was. Just an added tip the 3.0 Litre engine block is the same as the 3.3 litre engine and theres alot of guys dropping these 3.3 engines in the old 1980 model 300Z cars! I own a 2001 Xterra so feel free to ask anything! Harlan or

I ran my 2000 xterra dry, put gas in the tank and it still wont crank. where is the fuel reset button located?

There is no fuel reset button. You either burnt out the fuel pump relay or burnt out the relay and fuel pump.

2000 Nissan XTerra Electrical Probs

With your battery installed, turn on your head lights and see if they light up. If so, you most likely have a bad ignition switch.(not the key lock, but the actual switch )
It isn't a terribly expensive part, but will cause weird stuff if it fails.

Tries to turn over but will not crank. Electrical

If it is getting spark - it could be a fuse or relay for the fuel pump..
Or it could be the fuel pump..

Have a great day !

Engine doesn't turn over

if your engine is carburetor type, your choke is not working. if the engine is fuel injected, the cold start device is not working.
