Question about 1992 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

My 1992 Nissan Pick up, V-6, 4 wheel Dr, Extended Cab, manual trans, Has intermitant/tempermental problem in starting. When I turn the key it does not always fire the engine. The dash lights, stereo each all work but it doesnt turn the engine over. I turn the key back and forth a number of times and it will ussually find the right spot and start right up, I changed the ignition assembly but that did not fix the problem. I understand there is an interlock on the clutch arm that is/has to be depressed or it will not allow the ignition to start the truck. I have tried to unplug this devise but am afriad it will break, i do not know how the connection devised is locked and I cannot see it to determine how. Also understand there is an interlock relay, could this be causing the problem and where is this relay located, how do i determine if it is bad, or the switch on the clutch arm is bad? anyway I appriciate anything you might give me as far as information. My son has this truck at college so I am not even there to look at it but i have messed with it before so I have him trying different stuff. What is the problem? What things should i do to determine what the problem is? Thank you

SOURCE: 1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

SOURCE: My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not

If you look under the hood, there is a starter relay that might be the problem - but more common than that, - Do you have an alarm system of anykind? If so, It sounds alot like that is the problem, and they are notorious for causing "no start" problems as such - Unfortunatey, the wiring for these (even to just remove one) can be rather involved (as they often cut the starter wire to install an interrupt) so you may have to take it to an auto electric shop, or one that specializes in alarm systems - Also, dealers sometimes install special "electronic lot key systems" in all of their new cars, requiring that the "electronic key" must be present in the vehicle (along with the correct physical key) in order for it to start - I'd check for one of those systems as well - Hope that helps...

I can not turn my ignition switch i turn the steering wheel and it lock up on me


Wheel pressure on the sterring column will prevent the key from turning to start position, Try turning the wheel hard to the left to release the pressure before turning the key to start . If that doesnt do it then try to the right.
Before turning car off make sure the wheels are straight or take your hands off of the sterring wheel before you turn your key to the off position.
Lots of luck Jack

I am trying to locate the fuel filter on a 1992 4 wheel drive extended cab Pick up


It should be in the engine bay, on the right hand side, it should be a metal one, if its not replace it with the right one.( it should also be metal, to allow for flow pressure) If its not there, try near your fuel tank, once again this one should be metal.

Same problem. 1992 nissan kingcab with v-6. starter and battery good-had them tested. Wires clean. new ignition switch-needed it. turned over once, once only still clicks when key is turned. Help


By wires clean do you mean battery termanal wires?
This sounds way to much like the battery cable ends need to be cleaned. Not only the inside of the termanal ends but the posts as well as take the ends off the cables and clean the copper wires where they connect. Then follow the positive cable to the solinoid and check connections coming in and going out to the starter. Check where it connects to the starter and tighten if needed. If none of these does the trick will it start with a jump? If not will it start with a push if it is a standard shift? Let me know how it turns out, Good Luck, The Raz
