Try wiggeling the wires on the battery side, fire wall, while someone trys to start it , it could be one of those relays or clumps of wires ,it happened to me 10 miles in the woods , i moved those wires around and it started right up, if not see if you can jump start it from the relay with the key on , if not check the starter wire to the starter , if not check for a good ground it has to be grounded on the engine block not on the body or frame,

That must be the security system. Check your owner's manual for a reset procedure. Most people will tell you your best bet is the dealership-only they have the electronic testing equipment and expertise to work on factory installed security, especially so if any reprogramming is required. I don't know if that's the case, the owner's manual may shed some light.

My 95 sierra dies and won't start. no lights on dash then suddenly lights come on and truck will start. please help.


first check the connections at the battery. make sure there is no corrosion between the cable end and the battery.

When you say it wont start can you hear the starter cranking the engine over or is the vehicle completely dead?

If its completely dead I would check for power to the ignition switch. if there is power than I would check for power out of the switch. If there is no power than possible the ignition switch is failing.

I might be able to get you some wiring info if needed. just let me know.

My 2005 nissan altima wont start, no power, no lights come on. had the battery tested and it is fine.


Most often the battery cables as they connect to the battery get dirty and they can look clean and not make it so clean them anyway. If the car was jumped started wrong the main fuse can be blown and no power gets to the dash. Test light at the big power wire on the back of the altenator if its dead it's not going to start or light any of the dash lights either.

No start condition new battery , good starter, turn key to start position light come on dash, go forward to start light go out and you hear click under dash area like relay, no power getting to starter....


no starter relay is always at the fuse relay box at the engine compartment. The relay that you hear is the relay for the accessories to turn off the power during starting position.
