Well it may sound stupid but check your cigarette lighter to see if there are any coins in there, they can do alot of damage. If thats ok, it sounds like your multifunction switch. It is located in the steering column. It is where your turnsignals are connected to. You would have to take off the plastic cover on the steering column to see what is going on, be careful and good luck.

Could be a bad battery or your battery cables could be loose or corroded so there is little power getting to the starter.Check all battery cables at both ends and might even have to take the cables off the battery and clean the connections hook up to the battery.

Hi ,
Sounds like you burned a "fuse able link". If you open your hood and look going away from the battery at all the wires you probably will see which wire melted. These links are designed to prevent major wiring harness fires. So you have a major dead short in your wiring. It would be difficult to lead you through the tracing down of the short but with a careful eye you may be able to see the bad wire as it will show signs of arcing. Good Luck!!!!!

1993 NX. Have to crank engine for 15-20 seconds


What happens if you try turning your key just to on,(not start) and off, 2 or 3 times, and then try to start? If it starts up better, have your fuel filter changed, and if still need to turn on & off 2 or 3 times, then start, have fuel pressure tested. If it doesn't help at all, get back to me.
