can you hear this through the stereo?  If so you may have a problem created somewhere in your ignition , where the stereo is picking up a fluctuating signal.

SOURCE: I need a replacement key for 1997 Nissan Sentra

Two ways...Nissan puts the key code on a piece of white tape and sticks it on the inside of the glove box door. However, someone could have pulled it off at some point. Check there first. Secondly, the original owners paperwork should have the key code on it. If you are not the original owner, or do not have access to that person, but know the dealer where the car was originally sold, they would have the paperwork on file, they probably do not have a way to cross reference the serial #, so you would likely have to know the original owners name in order for them to look up the archived deal and get the number from the paperwork. The only other suggestion I might have is to get a locksmith to cut you a key. Good luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful! Check the glovebox!

Turn on the hazard switch to check if the bulbs light up. If they do, the problem is probably with the headlight switch itself.

I had my nissan diagnosed for battery, starter, and altenator. They were fine, but my car still starts when it wants to.. Sometimes it start and sometimes it doesn't turn over..


This sounds like you have a bad ground somewhere, check the main grounds to your starter and engine and see if you can find one that is loose.

Troubleshooting alternater for 1997 nissan sentra - alternator is good and battery is good also ,but it still will not keep the battery charged while running


Check the wiring between the alternator and the battery, especially at the battery end there is a fusable link there that might be blown.

You could have faulty altenator or short causing the battery to drain. The engine light usually comes on when anything electrical or sensor wise is faulty. Brake light will come on if, low brake fluid, e-brake handle is up.

Car starts with jump and drives but wont start by itself


well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)
