Is your car an automatic? If it is, the most likely cause is the safety switch is not properly engaged when you put the shift into Park. Try pushing the shifterall the way up hard till the stop, or push the shifter to Neutral then turn the ignition key.

In automatic transmision, there is a built in safety switch preventing the engine from starting when the gear lever is not in Park or Neutral. Over time, the switch wears out and you dont get proper contact to make a closed circuit. Hope this works for you.

It sounds like the ignition switch has failed, to test this go to the starter and have someone hold the key in the start position, see if there is 12 volts (use a test light) at the starter solenoid, if not check the switch, do you have a aftermarket alarm, they are famous for these kinds of problems of no crank, as they interrupt the signal to the starter, if you do have one disconnect it.

Try looking at the relay in the power distribution box under hood or a blown fuse.

THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR CAR COULD BE A BAD KEY TRY ANOTHER KEY YOUR CAR HAS THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE SYSTEM BEST TO HAVE CAR SCAN TO CHECK THE THEFT SECURITY MODULE AND THE TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH IF ITS BAD STARTER WONT WORK.ALSO CHECK THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE RELAY. BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE YOUR RADIO PLAYING CODE.

I have a 1988 Nissan Sentra. When I turn the key


Your problem is definately not a relay. It sounds as if the starter contact in your ignition switch is bad. The solution is to replace the ignition switch.

check the switch that the clutch actuates.your ignition sounds like it works.some cars also must be in neutral if yours does the wires for this will plug into the transmission.you can bypass the switch at that point.

1991 nissan stanza starter problems


Hi Jim.

When you turn the key, you should at least hear the starter solenoid click. When you turn the key the ignition switch sends 12 volts to the Starter solenoid ( really just a relay). The Solenoid closes and applies 12 volts (at a high current) to the starter motor to crank the engine. If you have a way to measure voltage, you should get 12 volts at the small terminal on the starter solenoid. The solenoid is mounted on the top of the starter motor.If you get 12 volts but no cranking, the solenoid is not working. If you get 12 volts and the starter doesn't crank the starter is defective. At this [point take a small hammer and tap the starter motor, not hard, just medium. Sometimes this will cause the starter motor to catch next time you turn the key. Best bet is to remove the starter motor (with solenoid attached) and take it to an Auto Zone type store where they can check it out for you. Be dure you disconnect the ground terminal of the battery before you attempt to remove the starter motor.

Hope this helps Good luck loringh PS Please leave a rating for me if appropriate Thks
