Question about 2001 Nissan Altima

2 Answers

Starting Hi my car will not start. At first it was just hard start with and now it will not start at all. When I turn the key in the "on/but not start" position. Nothing on the dash lights up. I am thinking ignition switch or bad starter connection. I am a girl and do not want to be totally in the dark when I bring it into the shop.

Hi cbowen,

I think that you'll be wise to get the battery checked before you do anything else...Open the hood and check for oxidization on the terminals....that's a whitish deposit around the connections... Fit a new battery or just charge up the one which you have and replace the battery connectors....

If that fails let us know and we'll see what we can do

All the best and good luck

Sounds like either weak battery or a weak starter not turning it over quick enough. Check thoses areas first and then go to the ignition switch and check

Hard starting sometimes.have to spray starting fluid in throttle plate to start


If the pump relay is working and the pump runs when you turn the key on, it could be the check valve in the pump. The valve could be allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the tank when the engine is off.

Automatic choke problem


93 mirage doesnt have a choke, it is fuel injected! What exactly do you mean by hard to start? Does it take longer than normal to start, does it initially crank slower than normal? You could try cycling the key before attempting to start it! By this i mean, thrn the key to RUN, wait a couple seconds, turn key to off, turn back to run, wait a couple seconds,, turn to off, then attempt to start! See what that does!

Try spark plugs, they are a very common problem and will cause loss of performance hard starting, and engine failure. Inexpensive place to start troubleshooting

Car will not acept key


take key out of console. Then push down fairly hard on the insert-turn key area, it goes down about 1/2 inch----, while ---,,taking your other hand--push your finger into the base where the key would be--push down lightly your finger will go about 3 inches past the base-down to the bottom.

slowly pull your finger out ,, release pressure on the insert key -turn key area to the front of the key base area..

Now ,,put the key in the console key holder -turn to the right -Kazooom you are good for go. !

If this does not work ,,loosen the negative battery cable,with key in console ,disconnect for 30 seconds,, replace cable.. try to start . If not starting do the above procedure again as the computer memory is now blank.

Best bet,,BEFORE disconnecting any battery connection put the key in the console turn to the right, short of cranking the starter.Keep the key in this position
Then Disconnnect the battery--

When battery is reconnected, wait 3 minutes, then try the key for starting this usually works wonders. Doors must be closed,,, foot on brake pedal when starting..

My 1995 ford explorer has a hard time starting. I have a new battery and alternator in. Could it be my starter.


Hi,
Sounds kinda vague. Hard starting, like cranking and cranking? Or no cranking?

Clicking/hard to start


Hi!!
When you turn the ignition key to the RUN position and the engine turns over slowly or do not turn over at all and all you hear a clicking noise, it means the battery is drained, Jump Start vehicle and take it to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar AutoParts and have Starting/Charging system checked, they do this at no cost to you.
Good Luck!! Keep me posted!!
