Replace the sparks plugs, if the car is failing on one cylinder it will be hard to start.
Check the air intake and the air filter, if air filter is dirty replaced, only to test the car try starting with intake open and no air filter, if it starts it is an air intake problem.
Check the fuel filter and check that fuel have pressure, if fuel has no pressure it is either a faulty pump or an obstructed pipe.

Common cause for car not starting is distribution, with distribution rotor you often have to replace distributor cap or coil.
If it is electronic distribution you have to scan distribution module.

If you have an anti theft system, this can also cause the car not to start, usually you unlock anti theft with car key.

If it is none of the above, it can be a car computer problem, the car computer module (ECU) can be scanned using a code reader at any good garage, in this case the mechanic will get error codes from car ECU and be able to troubleshoot further the problem.

Why when i start my car some time it dosnt start up straight away all the lights on panel is on but the engine wont start up

Lights on the dashboard will show up when the ignition is turned on (when your key is half-way turned). They dont need the engine to be running for them to work.

If your engine wont start, it can be numerous things. It is best to let a mechanic to look at it.

My 1996 nissan quest gxe wont even power solinoid or starter when i turn key.dash lights come on only im positive its the factory security can i reset it

this alarm system is reset with the key being turned in the door, lock and unlock the driverside door and then see if it starts if not then do the same to the pass/side and see if it starts if it doesnt then you may have a bad starter, the best thing to do is check for power at the small wire on the starter if theres power to the small wire with the key in the crank postion and there should be power on small wire if there is then replace the starter, hope this helps.

My P Reg Nissan Micra wont start. It was working

Sounds like a fuel issue if you have run it dry, maybe a blocked fuel filter, or maybe it needs new spark plugs, check the air filter as well.

Car died the other day, and now it wont start. Everything such as dash and radio seem to be working fine.

hi there the things to check are do you have a spark at the plugs?
do you have compression ?
are the cam shafts turning?
is the cam belt intact?
this are all needed to make the engine run it will turn over great but not start with this things not working infact if the last 3 are not there it will sound diffrent when you are turning it over with the key.

hope this helps Regards JR
