Question about 1990 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Wont start, battery has juice

Turn key on, everything lights up normal on the dash board, but the engine doesn't even try to turn over. Tried a jump start, nothing, but the battery does show that it has juice (according to AAA). Yes it is in 'PARK' (in case anybody is wondering; not in 'D or R', I'm not ignorant. HAHA.
I was wondering could it be the starter?
Hoping for responce and waiting.
Thanx

Won't start. plenty of juice. Won't start, even with a jump. Very rapid clicking and all dash lights strong.


The clicking sound indicates that there is insufficient charge reaching the starter motor to turn over the engine. If you have enough charge going into the starter, use a multi-meter to check, test at no load and under load. Then check your terminals on the battery and starter to ensure all are clean and tightened properly.

Why wont my Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited start?


Sounds like you have a bad alternator. Not recirculating juice back to the battery.

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?


Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

Car will not start when ignition key is turned. All warning lamps light up, enginee doesn't even try to start even with the clutch depressed


1. So the car was running normally and then on one occasion you put in the key to start it and all the warning lights flash up on the dash and the starter motor will not turn the engine over. Is that correct.

2. When you last drove the car were any warning lights appearing on the dash.such as check engine warning, engine overheating, electrical charging warnings etc.\

3. Has any work been carried out on the car recently.

4. How old is the battery in the car.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

My hyundai santa fey has just lost all electrics.Drove it fine to shop turned engine off. went to turn it back on nothing -no lights nothing from the battery even the key doesn`t work.tried jump start but...


i would start by checking the connections on the battery and having the battery tested, also why where you taking it to the shop?, if the connection are dirty a jump start wont work, they may look clean but loosen them and twist them on battery terminals to make good connection then tighten them ,and make sure battery is fully charged,

It wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens


sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
