Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
The alarm is going off?
Vehicle started just fine then suddenly would not. Replaced the clutch switch and starter, no luck
What makes you think you have a alarm problem if the alarm is not going off
It doesn't even turn over?
No, just relays clicking in start position. Battery is fine and the vehicle will push start just fine
Is it fast clicking?
No clicking in run position (key), clicks when placed in start position
right, when you put turn the key to the crank position, you get fast clicking correct?
Just clicks one time when you first place it in crank position then nothing else
Just one click,
That could be a sign of bad starter
Try this and see what happens
See if you can get someone to help you.
Have someone turn the key and hold it in the crank position, while you or the person helping taps the starter with a hammer.
Don't whack it, just tap at it
If the starter engages, then you know you need a starter.
Just put a brand new starter in about two hours ago
I was not aware of that
do you have a volt meter?
started tracing electrical. have no power at 7.5 amp fuse in drivers compartment labled starter. no voltage at switch for cluch
new clutch switch also
you only get power at that fuse when the key is in the crank position
Do you have a volt meter?
The gray connector at the starter.
Unplug it, and on the harness side, put your red lead, and just put the black lead to ground.
Then turn the key and hold it in the crank position
and see how many volts you have
and let me know
give me a few minutes
you got it
Did you check the inhibitor relay?
not sure what or where that is
here is where it's located
Can you read a wiring diagram?
a little history....the day that this happened we were sitting in a parking lot waiting on my son, in the mean time my daughter was sitting on the back bumper and I pressed in the clutch to roll back a little. She pushed the vehicle forward then I started it up reverse it. We did this two more times, however on the third time of starting the vehicle back up it just clicked. I assumed the clutch safety switch went out and replaced it, then the starter and now where we are at. Figured I may have engaged the anti theft somehow. Yes I can read it
I have no idea why that happened, but that is not the anti theft system
Hang on, let me get you the diagram. 1 sec
I have the diagram on location and can read it fine now what
Jump pins 3 and 5 on the inhibitor relay and see if the truck starts. Click here to download the wiring diagram
problem solved, will buy a new relay this afternoon
Well we just by passed it as a check
so is this not the problem
If you look at the wiring diagram you need to see if pin number one has continuity to ground when the clutch petal is pressed
voltage or ohm
It could be, but if you can verify you have power at pin 2 and good ground at pin 1 when the clutch pedal is pressed, then yes the relay is no good
will check it no
Voltage at pin 2, and ohms to ground on pin 1 with the clutch pedal pressed
power at pin 2 and cant get a reading at all for ground on pin 1
pin 1 is the ground
for that relay
The goes through the clutch switch
I understand it's new, but maybe it's not adjusted right or something
checked voltage pin 1 to pin 2, no reading. Checked voltage pin 2 to batt ground, 12.67
yeah you should have power at pin 2
verified that clutch is engaging switch completely when depressed
now you just need to figure out pin 1's problem to ground and that should resolve your problem
Did you download the wiring diagram to see
what I am saying
yep i got it, will track it down
You got it! At least we have the problem narrowed down
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!
