Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have A 2012 Frontier with about 125k miles. A few weeks ago I turned the truck off and it when I got back in to start it turned over for a few seconds but wouldn't crank. I turned the key off and tried again. It turned over for a few seconds and it started. Never thought about it again. This morning I stared the truck and let it idle for a while before putting in gear. I put it I gear to leave and it died. Now it will only turn over but not crank. I am thinking it may be a weak battery causing the theft system to not work properly. Never mmustnd on battey..Just put on new battery and same thing. Tried starting fluid and no fIre. Pulled coil of plug and checked to see if it was firing and couldn't see spark. Seems to be electrical. Don't know what fuse to check...if any.
I haven't tried your advise yet but was wondering if were one one the cam sensors would it die after idling for a few minutes as it did.
Dumb question but how the hell di I unplug the sensor? Do you have a diagram to make sure I am on the correct sensor?
Was able to unplug driver side....Won't start. Can't find passenger side. Is there a "scan tool" of some kind that may help me that I could get from autozone? Also, not sure if it matters but when this all started I noticed that both trip meters reset. Thought that was a little weird.
Went and got a scan tool but it tells me there is a "link error"....it wouldnt communicate with truck. Thought maybe a bad tool but connected to my wife's 2014 altima and it worked. I changed the crankshaft sensor...it was cheap and easy enough but no luck. Also was able to find the passenger side cam sensor but was couldn't unplug it. It wouldn't come loose....any suggestions?
