Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi. There are 2 common issues for this. Either the brake switch or the starter itself. When you step on the brakes do the rear brake lights come on?
I also meant to add that you have to check for brake light operation when the vehicle is not starting.
Sorry, my first post did not go through. The 2 common problems for this no start are the brake switch or the starter. When the vehicle is not starting, when you step on the brake pedal, do the brake lights come on?
Ok. typically the starter would not set the check engine light. COuld be unrelated. You can have the code checked with a scan tool. Also is the vehicle starting now?
You can replace the starter yourself. But what would be a good idea is to verify that voltage is getting to the starter before replacing it. There are 2 wires on the starter. There is a larger wire which should have power all the time. The smaller wire, should only have power when the button is pushed to START the car. You can check for power with a test light.
I can get the workshop manual instructions in pdf format if you need. I can send you an offer for the instructions through Just Answer if you would like. Just let me know. THanks.
