Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi im kevin what actually happens when the key is turned to start position?
I dont have specific info on your model to guide with this type of fault il opt out another tech will assist
hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Do you know if you have Remote start? What is the car doing when you try to start it?
The engine is turning over but not starting? Is that what it is doing?
Try stepping on the Accelerator all the way and turn the engine over. If it starts to catch, then slowly back off the accelerator pedal and see if it starts.
I think it's just flooded.
When you press the accelerator all the way, it kills injector pulse so no fuel can go into the engine. So if it's flooded, holding the pedal all the way will help dry out the cylinders. But if it attempts to start, you want to let off the accelerator pedal so it can get fuel
Those warning lights are normal when the ignition is on. That is called bulb check
I would try one more time. It almost started that last time right?
That pretty much verifies that it is flooded. Go try again..
Since you have push button start, what I want you to do to keep the engine turning is to press and hold the start button down for around 10 seconds, unless it starts of course. When you hold the start button down, the starter will stay engaged longer.
When you turn the key to the ON position, is the security light on solid?
That is most likely just condensation coming out.
When it starts, are you still holding down the accelerator pedal? or are you releasing it as it starts?
Try releasing it as it starts, not once it starts.
And try only stepping on the pedal a little and see if starts?
Did you get the car started? I have not heard back from you
Did you get gas recently before this happened?
Do you recall if you had a Service Engine Soon light on last when the car was running?
How handy are you? I am starting to think the throttle plate maybe stuck or you have a bad throttle chamber.
Let me know..
Based on what it sounds like, there is a electronic throttle chamber issue. This is something you would need to have checked and verified if you are unable to do the checks your self.
