Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
The car is not with you right now to do some checks?
With this type of issue, I would like to know what light you were trying to tap into, and the color wire so I can see what circuit that is affecting.
Do you recall that information?
Do you know what color wire it was in the tail light connector? not the color meter leads?
Hold on.. Let me see
There is no Brown or White wire. The Black wire is the ground, that won't short anything
Can we do this? Can we wait till the car returns so you can remove the tail light to refresh your memory so you can tell me exactly what color wire you probed, and take pictures and share images with me so I can help you determine what you may have done?
I can keep this question open till you can do this. Does that work for you?
Ok.. Talk to you tomorrow.
Just Return back to this question so we can continue. I will not be online after 3 pm EST. I will be out for the evening. Worst case if I don't connect with you tomorrow, I will be here all day on Thursday.
So you know my schedule.
Does that work for you?
Ok then. Talk to you tomorrow or Thursday
Just return back to this question. Do you know how to do that?
Have a good evening and we will talk when you have the car back.
Sure that will be fine
What color wire was it exactly now?
Ok, The Red wire with the Green Stripe is for the Brake lights.
When you turn the key to the ON position, does the engine fans kick on?
you got it. Let me know
Well if the fans are not on when the key is in the On position, then the issue is most likely not a Ecm. Since you are getting a signal click, that is a sign of a bad starter. Or were you getting rapid clicking?
Rapid clicking is a sign of a weak battery. Try jumping the car again, but leave the car that is jump starting you running and hooked up to your car for around 10 mins before you try to start it and see if it starts.
ok.. I will be here in the Evening after 7 pm EST till 10 or 11 pm so you know when I will be online.
Talk to you tomorrow.
Ok.. That is good. But your not getting any clicking now? or are you getting a single clicking?
Do you have a scanner to monitor the Park Neutral switch position?
The gray connector at the starter. Lets unplug that and on the harness side of the connect, lets see if we have power when the key is turned to the Crank position.
that is the Alternator, not the starter.. Then engine doesn't turn over right? We need to check power at the starter connector when the key is in the Crank position.
Sorry for the delay. Having technical issues on my end.
All i want you to do is unplug that gray connector and see if it's getting power when the key is turned to the Crank Position
Sorry for the Delay. Yesterday was my birthday and I was pulled out of the house to celebrate.
Did you unplug that gray plug and see if you have voltage when the key is turned to the Crank Position?
So the car starts now? Just the instrument cluster is not working? Does any of the dash warning lights come on if you turn the key to the ON position?
Do you have a scanner to monitor the and see if you can communicate with the unified meter?
