Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central everyday. Please let me know exactly what you need from this conversation so you will want to rate me with EXCELLENT 5 STAR service.
Sorry about the long delay, do you still need help?
Can I get the year, make, and model?
Thanks, ***** ***** it shuts off then no power?
Nothing has power, including the radio and headlights?
Since you lose all power to everything. Pretty confident we can rule out the ignition switch and theft system. The headlights for example do not go through the ignition switch and the theft system prevents starting but does not effect the power. SO we need to see what has power and what does not, during this 2 minute period. Do fuses 32 and 33 under the dash have power when the car shuts down and the headlights will not even work?
Hello again Chris here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears your not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.
Thanks for the new details. Do you own a a scan tool to see which codes are stored?
During this 2 minute downtime will the radio work?
I keep asking about what has power and what does not because I am trying to find a circuit to back trace and determine why its down if you were wondering.
Okay you start the car, it runs 5 minutes, it just shuts off, the key is still on. Under the passenger side of the dash does fuse 9 retain power on both test points on the top of the fuse, how about fuse 8 under the drivers side of the dash?
You do not have a diagnostic tool (Honda PGM Tester) to diagnose the security light and the security light can not stop power to most of the car. The security system prevents starting the vehicle, it should not shut the vehicle off.
So do you want to do electrical tests on the ignition switch?
You tell me how you want to diagnose this issue and that is what I will do.
Sorry you were not able to check the power on the 2 fuses I needed you to check. Sorry you paid for help but have decided to leave without getting the help due to lack of tools or skills. Best of luck
