Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
To clarify, your car is a 1988 Altima?
I think the first year of the Altima in the american market was 1993. Is your car a grey market import or something?
Ok. That makes much more sense. The 1999 altima doesn't have a collision switch that cuts off the fuel pump or starting system. The function of shutting off the fuel pump after and accident is performed by the vehicle's PCM.
So to clarify, the engine will crank but not start?
Do you have a scan tool to check for communication with the computer?
Sorry, Just Answer had you listed as off-line so I called it a night.
Can you tell if the fuel pump is running? You should be able to hear an audible buzz from the fuel pump each time the key is turned to the run position. This will last for about 3 seconds.
