Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in the auto repair business with my own shops since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please be patient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.
I would check the ignition switch next, for power to the starter solenoid.
This may be caused by the security system. If you have access to a scan tool, now's the time to check it from there. Seeing that you already checked everything else so far.
Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
I'll opt out to see if another expert has seen this.
New expert here,my name is***** am an ASE master tech.
Sounds like you have a voltage drop problem in the main cable that leads to the starter. Peel back some insulation on this cable, how does it look? any corrosion, It might even be broken causing an open circuit.
Hopefully this helps you out. Thanks
If you are not getting voltage at the starter with the cable connected to the battery, you have a bad connection or you need to replace the cable.
You should have battery voltage at the starter with everything connected.
Please rate the answer it would be greatly appreciated, and feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.
Thanks have a great day! and good luck with your repair.
