It will not start....
It will not start. Sounds like it is not getting fuel. The fuel pump was replaced yet the same result. Checked all the fuses as well.
JA: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?
Customer: I have a 2004 Armada. I checked the one under the hood. Where is the other one
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have a couple of mechanics on it. We changed the fuel,pump and check the fuse box under the hood
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?

The hesitation was not all of the time, but did occur often over the past few months. Thought that it might be the plugs but it is firing okay, just not getting gas and not starting.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

ok. have you checked for injector pulse?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is that the button under the hood? If so, the mechanic did and he said no air came out
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Which fuse box contains the fuel pump fuse?
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

if he doesnt know what injector pulse is, maybe he shouldnt be working on your car? im sorry. just my opinion

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, ( I ) don't know what it is. He has gone home for the evening.
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

to check injector pulse you unplug each injector and put a noid light in the connector then crank the car and the noid light should flash

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, that was not done.
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

ok im sorry......do you happen to have a noid light?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am not so inclined mechanically. I have no idea what that is.
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

ok....at least we can check the fuse. allow me a sec

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The mechanic checked all of the fuses under the hood and said that they were fine.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'll have him recheck them tomorrow. Are there any other possibilities? Will a diagnostic computer shed any light on the matter?
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

theres all kinds of possibilties, but without knowing what all has been done..its tough. if he has a scan tool that would help tremendously

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
They are going to scan it tomorrow. Only things done today was replacing fuel pump and checked injector deal under the hood.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Last question: are any fuses in the other box relevant to this matter?
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

i will take a look for you

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

have the mechanic check for spark at all cylinders also

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
If that doesn't work, do you think that that the fuel pump is bad? J got it online.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Just saw were the old fuel pump is working its ass off. Therefore, perhaps, it wasn't the fuel pump.
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

exactly. that is why before anything is replaced on a vehicle, proper troubleshooting is mandatory, or you are just handing money over to him and nothing is getting fixed.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
