Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When you turn the key to the ON position, is the Security light on Solid?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

Did you change the upper 02 sensor or the rear 02 sensor on bank 1? Bank 1 is the side of the engine closest to the fire wall.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
its same cranks but not starting , i have alreaddy changed crank angle sensor, all spark plugs, all coils genuine , fuel presure ok, but no spark
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

Are the Crank sensor and Cam Sensors after Market also?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

It is very common for after market sensors to cause no start issues with no codes.. That is why I am asking.

Also when you turn the key to the ON position, does the Radiator fans come on?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It did first, but no
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

Did what? Radiator fans were coming on when the key is turned on?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
fan came on as the k3y was turned on , it does not come on when trying to crank
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

That is a indication of possible control unit communication issue. Have you scanned the vehicle for codes?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
As i mentioned earlier have used autel, gscan, snan on verus edge, autoland scanners with no code
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

You were able to communicate with the control units? Did you check all fuses?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I called auto electrician he check every fuse relays, another electrician who does key programing, check said key immobilser bcm etc ok
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

Did they do a full CAN system test to make sure all control units are communicating?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It was done by electricians
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

Full system scan of all control units?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I did system search with 3 differet scanners
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
But no code
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

Were they all advanced level scanners that can communicate with the ABS, Engine, Transmission, Unified Meter, IPDM and so on?

Can you sugest hot this will start and run only thing i can thing of timming chain jumped or ecu needs checked and recaliberated sugestions
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Every electrician mechan8c gave up
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

This is a easy way to determine if you have a timing chain issue. Unplug bank 2 cam sensor and see if the car starts.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

If it still does not start, plug it back in, and unplug the Bank 1 cam sensor. Then see if it starts.

If it does, only let it idle.. Not to be driven .. This is only a test.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
