Customer Question
2014 nissan pathfinder cranks...

2014 nissan pathfinder cranks but won't start after battery removal then reinstalled

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the engine's fuel supply? And the spark plugs -- are they all working?

I checked ignition fuses under the hood and dash, could it be the security system locked out?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pathfinder yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, every thing is back together. I was changing a cooling fans and You have to bring it out from the battery side

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes does it make a difference which battery post is connected first positive or negative n the newer cars?

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

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No fans are running
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

Ok.. Do you know if you have a factory or after market remote start in the car?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The car has a factory key remote start but is does not start the car either
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

How do you remote start the car normally?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

It ran fine before you did the fans right?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
You lock the door then press the remote button twice then hold it down on the second press. It is now trying to crank with the key but battery is running down now.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

Ok.. Just making sure. Cause a after market remote start system can cause the vehicle not to start after the battery is disconnected.

Vehicle ran before you did the fans right?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
What if I spray some starter fluid in the intake Yo see if I have ignition, also I may need to boost the battery. Yes vehicle ran fine before fans were changed. Only thing that was disconnect was the battery and a block grd wire.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

Try checking and cleaning the block ground wire and make sure that is tight. Lets charge the battery and when you try to start it, press the accelerator pedal a little and see if it starts..

Don't want to try the starter fluid thing yet..

Where is the fusible link that dealership was talking about?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

If you press the start button two times so the ignition comes on, is the security light on solid?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

You have all electrical power right? If you didn't, then I would suspect fusible link. That is located of the positive battery terminal.

Do you have a test light?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
When You press the start button in the car interior lights on dashboard comes on press it again lights go out on dash which says goodbye. There is a little red car symbol that shows on the dash that flashes when you press the key a third time.

No solid security light when pressing the start button twice. Got to charge my phone 7%
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

ok..Do you have a test light? Can we just double check all fuses with it if you have one?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The nissan owners manual says the flashing red car is a operational security system. I'll check the fuses for the fuel system.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

Check all fuses with a test light to verify they are all good.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Pin to pin on top of fuse or pin to grd?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

Leaving the fuse in and back probing both sides of each fuse with the ignition on to make sure all fuses are good and getting power..
