Customer Question
My nissan qashqai won't start...
My nissan qashqai won't start, I have checked all fuses etc. the car behaves normal until you attempt to start it. There is power at the starter but not at the solenoid. I can start the vehicle by shorting the solenoid with a screwdriver but that is the only way. Any help would be amazing v

Could you tell me where the power relay is? Where would I get a scan tool from if it isn't the relay?
UK Auto Mechanic: carlosbosch, UK Car Mechanic replied 3 years ago
the power relay is in the engine compartment to the left side and you find indication on the plastic cover of this box the scanner you find it in tools shop and there is many brands but it is expensive better to get the service from the dealer .
