Customer Question
Looking for Nissan Terrano...

Looking for Nissan Terrano advice 2.7Tdi turning over, but not firing

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Terrano?

1998 Had suggestions it could be the lift/primer pump in tank power supply to tank supply head unit but no noise I didn't think they had pumps back there in tank

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fluids recently?

Yes, all normal

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

HelloI found the thread about this, but thought I'd start a new oneI had my little trailer hooked up for the first time this year. While starting car at DIY store, she just spun over and over, tried it a few times then thought I'd disconnect trailer electrics. Another few tries and she started. Got home and switched her off, while I stored trailer, then she wouldn't start, dead battery click click click.I have had better issues before, the cross head screw bolt attaching Neg battery is prone to loosen if she idles for a long time.
Tried jump starting her with my other car, no joy. . . just turned over and over.
Took battery out and put it on charge for the night.Fired up computer and searched with "Google".
I found a mechanic on a forum saying to turn ignition off for 10 sec, then on for 2sec and repeat 3 times. Tried this in morning, but no joy.
Called AA for assistance, guy arrived and I explained what I'd tried.He double checked the fuel relay in fuse box, had power and clicked when engine cranked over.He then went to fuel tank to check "pump". . . had power supply but no sound or feeling of pumping. He eloped me park car on my drive (as it'd been on street overnight)I returned to Google and there is no electric pump back there, just a sender unit with power to fuel gauge float.I still think my trailer has blown or kicked out my immobiliser, or fried the engine management ECU. . . . . But would the plug in lighting board for a trailer effect the engine management . . ?Any suggestions . . . . ?

Mechanic's Assistant: What confuses you?

Is there a pump submerged in fuel tank

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