Went out yesterday morning to start the car, and it turns over but will not
fire. Plenty of gas. Good battery, lights work, radio etc. Starter turns the
engine but that's it. Any ideas? 6 months old with 6,100 miles.
Well a funny thing happened to me once. I blew a small fuse that controls if I recall correctly, the ignition control module.
Under the hood, there's a panel near the washer fluid container. Remove the little fasteners, and beneath is a fuse panel. It can be pulled out to gain access to the fuses and relays at the side. They are the mini type fuses that you can't see through to tell if they've blown or not. You'll likely need a circuit tester, or I bought a little mini-fuse tester specifically for them.
Go through them and likely its could be the 15A one on the ignition control module.
Sorry to raise a thread from the dead, but I didn't want to be redundant.
Anyway, I was driving down the highway last night when I tried to pass someone...and my car didn't go any faster. I then tried the manual shift (I have a 5A) and it was stuck in 5th. So, I tried my best to keep the car alive all the way to the dealership. When I got there, we tried starting the car again. No dice.
Ended up it was the cam (crank) position sensor. They replaced both (had no idea there was a "both"). Under warranty, so it's all good.
What is it with these cars and cold temperatures. Don't nissan test their vehicles in sub-freezing conditions. For past two weeks (freezing temps on the east coast) everybody is having problems with HUs, starters, etc,etc, etc.
