Having problems with your 1998 Nissan Altima ?
Nissan altima starts when battery is reconnected
\015 After i connected the battery i noticed the dashboard lights, fans, accessories all turned on, but the keys were not in the ignition. I wiggled the positive terminal slightly (bolts were all still finger tight) and it sparked and the engine turned over and the car kept running. I disconnected the ground and it died after about 20 seconds. \012\012A few notes:\012\0121. I noticed the clamp for the positive cable seems a bit corroded and there;s blue powder on it. I dont know if this is an issue i should be worried about. \0122. I should also say that the car was in an accident and few months ago, and I haven;t driven it while i've been repairing the front end. I hit a phone pole at about 10mph, and it was enough to crack the radiator and smash the front bumper. \012\012Thanks\015
