Having problems with your Nissan Altima ?
My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not even a click. All light are ok, stereo, wiper, etc. battery is only months old. I pulled out the starter, have it tested at Advance Auto Parts and it worked just fine. There are a couple of things I suspect maybe causing it: ignition fuse, starter relay, ignition switch,neutral safety switch, ignition module. The problem is, which one? Need help ASAP.
If you look under the hood, there is a starter relay that might be the problem - but more common than that, - Do you have an alarm system of anykind? If so, It sounds alot like that is the problem, and they are notorious for causing "no start" problems as such - Unfortunatey, the wiring for these (even to just remove one) can be rather involved (as they often cut the starter wire to install an interrupt) so you may have to take it to an auto electric shop, or one that specializes in alarm systems - Also, dealers sometimes install special "electronic lot key systems" in all of their new cars, requiring that the "electronic key" must be present in the vehicle (along with the correct physical key) in order for it to start - I'd check for one of those systems as well - Hope that helps...
Keep it simple, start with the fuse...put car in neutral see if it starts(neutral safety switch) , then check for corrosion on your starter relay by removing all connections one at a time and lightly rubbing them with sandpaper or a wire brush. You can purchase "purple goop" to cover electrical connections to keep this from occuring.
