Nissan Versa will not start or even react to key in ignition
My Versa didn't want to start up today. At first inserting the key and turn part
way lit up the dash lights and turned on the radio, however turning the rest of
the way to start the car had no reaction whatsoever, not a single noise, or
click or even attempt to crank. This has happened before, I usually just
remove the key, wait about 1 minute then start the car without a problem.
However, this time the car did not start, even after waiting. I tried to jump the
car thinking the battery might be the problem (it is about 5 years old now) but
nothing happened, not even the dash lights or radio came on when the key
was half-way turned. I would be grateful for any advice to begin diagnosing
the problem, I'm strapped for cash but halfway handy with tools and general
fixing things. Thanks.
make sure the batt. terminals are clean and snug , scan for codes even the light ain't on , look for any loose or worn wires , check the main fuses , the on going problem may have toasted one , let us know what happens
Did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same problem
I would check the starter. When the brushes get worn they don't make contact when worn short and the the quick try makes an arch and contact and continues to turn the starter over. I would say the brushes are totally gone now.
Yea, I surf often, and I would take my key with me in the water. Turns out you shouldn't take a key with an electronic chip for a swim. I guess the chip went bad then the ignition couldn't recognize it so wouldn't start the car as a safety feature, at least that is what was explained to me. A few months later I also found my positive battery terminal was slightly loose.
