problems with 1997 nissan pathfinder security system

Asked by Mar 16, 2017 at 09:56 AM about the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder 4 Dr LE 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1997 Nissan Pathfinder won't start. It turns over but won't start. We've replace the ignition relay, fuel pump relay, distributor, distributor cap and rotariy button, and the map sensor. We don't know what else to do. My security light keeps flashing all the time and we think we might have triggered the security system. We are doing the repair ourselves. My dad is a old school mechanic but he's never worked with a pathfinder before. Does anybody know how to disable the security system?
