Question about 2002 Nissan Altima

1999 Altima will not start, no power to Crank Position Sensor

I have a 1999 Altima GXE, automatic; when the key is on or while cranking, I am not getting power to the crank sensor located on transaxle. All fuses are fine. The brown wire is supposed to be hot when key is on. Its not hot coming out of ECU. I wanted know if something else feeds the wire circuit or does the ECU supply the power to the crank sensor.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

The crank sensor is only a reference and shouldn't cause it not to start. I would look elsewere for your problem ie camshaft position sensor which is built into the distributor. This is amore likely cause of your no start condition.

Either there is a bad or dirty battery connection which is allowing the lights but no crank or you could have dirty or loose starter wires or starter relay may be bad or ignition is a possibility. All these can be tested with an ohmmeter for power. I would start with connections

It acts like it is going to start, but it won't turn over. New fuel filter, no change... any ideas? 1999 Ford Taurus.


If you can hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to the run position, then you turn key to start car...and the car will start and run for one or two seconds...then you may have a bad crank position sensor. Go to autozone.com, become a member and look up crank position sensor for your car. There will be a tutorial on testing and replacement.

CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR 20002 NISSAN ALTIMA


1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.
