NISSAN TRUCK ENGINE PROBLEM

1997 Nissan Truck • 15,600 miles

Have check engine light on. Would not pass smog. Got code for a canister purge control valve. Bought one and change it out. The problem is can't reset engine light. Read all the forums, like turn key on press gas pedal 5 times wait 7 seconds press gas for 10 seconds and your supposed to get a blinking light. My truck does none of that. One blog said to disconnect your battery for two hours, I did and now cant even get it to crank at all. Battery seems charged. Did I screw up the Engine control module in some way? Tried jumper start no help. Does anyone have any suggestions.

thanks

None of that stuff fixes anything.

The code has to be tracked down and find the failure, repair it and then do a drive cycle and lastly get the test done.

As far as the no start, start with basics, compression, fuel pressure and spark.
