Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
i just recently had a 2000 model nissan maxima 3.0 twin cam given to me and for some reason I cant get it to crank. I have about 15 years experience in repair but I cant figure this one out. I put a new battery in the car and tried to crank it and it wouldnt crank. It was wrecked in the front bad enough for the air bags to deploy and I just thought since everything else in the car came on, it might crank. I replaced the starter after having it tested and they said it was bad. So I just put the new starter on it and it will not turn over by the key but if I jump the signal wire on the starter it will spin over. It never rolls the motor over though. Im confused as to what would cause this. I have checked the distance from the starter gear to the flywheel and it matches up. I just didnt know if maybe there was an inertia switch in the car or if the air bags being deployed in the wreck it was in may had shut the car down. Any answers or comments will be greatly appreciated. Thanks So Much For Helping.
