I drive a 2002 sentra spec v. I have recently been having intermittent problems where sometimes I can start my car and other times I cannot start my car.
There are two major conditions that will determine if my car starts; however, under all conditions, my starter is cranking, rrr rrrr rrr rrrr rrrrr.
I know my car is not going to start when I do not see the check engine light on my gauges when I turn the key to the on position. I know my car will start when I CAN see the check engine light when I put my ignition into the on position.
When I do not see the check engine light on my gauges when I put the key into the on position, I cannot hear the priming of the fuel pump. When I see the check engine light on my gauges, I can hear the priming of the fuel pump.
What would cause the gauge to not have the check engine light show up when the key is in the on position?
I have a new alternator, spark plugs, and ECM. I replaced my cam/crank sensor about 20-25,000 miles ago. My headlights, radio, power mirrors, interior lights, and as well as my wipers work (and they move very quickly).
I have no idea what to do other than buy a new harness and pay someone to rewire it. Buy a new fuel pump relay????
Please, if you have any suggestions, I am all ears. I need to get to work reliably. Its cold outside.
