1997 Nissan Pickup: Newbie Help - No Start, No Crank
I just inherited a 1997 Nissan Pickup with A/T and promptly put a good dent in the drivers side front corner (between the front wheel well and the turn signal on the side) due to a parking post that was not high enough to see out the windshield. The post was fine but as for the truck...as I and drove off the speedo and odometer didn't work.
Then when I shut it off, it would not start - just a click. All other electrical things work (fan, windows, etc) but no crank.
The engine bay on the drivers side front corner was dented in a bit but there were no wires that were cut (but maybe the wire loom was pinched?) and there are a couple of relays in that corner (they "looked" fine). No obvious damage. The intake hose that runs from that corner to the air cleaner assembly was knocked off kilter, but the air cleaner assembly was not affected.
Was a wire pinched somewhere in that corner? Were the relays damaged? What else could cause these symptoms (no speedo while driving, then no crank on start) - that will help me figure out what to do.
