When you turn the switch, it doesn't do anything. The engine doesn't turn over... The only sound is a clicking at the fuse box. Lights all work, battery is good. Any help would be appreciated!
How long have you had this problem? A week
Need to know where the reset switch is for the fuel pump on my 1997 Nissan Altima
What parts are needed? What are the estimated costs?
Sometimes when I'm driving it seems to lose power making it run rough. It idles back n fourth just enough where the car wants to shut down. 9 out of 10 its more likely to shut off. It will turn over but sometimes it doesn't want to. I have to press the gas hard.
replacing broken glass
all of a sudden switch wont change from a/c vent to floor or defrost
My compressor starts cools this shuts off based on the outside temp. And when I increase blower speed it stops blowing cold air.
The light has been on for almost 2 years
I just bought a 1994 Nissan altima 5 speed and am having some problems leaving me clueless.

1.) Ever since I got the car home I have had to jump start it. I got a brand new battery but still not starting. The lights and all come on when turning the key over and heater starts blowing. However there is a red box looking thing on the battery cable that if I hit it or move it around the car starts after 40 mins of messing with it. But even with the old battery the lights came on but nothing more. WHAT CAN BE THE ISSUE FOR THIS?????

2.) My driver side strut spring makes a very loud popping noise when I make any kind of turn. You can also feel it pop too. I seen they had a recall for something like this back in 2010 can u tell me if I'm correct. And if I can still get it fixed if it hasn't been yet.

Thanks for helping

I start the car and activate the a/c and it works well for about three minutes then the clutch stops prematurely
