It's clear to me that you have identified the main cause of this: Fuel is NOT getting into the engine. You noted that there doesn't appear to be any fuel in the fuel filter, so the next step is to determine WHY that is the case. Is there a fuel shut-off valve? Is there a fuel screen that is blocked? Is the fuel line pinched or clogged? What about the ...

The issue has nothing at all to do with the radio. The CAL ERR is sent to the radio via wire A1 via the connector on the back. It tall the radio that there is a key to anti theft error. The code CAL ERR is just short for Callabration Error from your Key. from off turn key to run without thurning the engine over and letting it sit for 15 minutes, then turn ...

I think your first reaction is true. It's most likely the ignition switch. Causes for this may include too many keys or weight on his key chain. Replace the ignition switch and recommend to limit weighted key chain.

When you replace a battery in a nissan that has an electronic throttle body, you must perform a throttle body relearn procedure. Did you do that? If not, you'll wind up with a surging idle since it no longer remembers the home position.

It certainly could be something like what's happening in that Harley video (which seems to be a damaged starter motor winding). First, definitely not good practice to run the starter when the bike is running. That could definitely damage teeth on the starter assembly or the starter clutch. Second, it's not too difficult to pull the starter. In fact, you ...

This sounds like you have a power leak somewhere draining the battery as it sits overnight. This could be a simple as a map light being left on or a trunk light or something similar staying on due to a faulty switch. The other cause of a power leak would be a short in a wire or component that isn't bad enough to blow its fuse but enough to drain the ...

Sounds like your battery terminal connectors are stretched to the point that they are loose even when the bolt is fully tightened. Best fix would be to replace them with new connectors. Alternatively you could add a thin shim of metal between the post and the connector. Since the metal lead (battery post) has a high thermal expansion coefficient, my guess ...

Clearly there is an electrical connection problem, either external to the battery or internally. First of all, check the battery cables, both the (+) and (-) connectors. Disconnect them, clean off any debris or corrosion, make sure the terminals are clean, and reconnect the cables and tighten the bolts securely. That may resolve the problem at little or ...

Check fuel filter - if partially plugged it will produce this effect of not starting for about 20 minutes after it has been parked and allowed to sit for awhile. Eventually it will start again. My mechanic found it after about a week of other opinions - replacing the fuel filter might be the solution. It was for me.

There's likely some variation between the setup in different vehicles, but here's how it's set up on my manual trans Mazda 3 - The button will put the car into the 'ignition on' state if it is pressed while the clutch isn't down. There's no interlock with the brake or gear lever. As such you could do this before your helper starts pushing, or while in ...
