1998 Nissan Altima GXE 4 Cyl 2.40L


My car won't start and we checked the distributor cap, fuel line and fuses. So I bought a fuel pump, strainer and filter

Still no start, then we use the tester to see if the wires in the fuel pump area to see if it was a spark. One showed a low light and the other showed no light . the relays were checked. Can you give me an idea on what the problem could be?

Ok, when checking the fuel pump wiring on this Nissan. The Black / Yellow wire is the wire (at the pump connector) that should have 12 volts during cranking. It should also have 12 volts for a few seconds when the key is turned to the on position (engine off). You can test these wires with a 12 volt test light. The only wire to pay attention to is the Black / Yellow. This is the power to the pump wire. So I will assume that you have checked the ignition for spark and you saw that you have spark. If you do not have power on the Black / Yellow wire, then you may have a bad fuel pump relay or an open fuse (fuse #17 - 15 amp).

Hi, we checked the relay and the fuse and it was ok. I remember when I took the car to the shop and they did a dianostic check and the codes 1505 and 1065 came up can you explain that to me.

Sorry my fault typing to fast but the codes were 1505 and 1605 not 1065.
