Hello to everyone,
my Nissan Note 1.2 gasoline manual sometimes does not turn on. Apparently it looks like an electrical problem but I'm not sure, it could also be a fuel pump problem. When I turn the key everything seems to work perfectly, I mean the starter motor, but the car does not start. Then after hours, trying again it works perfectly. This happens suddenly but not always. My mechanic (not nissan) tried to make a diagnosis but didn't see anything strange.
Has this happened to anyone?
Thanks for your reply

My 1.2 wouldn't start a few weeks back.
The starter motor operated but didn't sound good.
I hadn't used the car much due to covid conditions.
The battery was showing only 12.0 volts so i trickle charged it up to 12.7.
It then started first time and I've ran it several times since without problems.
The car has covered 47k.
I will now do a weekly test on the battery and charge it as required.
You may have a genuine fault, but that is all that was wrong with mine..enough power to make a starter sound, but not enough grunt to actually start the car.

Thanks Jymmer, but the battery is new and also with the electric booster from mechanic, it doesn't turn on.
When this problem arises there is nothing that can turn it on. Maybe it's an electronics problem....

One common issue is with the fusible link on the positive battery connection which blows, it can be repaired if you're handy with a soldering iron but it's always best to buy a new one if it has blown.

Ok thanks, I look for it and check if it is interrupted.

In the next few days I will have to go to the Nissan Garage for this problem. I hope to resolve with a more accurate test.
I will let you know.

Dear all,
I have been in Nissan but have not had any response. They would like me to leave the car there for days and days ... but that's not possible.

This week I used the Nissan Note to go to work, turning it on over and over again a day and I have not encountered the problem. I think to have a conclusion by doing some tests.

The Nissan Note 1.2 manual transmission has an electronic ignition system controlled by the electronic unit. In the moment that the key is turned on, an automatic ignition control of the electronic unit, switched on and increase the number of gear automatically for a few seconds. This process must not be hindered, so you must not press the accelerator before the engine is running. Compared to other old petrol cars, the Nissan Note does not need gas when starting.

What do you think about this conclusion?

Modern, fuel injected cars are under the control of the on-board electronics. They monitor everything from air to fuel for optimum running. I have never found the need to use the accelerator pedal until i actually need to move so, like you point out, leave the gas pedal alone until the engine fires into life.

My wife's Note 1.6 petrol auto, had a new battery recently after standing idle for a year. It seems the battery was connected, but only finger tight. So, it stood until one day, it just went dead, nothing worked. The mechanic just tightened the battery terminal and it went fully. No charge either (not a Nissan specialist).
