  1. Slartibartfast, Thanks for suggestions on testing power to the coil with the ohm meter. I just read on where the ECU or ECM is located and how to use it to get a code on what is wrong with Pathy. Will try the coil power test and then attempt to get a code off unit. Waited 3 days for new coil to come in, installed it today and that did not fix problem ! UGGG !! I am a Novice at working on computerize driven cars so I appreciate that you give me instructions in plain English and Not mechanic-ize !! Thanks, Fred3
  2. WE checked the old fashioned way. Took off wire put a screw into and touched it to ground. then tried spark plug. No spark from distributor from either. Took cap, off distributor and cranked engine, rotor spins so should not be timing belt. Replaced coil and no Go, checked fuses again, All good. Any clues on what to do next ?? Thanks Fred#
  3. D_Bomb17 Thanks for link to cardiagn ! Took a few minutes but found my exact model. Just have to download each section at a Time but FREE and adjustable. Thanks again, Big help https://cardiagn.com/1995-nissan-truck-pathfinder-d21-wd21-series-service-manual-pdf/
  4. SpecialWarr,  I need yr help to correctly identify this part.

    95 Pathfinder XE. You have been helping me diagnose & cure why pathy won't start.

    Here are the pictures of the part, I beleieve  is called the ignition control module, that tested Good at Autozone. is this really  the ignition control module ? or power transistor ?

     

    Thanks again for yr expertise and patience with me. New coil should be in today and really hoping that is the cure

  5. Here's picture of the part we had tested at Autozone and they said it was good. Is this the ignition control module. Worker at AZ called it something else. I want to be sure I am following the advice given to me correctly, by testing the right parts to get it started again ! Or is this the Power Transistor ? Are they 2 different parts or 2 different names for the same Part ? Thanks for your help & input , Fred3

      Slaribartfast,

  7. The engine does crank but will not fire so we ordered a new coil. Took Coil to have it checked again but Worker said it would not give accurate reading without a Load on it ! He tested 1 spark plug and it was not getting spark. There is no power/spark from Coil to the distributor. We went back to Autozone and Bill tested the Ignition Control module that seats on the intake manifold behind, the coil and it tested good. So we ordered a New coil and praying that is it !!

  10. I will ask my dad who is working on it. Took Coil to have it checked again but Worker said it would not give accurate reading without a Load on it !

  11. Special Warr, Thanks SO much for your Input. The Pathy will not fire at all now, after I had to jump it 4 times just to get it home. I bought it used and it was NOT maintained, AT ALL. Also the Owners manual was not in it so I am having a hard time finding a diagram that shows me where the Ignition module is . I have the VG30E engine.
  12. I need help to get my 1995 Pathfinder XE, auto trans going again. Was cutting out and then stopped all together. Replaced battery, dist cap, fuel filter, Coil checked out good at AutoZone but not sure if it was checked correctly. No spark and will not start ( obviously ) Had speaker hooked up in back of rig, that were stolen and at that time found the positive wire from them hanging down. That is when my problems started with engine cutting out, Could that angling positive wire have shorted out my system ??

     Thanks. I need all the help I can get, Fred

      For technical help it is best to use a standard forum topic, like the one you created here HERE.

      I am going to lock this Status Update so that replies trying to help are centered in the thread for simplicity :Aok:
