2003 Altima will not start Sign In

Mad This is the forth time this has happened, I go to start my 2003 Altima 2.5L with over 185000 miles on it. I have ppl tell me its the battery. Then its the wiring, then its the starter etc. Battery us new starter is new altenator is new. All fuses are all good. It just will not crank. Fuel injectors are good as well. So what's the problem I do not know this is a new problem that as a novice mechanic cannot figure it out.

Nobody can tell you with more than a useless guess unless they get to troubleshoot the circuit at the moment it fails.

You can hear the injectors click and everything turns on it just will not start. Could it be a bad ignition switch? I took a look at the fuses in floor planel and in the engine compartment. Some of the fuses did not align up from the display and some were the wrong fuses. I fixed those, and yet nothing. I checked to see if it was getting power. I used a screw driver and touched positive and negative on the altenator and starter. Both sparked. So I know the wiring is good. And electricity is good. It's the start and go that's a problem.

It could be any of dozens of things and until it is troubleshooted during the failure, no one is going to know.

If you keep up that crap you'll be buying a couple thousand in computers.

You should stop right there. You should take it to a professional and have it checked out before you make it worse than it already is.
