90 Maxima check engine light

start

#1

My 90 Maxima does not start. The check engine light does not come on when key is in the on position


#2

Please explain exactly what “does not start” means.


#3

Check the fuses for the ECM and EFI. IF the CEL does not light for a few seconds, indicating self-check mode, Then there is a problem with the ECM. Worst case is a bad ECM. But, I’d check fuses and wire harness before replacing the ECM.


#4

This could be a bad ignition switch. Looky here: http://www.autozone.com/R,3819184/vehicleId,1007801/initialAction,partProductDetail/store,1140/partType,00189/shopping/partProductDetail.htm

Engine cranks, but does not fire.
