I have a 2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 Hatchback 6 speed that has been causing me months of problems so ill start from the beginning and blow your minds because even for the month it was at the dealership and when the "expert" tech came from Tennessee to New Jersey to check it out himself, he was mind blown.

November 2013-check engine light came on for crank sensor ONLY. my mechanic tried 3 different sensors (2 from dealership) but the car would only run with the original "broken" sensor. i was told either timing jumped/stretched or ECU needed to be reflashed. either way the car ran fine so i brushed it off, just had the CEL on.

March 2014-check engine light turned off for a solid month randomly, my inspection was up in April so i was giddy to get it to the inspection station. after going through inspection, i failed due to there not being enough output information sent from the sensors to their computer....i had many "not ready" highlight marks on my fail sheet.

i pushed off the inspection until April until things got worse. While delivering pizza the car would randomly stall at stop lights and parking lots with the clutch pushed in! if i sat in neutral and not moving and pushed the clutch in repeatedly, the car would stall. sad part is the car ran perfectly fine until it was at those low rpm's and it would struggle. my guess would be to replace everything in the fuel system. FPR, Pump, injectors, etc.

crazy thing is after the car stalled, the engine would turn over but would not start. if i rolled it and dropped clutch in first it would start and drive but once you came to a stop and pushed the clutch in the car would die. if i waited 30 minutes the car would then start up fine.

3 days later my check engine light came back on so i decided to go back to the dealer. on route to the dealer, the car dies on me at a busy intersection and i rolled up to it with the clutch in. (2 miles from dealer) so i had it towed and the dealer had it for a whole month, running tests, replaced the crank sensor multiple times and also cut and soldered on a new clip on the harness for that sensor. still nothing and the car refuses to start. they checked if my timing chain stretched but the results they got back dictated any real mechanical issue with the engine, so they told me the problem is electrical and probablyy my fault from my wire upgrade.

I have spark, dealer said i had plenty of fuel pressure although i believe he only checked by pulling the hose off of my fuel rail and saw fuel coming out.

I'm out of ideas, i do have a sound system in the car and i did my BIG 3 wire upgrade, as well as a bigger wire going to my starter, however the issues began PRIOR to the BIG 3 upgrade, but about 7 months after my initial sub/amplifier install so i don't believe they are related being the time frames don't match up. to do my big 3 i did split open my wiring harness to remove the old alternator to battery wire but the car ran fine for 3 months after i replaced those. i live in Northwest New Jersey. if anyone can help me out id appreciate it.

right now the sound system is 100% disconnected so i know there inst any interference. although i had an Apline PDX-M12 amp pushing 4 Polk Audio DXi 104 sub woofers. it was crazy bass so if i broke something that's causing this issue, i wouldn't be surprised.

if i don't get a response ill just replace my FPR and see if that changes anything. when i get the car home next week ill try and roll start it again as that was the only way it started prior to bringing it to the dealer.

THANKS!
