2005 titan will crank but not start

hi,
my truck had been running ok w/ the exception of the o2 sensors spitting out a code.
after parking the truck, it won't start back up. it cranks and cranks but will not start. It has a new battery so that is not it.
there are no codes to be read (keeps spitting 0000).
There is gas in the tank (7 gallons).
how can you know if it is a failed fuel filter or fuel pump? how can you know if it is a failed computer?
will using a starter spray (spray fule through the air filter opening) can help in troubleshooting?
Please advise?

thanks in advance,

Sound like ipdm problem. Try swapping relay with the fog light relay.

Re: 2005 titan will crank but not start

It could be a fuel filter but it sounds like an IPDM failure. My 04 did the same thing. I switched relays with the fog lights and have never had another problem. My dealer was no help; found the solution on Titantalk.

Re: 2005 titan will crank but not start

Hi,
I have ran a quick IPDM test (according to this website) and the truck's horn goes off as well as the wipers coming on. Supposedly this means it is running normal right?
Should I switch the IPDM anyway?

thanks again,

Not sure what the horn & wipers have to do with a failed ECU relay.

Re: 2005 titan will crank but not start

Just got my titans from the nissans deal with the same problem. The IPDM was going bad. I has the extended warranty on my truck and they change it under the warranty.

Re: 2005 titan will crank but not start

hi goldwings,
my truck will start on say Monday but not Tuesday and then start right up on Wednesday. Is this the same thing you were experiencing?
how can I confirm if it is the IPDM?
thanks again,
~jv

Re: 2005 titan will crank but not start

Swap the ecm relay with the fog lamp relay. If your truck fires right up, then replace the IPDM. Here's a diagram so you know which relays to swap. Good luck!

Re: 2005 titan will crank but not start

Hello all, I have the same problem. It started happening when it got cold. Would crank fine but no start in the morning after cold night. Then would start fine in the afternoon. Well now it won't start at all. I switched the relays in the ipdm but no change. It's an 08, any suggestions?
