No start! No spark! No check engine light coming on when key turned on

Asked by Mar 11, 2017 at 11:34 PM about the 1998 Nissan Pathfinder 4 Dr SE 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 98 Nissan Pathfinder SE 3.3 V6
Automatic 4x4 and it won't start. No spark
No check engine light when you turn the key
on and no connect to PCM/ECU when you
try to read the codes with a scanner. All the
fuses and relays look good and wiring. Any
ideas before I start tearing It apart looking
for an open circuit to the ECU/PCM?

I feel that Nissan is avoiding this question cause no one seems to have the answer, I paid twenty buck to ask the pros at nissan why is it that all i did was change my battery and now I get nothing! No dash,dome,horn and definitely no start! But no one seems to know how to solve this issue that so many customers are having!! Idk maybe nissan yanked all of us on this one!!
