93Z has power, but won't start

I have a '93 Z32 which was running fine until just the other day. Now it wont start. Everything turns on and the car has full power, but just won't start. I replaced the starter, ignition switch and battery. I'm out of ideas. Anyone know what's up?

You mention everything turns on but does it crank when you try to start it?

Z32 Non-Start (Nothing Happens?)

https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update...1581116153856/After much diagnostic activity the solution finally jumped out; a $3.30 ("cough drop") clutch pedal stop from Nissan...you can see where it goes by looking up the pedal arm and finding a circular opening in the "holding bracket" (my term...it is shown but not called out in the FSM)...without taking anything apart...what this plastic part does is depress the safety switch, allowing current to flow to the relay...hence the starter motor..you have probably seen pieces of green plastic lying on the floor mat under your clutch pedal...a tip-off is the manual does not show any adjustment numbers for the clutch pedal.

08.02.2018_saw more green plastic under the clutch pedal, went to Nissan wholesale parts; now this same plastic button was $14.00 (after shop discount)
(these cars must have two of these, cause the previous one is still good)

I had the same problem about 3 months ago. Try changing the starter relay. It is located in the wheel well of the front driver side tire. Worked for me! Goodluck!
