Hi Kelly,
sounds like your battery is a bit sick. Or it could be the starter motor solenoid sticking.
The click you are hearing is probably the starter motor solenoid. If you hear a series of loud clicking its usually due to a flat battery in which case you need a jump start from another car.
If you can get someone to charge up your battery using a portable charger and the car starts OK, its a fair bet your battery is on it's way out. You can get your battery tested at any large reputable auto repair shop.
If the battery is OK, the solenoid can get stuck on your starter motor. Often a light tap with a rubber or wooden mallet can free up a stuck solenoid, but ultimately you will need a new starter motor. (BTW The solenoid is the smaller bit attached to your starter motor. There will be heavy wires attached to it) Have a look at link 1 below for more info.

Have a look here for some info to help you understand your starter circuit:

Nissan pulsar '88. replaced starter motor, then


Is it a manual, or an automatic? Earlier Nissans sometimes have a problem with the neutral safety switch (a device that keeps the engine from rolling over in gear or without the clutch depressed.) Generally, if their bad, they need to be a little warm before they'll start, like setting in the sunlight for a few hours.

Good Luck!

My nissan pulsar 89 model won't start turns over fine but just won't start


There are only two problems but many solutions. Check if there is fire to the plugs. If there is fire check if there is gas going to the cylinder. Once you determine which of these you can address the specific problem.

2000 Nissan Pulsar N16


you have to keep in mind that the starter is exposed to extreme heat and after that many miles it's natural for the parts to fail. considering that the vehicle has 200,000km this is not a sign of poor design of parts but just a typical symptom of longevity. just get it replaced as well as the battery and you should be fine.......please rate this

Nissan pulsar ecm light keep coming on one day when driving had a splatter and conked out now wont start tried two new computers that didnt work geting spark to distributor but not from it replaced...


The main problem that I know with the nissan pulsars are actually the (other than gearboxes :P) are the cluster gauges, Let me assume for a moment that your thermostat gauge wasn't working... Let me now assume you were on some sort of highway when the light continued to come on... and then let me farther assure that you were losing a fair bit of power... Cross your fingures and hope that I'm wrong because if I am correct then when you put two and two together you get an over heated engine... Other than that my ECM light comes on all the time.. I just ignore it now (since i last replaced my engine). Other Issues or questions that I have for you now hopin it aint a dead engine, Does the starter motor try to turn over at all (sound like it has a dead battery) If so and the battery is fine a great thing to do (even if it aint turning over at all) is grap urself some high quality cable, such as your jumper leads, get a good connection on some METAL on your engine and put the other end of you jumpers onto the negative on ur battery, this may be a simple earthing issue, known to cause lots and lots of trouble but at the end of the day... an easy fix.

If this dosnt do it and the starter motor isnt turning over at all and your sure that you have a good battery it could also be the starter motor... dont worry about buying a new one... these can be bench tested very easily with a car battery, jumper leads and a screw driver (somthing to jump the circuit)

You say that you replaces you distributor so I'm not gonna mention anything about that as I'm assuming you know the new one works fine ;) but hey dont fret.... its a car and simply a mechanical piece of equiptment


You need three things to start your engine.... (not including fuel which you could check :P jks) A working Startermotor thats kicking in, Spark and compression.... if you got spark and the startor motor then your problem is your engine...

Also one thing i didnt mention is you ignition switch... when you turn your key on do you hear a sorta click noise coming from around your fuse box... maybe you should check your ignition switch :O\
well best of luck and lemme know how it all goes
