My 2005 nissan altima won't crank or turnover. It justs makes this clicking noise. Can you help me?


The click is most likely the starter solenoid you hear

Should be a familiar sound you've heard may times
on other cars

I would guess you know how old the battery is?

If it is original,it is 8 years old & dead,if so, replace it

If it is only 3 years old ,check the voltage with a meter

Next the solenoid could be working as you hear it,but
it's contacts are burnt,it can be replaced

You remove the starter & change the solenoid

Don't want to do that, buy the entire starter at auto parts,
not a dealer,cost too much to even be there for any reason.

Car won't start, but make clicking noise


Sounds like you might need a new starter. If the lights and radio still come on, then you may need a new battery.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

The car died on sode of road now will not start but will try and turn over makes a loud clicking noise


Your alternator has died in which has drained you're battery, You wont be able to get home unless you get it towed. The loud clicking noise is normal, dont worry, all it is is you're starter trying to start the car but it doesent have enough power to do so.

My 2005 nissan altima will not start. I try to start it and it just makes a whirring noise.


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

If you have a Service Engine Soon light on, then most likely you need a cam or crank sensor. Those are the most common. I would have the car checked to verify.

Thanks Jay!

2005 nissan altima won't start, clicking noise is heard


It sounds like your battery is dead. You may be able to fix this with a jump start if you left your lights on over night. If a good jump does not work it may be your starter. but you should start with the simple and cheap solution first. Try having someone jump start your car.
