No ... the bearings are failing around the armature inside the starter causing it to ground out against case the power needed to light it...replace starter

I replaced my battery in my 2002 nissan maxima now it wont start, wont even turn over, just a click sound. The day before new batter cleaned the ternimals on old battery and jumped it and it started fine....

Wiggle the bsattery terminals while someone else is trying to start car and see if that works. if not have some try to tsrat car as you bang on the starter which is directly to the left of the air box and down. you can use a tire iron or a hammer with a long metal object to bang on.

'95 nissan starting issues

On top of the starter unplug the solenoid wire. Then make a jumper wire with a spade connector on one end about four feet. plug this into the solenoid and use the other end of the wire to tap the positive side of the batt. this should engage the starter if all is well. if it dosen't, then the problen is the starter.

Sounds like a starter motor problem. Possibly a sticky solenoid. Try rocking the car or giving the starter and solenoid a hard bang with a hammer.
