Question about 1995 Nissan Pickup

Truck won't start

The battery is fine, but the truck won't turn over or make any clicking noises.  Someone suggested it could be the starter solenoid.  What's the best way to diagnose the problem and fix it?

    I have the same problem. today i started the truck as usuall. when i went to turn it on the truck it did not seem to start. the truck makes the usual sounds, althought it makes more beeping sounds than before, I checked the battery and the battery is fine., the only thing i have doubts about is the terminals. due to age and the like, the connection is not very good, how can i change the terminals. and also, i am going to take the starter to have it cheked out and keep you posted. OH, could it be the starter relay?

If both have power replace starter.

Hope this helps. Mike

I have a spider box yerfdog 3206 wt i believe 150cc howhit engine. Won't start solenoid clicks but no power to starter. even direct power to starter wt solenoid bypassed starter won't kick in ? I have


this sounds like the starter is no good that`s why you get a click noise and why bypassing the solenoid it won`t turn over. the armature must be drawing more amps than what can be supplied.

I have a 1992 vigor and it ran up till the battery went bad and so I bought a new one and now the car wont start. It just makes a click noise and wont even turn over.


A click noise is from a bad solenoid or starter, not the battery. Have someone check out the solenoid and starter. Quick fix.

Van won't start. Only have clicking noise. Have a new battery and had the starter checked.


I know you had the starter tested but i still thing you have one of two things going on here, first acid damage to the Positive battery cable at the battery, if this is present you will notice the outside of the cable seems swelled yo under the red insulator, this causes low voltage, enough to click the starter solenoid but not enough to turn the starter motor. The other problem is burnt contact inside the starter solenoid itself, this problem will cause a clicking noise from the solenoid with no starter engagement, it very common. The starter solenoid is near the battery just follow the Positive cable from the battery to it, carefully jumper across it, does the starter engage? Here is a picture of the starter solenoid.

2004 Mini Cooper automatic.Car won't turn over. Battery indicating 14 volts using multi-meter. I get a single click when I turn the key, then nothing. I suspect bad solenoid. Not sure how to test/check...


if the clicking noise is from the starter,you can tap the starter while someone tries to start the car.if it turns over and starts then the starter motor will need to be replaced.if you can get to the starter,using the multi-meter you can check to make sure the solenoid is getting battery voltage at the wire that gets voltage when the key is turned.if you do and you have battery voltage at the larger wire on the starter then this will also indicate the stater motor has a bad spot in it and will have to be replaced.the clicking noise is usually an indication that the solenoid is working passing the voltage to the starter armature but the starter is drawing too much amperage to turn the motor over.either way its recommended to replace the complete unit as if the solenoid is bad the motor itself will usually go bad shortly after.

When attempting to start my car, there is a clicking noise. The battery seems to be fine, air comes on, radio and lights power on. Any suggestions? of coarse i will not start. I'm a single female with no...


You have a solenoid on your starter. The solenoid is what you most likely hear clicking. The battery seems to be fine from your info. The starter can be repaired with a new solenoid. It really depends on who you go to and what the charge is to repair. The battery sends power to the solenoid, the solenoid kicks power to the starter to turn the starter for your engine to start. Good Luck

Car wont start...sometimes


Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.
