Your Starter is located on the bellhousing of the, or going into, transsmision (this is the part of the transmission that connects to the engine). The starter is mounted, either to the engine or bellhousing, by 2-3 bolts. You will have one RED cable (Positive) attached to the rear of the starter. This cable needs to be removed and it is a good idea to hang on to the hardware just incase the new one doesnt have any. You are not likely to find a black (Negitive/Ground) wire attached to the starter as it finds its ground through the Engine/Transmission, but if you do this is a redundent ground, remove it also. Remove the afformentioned 2-3 bolts that mount the starter, and remove the starter. Place the new starter in and place your mounting bolts back in. Reattache your wires and you are ready to start it!

I have a Pathfinder, and I believe the fuel pump on some models were just recalled so you may be able to get the part for free at a Nissan dealership. Same problems with my car, though mine starts back up when it stalls out. I would check the list of recalled parts for your pathfinder, then take it to the dealership.

youre going to need to get a volt meter and have someone hold the key in the start posistion while someone else goes under the vehicle and test to see if there is voltage at the starters smaller wire. if there is, replace the starter.

1994 Nissan Pathfinder won't start, even jumping it.


I had a similar problem w/ my 94 Pathfinder. The problem was a cheap security system that was offered in that year model and the wiring between the ignition and the starter was run through this system. The dealership was able to by pass the security system and this fixed the problem. For years other mechanics told me it was the starter but I knew it was something else.

I had a 1994 pathfinder with the same problem. Direct wire the load pin on the starter solenoid to the positive terminal on the battery with a push-button switch between and mount it on the dash of the car. You will also need to disconnect the existing wire on the load pin of the solenoid and tape it up. This will allow you to engage the starter without the key using the push button, however, you will still need to crank the key to the start position while turning the motor over to give you fuel pressure.

Maybe a temporary solution for you but its worked on my pathfinder for more than 2 years.

Replacing a starter and starter relay on a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder


Starter relay is located in a "fuse box" these rearly go out. Check your starter to make sure you are getting power to it when you turn your key. if so then worry about the relay or the Starter Solenoid.
