It should be underneath your car in between the firewall and the engine. Now you don't want to supply direct power to your starter because you'll end up frying it. However to just start the car once you've located the starter, get a long screwdriver with a plastic handle and connect the two wires with the screwdriver.

As for a long term fix, without investing the money to replace the necessary parts. You will need to attach a wire that can handle 12v to both wires on your starter separately. Then connect the other ends of both wires to a switch that can handle 12v, and mount that in your car somewhere. Then whenever you need to start your car just flip the switch on until the car starts then once it is started flip it back off.
I know this sounds like a lot but it is very doable with about $5 and a little bit of time.

I put a new ignition switch on my 96 sentra. I cant get it to unlock what am i doing wrong?


A new ignition switch will also need a new key to compliment it. Your old key will not work with the new switch that's probably why the steering won't unlock.

What do i need to do to replace a starter in my 97 nissan sentra?


first unhook the battery, remove the air cleaner box and ducting to the throttle body, you will see the 2 bolts for the top. you will then need to go under the vehicle(make sure the vehicle is properly supported), and you will see the bracket between the engine block and the intake manifold, remove it.the starter wire does not get removed from the starter, it has a connector about 4-5 inches away. disconnect it there. disconnect the battery cable from the starter, remove the last bolt and it will come right out. all in all it takes about 30 minutes. most places will charge a "core charge" on a product like this. dont be suprised, however when you return the old starter you will get your money back. let me know if you need further assistance.

I have a 1988 Nissan Sentra. When I turn the key


Your problem is definately not a relay. It sounds as if the starter contact in your ignition switch is bad. The solution is to replace the ignition switch.

I need to find the starter in a 96 nissan sentra and supply direct power to the solenoid to confirm that the ignitio switch is bad. who where is the starter and which wire do i supply the power to?


ase mechanic:
the starter is usually in front or back of engine. but always mounted next to the trans. to jump starter you have to apply voltage to small terminal, thats the ignition lead.

Nissan ga15 engine idle adjustment locations


The idle speed is computer controled, it is not adjustable, you most likely have sludge in the throttle valve and the idle speed control air bypass valve, clean them with carb spray with the engine running.
