Question about 2007 Nissan Murano SE

Open Question

2007 Murano, 38K mi. Will not start - engine not turning over.

On a couple of starts I noticed the starter dragging. Now it just clicks and will not turn engine over. I checked the battery cells - all full. Checked the battery connections - tight and clean. Checked the battery with a volt meter and registers OK. Lights, radio, everything works. The clicking noise is not like a battery too low to engage the starter. It is a rapid continuous clicking.

    you are describing the exact same issues I am having. I have a 2007 Murano as well. I just turned over 50,000.

    Did you ever find out what the problem was. Mine started yesterday. Thank god I was parked in my driveway at the time.

    I am worried it might be a major issue.


  • karen_0517 May 17, 2009

    I guess I should have worded differently. I started having the same issue yesterday. My car is still not starting. However, I though I did notice a little lag in the turnover of the car a day earlier.

    Ok.... update.

    So my issue was the battery. I got a jump and it started right away. Took the car to Auto Zone where they did a battery diagnostic and it turned out the battery was very low, and bad.

    New battery is in place and is up and running back to normal.

    volt meter reads 12v? Connections at starter and block are also tight & clean? Did you have battery load tested (shorted cell will read 12v but connection internally fails when loaded) When attempting to crank, what is the battery voltage with key to start?

    What was the volt meter reading when you checked the battery?

SOURCE: Starter Switch Does Not Start Engine

HI,
It sounds to me like the starter / solenoid area needs attention - I think the clicking will be the solenoid activating but the starter is not turning. Do the lights dim to zero when you turn the ignition switch? If so, it may be the starter itself at fault; if not, then the electrical connections to the starter should be checked for corrosion. If the terminal are hot after trying to start, that's a sign of corroded terminals.
Let me know how you get on.

Cheers, D

SOURCE: Rapid clicking noise coming from under the dashboard.

If you have a tape cassette player in the dash, this can cause a sound like what you are describing. Even though a tape is not in it,,, it can still freak out and cause this sound. Had this happen on several of my old vehicles. Let us know if this helps. Leave feedback for others to see. Thanks.

SOURCE: Put in new battery. Brake

Is there an immobilizer or anti theft system in this vehicle?

If so, the key may have to be reprogrammed to accept it before trying to start it due to loss of battery power to the computer.

Or the park/neutral safety switch somehow is not allowing power to the starter because it thinks that the car is in gear. Jiggle the gear shift with the brake engaged.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano and the engine will not turn over. The engine has a clicking sound and all of the lights/windows/gauges work fine.


if its a single click every time you turn the key to the start position than the starter is probably bad. If its multiple clicks when you hold the key in the start position its probably a weak battery.

2009 murano will not start, just clicking sound


If it is a rapid click test battery with a load tester (carbon pile type the best) it may be charged but have no capacity. If there is a single click from the starter when try start test voltage at starter solenoid activation lead you may have voltage drop (if below 9v you can fit an inline 30 amp relay to boost the circuit. Also check body earth to engine. If none of these work please advise with additional information.

2004 nissan murano wont start.battery is good but when i turn the key i have nothing.


Please check your solenoid switch on starter motor. You should hear click sound while you try start the engine (You may need another person help to do this).If no sound at all, the problem is there and need to fix / replace.

How do you tell if a starter is going bad


The starter will drag and not turn the engine over very fast. The starter solenoid is part of the starter also. It will just click a few times before it starts turning the engine over if it is going bad. It will steadily get worse. You will have to click the starter solenoid several times before it will start after several times. Eventually it will not engage the starter.
If this helps please rate by clicking the 4 thumbs ups. Thanks!

If when you do try to start it and you can hear a click. It could be the starter going out. One way to check is when it happens hit the starter with something hard, several times, you will not hurt it. you might have to try it a couple of times. If it starts then the starter is bad. replace it.

If car wont start and clicking sound is heard this is a battery related or starter related, if your car battery is in good condition (which I think it was) then the problem is your starter, have it check to confirm.

Check the start solenoid, starter side, when you turn the key... The battery side will always be hot, the starter side should be hot when you turn the key.
