Question about 1994 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

My 1994 Nissan Maxima won't start...

I removed starter & battery, had them both tested their OK. But when I try to start the vehicle the only sound I hear is one click in the dash per each time I try to turn the car over. When I turn the ignition all items go through their cycles. I drove the car this morning and it started fine this afternoon, nothing. What else could it be?

Neutral safety switch on the transmission may be defective, also does it have a factory security system? it may be locking u out from starting it.

My 2000 Nissan Maxima will not start-no clicking, just dead. The battery was tested and is good.


You probably need a new starter. Try locating the starter and hit on it 2 or 3 times, then try starting the vehicle again......If it starts then you need a new starter.

1997 Nissan Maxima - won't start; engine doesn't turn over; I hear only a "click" sound; Checked the battery - It's good, took the starter up to Pep Boys and checked - it rocks, just...


This sounds SO-O-O-O familiar! There are all kinds of variables here.

First, why was the alternator replaced? Did anyone ever perform a charging sytem test on the vehicle before making this decision?

If the alternator was in fact bad, it is VERY COMMON for a shorted cell in a battery to be the CAUSE of the alternator going out. Has the battery been PROPERLY tested?

Then I have a serious problem with taking the starter off of the car to have it "checked". What is anybody going to do with the starter off of the vehicle? Put some battery power to it and see if it spins? Just because it spins on a "bench test" does NOT mean that it is good, or that it has enough power to actually turn an engine over.

You probably only have something really simple like a bad battery cable causing this whole thing!

1994 nissan maxima - engine will not turn over, seems to be electrical as I did get it to start once , but when I turned it off it would not start again. checked all fuses and they are good. Could it be...


It is possible but unlikely, the ignition switch is pretty rugged and dosn't give much trouble.
Check the starter motor connections , try hot wireing direct from the positive terminal of your battery to the starter to ensure that the starter is not the problem.
If the starter is Ok investigate the shifter lockout that stops the car starting in gear, they sometimes get dirty or break.

Ok my 1994 ford temp will not start the battery is ok and the starter clicks but won"t start


Your starter motor is likely bad, but before you remove the starter, take the battery and get it tested, you may have a bad battery, just because the lights and accessories work doesn't mean that your battery is not underpowered under a load. If the battery checks out o.k. remove the starter and have it tested at your local parts store. good luck.

96 Nissan Maxima. Has new starter. Wouldn't


Did you have the new starter tested befor you installed it? Was their a lot of corosion on the battery cables? The cables might be corroded as well cousing too much resistance for the starter to crank.
