Question about 2008 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

I have a 2008 Nissan Altima 3.5 I changed the battery and starter and the car starts but the starter wont disengage and making a horrible noise and is the same thing that made me change the starter.

The car was involved in a accident in front and back and sat for 4 months. We did a repair and replace on the radiator, fan, plenum cover, hoses and battery. Now there's a grinding sound once the car starts and sounds like the starter isn't disengaging. Replaced the starter which started 4 or 5 times and died. Any ideas

Wiring, relay, or the ignition switch. Swap relays first.

You need to look at a wiring diagram to see what controls the starter ! Possibly a starter relays contacts are stuck closed keeping B+ voltage applied to the starter ! You can find free wiring diagrams at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html .I also see a electronic control module is involved . There are two relays starter control relay and starter relay !

My 2008 nissan altima with push button start only makes a clicking sound and dash lights come on,the brake lights come on when i press the brake,and the battery is good in car and key fob


Whether or not the battery will allow the car to start will depend on the cranking amps it is still producing. Too little CCA and the starter motor will not kick over. Unless you specifically test the CCA the battery is producing you cannot say if it is "good" or not.

Try to jump start the Nissan from another vehicle with the engine idling in that vehicle. If the Nissan starts you know the battery in the Nissan is the problem and if the battery you have is 3 years or more old it can be suspect.

My 2005 nissan altima won't crank or turnover. It justs makes this clicking noise. Can you help me?


The click is most likely the starter solenoid you hear

Should be a familiar sound you've heard may times
on other cars

I would guess you know how old the battery is?

If it is original,it is 8 years old & dead,if so, replace it

If it is only 3 years old ,check the voltage with a meter

Next the solenoid could be working as you hear it,but
it's contacts are burnt,it can be replaced

You remove the starter & change the solenoid

Don't want to do that, buy the entire starter at auto parts,
not a dealer,cost too much to even be there for any reason.

2002 nissan altima wont crank?


Check the transmission neutral start inhibit switch is not the cause of your problem. (try both 'P' to 'N' positions).
If the headlights work ok there should be enough power in the battery to at least make a solenoid type noise when start is attempted- so it may not be caused by a faulty alternator.
Check the battery terminals are clean and firmly attached to the battery,
Check battery is properly grounded to the chassis and motor,
Check that +12v is available at the starter motor engage solenoid when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position - check any start slave relay operation.
If all above is OK, you may have a faulty starter motor.

Check tightness of the clamps on battery & make sure the earth cable is tight from battery to engine, also check tightness of nut holding the cable 2 starter motor if all ok there its most probably the solenoid on top of starter motor replace this with new all will b ok.

If the starter/solenoid is new/replaced, most likely the cable from the battery to the solenoid needs replacing or the connection ends saned and cleaned for a good electrical contact, Also chek the gound wire connections (if any)

1998 Nissian Altima Not starting


Nothing by either party was said about the starter. The battery and wires can all be in great shape, and if they are and the owner hears a clicking noise when trying to start it its a pretty good bet they may have a starter that's locked up.


One good 'ole trick on those starters. If you can reach the starter, a couple of sharp rapes with a hammer will have it starting again, then you know it time to replace the starter.
